Synopsis

The movie depicts the story of Farhan, Raju and Rancho whom are
mechanical engineering students at the Imperial College of Engineering, one of the
prestigious colleges in India. Other than rancho ,none of the others chose their
career options as an engineer for the joy of being a professional engineer .Farhan
dreams to attain his goal of being a wildlife photographer, but is pursuing an
engineering degree to fulfil his father's wish, whereas Raju needs to improve his
family's financial crisis and other family obligations that he has to take over from
his ill & bed rested father, and Rancho studies for the pleasure of building
machines. Rancho attains the attention of college's dean, Professor Viru
Sahastrabuddhe a.k.a. 'Virus' (Boman Irani), by giving creative and unorthodox
answers which contradicts the fabric of Virus’s strict ideology, and later blames
the rote-learning mentality of the institution for the suicide attempt of fellow
student Joy Lobo who eventually killed himself with his attempt. The three friends
break into Virus' house, so Rancho can propose to Pia, and then they(drunk)
unethically urinate inside the compound. The very next day, Virus threatens to
expel Raju, who, unable to choose between betraying his friend and disappointing
his family, eventually attempts suicide himself. Virus vows to make the course's
final exam as hard as possible so that Raju is unable to graduate. Pia tried to help
the three by telling Rancho about her father’s cruel plan for the exam, and he and
Farhan manage to steal the exam papers for Raju who end up refusing to cheat.
Virus sentences them to expulsion; but they earn a reprieve when Viru's pregnant
elder daughter Mona (Mona Singh) goes into labour at the same time. A heavy
storm cuts electricity, and Pia instructs Rancho to deliver the baby in the college
common room via Voice over IP, after Rancho restores power using car batteries
and a power inverter invented by Rancho. After the baby is apparently stillborn,
Rancho resuscitates it; wherefore Virus allows them to take and pass their final
exams. Rancho comes first and is awarded Virus's prize pen, retained hitherto for
an especially-capable student. Rancho went missing after their graduation. Farhan
and Raju race to locate Rancho after several years, at his last known address - little
knowing the secret that was kept from them all this time.

Ethics from 3 Idiots

This movie shines many ethics that changes the common perspective of
people in educating themselves. As the movie is targeted towards engineering
students, it resonates with student’s life in ukm. First, the ‘happy mantra’ dialogue
that runs repeatedly in the movie is ‘All Is Well’. Introduced by Rancho Even
though it looks simply, it brings answer for most of the complex problem. In
desperate situations, we should learn to keep ourselves calm at the same time to
possess strong will to overcome any type of obstacles because by doing so, you
can actually look into the problem better and able to find solutions for the problem.
Besides that, studying hard just for the sake to obtain good marks in exams and
maintain pointer is not right according to Rancho’s perspective. This is because he
says learning something should be applied in our daily life not just to memorize it
and write down in exam. For example, one of the most influential people in the
world and the most decorated cricket player ever, Sachin Tendulkar is a school
dropout. Next, parents are happy if we are happy. Nothing gives them more
satisfaction than that. Forget about what neighbours/relatives/acquaintances will
think. According to the circle of life, there is a very small closed set of people that
matter to you in your life. Recognize them and make sure you don’t hurt them.
Rest will be knocking at the door of your circle, some enter and move out while
some never even enter. Very few stay there forever. Finally, finding the right
friend is one of the most crucial decision in our life. We will get to know who real
friends are when we face a huge crisis in our life. The person that accompany us
thorough out the problem is the real friend
