A few days ago, a film named “Wrestling Competition” was popular in China. But in here I do not want to talk about” Wrestling Competition”. What I want to say is the masterpiece of the male starring in the “Wrestling Competiton” Amir Han – “3 Idiots”. A film which is considered as one of the greatest movie in the world.
“3 Idiots” was adapted from “Five Point Someone” – a popular novel in India. It talks a story about 3 students named Farhan, Rancho and Raju in Royal College of Engineering. Farhan and Raju are students and roommates at the prestigious Imperial College of Engineering Farhan has a secret passion to be a photographer, but studies engineering in fear of his father, whereas Raju chooses engineering to support his family, but has poor grades because he lacks self-confidence. Their third roommate and friend, Rancho is a highly talented and eccentric inventor. After giving unorthodox answers in class, Rancho comes into conflict with the college's director, Viru, known as "Virus", whose traditional and strict philosophies on education contrast sharply with Rancho's carefree love of learning.
Rancho quickly falls in love with Pia, Virus' younger daughter, a medical student, and always scores the highest marks out of his class, much to the dismay of Virus. He also attracts the attention of a rival, Chatur "Silencer" Ramalingam, an arrogant Ugandan-born Tamil student. One night, the three friends drunkenly break into the Viru household to allow Rancho to profess his love to Pia. After discovering their antics, Virus threatens to expel Raju unless he writes a letter implicating Rancho in the break-in. Unwilling to betray Rancho or disappoint his family, Raju unsuccessfully attempts suicide by jumping. With intensive care and support from his friends, Raju recovers in time to successfully interview for a corporate job. Meanwhile, Rancho and Pia post Farhan's letter to his favorite photographer, who offers him a position as assistant. Farhan still fears his father's rejection, but after urging from Rancho, he communicates his dream to his father, who gives his reluctant acceptance.
Frustrated by Rancho's influence on Raju and Farhan, Virus makes the final exams so difficult that none of them can pass. Pia gives Virus' spare office keys to Rancho to enable him to get the exam papers, but Virus discovers the trio and expels them. However, when Virus' pregnant elder daughter Mona goes into labour during a heavy storm that cuts off all power and traffic, Rancho uses his engineering knowledge to deliver the baby in the college common room with Pia's guidance. A grateful Virus finally acknowledges Rancho as an extraordinary student, allowing the three to graduate. Unexpectedly, Rancho disappears shortly after the ceremony.
Ten years later, Farhan is a successful wildlife photographer, Raju is settled in a comfortable lifestyle with a corporate job and wife, and Chatur is vice president of a corporation in the United States. None of them have heard from Rancho since graduation. Farhan is boarding a flight, when he suddenly receives a call from Chatur claiming that he has found Rancho. In order to exit the plane, Farhan causes an emergency landing by faking a heart attack. On the way to the campus, he picks up Raju and meets Chatur at the ICE campus only to find that Rancho is not there. Chatur shows off pictures from his life in America, and reveals that Rancho is in Shimla.
Arriving at Shimla, they meet a man who turns out to be the real Rancho
. From him, they learn that the Rancho they knew was actually "Chhote", an orphaned servant to the Chanchad family. Ranchodas' father arranged for Chhote to attend ICE in his son's name, so that his son could take credit for the degree. Ranchodas provides Chhote's address in Ladakh, where he is a school teacher. On the way, in Manali, they also rescue Pia from her arranged wedding so that Pia can marry Rancho.
Upon arrival in Ladakh, the four find the village school, witnessing young students' inventions that resemble Rancho's own college projects. Raju, Farhan, and Pia then happily reunite with Rancho on a sandbar, where Rancho and Pia kiss. Assuming Rancho to be a mere school teacher, Chatur asks him to sign a statement that he is the less successful one. Without comment, Rancho does so, and surrenders the space pen that Virus had given him.
The story is like their name. As the students of the Royal Polytechnic, they have 42 exams in one semester, the suicide rate is high. But in this high competitive place, Rancho occurred. he destroyed the common sense of the university. He crushed the seniors and embarrassed the headmaster. He tells Farhran to do things their hearts love. He also tells Raju to put down the burden of the heart. Rancho dared to challenge the rules, dare to confront the teacher. When one student kill himself due to the headmaster’s word and pressure. He talked to the headmaster, this is not a suicide, but a murder. However, he does be a good man. He helped a passer to recognize her fiancé, he constantly inspires others, his mantra is “ Aal izz well”. This is exactly the case. In this film, his roommates live well from the beginning of the film we can see. What They are worried and their parents are worried and did not happen.
The film uses flashback and narrative techniques. In the beginning, the film told us that Farhran forced an airplane, Raju did not wear pants and ran out. All of these just has one reason- they heard Rancho come back. So we must have a great interest on “who is Rancho”. On the way finding Rancho, Farhran’s memorize lead us into the main plot.
Like all Indian’s film. Song and dance are two things that never miss. However, song and dance in this film doesn’t give me the feeling of abruptness. Everything is just right. Little jokes are one by one, all kinds of small pieces of unavoidably, but it does not test the patience of the audience. But I think the film is most worthy of praise or its hesitate to self-deprecating spirit. Not these ridicule and song and dance, the rest will only dry encouragement. Self-deprecating also makes the film from the realism of the tone, will not become righteous words of the hollow, otherwise, this pure idealist empty talk is really difficult to justify. Everyone knows that Rancho is right, but also know that his set in real life will be everywhere. The ideal face of reality why always hit crushed? This is not simply classified as a lack of passion or full of fear will be able to explain everything, more time, and then sing "everything is good" is nothing but the spirit of the self-paralysis of Ah Q. The expectations of the elders, peer pressure, the need for survival, the scarcity of opportunities, talent can not be made, again and again to the idealism to prove the tragic fate of maverick; and rote students "silencer" is The success of the general model of this "model" may be no charisma, lack of innovation, at best, only when a working emperor; but in a rich and poor differentiation, most people are still struggling for the third world countries , Do not give birth to the ideal growth of the soil on the empty talk about the ideal implementation is how naive ah, it is simply an unsuccessful into the blood of the road! It is necessary to cross the gray area comparable to the film with a decade of jokes more cruel, not necessarily bones and oozes, at least the blood and tears.......... Has been romantic of the Hollywood film "when the happiness to knock on the door" (the pursuit of happiness) have to show the protagonist with young children homeless, after the toilet, eat relief to seize the opportunity to finally seize the opportunity Success; "three fools" will be a solo struggle hard and simply ignored, the focus entirely on the idealist theory, no ridicule, do not engage in self-mockery certainly does not work.
Although the film is an idealistic dream, it still touches a lot of very thoughtful social problems, including India's high suicide rate, brain drain, school rote education methods and social division of the single and employment options Lack of. India has faced these social problems and the intersection of China, which is why I have also deeply experienced the "great force over the single-plank bridge," the pressure of the Chinese audience will be quite sympathetic. The film is near the end of a so that I was very surprised: has been hurried to Rancho president of the "virus" in the storm water in the earnest to persuade him "you can not always right." Although the film cannot really go to the direction of realism, but at least, this is sincere and sincere is quite rare.
The Rancho is a virtual person who can only live in a movie, but the courage and perseverance he represents is idealistic. First I think, there are not many people who dare to challenge the rules. In China we just know to follow the teacher. Second, in this film, Rancho’s purpose is good, but it affects a lot of people. The behavior of Rancho disturbs many people’s lives. Just as one people said: 3 Idiots just a dream about ideal.
