For anyone who's ever had a group of friends that you've been through thick and thin with, 3 Idiots really pulls at the heartstrings, when it comes to portraying a trio of buddies who will do anything for each other. Oh, and I laughed a lot.

Farhan dreams of being a wildlife photographer but is resistant in pursuing his dreams because of his strict father. Raju hopes of becoming the breadwinner but lack the resources. Rancho is the carefree but shy romantic who gives advice.
The dialogue was surprisingly witty. One of many great lines: Farhan – “Most of us went to college just for a degree. No …
