Taare Zameen Par

It was a great show, it was a movie not just for kids but for everyone who loves kids. The narration of the movie has been wonderfully crafted. Full credit goes to Amir Khan and co. No doubt this movie will be liked by one and all.

The first half of the movie shows how a boy (Ishaan) can be cornered from the society for no mistake of his. The feeling of such a rejected boy are depicted very well. Second half shows the recovery of the lost boy and how Amir helps this boy in that cause. I could catch glimpse of my own story, and it would be the same for others too.

The movie can be viewed from more than one prospective. From a parent’s prospective it shows how we can some times put our kids under pressure and make them looser. From a teachers view, not always the same kind of teaching works out. We as teachers must have different ways to help the students solve their problems.

Although the music does not seem to be very catchy, but it goes along the movie so well, and its been part of the story narration. The song that comes after the Ishaan was dropped to the hostel revels the feeling a child undergoes when he departs from his mother. A feeling that could never be expressed. The line “Kya itna bura hoon main ma” almost set me to tears. There were many such lines for which a knot tightened right inside my throat.

The characters for all the roles have been very well chosen and presented. Dhansheel Safary has done an excellent job. I was really amazed to see his expressions through out the movie. Amir has done his role as actor and director with great amount of zeal, passion and showed a purpose. Sachet as his helping brother, Tisca Chopra as strict father and caring Vipin Sharma as mother have done total justice to their roles. But Dhansheel Safary steals the show.

I feel it’s a must watch movie. It will go down as one of the best movies I have watched so far.
