Author Chetan Bhagat says Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che is a real film without frills. He also says that people are bound to compare Kai Po Che! with 3 Idiots, both of which are based on his books, though they are entirely different films.

“That (comparisons) will happen. (The film) ’3 Idiots’ was also made (based) on a book… But if you watch ’3 Idiots’ and ‘Kai Po Che!’ together, you will not feel that one is lower than the other. Both are equal. I would say ‘Kai Po Che!’ has been made as well as ’3 Idiots’,” Chetan Bhagat said here Thursday in an interview.

The plot of Kai Po Che! is inspired from Bhagat’s ‘The 3 Mistakes of my Life’ while Aamir Khan-starrer 3 Idiots was is the big screen adaptation of his bestseller Five Point Someone.

Kai Po Che!, recently premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film was welcomed warmly and that audiences had responded very well to it.

“I am more than satisfied, I am very happy. Forget Indians, you can show it to anyone, it is of such high standards. It really touches you, very emotional and there would be hardly anyone who would not be touched by the film,” Bhagat said.

“Even European audiences, who don’t know about Gujarat or India, Hindu religion or Muslims, they were so moved by it and that too watching it with subtitles. I think it is going to be something else here,” he added.

Kai Po Che!, releasing Feb 22, features Rajkumar Yadav, Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Amrita Puri.
