Not so Idiotic After All ...

That's how I would rate 3 Idiots.

I am loath to apply different yardsticks to judge Bollywood and Hollywood movies.

So, when I saw 3 Idiots, I immediately sought to measure it against the best of Hollywood that I had experienced.

And I thought I could immediately name 10 Hollywood movies that are 10 times better and that I have seen multiple times and would continue to watch in the future ...

I thought like every Bollywood movie, this movie was too long as well ... the jokes seems forced ... and not so funny.

Let me mention a few random Hollywood movies that are my favorites ...

  1. Crimson Tide
  2. Clear and Present Danger
  3. Armageddon
  4. Forrest Gump
  5. A Few Good Men
  6. The Pursuit of Happyness
  7. Enemy of the State
  8. Terminator 2/Men in Black/Mission Impossible I/II/III
  9. As Good As It Gets
  10. Something's Gotta Give

Well, it seems the Government of India is up to its usual censoring ways ... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126327347865425871.html?mod=WSJ_hp_us_mostpop_read It's not as bad as what the Chinese are doing in battling Google. The Internet is awash in pornography and the feeble attempts of the Govt. of India won't be able to stem the tide. The Govt. should merely restrict itself to ensuring that there's no child pornography or trafficking of humans. There are problems galore for the Govt. to worry about as it is ...
