    3 Idiots

    ★★★★½

    3 IDIOTS (2009) 170m. India English subtitles
    Directed by Rajkumar Hirani

    Cast: Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Mona Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Sharman Joshi, Omi Vadaya, Jaaved Jaaferi, Rahul Kumar, Amardeeo Jha ao.

    This was the last watched film during 2023 for me. Luckily it turned to be excellent. Very funny and surprising!

    It reminded me of my glorious watch of LAGAAN: ONCE UPON A TIME IN INDIA (2001) 214m. by Ashutosh Gowariker, where Aamir Khan also starred.

    Both films are very engaging and rewarding.

    Perhaps!

    Colour code: definitely blue.

    I have loved every encounter with the cinema of Eric Rohmer this far.

    KEEP WATCHING THE SKIES!

    Rewatch 2016-07-21.

    The last time I watched this, several years ago, I thought it was a nice OLD horror story; entertaining but obviously old-looking.

    This time I was really surprised how well-paced, interesting and fast-flowing it felt. It works very well in 2016 as well as it must have done in 1951.
    WHAT A JOYFUL WATCH it is even now!

    Credited directors are Christian Nyby and Howard Hawks.
    Kenneth Tobey and Margaret Sheridan have top billing.…
