3 Idiots (2009) | Malay Subtile
On board a departing Air India flight, Farhan Qureshi (R. Madhavan) suddenly receives a call from Chatur Ramalingam (Omi Vaidya) claiming that he has found Rancho. He then causes an emergency landing by feigning a heart attack. Farhan fetches Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) and they meet Chatur at a water tank in their old college campus; Chatur revealing that Rancho is in Shimla.
As they drive their way to Shimla, a flashback shows Farhan and Raju beginning their college year in the prestigious Imperial College of Engineering (ICE) in Delhi. They are joined by Ranchoddas Chanchad (Aamir Khan), known as “Rancho” . While Farhan takes engineering over photography to please his father, Raju takes the course to lift his family from poverty. Rancho, on the other hand, believes in hands on learning and tends to give unorthodox answers in class, coming into conflict with professors, in particular with the institution’s director, Dr. Viru Sahastrabuddhe (Boman Irani), whom the ICE community nicknames as “Virus”, and whose traditional and strict philosophies on education contrast sharply with Rancho’s carefree love of learning. Meanwhile, Chatur, nicknamed “Silencer”, is an arrogant Ugandan-born Tamil student with little knowledge of Hindi, who is obsessed with topping the exams.
Cast: Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani, Omi Vaidya.
