This is a great choice of film for students because this is a good example in striving better in learning. The film is mainly about hope, family and pursuit of happiness.

“Life is a race: if you are not fast enough you will get trampled.”

Viru Sahastrabuddhe

This is the theme song of Viru Sahastrabuddhe the principal of engineering college. He remarks these particular words towards the new comer students. This is the conventional thinking of almost all people who thinks life is a kind of race. And in this competition every student has to run fast no matter whatever their passion was. The above extract shows that everyone has to

serious in the very beginning of life. But the movie indicates something else through a little bit comedy. Three Idiots is a popular film which is produced by Vidhu Vinad Chopra and Directed by Rajkumar Hirani. It released on the year 2009. Amir khan, Kareena Kapor,R. Modhvn, Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani and so on are the casting character. Through their dialogue and movement many lessons are exposed. The film begins with the entry of threesome in the city’s engineering college. Farhan Qureshi (R.Madhavan) and Raju Rastogi are students and roommates at the prestigious Imperial College of Engineering (ICE). 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 fears the consequences on his family of failing. Their third roommate and friend, Ranchoddas "Rancho" Chanchad (Aamir Khan) is a highly talented and eccentric inventor. The first message that the movie conveys to its audience is “All is well”. The approach or the philosophy to which the movie adheres to tries to oversimplify the meaning and purpose of life and suggests a pathetic and impractical path to face hardship and sufferings in life. Life is not a bed of roses or a simple puzzle that can be solved by applying a single formula. Like in the movie when the characters are stuck in any trouble they just say “All is well” and the trouble vanishes. The movie favors the concept that students should be allowed to choose their profession and whatever they want to become. Students should be allowed to follow their dreams and choose their own destiny. The movie challenges the narrow mindedness of teachers and parents in forcing the children to choose the profession which they consider suitable, keeping in view the prevailing perception in society regarding that profession. Moreover, the movie asks for building interest and deriving fun from anything that a person do. The key to success in any field is developing interest in that particular field and a man should enjoy his work. It is wiser to let the children take their own decisions about choosing career. The movie tells us that every student should focus on learning and get rid of the cram. The movie is a great sarcasm on rote learning. It is shown that grades don’t matter at all. The knowledge that one gains is all that matters. Just getting degree without learning anything is of no worth. Learning based on cramming system among students is discouraged. One can’t get any success in life by just memorizing the words without getting the concept of it. Learning without understanding can be very harmful. The most controversial part of the movie is the general message or the theme of the movie in which parents and teachers are continuously criticized and held responsible for failure of educational system and the increasing number of student suicide

cases. In this regard the suicide approach of the students is justified by arguing that such cases occur because of the pressure which the students undergo. Instead of guiding the youth how to handle pressure situation which the student undergo frequently during his academic life the movie portrays a heroic figure of the student who choose the third path of suicide just for an emotional appeal or to gain sympathies. Like in the movie when Raju is threatened by the professor to become a witness against Aamir khan or else he will expel him. Now this is a situation that is faced by each and every student in his academic life but the path that Raju chooses is completely non sense. I agree that this is the climax and the most emotional scene of the movie but what about the image that it left behind on the raw and immature minds of youth.
