3 Idiots .....is it really Best ever ?

This is start of 2010 and every Indian is talking about the 3 Idiots and media is going ga ga over the success of 3Is. I watched the movie online during our justication and in my views :


3Is is Kind of Best in following sense :

1. 'Aamir is not actor He is Brand' ; Aamir has delivered a blockbuster again and proved that he is the best when it comes attaching the word 'SUCCESS' to any movie. He continued to give 'SUCCESS' sticker to anything he attached to from Lagan to JTYJN to 3Is. He is best in this.He may not be perfactionist but he did all his best to achieve this title everytime he is involved. No doubt he should get 200% credit from changing his body from macho Sanjay Singhania to lollypop Ranchoo.This was great effort !!

2. Aamir is best when it comes to understanding the mantra of 'Box office performance' . No other actor is even closer to him. Although he plays a certain role in the film projects he has attached himself, but he makes sure that project gets success and so he gives his extra-ordinary contribution in every department of film from story to marketting and distribution. So he is best when it comes to performance at box office, Note following in support of my view :

- 3Is has released with most number of any Hindi movie ever( India 1550 prints and 342 prints overseas) in 40 countries.

- Paid previews of 3Is collected around Rs 9 crs gross worldwide

- Best ever Box office collection ( 200cr in 8 days ) as for as Hindi movie is concerned.

3. Best possible Team : Aamir,Rajkumar Hirani - Munnabhai fame , Vidhu Vinod Chopra- Munnabhai fame + Boman Irani-Best Hindi comedian of this decade.

4. Out of the beat story with good acting from Aamir,Sharman, Madhvan , Omi Vaidya( I like his style ) and offcourse Mr. Irani. It is important to note that story has played important role but it is not all as Mr. Chetan Bhagat is saying AFTER IT HAS GOT MUCH SUCCESS. Director and 3Is Team has done the great job from start to end.

Now come to the point why I think it is not Best ever :

1. The basic theam of the film is 'Winners don't do the different things they do it differently'. Even the Rancho's success was measred with number of patents ( 400 ). he did not embrace his same style throughout his life( as I was expecting the end to be ). In a way it has the same theme as other munnabhai films. If somebody says that Raju tried to copy the Munnabhai effect on Higher Education system.

2. Indian Education system is still the Best in world and we produce more genius Ranchoos from the same system.India's IITs and IIMs must be applauded for the world-class minds they have thrown up, these are institutions that are respected the world over.Let's get real about higher education, not engage in an escapist fantasy and convince ourselves that education does not matter. I am afraid that sometimes people take the theme of movie seriously and generalize it for whole system. In europe , I found some Indian parents saying that 'It is true scene of education system in India' ( I guess they are less knowledgable about indian system's power ). So for them message is "the education system sucks", "we learn nothing at our Engineering colleges and management institutes" and "teachers are unable to teach and only want to ruin students lives." ( I guess people will say 'dil pe mat le yaar' but.....)

3. In any system not all are Ranchoos and real ranchoos will never follow the trend they always defne the Trends. So movie is just an example.

But Aamit is the Best !!!
