Aamir Khan’s directorial debut Taare Zameen Par starts off pretty nicely nationwide with both Aamir and young star Darsheel Safary getting good reviews for their performances.
The movie is about a child suffering from dyslexia, hurt and frustrated with constant rejection. Aamir plays his art teacher in the school.
This is the story of the child and his teacher stands at a blackboard and shows pictures of Albert Einstein and Abhishek Bachchan and tells us — and the kids — that dyslexia is more common than we think, and that it can be helped given the proper aid.
About the child, Aamir says: “He is a very gifted boy. I remember he had trouble with crying. So I spent time with him, helping him with the craft of crying and he did it really well.”
He had repeatedly raved about his film’s sensitivity, and repeatedly hails it as unique, one without parallel “in the history of world cinema.”
There are some reports of the film getting banned in Gujrat due to Aamir’s earlier statements about Narmada Bachao Andolan and at other places, distributers’ disputes have stalled the release.
It’s definitely a rocky start for the movie but Taare Zameen Par is not your average movie!
