Hankering for a taste of Bollywood. See 3-Idiots on the big screen in the DC area

<b>3</b> <b>Idiots</b>

‎The movie is a comedy‎ and even though I have not seen it yet, the movie is highly recommended by many of my friends both here in the US and in India. The theme is very commonplace and makes comedy of the Indian parental mindset where every Indian parent wants thier kids to be either a Doctor or a engineer.The movie is 2 hours and 15 minutes long. Review web site  Dear Cinema says that the movie 3 Idiots will be released officially on You Tube

According to the Indian Newspaper BusinessLine the movie has a deal to be released on YouTube after 3 months which I think is a huge deal and marketing genius.

“The movie will be released on YouTube after eight to ten weeks,” Mr Vidhu Vinod Chopra, producer of the movie told Business Line at the sidelines of the 3 Idiots press conference on Tuesday. The deal with YouTube will allow viewers to download the entire movie from the Web at a fixed price. “We haven't decided on the pricing points yet, but we hope this will stop illegal download and video sharing,” Mr Chopra According to a recent report released by Motion Picture Association of America, India ranks eight among countries with the highest incidence of online piracy.


I hope YouTube has a great time marketing this too and here is a review of the movie :
