Anupam Alone:

i think the movie is fantastick......... it makes the audience to think out of the conventional box at least in the matter of children ........ the children those who are weak in the conventional studies....... it is also an well directed by the debutant Amir Khan as director...... as a actor he is my hero........... it will be sad if move will not be hit ......... but it is imperative that movie will not be as hit the other bollywodd movies are .......... reat is well made movie............


Taare Zameen par was a heart touching movie. It is brillantly directed and the movie is as perfect as Aamir Khan. He has always been a powerful force in making his movies a complete finished product and now we see his total dedication in bringing out one of the best movies Bollywood or rather the world has ever seen. This is Oscar material.

Liked the review except the subtitle "A lesson for parents & teachers".


good movie for every one, must watch, much better than to qualify for the Oscar,


Thanks universelingal!

Thanks Thejesh, it would be great feedback to know why.

Puneet - i think, copying or "getting inspired" is okay if it is done well.

Thanks a ton, Ashish K!


This movie teaches a lesson to the guardian as well as teacher how to behave their child or student, behaving abnormal or very different from the behavior of common children. This movie is really great i love the role of the child by name Ishant in the movie and i admire Aamir, its director and story writter. This movie will be appreciated by every class of the society so this is its beauty.




[...] (old) blog post by Aamir Khan about the process they followed for recording the background score of Tare Zameen Par which I found very interesting: The work on the TZP background score is going rather well I think. [...]

Triactol Review:

this movie was in my heart and it is still there. In the modern world we have a lot of problems to accept each other for who and what they are. We need develop then skills. Because only then can we live peacefully


The movie was very an inspirational. Every scene tuoched and soften my heart that i cried hard enough to heaven. the connotes a hearstring and awaken the minds of the teachers who cant understand the individual dirrences. i really love the movie, is best movie i ever seen.I felt so much better after watching the movie. The movie which a child may or may not understand but one which every parent/teacher should watch to understand their child. i recommend this movie to all, spicially the teachers.

James Pearson:

I have seen many hindi movies about the plight of children Mother India was the most powerful, this particular movie has delivered strong messages about the misfortunes and suffering of childern was again.
Aamir Khan is an actor whom I rate very highly as his ability to adapt into character and carry the strong screen prescence is unprecendented amongst the modern Indian film stars. He is definitely one of my favourites his apperance in Lagaan was top notch.

3d animation:

Yeah, it was quite great movie. 7/10 from my side..

Sad that i missed this movie to watch on 2007. But got a chance to see this movie yesterday. WAS absolutely went to tears after seeing the movie, especially the scene where Ishan got first prize and runs and hug amir khan with lot of tears in his eyes was very touching. A good message for all parents and teachers. As amir khan says to boy parents just look after him, its a beautiful message for each and every parent.

Thanks amir khan for a master piece

Sanjana Misra:
