Just watched 3 Idiot yesterday, truly refreshing movie with great messages. The movie reminded me of good old Engineering college days and the fun I had there with the friends. Yes it has larger than life character of Aamir Khan which looks a bit stretched at times but we need to discount it for the sake of bollywood.
Chetan Bhagat has all the rights to feel cheated as the movie actually has twisted all his scenes and non of it truly resembles 5 point someone but I still think that the real Five point someone story would have been tough to sell in the market. Five Point someone was a great story full of realistic scenes but something which is too specific to the Engineering colleges..
Interestingly movie also touches upon the real problems with Indian education system, fear of failure and pressure on children to perform and excel in regular educational streams . The freedom to choose your own profession is a bit subdued in Indian context and the problem is very clearly depicted in the story. The message is loud and clear to the parents which try to force there children into certain profession just for the sake of there own prestige and societal pressures.
Two of the personal learning from the movie

Don't delay your dream for Long, do what you really want to do in life.
Some of the Dialogues I loved in the movie ..
Agar dost fail ho jaye toh dukh hota hai aur woh agar woh first aaye toh aur bhi dukh hota hai
Hum science ki taraf se hain
Millimeter Virus Ko bahar nikal
Saari umar hum Mar mar ke jee liye Ek pal to ab humein Jeene do Jeene do
Give me some sunshine
