7 Reasons I Loved Taare Zameen Par

Taare Zameen Par is movie produced & directed by Amir Khan, starring Darsheel Safari,& Amir Khan. The movie released on 21st December 2007, but it was only on 20th Jan 2008, that I could watch it.
I loved the movie, and here are some of the prime reasons why:

  • The movie begins with a dyslexic kid, and stays that way. Aamir Khan, producer & director, and arguably the best actor in Bollywood today, appears in 2nd half, in a supporting role
  • The principal of boarding school isn't Anupam Kher, with some Ms. Braganza to horse around.
  • The lyrics of all songs
  • No dream-sequences, no flash-backs to make life difficult for the viewer
  • Cinematography: Mumbai at its realistic best, and beautiful shot ofPaanchgaNii
  • The kid doesn’t give a speech towards the climax.
  • The movie doesn’t evoke sympathy; but understanding about dyslexic kids. It actually adds to your knowledge; I didn't know Edison, Agatha Christie, Walt Disney, Pablo Picasso, and Abbie Bacchan were dyslexic; neither was I aware that Indian Constitution makes it mandatory for school to treat differently-gifted children on par with other children
