This is one movie that i MUST introduce you people to watch!
this is the Second Indian movie i watched all my life and fell in love with.
the First was Slumdog Millionaire.
This movie is about two friends (Farhan and Raju) embarking on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encountered a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control. As they made 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 in his unique way, touched and changed their lives. It's a story of their hostel days that swings between Rancho's romance with the spirited Pia, and his clash with an oppressive mentor, Viru Sahastraduhhe.
And one day, Rancho vanishes...
Who was he? Where did he come from? Why did he leave?

This movie was released on the 25th Dec 2009.
Well, as outdated as I am, I only watched it recently, 3rd Feb 2011.
I was first told about this movie in January this year,
to be honest,
once I heard that it was an Indian movie,
I was kinda skeptical and
Songs, Trees, and Mountains start floating in my thoughts.
but, i'm SO GLAD I actually watched it!
Although, yes, it may be filled with songs here and there,
the movie is 2 hours and 45 mins long.
But i've gotta tell you that this movie is just so meaningful!
and don't worry, it'll not be as boring as LOTR :P
coz as meaningful as it is, it's SUPER HILARIOUS!
but before you can get the jokes, you need a subtitle you understand!
coz most of the time, they'll be speaking in Hindi.
This movie speaks a lot about college/Uni life,
How understanding is important, applying the knowledge you've learn,
and not just dead memorizing!
also teaches you that
you should always strive for Excellence and Success will follow you.
Watch! you won't regret!
College/Uni Students would enjoy this show doubly! :)
Everyone that i've asked to watch this told me that they would get more friends to watch!
to convince you further that you should watch this movie,
the movie has won 6 Filmfare Awards and 16 IIFA Awards!
