3 Idiots on Youtube: How to Watch it Online?

The release date of Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots is closing in. This Christmas, Hindi movie goers are going to have another reason to smile. Aamir Khan is known for doing cinemas with exceptional stories. For this reason, whenever Aamir Khan’s movies come out, people go to the theatres because they know that they are going to watch something new and enjoyable. Now, there is a great news for Aamir Khan fans, especially those, who would not be able to go to the theatres and enjoy his 3 Idiots. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who produced 3 Idiots, said that the entire movie will be released on You Tube but you would have to wait for twelve weeks to see it. This will be the first Hindi movie, to do so. Vidhu Vinod Chopra said:

"I'm providing this facility for those who can't see it on big screen and watch pirated movies. I just want them to discourage pirated prints. They just need to wait for 12 weeks and after that they can legally download the movie and watch it,"

Mr. Chopra also said that if there is any facility available to show the movie on mobile phones then it would become also available on the phones but it will be done at an appropriate time. After all, the producer does not want to harm its theatrical business.

This is quite interesting and a very novel idea to fight against movie piracy. I think Bollywood should start giving Internet the attention it deserves. In the U.S., there are companies like Netflix that rents movies to people via online. Bollywood movie makers can also make such arrangements because more and more Indian people, especially the Indian youths are browsing the net for knowledge and fun.

3 Idiots is directed by Rajkumar Hirani who also made the superhit Munna Bhai movies. A romantic comedy, 3 Idiots tells the story of Rancho (Aamir Khan), Pia

(Kareena Kapoor), Farhan (R Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi). Raju, Farhan and Rancho were close friends during their days in their college. The movie starts when Raju and Farhan embark on a journey in search for Rancho, a free thinker and the most talented among them. During their journey, they suddenly remember a “long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash and a funeral that goes out of control.” As the journey goes on, the story begins to unfold at the backdrop. With his unique ways of thinking Rancho changed the lives of his classmates but his ideals always caused a big clash with their oppressive mentor, Viru Sahastrabudhhe (Boman Irani). Then there was the love story of Rancho and Pia. Suddenly, one day, Rancho vanished. Nobody knows where he went. 3 Idiots is a movie of friendship and self actualization and also a great laugh riot.
