3 Idiots.. based on five point someone - A preview

Rajkumar Hirani's 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Sharman Joshi,
Madhavan and Boman Irani has gone on the floors. The film is loosely based on Chetan
Bhagat's novel Five Point Someone. The first teaser poster of the film is out and has a
huge blackboard with mathematical formulae scribbled on it.

The cast

The cast of 3 idiots include:


The first characters of the novel are Hari – who is shy and wants to be handsome like
Ryan. Hari is average and is bad at vivas.. He falls in love with his professor’s daughter
and whenever Hari tries to impress his professor, he brings down his image.


The second student is Ryan, he is handsome and adventurous and he always says that
he loves his friends more than his parents and he don’t want to mug up things and he
gets low grades, in the college exams .He wants to do things in his own way and he tries
to do that and he too gets into the five pointers.


The third is Alok-A simple boy who wants to get good grades and earn money to overcome poverty of his family.



Work in progress

Sources reveal that Hirani doesn't want to give away the look of his protagonists soon,
which is why the teaser doesn't have any of the actors in it. However, work on the film
is underway and Hirani plans to wrap 3 Idiots by December.

Begins September

The source adds, "The shoot of the film with the supporting characters has already begun,
Hirani and his team are in Simla and the film is scheduled to be shot in Ladakh, Delhi ,
and Mumbai as well. Aamir and rest of the cast will begin shooting in early September."

Shantanu Moitra has given the music for 3 Idiots while the lyrics are by Swanand Kirkire.

Class is on

Apparently, author Chetan Bhagat was the first to see the poster and quite liked the final
result. "Since the setting is that of an engineering college campus the poster had to have elements of a classroom."

Make A Promise!

"I had the blues because I had no shoes,

Until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet..."

-- Denis Waitley

I was a kid then, when while writing an essay I came across this saying in my quotation book. The rhyming words made me hurriedly jot it down in my treasured diary where I (even now) write down every tit bit that appeals my mind. I did not understand the meaning then, all I could see was street rhyming with feet.

And now that I’ve understood it tears my heart apart whenever I relate it with my real life. I always say that I have a lot of dreams & I want to fulfill them all in this lifetime of mine. But when I see a human soul as similar in existence as my own but not born with the blessing that at the end of the day he has a home to return to, enough resources (after whole day of work) to settle the hunger for food, a bed to fall asleep & forget the worries of the day, I am left pondering-

“God this very human existence is your design but why did you kept so disparities in it?”

At one side there is a human who rolls in luxury, eats five times a day (read five healthy meals which their dietitian suggested), have to think hard to decide which dress to wear for the day & drives flashy cars. At the extreme is a human soul who leaves for work imparting a hope to his family, that today he will surely get food for everyone.

I don’t know that if this is to be accepted as harsh truth or God’s design? But for my own self I’ve reached a conclusion. I have not stopped dreaming big but instead I have extended my dreams & made a place for a new promise.

A promise which I have done to myself, a promise to lend a helping hand to the needy, promise that for my every precious gain I will bring a smile to as many faces as I can.

***This article comes straight from my heart so dear readers if you are able to identify the humble feeling with which I have written this then do try to make a difference to this world. On your next birthday, before you celebrate it with your loved ones in the most lavish of way, if you could sponsor just one meal of as many needy people as your age it will multiply your happiness.***
