At the start of the film, after delivering a baby doctor slaps his butts to make him cry.
A kiss happened at last
Two urinating scenes: 1) A guy warns Rancho “If you won’t came out then I’ll piss on the door.” After the count of 10 Rancho shows the spoon to the guy he tries to urinate on the spoon but gets an electric shock on his penis. 2) Chatur tries to urinate on the wall two kids puts a gadget out and the same thing happens.
No sex or nudity, but note the following:
There is a scene of ragging (hazing) where male students are pulling down their pants to have buttocks stamped. However, no nudity is seen, and it is comic in tone.
There is a reference to someone being called gay, and a bit of gay humor (comic in tone, unoffensive).
A student slides magazines under the other students’ doors to keep them from studying. Only the covers are shown, with women in skimpy clothing. One student is shown stroking his bare chest as he looks at a magazine.

At the end of the film Pia and Rancho kiss each other. The scene is intended to be a part of happy ending.
A student gives a speech with words like rape, bosom, etc. However, the speech is unintentional as it was modified unknown to the student, who doesn’t know Hindi so well. Students, professors and the chief guest are seen bursting with laughter hearing the speech where the word balatkar (rape) figures 21 times and the word stan (breast) four times.
The movie has a child birth scene where the delivery has complications, and the method of sucking the baby out using a vacuum pump is shown diagrammatically.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


One of my favorite stand up crosstalk performers is Russell Peters. He is the second generation of Indian immigrants from Canada. He specializes in racial jokes and is good at imitating the accents of various ethnic groups. Whether Chinese, Indian or Italian, he can find prominent features to imitate and boast, leaving a long aftertaste while making the audience laugh. While admiring his meticulous observation, While touching the chronic diseases of all races. Russell Peters once made an exaggerated summary of Indian films. Several main points really fit in with the traditional Indian song and dance films in my impression. What poor boy falls in love with a rich girl, breaks through the caste barrier and elopes. The funniest point is that he said that Indian films must have songs and dances, and no matter what the plot, they will suddenly reach a wilderness where birds do not lay eggs. There is a lonely tree in the middle. The heroine hides behind the tree. With the beat of music, she suddenly puts her head out from the left side of the tree, sings, retracts, probes from the right, repeats it several times, and makes a lotus finger under her chin, Looking left and right, she was fascinated by the hero who followed her.

Therefore, I also came to watch the Indian film three fools with such expectation. The story of five point someone, which is largely adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s debut novel, is really hilarious, and the “three fools” in the name are true – in the “Royal Academy of Engineering”, which has 42 exams per semester, published scores, fierce competition and even high suicide rate, There was a problem that Zhou Xingchi didn’t play cards according to the card theory. The student Rancho contradicted the teacher, questioned the tradition and didn’t take the results seriously. Of course, the old-fashioned principal “virus” would scold Rancho and two roommates who followed him. Farhran and Raju were big fools.

This maverick Rancho has a saying called “AAL izz well”. An appropriate song and dance in the video fully explains the key of this optimist mentality – if it can’t solve the problem, it can at least calm down, defeat fear and increase the courage to face the problem. I admire the director Rajkumar Hirani’s scheduling before and after this song and dance. Each surreal dance is temporarily suspended, and a backward scene is cut back to the story process to easily promote the plot development; After the whole carnival, there was a sudden huge contrast, which made the audience’s mood fall from the relaxed and comfortable cloud to the trough of depression and regret, which not only increased the ups and downs of the plot itself, but also added contrast and depth to the originally light “everything is fine”. Bollywood’s narrative skills are true.

Compared with the usual Hollywood comedies, “three fools” is almost twice as long. Small burdens and jokes emerge one after another. All kinds of small pieces are trivial, but they do not test the audience’s patience. I think this is inseparable from the echo of the plot arrangement and the tone of “serious ridicule” maintained by the video as a whole. The most obvious example is that when introducing ladu’s family environment, the voice over mockingly said “it’s like a replica of the black-and-white film of the 1950s, a narrow and dark room, a paralyzed father, a coughing mother and an unmarried sister”, while automatically reducing the saturation of the picture, deliberately making it a rough grain texture of the old black-and-white film. In the future, as soon as it reaches ladu’s house, the film will automatically turn color to black and white. Whether it is “everything is fine” or “virus power converter”, as long as the front is paved, the rear bridge section is bound to be used, including the “motorcycle bride” imagined by Lanqiao, which is almost exquisite.

But I think the most commendable thing about the video is its generous self mockery spirit. Without those ridicule, singing and dancing, the rest is dry and inspirational. Self mockery also makes the video out of the tone of realism and will not become an empty clamor of righteous words. Otherwise, this pure idealistic empty talk is really difficult to justify itself. Everyone knows that Rancho is absolutely right, but everyone also knows that his set will hit a wall everywhere in real life. Why do ideals always smash when facing reality? This is not simply classified as lack of passion or full of fear can explain everything. More often, singing “everything is fine” is just a self paralysis of Ah Q’s spirit. The expectations of elders, the pressure of peers, the necessity of survival, the scarcity of opportunities, and the unavailability of talent have proved to idealism again and again the tragic fate of Mavericks; The model student “silencer” who memorizes by rote is a successful model in the public sense. This “model” may have no personality charm and lack of innovative spirit. At best, it can only be a working emperor; However, in a third world country where the polarization between the rich and the poor is severe and most people are still struggling for food and clothing, how naive it is to talk about the realization of the ideal without first breeding a soil suitable for the growth of the ideal. It is simply a blood road of success or benevolence! To transcend the obstacles of survival and pursue ideals without looking back, it is certainly lamentable, but the gray area that must be crossed is much more cruel than the laughter of the film for ten years, not necessarily white bones, but at least blood and tears. The romantic Hollywood video “the pursuit of happiness” also shows that the protagonist is homeless with his young children. After sleeping in the toilet and eating relief, he can seize the opportunity and finally rush to success; Three fools simply ignores the hardships of a lone Walker and focuses entirely on the theory of idealism. It will not work without ridicule and self mockery.

Although the film is an idealistic dream after all, it still touches on many social problems worthy of reflection, including India’s high suicide rate, brain drain, school rote education methods, the single social division of labor and the lack of employment options. These social problems faced by India intersect with China, which is why I, a Chinese audience who has also deeply experienced the pressure of “thousands of troops crossing the single wooden bridge”, will resonate. Near the end of the video, there was another surprise to me: the headmaster “virus” who has always hated Rancho earnestly advised him “you can’t always be right” in the rainstorm and ponding. Although video can’t really go in the direction of realism, at least it’s hard to be sincere and honest.

The maverick Rancho is a virtual character who can only live in the film, but the idealistic courage and persistence he represents are still awesome. He is the “Pilgrim’s soul” that Yeats wholeheartedly loves in when you are old. I would like to see him become famous and family, and finally hold the beauty back, even if all this can only be a dream.
