3 Idiots is a coming of age Indian comedy film released in 2009.  This movie is based on the novel Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat.  The film, which completed 10 years yesterday, started trending on Twitter under the hashtag #FilmOfTheCentury.  When the film was released, it was received with applause by audiences spanning across all sections of the society.  The film had everything for everyone. Aged individuals, parents, millennials—everyone could relate to the different characters and subplots in the movie.

Although 3 Idiots was released a decade ago, its popularity, it appears, did not diminish with time.  The film still resonates strongly with the viewers.

Plot

The story of 3 Idiots is based on three students, Rancho (Aamir Khan,) Raju (Sharman Joshi) and Farhan (Madhavan.)  The three of them become close friends while studying at the renowned Imperial College of Engineering.  The plot revolves around their undergraduate years, how they eventually discover their passions and follow them and become successful in their chosen careers.

Ten years down the line

3 Idiots has a good amount of humour which still makes the audience laugh.  Students can find a sense of connection with the various characters depicted in the film.  The film also deftly handles how a student’s family background and their families’ views can affect their thought process, which is a reflection of the current day society.  3 Idiots also tackles deep rooted problems of the Indian education system such as how education is imparted versus how it should be imparted.  The movie also has an endearing love story for all the romantics out there.

3 Idiots went on to break many records and gained massive popularity amongst audience from countries outside India as well.  China and Japan, especially, widely accepted the film and conferred awards on it. Rancho’s mantra “All is well” is fondly remembered even today.

Nishabdham Trailer - Madhavan Starrer Promises An Intense Thriller

Nishabdham is an upcoming multilingual movie which stars Anushka Shetty and Madhavan in the lead roles. Directed by Hemant Madhukar, this film is jointly produced by T.G. Vishwa Prasad, Vivek Kuchibhotla and Kona Venkat. 

The trailer begins with an intense and ominous shot in the basement of a house in the U.S., showing a dead body and a terrified Sakshi (Anushka Shetty) turning towards the camera. The next shot shows a news anchor outside the house which is being referred to as a haunted house.  A visibly injured Sakshi is seen in a hospital bed trying to convince Maha (Anjali,) a cop that it was a ghost who committed the murder.  Maha believes it is Sakshi’s best friend Sonali (Shalini Pandey) who committed the crimes but it turns out she is already deceased and cremated.  The plot of the movie can be deduced from the rest of the trailer. Nishadham will be a movie where Sakshi and Maha race against time to connect the dots and uncover the killer.

Watch the trailer here:

 

Madhavan will be seen in an upcoming bilingual movie Rocketry: The Nambi Effect in which he will star alongside Simran Bagga.  The movie is based on the life of Nambi Narayan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation who was accused of espionage.

Nishabdham stars Anushka as a mute artist and Madhavan as a musician in the lead roles while Hollywood’s Michael Madsen, Anjali, Subbaraju, Shalini Pandey and Srinivas Avasarala will appear in supporting roles.  Nishabdham is slated for a release worldwide, on April 2nd, 2020.
