There are many reasons to look forward to 3 Idiots. It’s directed by Rajkumar Hirani — the man behind the fabulously feel-good Munnabhai series.

It stars Aamir Khan and anything the man works on is almost always good. It also stars Kareena Kapoor. Now we all know, when in right hands, what a powerhouse Bebo can be.

All this and more makes 3 Idiots, based on Chetan Bhagat’s Five Point Someone quite an anticipated biggie.

And this teaser of the poster with Math and Calculus glyphs only fuels our expectations even more.

1) bank robbery scene
