Huey McEvoy's rating of the film 3 Idiots

More than perhaps any other country's cinematic output, it's difficult to judge commercial Indian cinema by any usual standard. So long as it features charismatic stars, a solid story and some peppy songcraft, that's enough. 3 Idiots represents this type of filmmaking at its best - albeit with some clumsy 'serious' moments - and Aamir Khan is always watchable. Was I entertained? Yes I was.
