My first twitter post (moinak_1983; dated 7 Nov 09) was :
there is a great need to outperform one’s own self– Learning is the process, perfection is the by product.
This was quite sometime back– Aamir Khan proved my thoughts with his latest flick “3 idiots”. Rajkumar Hirani is the next best example of perfectionism.
Perfection is the name of the game– that is what is movie-making is about. Inspired from the book “Five Point Someone” by Chetan Bhagat— in my personal opinion, the movie is far better than the book. The book was “good”– wasn’t great so to say– but the movie has a state-of-the-art perfection.
I am not a fan of Ms. Kapoor—- was never– note yet still– but nonetheless, her acting skills had been blessed by Hirani, and the co-actors. Aamir Khan was great– but his greatness was brought to limelight not only by himself but by Madhavan and Shravan — Two superb actors. The cast complimented each other at every step.
It is just not that the movie was great. There was a simple message for the education system. No doubt that the education system is faulty– but if people of the stature of Aamir Khan takes it up to bring a change– possibly a change may happen even if it is India.
As a movie, my opinion is, it deserves a 6 out of 5.
Well everyone knows the fact that the movie rocked, and no doubt that it made more than 100 crores gross in 4 days– but this is my blog– and i felt like writing about it in here rather than behaving like a movie critic in some other movie-related site/blog.
