It is to his credit as an actor and director that he never once over-shadows the real star performer — Darsheel Safary, who steals your heart as Ishaan Awasthi. Other that that, I was positively moved by it. Aamir takes the courageous stand of placing the story on Ishaan's shoulders right through the first hour and not once do you feel that the kid doesn't have the power to keep your attention arrested. Taare Zameen Par is a work of great acting by everyone, it feels so real and the characters grow on to you as the movie continues. The second hour is equally challenging and most importantly, motivating. Aamir Khan begins ' Bum Bum Bole' with some funny sounding gibberish which is meant to appeal to the kids due to it's playful setting. He has now been packed and sent to a boarding school.
Thumbs up, by Fatema H Kagalwala, :. Also, when the father visits his boy in school and sees the improvement and learns that he is at fault is gripping. The second aspect that I have never witnessed in theaters before was that nobody moved till the credits were over. The moment one is through with the album, the first thought which crosses the mind is that of 'Aah, thank goodness no remixes'! Right from the first scene to the very end he steals the show and our hearts with his endearing acting. They think he is lazy and notorious. Watch out for the one where Ishaan floats his propeller boat made of sticks, pencils, corks and rubber-bands in the school pond and it slowly makes its way towards Ram. After back to back hits Rang De Basanti,Fanaa Amir khan could well have gone for another Masala flick.
A performance that make the best of performances pale in comparison. There are several moments in the first hour that make you moist-eyed. Reminds me each time that I am human and that childhood must be a carefree age to do and go where the imaginative mind takes you. Finally on the movie ,kudos to Amol Gupte and Aamir Khan. It is important to facilitate the development of their unique artistic and other abilities to its full capacity rather than to overemphasize on the correction of the disturbed coded symbol operations. Technically, the look and the shot takings are humdrum. Guest composer Shailendra Barve makes his presence felt with his only track ' Mera Jahan'.
Things are no different at his new school and Ishaan has to contend with the added trauma of separation from his family. Then forgotten in the rush to to attend the next con-call. The emotions reach an all-time high as the kid regains his confidence. We all have a dream. Even more than with the Kite Runner. It is truly uplifting when spirit wins and yet, it is not all about the spirit of winning. The movie will make you cry, make you laugh, make you rejoice and come out feeling that there are some people out there who take Indian cinema several notches higher.
I myself have worked with kids who require help like Ishaan and I know it very well how do they feel when the world is too demanding and there is less power in you to fulfill them. Aamir Khan's entry into the movie seemed over-the-top and forced, mainly because it was in absolute contrast with the tone of the movie thus far. The pace is just right, it moves along with the boy, and takes you with it. Taare Zameen Par moves on as Mr Nikumbh tries to understand and help out Ishaan with his problem. Taare Zameen Par is as much about dyslexia as No Smoking was about smoking. In this class, he starts to tell a story to the students.
They are both fighting the same cause. Thumbs down, by Bikas Mishra, :. I'm willing to bet that you will laugh in some scenes and cry in some of the moving scenes, especially with his mom and him. And then, a new temporary art teacher, Ram Shankar Nikumbh is inducted, and everything starts to change. No one is left out. Ishaan is an eight year old boy who is little different from others.
I wouldn't recommend if you're addicted to Yashraj stuffs but if you really want to see some intelligent film-making, then Taare Zameen Par is a treat. It is a confident and assured start to what could be a fascinating filmography as a filmmaker for Aamir. He would almost be a Shyam Benegal if not for the dollops of humor he manages to sprinkle in his movies. Finally there is Prasoon Joshi. I guess there some part of Ishan in all of our lives. Wow what an effect this movie had on me Though the film is about children,it shouldn't be confused as a film for children.
Having a good friend means sharing fun times and difficult times. Therefore, adults must help them learn to talk about their feelings. And Ishaan just cannot seem to get anything right in class. Aamir scores and how, when his colleagues in the industry are dishing out nothing but junk. A performance that merits a special award! The camera captures every minute detail, every emotion, every tear with precision. The writer just does not deliver a well written script but also his knowledge of research which other filmmakers hardly ever do! Thumbs up, by Saakshi Juneja, :. The song forms a rainbow of many shades of love, tenderness and compassion and Prasoon Joshi introduces many new similes such as Meethi si Jhapki.
The boy's bunked day at school, his room, classroom decor, and the painting competition in the end are a colorful visual delight expressing a million words to the viewers. Being the main protagonist his performance was critical to the film. Technically, writer Amol Gupte delivers an A Grade script. Simple, non-complicated Gulzarji, you listening? Also, let's also clear the myth about Taare Zameen Par being a kiddie film. Indeed, they buck the easy-cash formula by tiptoeing into the mind of a child who is harangued as a duffer. I surely would like to see more of him in the near future.
All of us have been guilty of such trespasses is some degree or the other. But Darsheel has the mischief in his eyes to be Ishaan. What it stands for and depicts stunningly is how the cruel world outside is stealing away our children's precious childhood. But he preferred to make a film on a dyslexic kid, make him the focal point of the story and don three caps -- producer, actor and director. Many people think things differently but in India like country where competition begins at the age of 4 they are just a dumb in the society. Oustanding performance from Aamir Khan Yay! With Prasoon Joshi doing the lyrics, one expects a sensitive outing ahead. Not for a moment you feel anything is fake.
