“Iu0026#39;m from the Philippines. For years, I have always been curious about Indian cinema. Iu0026#39;ve seen clips of Indian films on cable TV and to be honest…I just donu0026#39;t get it. I donu0026#39;t get all the silly dancing and singing in almost all movies. I find it so corny and irrelevant to the story. But donu0026#39;t get me wrong, Philippine movies back in the 80u0026#39;s were also filled with corny singing and dancing. But we have gone past those and transitioned into movie-making based on good scripts…rather than cheesy story lines. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen a friend of mine recommended this movie, I havenu0026#39;t really heard of it. I thought it was a Hollywood release but it wasnu0026#39;t. It was a Bollywood movie. He said it was really funny, so out of curiosity, I got hold of a copy. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy first thought was that it was nothing but a silly story of 3 guys doing slapstick comedy that I have all seen before. When they started singing u0026quot;All iz well..u0026quot; I told myself… I knew it! Just what I thought.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut as the movie progressed…I was amazed at the intelligence embedded in this movie. I was so impressed with the smart dialogues delivered by Amir Khan. It was so mature and thought-provoking. The life crisis all of them were in… the pressures at school..the pressures from society and the pressures from family as well… they rang so true. I was even at one time crying my heart out. I canu0026#39;t believe it! All the preconceived notions about a Bollywood movie were obliterated. I was so moved by this picture and I have no regrets seeing it.”
