The essence of Raj Kumar Hirani’s Bollywood flick “3 Idiots” is as it even Now. It was the movie released in 2009 where the perfectionist Aamir Khan played the leading role of “Rancho” (Rannchhod Das Shyamal Das Chanchad). The other leading casts were R Madhwan as Farhaan and Sharman Joshi as Raju and the Bubbly character of the leading lady was played by Kareena Kapoor.
There is an upcoming remake of the Movie to be released in June this year. This is a Mexican remake with the Spanish Language. Too much of our surprise the name of the movie has been kept same that is “3 Idiotas”. Actors Alfonso Donsal, German Valdez and Christian Vazquez are reliving the roles as Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi, and R. Madhavan respectively. Actress Martha Higareda will be the leading lady of the movies portraying the role that Kareena played in 3 Idiots.
The Spanish version of the movie has Filepe and Beto who are in search of their friend Pancho. They are eagerly hunting him out after five long years post graduating from engineering college. The script seems quite familiar in the platform of the Indian one.
Watch out the trailer here. This is sure with a wholesome madness attached to it. If you watch the movies all the memories will come back in your mind.
Directed by Carlos Bolado, “3 Idiotas” is an official remake where our Bollywood Film Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra is being one of the Executive Producers. The movies don’t only share the similarity of the character and the storyline rather you could also find the similarity in the Spanish version of the Indian song “ All Izz Well……..”. Great going. The movie will hit the US theater in the month of June 2017.
We have many examples of Bollywood taking inspiration from Hollywood movies. Such as the Partner, Vicky Donor, A Wednesday, Jab we met and so on. The list could have many successful or unsuccessful remakes of Hollywood movies. However, this would be probably the first time that an inspiration has come from India to the Western Films.
Undoubtedly we have loved all the engineering chaps from the movie and their struggle. Also, the fun they shared throughout their study, their apprehensions, their tussles with the professor and ultimately fight for their respective career. Rancho’s take on the life and his insight for one’s future is commendable. Raju Hirani’s direction and selection of character turn out to be perfectly tuned in.
