Praz Gold : Reflecting on 3 IDIOTS (Hindi, 2009)

Expectations were soaring for 3 IDIOTS. Aamir Khan after the monster GHAJINI, Rajkumar Hirani after the mammoth LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI and I’ll affirm it from the start that 3 IDIOTS goes beyond those expectations as quite possibly one of the best films of the decade.

  1. grea great film.

    QUESTION to Yakuza, Praz or Topaz.

    why da hell has Salman not started da promotion of VEER. i have a bad feeling dat its gonna end up like LD. therfore 3i and MNIK gonna be huge and VEER not. i hope i am seriously wrong coz i want all 3 to be big big hits especially VEER. can some1 plz get through to Salman or da team of VEER. me and every other Salman fan have been posting dis message on da VEER blog.

    sorry to put dis question here

    • VEER’s first promo has done enough, the song promos have been liked too. Give it 2 weeks before the movie I think the promo will amp up. Eitherway, most people have this marked as the first “must see” of 2010…the rest will be quality/WOM!

      • praz i agree first promo was excellent but followup has not been that good…3i is here to stay hence it will get lot of repeat audience for sure hence Salman needs to go out all gun blazing like wanted to promote it and get audience shell out money again…I hope he is waiting for 3i Euphoria to settle to start the promotion..lets hope every thing falls in place just in time…Cheers!!!!

  2. thankx guyz. u see wen i went to watch 3i here in Bradford England. dere waz no trailor no poster, nothing. even pyar impossible had dem 2 things. anywayz some1 pathetic idiot has posted a thread on bollywood hungama and given a review of VEER. he said its a bad film and dat it falls way below expectations. Yakuza did say to me dat its a fake review. but why r people doin dis. if u can also elaborate on dat azwell plz.

    again sorry dat i had to post it here coz it iz 3i and AK time.

  3. Decade for the Superstars, Superstars from 2000-09
    Let us sum up the perfromances of bollywood superstars this decade;

    which started with the emerging of a new superstar beating
    all the khans, Hrithik Roshan;
    and is ending on the mr consistent Aamir khan ending his second 100 crore grosser with 3 Idiots.

    Please note we wont be covering above average/below average as seperate but a joint category. After all that category saves the distributor’s ass; but doesnt add to the resume of a superstar, does it?
    AAMIR KHAN
    ________________

    The last two years belonged to this perfectionist actor at the box office. With three of his films having a shot at the academy awards and one of them coming as close as Indian films could ever reach; this star showed that you combine the Tom Hanks frequency and Harry Potter volume of releases; you make a mark.

    Currently the first and second highest grossers belong to him. Did I also mention a best director filmfare award?

    He came, he danced he did everything a bollywood lead actor can do; and e conquered. After a debut to mark his presense as a successor to a fading shah rukh khan; he had given us all the flops we needed. And then came the masterpiece Koi Mil Gaya; when the actor, 3 years a hit and few flops old showed a promise of bettering the very best. So far we can dare say he fits better than anyone in whatever he does.

    All we wish is his next release comes before we forget about it.

    After a surname change from the ever cliched Khildai; the Jean Claud Van Damme of bollywood had a new trick up his sleeve: comedy. The slow but steady progress of Akshay started from Hera Pheri and now he is the only star in bollywood who is expected to deliver a hit based on same formula of a mixture of action, comedy and Katrina. And trust me when I say so; no one else does it so effortlessly. Not carrying a Khan title or a producer in his family; he is a dark horse for the industry which stakes billions on him; and so far he matches if not surpasses SRK in tax returns.

    As we know he gets written off every other year. And sad enough while we can have a number of number ones ranging from Aamir(2009), Hrithik(2000,2006),Sunny Deol(2001), Akshay(2007) we dont have another name for no 2. After being finished once every two years;
    he finishes the decade with the most profitable movie ever made in Indian film History.

    By the way, the non actor can also deliver a Blockbuster on a movie based on women’s hockey. And the ever so frequently no 2 superstar in India is rated by Newsweek, Time Magazine as the biggest movie star worldwide. If you visit the Musee Grevin museum in France; the Indian standing next to Gandhi is him. Or you just go to Maratha Mandir theatre in Pune,India; you might be able to see his film Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge(yes that one that is going on since 1995)BLOCKBUSTERS(3): OM SHANTI OM, RAB NE BANA DI JODI, CHAK DE INDIASUPERHITS(2): KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM, VEER ZAARAHITS(6): KAL HO NAA HO, MAIN HOON NA, KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA, DON, MOHABBATEIN, DEVDASSEMI HITS(2): CHALTE CHALTE, JOSH

    Now if we add up the scores without

    *gross sums(that doesnt make sense as LAK scores more than Chak De India)

    *gross profits(we need to take in worldwide gross, and if we put overseas collections of SRK movies; that is foul play)

    >averages(if a guy makes 1 film in 2 years his opening gives him an average boost compared to another who does 3 films a year)

    but

    >simply add up the scores by giving more credits to Blockbusters (+4), then to superhits(+3), then to hits(+2),then to semi hits(+1), 0 to average levels as they simply dont win/lose; and -1 to flops; the scores are
    SHAH RUKH KHAN : 3*4 + 2*3 + 6*2 + 2*1 – 1*4 = 28HRITHIK ROSHAN: 4*4 + 1*3 + 1*2 + 1*1 -7*1 = 15AKSHAY KUMAR: 1*4 + 2*3 + 8*2 + 4*1 – 8*1 =22AAMIR KHAN: 2*4 + 2*3 + 2*2 + 1*1 -1*1 = 18…

  4. LAST night watched most awaited AVATAR. 3D experience was nothing new as its been seen before also. i do not know what they were talking about that camaroon used special camara’s and all when mostly Pandura is full of animation. well i’m not impressed. it fall’s low to titanic.
    on the other hand, after watching 3 idiots, all the other movies looks so small compared to the giant. i’m proud that indian cinema have an ace over world’s cinema and hopping and praying we will get to c more of 3 idiots type of movies.
    PS: Amir is only lucky to get to work in this movie. it’s the movie works it all not the star power. that he’s taking the credit. i hope the BD of 3 idiots release soon. cant wait

    • Well Aamir is a HUGE factor in ANY movie! So you can’t take that out of the consideration. Aamir is to 3I what Amitabh was to AAA in many ways, though Sharman and Maddy are equally as effective here at the best of times, Aamir is the backbone!

  5. Happy New Year to all.wish u all the best.

  6. I still think Lagaan was Aamir’s best and always will be.

    This movie should take all the best picture and director award, but if Aamir and Kareena win the award for Best Actor/Actress, then these award shows are fixed.

  7. can you please mention the update of 3 idiots

  8. hi guyz

    watched this movie on last week. i had really high expectations and……..it surpassed them all. this was such a brilliant film in all respects…until now my fave films of this year were Wake Up Sid, kaminey &…… APKGK & Luck By Chance, LD….however this is better than all of the above…the script is brilliant and fresh – the dialogues, screenplay, teamwork is brilliant. kudos to hirani for giving Sharman and Farhan meaty roles alongside Aamir because they were brilliant. Aamir was Aamir – the best around this decade however i though Boman Irani’s and ‘Chatur’s’ character was hilarious….a bit of a Charles Dickens character and hence why u will remember them for years and years. there’s everything in this movie….hilarious moments, shocking moments, twist and turns and emotion and never once does it drag. hats off to Hirani. special mention for the locations Shimla & Ladakh were really nice…..thank god they didnt succumb to shooting in Switzerland like Yash Raj Films do 🙂

    in a nutshell – brilliant movie, the best by miles imo and yes i’m going to watch it again on Wednesday 🙂

  9. what i find amazing abt Aamir and his movies. i have really really big expectations from Aamir and his movies and i always come out thinking ‘wow that was amazing’ no other actor gives me 100% satisfaction than Aamir. SRK is a gr8 actor but lacks the script sense of Aamir. Hrithik is getting better steadily in terms of choosing a good script and making it perfect like Aamir does. i find Ranbir is very much like Aamir in that he chooses a gr8 script and the whole package is good. He’s young and imo will become much better. Aamir has now got 100% trust of the audience because he provides gr8 entertainment with a gr8 movie expereience overall.
