3 Idiots

Amir did not have to do all those promo trips round the country. He should have had more confidence in the movie!

The movie gave good laughs and you could forgive the length (20 or 21 reels) because of that. And all the while doling out advice. Advice to parents, advice to students, advice  those about to be engaged.  And most importantly advice to the Teachers.

IIM Bangalore’s campus was well utilized and the locales in Ladakh were awsome.

And at the end of the movie, I had a little change of heart. May be I will be more more sensitive to my son’s wishes than I am now and hope to improve on this issue.

I have to thank the movie for an wholesome entertainment in conclusion.

P.S: Chetan Bhagat did not receive enough credits. ( Is someone telling me to ‘shut up’?)


I work for SmileTrain.

Unlike many charities that do many different things, The Smile Train is focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.
Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache.

This is our mission:

-To provide free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries.
-To provide free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals.
Until there are no more children who need help and we have completely
eradicated the problem of clefts.
