FREE drive-in screening of 3 Idiots at Seneca

The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) will make their North American debut in Toronto from June 23 to 25. Seneca College is joining in the celebration of this event that showcases Indian cinema and culture, by offering a free drive-in screening of the Bollywood film 3 Idiots, featuring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

The screening will take place at Seneca College’s Markham Campus, located at 8 The Seneca Way (Allstate Parkway and Hwy. 7), on Friday, June 10 from 9 p.m. Seneca is proud to partner with the Town of Markham to host this IIFA Buzz Event, which open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

This event is part of the “IIFA buzz” program which has been developed to incorporate municipal programming and events that celebrate Indo-Ontarian communities. The events are being staged by the cities of Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, and Markham with the support of the Government of Ontario and endorsement from IIFA.

Guests from the Seneca and Markham community will enjoy the comedic film 3 Idiots on a 40-foot-screen in the parking lot, providing the ideal setting for a drive-in.

“3 Idiots” is a comedy of ideas that is as provocative as it is funny, as wildly entertaining as it is insightful. A laugh-riot that talks about the most important of human pursuits: self-actualization.

Released in 2009, this film is about two friends (R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi) who embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encounter a long-forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control. As they make 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 (Aamir Khan), 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 (Kareena Kapoor), and his clash with an oppressive mentor, Viru Sahastrabudhhe (Boman Irani). And then one day, suddenly, Rancho vanishes…

Who was he? Where did he come from? Why did he leave?

The friend who influenced and inspired them to think creatively and independently, even as the conformist world called them three idiots. Where is the original idiot now?

Finally, in misty mountains of unparalleled beauty, the friends find the key to the secret.”
