This novel takes the point of view of the back-benchers..the laggards…intelligent people who refuse a part of the sytem. Theri rebellion is simple…almost simplistic. Hari, Alok and Ryan have very little in common..except their friendship and the three letters I.I.T.
¼br /> The novel is well written with good hurmor and moves with good pace.
And it achieves its purpose…it takes you back to your college…your bridge between teenage and adult hood. In a lot of ways a professional college is where you feel like a guinea pig…sometimes in ur own hands.
First fag, first kiss…etc to name a very few of the firsts that feature in the novel.
Forget the plot, overlook the holes in the scrpt, and bear the repetitive ‘f’ word…the film is worth watching anyday. You can safely put it in the league of “A fish called Wanda”, or ” Ace Ventura: The Pet Detective”.
Joe Pesci is brilliant and so is Marisa Tomei with all her wise-cracks.
Film is great with a fast paced screenplay and the funny situations that are thrown up, and the controlled performances by the lead actors.
My picks: 1) Joe Pesci and his false-alarms
2) Nervous competition for Joe Pesci
3) ‘Finessing’ prosecution attorney by Gambini
4) The first two scenes…pretty original
5) The final encounter: Marisa and her automobile expertise.
