New Delhi: After the success of Aamir Khan starrer `3 Idiots`, it is time for the `The 4th Idiot`.

But make no mistake as this is not the sequel to the blockbuster but an animated film inspired from it.

Produced and directed by Biswaroop Roy Chowdhry, `The 4th Idiot` takes forward the story of the blockbuster film in animated form and will release on May 9.

"Phunsuk Wangdu (character played by Aamir Khan in 3 `Idiots`) is now the principal of the school, movie shows what the institution would be like," said Chowdhry.

`The 4th Idiot` is the story of a boy, Pappu, who by using the techniques taught by Aamir`s character in `3 Idiots` achieves otherwise unachievable goals.

Pappu achieves 1st position in his school, gets the love of his life and even makes it to the moon.

`The 4th Idiot` also retains the Chatur Ramalingam (Omi Vaidya) of `3 Idiots`, who has done the narration for the animation flick.

Vaidya will also be singing a section of a song `Kar Bheje Ka Istemaal` (Use Your Brain). The other song in the movie is `Har Taraf Se Hai Pressure` (There Is Pressure From Every Side).

"There are two songs in the film. One is `Har Taraf Se Hai Pressure`, which is about the problems faced by the children. The second song is `Kar Bheje Ka Istemaal`, which is about the solution. A section of the second song is sung by Omi Vaidya," said Chowdhry.

"This film is definitely inspired by `3 Idiots`. The awareness which was created by the `3 Idiots`, we have attempted to take it forward. The film is to tell the children that anything can be solved and achieved using your brain," he said.
