3 Idiots (2009)

Tentative fears of having purchased a Dumb and Dumber style comedy were thankfully completely unfounded and besides one instance of 'boy band music video' I didn't cringe or consider the stop button even once. Phew!
It begins with two of the titular idiots (Sharman Joshi and Madhavan) searching for the third (Aamir Khan); it then jumps back to show their time together as roommates in a College for Engineering undergraduates.
While all the actors fit their roles well, Aamir is perfect for his - he's a free spirit, a cool breeze that invigorates a runner in the race of life on a hot day.
The script also has a few prudent and pragmatic things to say about the state of the education system as a whole, not just as it stands in India.
