NARRATOR: [translated] Chatur was called "Silencer" ... To sharpen his memory, he popped pills from a local quack.
[he takes a bottle of pills and chugs them down]
NARRATOR: [translated] And then let off silent ... but lethal farts.
[Rancho, sitting at a nearby table, suddenly grabs his nose and runs out of the room]
CHATUR: I didn't do it ... Raju!
NARRATOR: [translated] He always blamed others for the output.
[cut to Chatur sneaking down the hallway and slipping dirty magazines under the other students' doors]
NARRATOR: [translated] "Silencer" crammed eighteen hours a day. On exam eve, he would distract others ...
[cut to various shots of other students reading the magazines in bed]
NARRATOR: [translated] His belief ... There are only two ways of getting on top. Elevate your own grades, or shrink your opponents' grades.
[cut to another shot of Chatur sneaking around the building, as Rancho watches from across the hall]
NARRATOR: [translated] Rancho decided to subdue "Silencer" and rescue Raju, with one master plan ...
[cut to Chatur in the school library, typing on a computer as the older male librarian (glasses, thinning hair) reads to him from a notebook]

[cut to a closeup of Chatur as he quickly gets out of his chair and pats the librarian on the shoulder]
CHATUR: [translated] Please collect the printout, I'll be right back!

MR. DUBEY: [translated] Oh, the things I have to do ...
[he heads for the printer and picks up the paper, as Rancho sneaks up behind him]
RANCHO: [translated] Mister Dubey, the dean was looking for you.
MR. DUBEY: [translated] Really?
RANCHO: [translated] Yes, just now.
[he quickly hands the paper to him]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] I'll see him right away ... Give this to Chatur.
[he rushes off, as Rancho takes the paper and tears it in half, then cut to an overhead shot of Chatur walking up to the front desk and picking up the phone]
CHATUR: Hello? Hello?
FARHAN: [from off camera] Hello, Mister Ramalingam?

MR. DUBEY: [translated] Yes sir?

MR. DUBEY: [translated] Dubey. Librarian ... I'm permanent staff, sir.
[he gives a fake smile]
VIRU: Congratulations ...
[cut back to Farhan talking into his cellphone]
FARHAN: [translated] Hold on a moment. The chief is on the other line.
CHATUR: Uh, excuse me, sir ... Sir?
[cut to Rancho printing out the "amended" speech, as Farhan runs up to him and gestures wildly at his cellphone ... so Rancho takes it and disguises his voice]
RANCHO: [translated] Yes ... So, where was I?
CHATUR: [translated] You said I may die ... outside the gate!
RANCHO: [translated] Right ... As you get out of the gate, you'll see a traffic signal.
[Chatur begins writing down on a notepad]
CHATUR: Traffic signal ... Okay, okay.
RANCHO: [translated] When it turns red, all the cars will stop.
CHATUR: [translated] Okay, okay ... Then?
RANCHO: [translated] Then cross the road with great caution ... Because son, in rush hour, if a car hits you, you're dead.
[Farhan tries to keep from laughing, as Chatur immediately gets annoyed]
CHATUR: What nonsense! I know that!
RANCHO: Oh, you know that?
[Farhan continues to try to stifle his laughter, as Rancho begins bobbing his head back and forth in a mocking fashion (even though they are above Chatur and he can't see them)]
RANCHO: [translated] Excellent ... Then you're safe, my boy!
[Chatur looks at the phone in confusion, then cut to the stairwell as he walks up and finds Rancho and Farhan casually sitting down waiting for him]
RANCHO: [translated] Hey "Silencer" ... from the librarian.
[he holds up the paper, and Chatur snatches it away]
CHATUR: Don't call me that, Chanchad!
[as Chatur storms off, the two run off laughing]
FARHAN: Chanchad!
[they quickly stop and get serious when they notice the librarian walking up to them with an angry look on his face]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] Hey, the dean said he didn't call for me.
RANCHO: [translated] Who said "called?" I just said he "remembered" you!
[they giggle and run off]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] Remembered?
[he looks confused, but that quickly switches to a look of anger as he yells after them]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] Rascals!

[cut back to Viru, as the audience applauds, while the librarian (sitting behind him) reaches over and taps him on the shoulder]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] Sir, the voice is his, but the words are mine.
[cut to Rancho and Farhan leaving their seats and making their way down to the front row, where Raju is sitting]
CHATUR: [from off camera] He's a great guy! Really, you are!
[cut to a closeup of Chatur, as he continues his speech]
CHATUR: [translated] For thirty two years, he has unceasingly screwed students ...
[the audience (including the Minister) laughs, then cut to Rancho grabbing Raju by the shoulder]
RANCHO: [translated] He means "served students!"
CHATUR: [translated] I'm sure his endeavors will continue! We're astounded at how one man, in one lifetime, can screw so many, so well!
[the audience (including Rancho and Raju) continues to laugh]
CHATUR: [translated] With rigorous training, he's built up his stamina!
[Viru tries to get up, but the Minister (still laughing) is grabbing his arm]
CHATUR: [translated] He's spent every waking moment just screwing! Let's replicate his methods!
[Viru again tries to stop things, but the Minister pulls him back into his chair (apparently eager to watch what happens next)]
CHATUR: [translated] Tomorrow, ICE students will go across the globe. Wherever we go, we promise to screw!
[the audience continues to laugh]
CHATUR: [translated] We'll hoist this screwer's flag all over the world!
[the audience applauds]
CHATUR: [translated] We'll show the world that our capacity to screw cannot be matched by any student body anywhere on the planet!
[the Minister continues laughing, as the librarian gets out of his seat and hustles off camera]
CHATUR: [translated] Mister Minister, good evening. You have given this institution what it sorely needs ...
[cut to Rancho whispering to Raju, as he rubs his fingers together]
RANCHO: [translated] Tits, tits ...
[cut to Chatur, as he smiles broadly and rubs his fingers together]
CHATUR: [translated] Tits!
[cut to the librarian (who's made his way backstage) slapping his forehead in frustration, then to the Minister (who's no longer laughing)]
VIRU: Uh ...
[cut to the librarian backstage, as he whispers at Chatur and gestures wildly to try and get his attention]
MR. DUBEY: [translated] It's "money", stupid! "Tits" means ...
[he cups his hands underneath his chest (as Chatur just looks at him blankly), then cut to the Minister turning towards Viru]
MINISTER: [translated] What nonsense! That's insulting ...
[cut back to Chatur (who apparently did not understand the librarian), as he continues rubbing his fingers together with a big smile on his face]
CHATUR: [translated] Everyone has tits, but it remains pocketed ...
[the librarian nearly faints]
CHATUR: [translated] No one offers it so readily!
[cut to Rancho and Farhan and Raju laughing, then to the Minister]
MINISTER: [translated] Vulgar fellow!
CHATUR: [translated] You have generously offered your tits to this relentless screwer!
[the audience laughs]
CHATUR: [translated] Now see how he makes it grow!
[cut to the Minister getting more and more angry]
MINISTER: [translated] Is this what you teach here, Dean?
[before Viru can answer, he gets up and storms off]
[cut back to the librarian, who actually does faint (landing on the floor with a thud), while the audience applauds]
CHATUR: [translated] On this August occasion, here's a Sanskrit verse ...
[cut to Rancho tapping Raju on the shoulder]
RANCHO: [translated] Listen to this ... The might of his fart in verse!
CHATUR: [translated] A good loud fart is honorable ...
[the audience laughs, as someone yells "Fart? Go Silencer!"]
CHATUR: [translated] A medium fart is tolerable ...
[cut to Rancho and Farhan and Raju laughing]
CHATUR: [translated] Softer windbreaks are terrible ...
[cut to Rancho and Farhan and Raju laughing]
CHATUR: [translated] And the silent ones, unbearable!
[the audience applauds, then Viru gets on stage and puts his hands around Chatur's neck]
CHATUR: [translated] What did I do?
[Viru kicks him off stage, then cut to Rancho slapping Raju on the shoulder as they continue to laugh]
FARHAN: [translated] That's what mindless cramming does to you!
RANCHO: [translated] Cramming may see you through four years of college, but it will "screw" you for the next forty years!
[Farhan laughs, but Raju gets up and walks off camera]
RANCHO: [translated] He still doesn't get it ...

From wikipedia.org:

3 Idiots (stylized as 3 idiots) is a 2009 Indian comedy film directed by Rajkumar Hirani, with a screenplay by Abhijat Joshi, and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It was loosely adapted from the novel Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat. 3 Idiots stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Omi Vaidya, Parikshit Sahni and Boman Irani.

Farhan Qureshi (R. Madhavan), Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) and Ranchoddas Shamaldas "Rancho" Chanchad (Aamir Khan) are three engineering students who share a room in the residence of Imperial College of Engineering (ICE). Farhan is studying engineering to pursue his father's wishes over his own wish - to become a wildlife photographer. Raju is studying to raise his family's fortunes and get them out of poverty. On the other hand, Rancho studies for his simple passion in machines and devices. Rancho believes that success in engineering is not achieved by memorizing definitions given by textbooks or professors, but by understanding and applying the concepts. He believes that one should follow excellence, not success, as success will come by itself if excellence is followed.

However, this different approach is sneered upon by the faculties, including the dean of the college, Professor Viru "Virus" Sahastrabudhhe (Boman Irani). In contrast, Virus' favorite student, Chatur "Silencer" Ramalingam (Omi Vaidya), believes in mindless memorizing over understanding, in order to reach his goals of corporate and social status. Meanwhile, Rancho falls in love with Virus' daughter Pia (Kareena Kapoor), a medical student, when he, Raju and Farhan unknowingly crash her sister's wedding banquet to obtain a free meal, which infuriates Virus. Virus labels Rancho and his friends as "idiots" and continually attempts to break Rancho's friendship with Farhan and Raju. He tells them that Rancho's family is a hundred times richer than either of theirs, and so unlike them he can afford to fail.

Things further escalate when Raju and Farhan dare Rancho to confess his love to Pia. The three friends drunkenly break into Virus's house one night, and urinate on the front door before fleeing. The next day, Virus threatens to rusticate Raju unless he squeals on Rancho. Not wanting to betray his friend or let down his family, Raju attempts suicide and ends up in a coma. However, with two months of extensive care from his mother, Rancho, Farhan, and Pia, he makes a full recovery. Following his hard-won recovery, Raju discards his fear of the future: he throws away his lucky talismans before a job interview, and his frankness so impresses the corporate agents that they hire him on the spot. Farhan, goaded by his friends, convinces his parents to allow him to drop out of school and travel to Brazil as assistant to a famous photographer.

Virus, who had a bet with Rancho that neither Raju nor Farhan would get a job, schemes to win the bet by setting Raju an impossibly tough final exam (as the job offer is contingent on graduation). Pia learns of this plan and gives Rancho the spare key to her father's office. Rancho and Farhan break in and photocopy the exam, but Raju, with his newfound confidence, calmly throws the paper away. However, Virus catches them and expels them on the spot. Pia angrily confronts him, revealing that her brother, whom their father had pushed to become an engineer despite his preference for literature, committed suicide after failing ICE's entrance exam three times. Pia then flees to the hospital where she is a student. Later that same night, Pia's pregnant older sister Mona (Mona Singh) goes into labor. A heavy rainstorm cuts all power and floods the streets, making it impossible for an ambulance – or Pia – to reach Mona. The students rig up a power supply and other equipment so that, with guidance from Pia by webcam, Rancho can deliver the baby. The baby is apparently stillborn, but kicks when Raju tells Mona to repeat Rancho's calming mantra "All is well." Remembering that the baby had first kicked in the womb when he said that, Rancho leads the students in chanting "All is well," and the baby recovers. Virus is thus obliged to forgive Rancho and his friends, and allows them to stay for their final exams, giving Rancho a space pen that he had kept for 32 years to give to some exceptional student.

Their story is framed as intermittent flashbacks from the present day, ten years after Chatur bet that he'd become more successful than Rancho. Chatur boasts of his wealth and his bright career with an American company, and is eager to rub Rancho's nose in it. Rancho does not show up at the appointed time; Raju and Farhan have tried to find him for five years with no results, but Chatur shows them a recent snapshot taken in Shimla, with Rancho in the background.

At the Chanchad estate in Shimla, they find a completely different man: the real Ranchoddas Chanchad (Jaaved Jaffrey). They coerce the stranger into revealing the truth: their friend was an orphaned servant boy called "Chhote" who loved learning, unlike the real Rancho. After seeing the boy's intelligence, Rancho's father arranged for the servant boy to go to college and earn a degree in Rancho's name, as a status symbol for the family. After graduation, Chhote disappeared. The real Rancho reveals that Chhote is now a schoolteacher in Ladakh.

The three start out to Ladakh, but on the way Farhan calls Pia and learns that she is about to marry Suhas, the same status-obsessed banker whom Rancho initially talked her into dumping. They turn back south to rescue Pia, over Chatur's objections: he wants to get the trip finished quickly, because he is in a hurry to seal a business deal with Phunsukh Wangdu, a scientist who has 400 patents – before a Japanese company can beat his offer.

In Ladakh, Raju and Farhan find villagers working with a variety of gadgets that show the stamp of Rancho's ingenuity, and they learn that Rancho has all of Farhan's photography books and reads Raju's blog every day. Pia and Rancho rekindle their love, while Chatur mocks Rancho for becoming a lowly schoolteacher. He asks Rancho to sign a "Declaration of Defeat" document, and Rancho blithely complies. Chatur turns to leave in triumph, and Rancho reveals his true name: Phunsukh Wangdu. Chatur, mortified, accepts his defeat and pleads with Phunsukh to forgive him and accept his company's contract. Phunsukh, Pia, Farhan and Raju run laughing into the distance with Chatur in pursuit. Farhan (as narrator) recalls Rancho's advice: pursue excellence, and success will pursue you – with its pants down.
