Taare Zameen Par
Taare Zameen Par (Stars on Earth) is about a small boy suffering from the learning disability dyslexia.Taare Zameen Par becomes the story of any and every child who is being robbed off his childhood by insensitive parents and teachers who believe their job is to create race-winning rats for the rat race rather than Einsteins, Edisons, Agatha Christies and Leonardo Da Vincis.Taare Zameen Par takes us into the heart of Ishaan's world: his struggles with the three r's, his ambitious father who thinks Ishaan needs discipline, his caring-but-harried mother, his loving big brother who watches out for him. And his art teacher Ram Shankar Nikumbh, who saves Ishaan from sinking into a dark box.It's also the first time we've seen the dark, traumatic side of childhood. Bullying, and constant haranguing by teachers and parents in hindi movie.
