About Taare Zameen Par

Hi folks,

This is about Amir Khan's first directorial venture. Amir has always managed to stay in the news, be it for the right or wrong reasons. He was recently noted for his no-so-good comment about the award winning Sanjay Leela Bansali's film "BLACK", about the lack of social responsibility in the film relating to the treatment of an affected child. The issue happened in a very timely fashion as Amir releases his directorial debut this friday which is also incidentally based on bringing up of a special child. The movie has Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy scoring the music and some of Amir's well wishers holding important positions in the crew. This movie holds a lot of expectations among the public. The synopsis of the film goes something like this. Ishaan Awasthi is an eight-year-old whose world is filled with wonders that no one else seems to appreciate; colours, fish, dogs and kites are just not important in the world of adults, who are much more interested in things like homework, marks and neatness. And Ishaan just cannot seem to get anything right in class. When he gets into far more trouble than his parents can handle, he is packed off to a boarding school to ‘be disciplined’. Things are no different at his new school, and Ishaan has to contend with the added trauma of separation from his family. One day a new art teacher bursts onto the scene, Ram Shankar Nikumbh, who infects the students with joy and optimism. He breaks all the rules of ‘how things are done’ by asking them to think, dream and imagine, and all the children respond with enthusiasm, all except Ishaan. Nikumbh soon realizes that Ishaan is very unhappy, and he sets out to discover why. With time, patience and care, he ultimately helps Ishaan find himself.

So, don't miss this one, if at all you happen to, you are doin' it at your own risk !
