Taare Zameen Par!

Watched on Jan-12 and drafted on Jan-14-08.You could imagine how lazy I'm to publish this post now :P At the beginning of the movie, I loved the animation. The above pic is a part of the animation :)

Taare Zameen Par: A good movie I watched after Chak De India.

A movie with an extraordinary lesson; a lesson to both parents and teachers a well. As a 10 year kid studying in class III, Ishan Awasthi's(Darsheel Safary) role as a child suffering from dyslexia, is incredible. Darsheel's performance is flawless. Tisca Chopra as a mother and Vipin Sharma as a father have done justice to their respective roles.A child not able to compete unlike other kids, not able to do his homework on his own inspite of his mother's assistance; unable to recollect what was taught in the class. The little kid turns his imaginations into beautiful paitings on the wall and canvas with the rich colours. Unaware that, Ishan suffers from dyslexia, his parents admit him to a boarding school. A few days later, he faces all sorts of embarrasment. He stays numb without uttering a single word ven to his mother who had been close to him. Aamir Khan, as a teacher, plays a magnificent role encouraging Ishaan which brings a remarkable improvement in him. The most moving scene was when Ishan's father meets Aamir and says that he cares for his son. Aamir slams explaining to him what caring and loving is-a hug, a pat, politeness. While watching his son reading a bulletein board, tears roll down his cheeks. As time goes on, the boy learns to do his chores like tying the tie and wearing socks and shoes etc and also, learns words, sentences, numbers under Aamir's guidance and tops in the class.

In the movie Black, Amitabh plays a great teacher teaching the young Michelle(Rani) the words; their meanings; how words and meanings are interrelated. Without meanings there wouldn't be words. Also teaching her what discipline is meant to be! Similarly, Aamir teaches Ishaan that words and meanings are inseparable entities.

When compared, Amitabh and Aamir play tremendous role as teachers. You find very few dedicated ones these days.

Being an Aamir fan, I've enjoyed all his movies. If you have watched all his movies, he has always played a distinct role; say a lover QSQT, Dil, Dil hai ki manta nahi, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Raja Hindustani; a loving and caring mama in Hum Hain Rahi Pyar ke, a tapori in Rangeela and Ghulam; a comedian in Andaaz Apna Apna, Ishq and outstanding performances in Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Sarfarosh, Rang De Basanti, Fanaa, Taare Zameen Par till date!

At the end of the movie, I was in deep thoughts of my little nephew; not that he is suffers from such a disorder. But the way parents pressurize their little ones. From morning to evening, the kids remain between the four walls of the school. After the return home, burdened with loads of assignments. Hence, no play!

Since technology is within the reach of a common man, most kids do operate the gadgets without any instructions. Playing cricket on a laptop is much easier than playing on the field. Where lies the creativity and mingling among other kids???
