3 Idiots – When the best is not good

I recently watched the Hindi movie “3 Idiots” on television. Apart from the few serious moments (which I didn’t identify with), most of it is supposed to be comedy. Apparantly it is one of the best commercial movies in recent times. There was a time when comedies were actually funny – some of Amol Palekar’s movies come to mind. These days comedies mostly consist of vulgar references to private body parts and double meaning dialogue about sex. It would be interesting to understand how this transformation came about.
