Taare Zameen Par

December 21, 2007

On a lazy afternoon, succumbing to my little sister’s exhortations, I went to watch this movie. First of all, I went to watch Taare Zameen Par without any expectations. Because I watched it on the release day, I didn’t have any reviews to base my expectations on. This helped me watch the movie with an open mind and I was amazed by what i saw in those 120 minutes.

Taare Zameen Par comes with the message “Every child is special” and lives up to it. It tells the story of dyslexic boy whose world is filled with colours, fishes, kites and everything that is remotely liked with grades amd homework. The movie unfolds to show how he, inspite of being labelled as a ‘failure’ by his father and teachers, turns out to be a confident and achieving person, with the right guidance from an arts teacher.

Darsheel Safary who plays the dyslexic child, gives a soul rendering performance. Aamir Khan is commendable in his role as an arts teacher, though his role is very small compared to Darsheel’s. Music of the movie is heartwarming. I particularly liked the song “Maa”(lyrics by prasoon joshi and sung by shankar mahadevan), which made me choke up in between, because of its intense portrayal of the child’s emotions.

Kudos to Aamir Khan for taking up a subject which is very relevant in today’s world. With the world becoming more and more competitve each day, most often, parents push for high grades without realising what the child is actually going through. I believe this will be a wake up call for many such parents. The movie helps to bring more awareness about dyslexia which is still a disfunctionality not known to many people.

My five stars for Taare Zameen Par :). Don’t miss it.
