Genius minds always fascinate us. The speed at which they find a solution to any problem known or unknown to them, is something that makes the aspiration quotient even higher. We dream of waking up the next morning with the ability to solve any mathematical problem or equation known to humanity, but these things only happen in movies or dreams.
Talking about movies, there are so many characters from our favorite movies that are pure genius. They are always there at the right place and the right time to save the world. This not only makes us watch the movie countless times but also pursue the kind of intelligence they posses. Let's have a look at five such genius Bollywood characters.
Rancho aka Ranchoddas Shamaldas Chanchad aka Phunsuk Wangdu, 3 Idiots
The all-time favorite Rancho is the ideal genius of the country for two reasons – Parents like him because he is a gold-medalist engineer from a top institute and youngsters like him because he did what he loved and excelled immensely. Rancho followed his heart and studied to learn and not to get marks and became one of the top-notch scientists of the world. Not sure about the world but Indian parents just love him and wish their children would become like him.
Meeta, Hasee To Phasee
Meeta is not just another girl next door. She is an IITian and a PHD. She is ignored because of her unusual behaviour but she is a true genius who has cracked the code of getting almost infinite energy. If you ignore the part that she has drug issues and that she stole her father's money and ran away, she'd give you a serious complex.
Rohit Mehra, Koi Mil Gaya
Rohit was a genius son of a genius scientist Sanjay Mehra. He was mentally disabled because of the injury to his brain, not because he was meant so. After Jadoo, the alien, healed his brain nerves he went on to become a genius who made the machine that could tell the future. Not only this, he was so intelligent that even his son got his super human powers and became a superhero. Accept it; secretly you also want an alien to heal you – whether your brain is damaged like Rohit or not.
Virusahastra Buddhe aka Virus, 3 Idiots
No matter how much we hate him because of his stubborn attitude and dated ideals, he is undoubtedly a true genius. His competitive attitude made him utilise all the time he could. He is ambidextrous and the Director of one of the top institutes in the country. And don't forget the story of the Astronaut's pen. He must have been the teacher's pet as a kid and we know last benchers barely make that list.
Ishaan Nandkishore Awasthi, Taare Zameen Par
You must be wondering why an eight-year-old dyslexic kid is a part of this list. Odd, right? But this genius kid got over his disabilities as soon as he got help and his scores improved so much that the very teachers who otherwise felt Ishaan is hopeless couldn't stop singing his praises. Besides, his artistic skills were out of the world, better than most of the teachers themselves. Don't you want to have such skills at such a tender age?
