    I checked it a week back too Fenil…It was flipping between 249 and 250… I knew the time was around the corner :D

  2. Delight44

    It was voted out 2 days back.

    In last one month 3 IDIOTS entered Imdb 4 times[ and voted out and again entered and again voted out.........]
    TZP also entered few days back but was voted out the next day.

  3. suprabh

    Anyways, I don’t think much of the top 250 list anyways…but I will say 150 out of those 250 movies are classic masterpieces and 3 idiots in my opinion, doesn’t deserve to be in that company.

    1. suprabh

      I think aamir fans and Utkal are making multiple ids to vote it back in :D

  4. Bilawal

    haters will be haters.

    @sup – as a mod i expect some dignity and refrain from you. but alas!! you are going on and on with your malicious intent. that you were aamir hater was beyond doubt, but 3 idiots too? 3 idiots is bigger than you can ever imagine. Mark my words !! Whole word has seen and worshipped this movie. and they will rightfully ridicule you for making such a post.

    it is sad to see mods of such sites behave like a fanatic. what can one expect from you, you are constantly an aamir and imraan basher. but remember, they are big stars. you are nothing but a piece of #$#@ in front of them.

    P.S: This was an intended piece of sarcasm. The comments resemblance to a group of fans of a star who just delivered a hit yesterday on the face of one mr. shirish kunder is not coincidental :P

    Aap logon ko Shirish-SRK ki mohabbatein ke beech mei IMDB par guftugu karne ka mauka mil gaya?

  7. RJ

    “haters will be haters.
    Talaash aane do – sab ko bamboo lagega”

    Ha ha ha…ho ho ho….Bilawal I pity you ;) :D

    Btw is that bamboo or bambu?

  8. suprabh

    3 Idiots is as good as Waqt Hamara hai or Baadshah..nothing more…nothing less.

    1. suprabh

      Actually now that I think of it..Waqt Hamara hai was more entertaining. :)

  9. aryan29

    For me 3i was not anything Great..it was just about about a good film like many other films nothing more than that.

  10. Phoenix

    Why give so much importance to imdb? So many DVDs movies end up there. Some very nice old movies have very less reviews and ratings. How is it authentic?

  11. e-man

    @delight
    now, we know why utkal da was missing from NG for the last few days…

  12. FS

    Even if it is in Top 100 whats the big deal about it? Out of 1 billion population of India and 7 billion population world over how many visit this site you think? Giving IMDB as a ISO Certified Standard Status is not going to make 3 Idiots more liked or less liked film by people. The collections and trend have shown the acceptance world over which is the only way to measure the acceptance of a film.

  13. Delight44

    The collections and trend have shown the acceptance world over which is the only way to measure the acceptance of a film.

    Shawshank Redemption is a rejected movie in that case.
    Not liked by people from all over the world.
    Rejected domestically and internationally.
    Flop at Box Office,won nothing at Oscars.

    Only 7 lakh people who voted at imdb for SR, think that movie is best ever.

  14. FS

    Some movies made are ahead of its time. At that time those movies weren’t liked by many that is liked by now.

    Same way many 90′s and 80′s movies of hindi cinema which were liked earlier is not liked by the present generation.

  15. prg

    IMO 3 Idiots was nothing great…. Just an entertainer full of cliches which I watched once and forgot thereafter.

  16. Talaash

    Prg – Tell me wch is d best BW movie that deserves to be in it ??

  17. e-man

    @Talaash
    Sholay
    and may be DDLJ…

  18. Prashant

    @Talash: I think Swades n Rang de basanti

  19. Talaash

    @eman / Prashant – give reasons why ur choices deserve and not 3I’s.. BTW I asked PRg :-) He finds 3I’s clinched and so does not deserve to b in d list.. Tell me wch BW movie is not clinched :P

  20. e-man

    no IMDB success or any other can make 3I a better film or a more liked film than Sholay…
    3Idiots is there mostly because it’s an Aamir Khan film. If there was anyone else in the film in place of Aamir, it’s rating would have ben around 7.2 – 7.5…

  21. e-man

    3 Idiots is a series of internet jokes, funny pictures woven around that plot of 5 point someone… it’s very very entertaining… but is hardly a great film…

    now don’t ask me which film of SRK is a great film… ‘coz that will not make 3 Idiots any better film…

  22. prg

    @Talaash…..

    3 idiots does not deserve to be in top 250 list “if being in top 250 implies its a great movie”…… but it does not so top 250 does not matter much to me….

    so i did not say 3 idiots did not deserve to be in top 250… what i said was 3 Idiots is not a great movie…. thats my opinion….. u will have ur reasons for 3 idiots to be in top 250

    “wch is d best BW movie that deserves to be in it ??”

    since top 250 does not matter much to me…. i won’t say this movie deserves to be in top 250 and this does not…

    Black Friday, Jaane bhi do yaaron, Rocket Singh, Johnny Gaddar,etc are much much better movies than 3 idiots.

  23. Delight44

    I feel “The departed” is most overrated movie ever and dont deserve any place in imdb top 250.
    But unfortunately , vote of 1 person dont matter for entry @imdb top 250.

  24. Bournvita

    Most ovverated movie .This one for 3 idiots from my side

  25. prg

    @Delight

    i also did not like The Departed much

  26. Tashan

    now i know why utkal is missing from NG

  27. Action

    The Dark Knight Rises will throw 3 Idiots out of IMDB top 250 and it will not come back again cos I guess atleast 2-3 hollywood movies will enter IMDB top 250 for sure.
    If the mass audience of India learns how to vote in IMDB,then Bodyguard may enter IMDB top 250.(just joking)

  28. Jasp the Wasp

    Seriously, 3 idiots was good but no classic, not even great. What’s there to rave about? TZP was 100 times better, IMO.

  29. Phoenix

    Someone is acting like sanyas here. The story is different in SB however, where this idiotic drunken fanboy takes over who is pretty pissed about my opinions on e-man’s thread about Aamir fans thinking he is God of cinema…

    I only made fun of naive and gullible fans, not Aamir himself. The fanboy attacks me for it. Now he says everything is for fun.

    Or maybe SB, is also part his harmless timepass in NG. But I can’t tolerate offensive jokes about pregnancy. I lack sense of humor apparently.

  30. FS

    Does he look like this Phoenix ——>

  31. Rex

    3 Idiots deserves the distinction that it is getting. 3 Idiots was unanimously & universally appreciated by the people of different age groups & probably is the most widely accepted movie in the last decade after munnabhai series & lagaan.

  32. Ihab

    Indian movies, even those highly rated ones, don’t stand a chance to be in the top 250 for a long time. I don’t know if they deserve or not, but certainly the top 1000 IMDB voters, don’t think they deserve it. They have been rating BW movies damn low and their ratings matter alot more in the top 250 ones according to the way its calculated apparently. Here are the average top 1000 imdb voters ratings for all the highly rated Indian movies :-

    P.S :- Average Top 1000 voters Rating first and IMDB rating in brackets

    Dil Chahta Hai – 5.6/10 (8.3)
    Lagaan – 6.6/10 (8.1)
    Swades – 5.9/10 (8.2)
    Chak De India – 5.4/10 (7.9)
    Mughal E Azam – 6/10 (7.8)
    Rang De Basanti – 5.5/10 (8.2)
    Taare Zameen Par – 5.4/10 (8.3)
    3 Idiots – 5,5/10 (8.2)
    Sholay – 6.1/10 (8.2)
    DDLJ – 5.7/10 (7.8)

    It’s very clear that the top 1000 voters don’t give a sh#t about Hindi movies. If these are the avg ratings for the so called best Hindi movies, then imagine what rating they give to the normal ones.

    How to check average Top 1000 voters ratings. Click on the number of votes link on an imdb page and You can check it. An example :-

    lol at IMDB top 1000 voters,how can they decide Non-Indians to vote on BW movies( i assume since IMDB is mostly used overseas and in general Internet usage is still more there…).

    Till date i used to think IMDB is atleast bias free even if it reflected more on stars who have more urban/NRI friendly audience base.

    But after this “Jabardast Khullasa” IMDB rating has no value for me, 0%. (for BW movies)

  34. Dogafull-2

    Top 1000 voters have given shit ratings to Indian Classics, i request everyone from today at-least to me personally, don’t show any IMDB ratings for BW movies.

  35. Ihab

    But Doga, the IMDB ratings are almost correct since the no. of Top 1000 voters voting are hardly 90-120. So the rating we see, the main IMDB rating, is almost right and mostly consists of regular BW fans ratings. But do not expect an India movie to be in Top 250. The top 1000 will make sure it is a quick visit to the top 250.

  36. Ihab

    Another thing, I am not defending Top 1000 voters or anything but these top 1000 are those people who have been using IMDB since ages and have rated loads and loads of movies. Probably in thousands. So obviously, these people are some mega cinema fans. There are chances of film-makers, directors etc also being part of Top 1000. So obviously, BW will kinda seem underwhelming to them. They judge every min of movie and all that dancing, singing will definitely get to them :D

    Imagine.. I just watched some few HW “good movies” and some foreign movies here and there and started losing interest in BW.. These people toh will spit on BW movies I guess :-/

  37. suprabh

    ihab,

    you clearly do not understand the definition of Top 1000 voters. The top 1000 voters are not the only one who decide top 250 nor they are those people who have any added advantage, when it comes to top 250. It just means that those are the list of top 1000 voting people (and yes they do contribute to top 250) and no they are not the only ones. The most common idea floating around is that all those people who have voted more than 1300 titles are considered regular voters (whose votes count for top 250) which would mean that I am amongst regular voters too..and so are at least 5000 others. Top 1000 is merely a classification rather than a conclusion

    1. suprabh

      No Ritz…but I have been using it for a long time now..probably 8-9 years.

    Bilawal suno -

    (I think it is from an old song)

    Mohabbat mein jabse qadam ladhkhadaye,

    Zamaana yeh samjha ki hum pee ke aaye

  39. Tango

    Utkal dada do you remember what I had said, films can be manipulated on IMDb, if one takes the help of 10-15 ppl spread across the globe?
