3 Idiots

3 Idiots - Voted 8.9/10 at IMdb,

Sometimes things in life happen in a pattern. Sometimes you wonder, is it a sign? Its happened to us definitely, its whether we notice it or just ignore it. How many times in life have you been wondering about something or looking for a solution and then it just literally comes knocking to the door. How many times have you thought of a friend and 'bump' into them.

It's just happened to me twice in this short fortnight. First a friend from Matriculation UKM. I find out probably he's the only matrix batch that's practicing in Penang. So we buzz each other thru facebook thanks to another friend's re-intro. Then we find out we stay in the same 'Taman' or vicinity. And just in 24hours, I bump into him as the doctor locum in the clinic!

Well it's happened again; Steve Jobs' speech at Stanford which I blogged about in my previous entry. His first point "1. Do what you love to do. If you haven't found it yet, keep on looking. You will stumble upon it sooner or later.
Whether you grab it, take the risk of falling, is your own call."

And now watching 3 Idiots dejavu again. One of the many good messages from the movie based on students studying in a Top Notch Engineering School in India (somehow called Imperial College IC instead of IIT) where Amir Khan and his 2 other idiot friends embark on a journey whehre Amir Khan helps them realize "Let Your Passion Be you Profession". So after the movie I start wondering, is my profession my passion? In ways yes, I do enjoy going to work, MBWA, working with people , things, solving issues and challenges and growing.

Going back to the movie,first of all it was nice to see the cinema half full. It's hard to get hindi movies at Cinema's in Penang. So those whom really do like to see Hindi Movies, do go to the movies to increase the demand.

The movie: I'd rate better then average Hollywood movies. It had all the elements of a good movie (in my case) Good Humour, great punch lines (a 9.5 over 10 for this), some very teary moments (yes your eyes will go wet more then once probably), there's a nice love story that's not over-done, great moral and advice in it, and yes the trademark songs. Songs were quite catchy, and I only found on song out of place, the other songs seemed nicely into the movie.

A must watch. You'll walk away smilling, and thinking... Enjoy. Check out the showings at
