3 Idiots ($18) is a little like Bollywood's version of The Hangover, only without the drinking and Vegas-level debauchery. Two nerdy friends, Farhan and Raju, go on a coming-of-age road trip in search of their despondent, depressed friend Rancho, and, naturally, hijinks (with the occasional musical number) ensue. Despite dealing with traditional, somewhat overdone Indian themes like parental expectations and forbidden love, 3 Idiots manages to be a fabulous contemporary comedy. Our advice? Order in some curry and naan and pop this into your DVD player for an evening of masala-spiced fun.
