3 Idiots diverges from Five Point Someone
Rajkumar Hirani’s forthcoming film, 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Sharman Joshi and Madhavan, is said to have taken only the characters and the basic plot of Chetan Bhagat’s best selling novel, Five Point Someone.
Aamir plays the character of Ryan in the film. The character of Ryan is that of handsome, adventurous and one who always says that he loves his friends more than his parents. He doesn’t want to mug up things and he gets low grades in the exams. He wants to do things his own way.
The film begins just like the novel but takes a completely different turn as it proceeds, as Hirani has worked on the screenplay and given his own additions making it quite unlike the novel in totality.
