Rancho and his two friends come together to form an impossible Trio and spend their leisure time with boisterous laughter and foolishness. As soon as it turns around Ranchos more modern perspective of learning, as evidenced by its regular lessons exclusion and expressions to Sahastrabuddhe that begins shortly thereafter to take three students to target, is still clear, Farhan and Raju, however, hold much back. This is due to their ärmlicheren conditions at home. They suggest the ICE as the only way and do not want rather step out of line.

" The Supergiga - box-office may not be a masterpiece. Lots based on the novel " Five Point Someone " by Chetan Bhagat created Rajkumar Hirani rather a heterogeneous, at times surprisingly bumpy narrated work, which, however, fully auftrumpft in a number of individual scenes. If one is in a such a scene there is, " 3 Idiots " is a delight. fact that at times one goes through hangers that the messages are not formulated properly, Boman plays a caricature, Aamir is too old and the songs by themselves have little sing-along character that ignores you be happy. Man enjoying the moment, the scene, the game, the fun. This is contagious. And millions of Indians thought the same. " (of molodezhnaja.ch )
