3 Idiots

Dir.:ected by Rajkumar Hirani | Rated: U/A (CBFC) | 2h 50min | 25 Dec 2009


The Imperial College of Engineering is one of the most prestigious institutes of the country for students of engineering. However, two misfits, Farhan Qureshi and Raju Rastogi find themselves miserable over there, and with the principal Dr Viru Sahastrabuddhi, whom they have not so fondly named Virus, college becomes living hell for these two students. While Farhan's real passion is to become a wildlife photographer, Raju comes from a lower class family and wishes to get a high paying job that will alleviate his family's poverty. Enter Rancho, a talented and intelligent student, who seems to have a natural inclination for the subject. The three become fast friends. However, Rancho’s innovative way of thinking and problem solving are a source of ire for Viru, who prefers to stick to convention and tradition. And he certainly doesn’t get in the principal’s good books when he falls in love with his beautiful daughter, Pia, an aspiring doctor.
