The highest-grossing Bollywood film in India, 3 IDIOTS is the story of two friends, Farhan Qureshi and Raju Rastogi, who embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control. As they make their way through the perilous landscape, another journey begins: their inner journey through memory lane and the story of their friend — the irrepressible free-thinker Rancho, who influenced and inspired them to think creatively and independently, even as the conformist world called them three idiots. Rancho, in his own unique way, touched and changed their lives before the day he finally vanished…
Who was he? Where did he come from? Why did he leave? Where is the original idiot now? Finally, in misty mountains of unparalleled beauty, the friends find the key to the secret.
