Thanks for the link. I sent in my request yesterday and till now I have not received any email confirming if I get to go or not. And to top it they still do NOT say on the link (above) if the tickets are sold out. Free ka matlab - who cares!!!


Do not believe everything posted by certain individuals on this forum. Sometimes there is a vested interest in the posts. I am really curious to know if anyone received free tickets from this post. And of course all responders should have a minimum of 15 posts prior to their posting for obvious reasons.

This movie is outstanding....Just saw the first show.
It is a movie about children for Adults and not a kid movie at all..
"On the whole, TAARE ZAMEEN PAR is an outstanding work of cinema. To miss it would be sacrilege. It has everything it takes to win awards and box-office rewards!" This comment, very true. Please do not miss.
I am sure, even hollwood will applaud this bollywood flick. It has an oscar written all over it.

Amazing film. Very very touching. Aamir earned a lot of respect from me with this film. Must see for all families.

It will win over many hearts and awards.

Watched it in AMC forum today ..absolutely wonderful movie...that kid actually delivered an Oscar quality performance.
After this film Amir took himself into a different level (which SRK and even Big B couldn't reach..they will be strictly remembered as great actor/entertainer)
Amir(as actor/director/producer)now Bollywood's answer to Hollywood's Clint Eastwood:cheers:

‘Impossible is nothing’- is one of the several messages that Taare Zameen Par delivers to the audience. All that is needed is understanding, compassion, dedication and a’ little help from my friends’.
The movie revolves around an 8 year old boy Ishaan Awasthi ( Darsheel Safary- whose superlative acting deserves special praise), who is more artistically inclined than being involved in the three basic R’s of Reading. ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic. Aamir, in his directorial debut, has gone to immense pains to depict the minutiae of Ishaan’s world and to examine every single detail of the child’s thought pattern and his relationship with his teachers and parents. Fed up with his disability of being unable to cope with his incomprehension of the three R’s, Ishaan’s parents pack him off to boarding school to discipline him, where once again the teachers fail to realize his challenges and his schoolmates ridicule him except for one, a physically challenged boy but extremely good at studies, who becomes his best friend.
A substitute art teacher, Ram Shankar Nikumbh (Aamir Khan) dressed as a pixie and playing the flute bursts onto the scene at the boarding school entertaining the students with the song “Bum Bum Bhole” choreographed by the colossus Shiamak Davar. This non-conformist teacher, who calls all his students “doston” (friends), quickly diagnoses Ishaan’s deficiency and with kindness, patience and perseverance helps him overcome his disabilities, concentrate on his strengths, and bring out the best in him. The final moments of the movie devoted to manifesting how the child regains his confidence is extremely compelling and highly emotional.
How the movie illustrates the remarkable mother –son bonding, the strict father-son relationship, and the adulation Ishaan feels for his elder brother, Dada, who excels in his studies, is all very masterfully done. The movie will have teachers, parents and children drawing parallels from their own lives. Aamir Khan has brought out the best from all the actors in the film, but what is noteworthy is the exemplary performance from Darsheel, whose look alone speaks a thousand words. Aamir, who is producer, director and also acts in this movie, has definitely carved himself a special niche in the annals of Indian cinema with this heart wrenching and emotional movie on a very socially relevant issue.
This entertaining, enlightening and penetrating non–conventional chef d’oeuvre is a must see for all parents, teachers and students the world over!

However I found that neither the other teachers nor the parents were able to identify the child's challenge a bit hard to swallow.
O/w the movie is amazing. Never lose hope.

It is not surprising because most parents and teachers i have met cannot identify Dyslexia in a child. They punish the child for being lazy or just call it dumb. I know many children closely who suffer from this and have suffered at the hands of Parents,Teachers and there peers. In Canada there are many resources available for these types of kids but in India there are none. such children get left behind in the Rat race.
