Tare Zameen Pe

First of all I would say “A must to watch movie”

I liked it a lot. In fact there were moments in the movie when i had tears in my eyes.

This is the story of a small kid (Ishaan) who suffers from dyslexia (readablity disorder). He cannot read words. Letter seems dancing to him. But no body understands his problem. Not even his parents. Rather his dad feels that he doesnt want to study. He feels that the kid is stubborn and not willing to study at all. So he puts the kid in a boarding school. The teachers at the boarding school too do not understand his problem and he is always punished for not doing the class works/home works. This made the boy very introvert. He doesnt talk to anyone…silently bears the pain of the punishments by teachers. Then comes another art teacher at the school “Mr Aamir khan”. He is the one who understands Ishaan’s problem and helps him. Watch the entire movie to see how he helped the boy.

There is one song (“Meri Ma”) in the movie which starts when the kid is sent to the boarding school and his parents are leaving him there. In this song he is really speaking his heart out..and it is a complete master piece from Prasoon joshi (for his lyrics) and Shanker Ehsan loy (for the beautiful composition). Amazing song.

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin,
Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata, Hai Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata…Meri Maa

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe
Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Bhej Na Itna Door Mujhko Tu
Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Kya Itna Bura Hoon Main Maa ..
Kya Itna Bura ..Meri Maa

Jab Bhi Kabhi Papa Mujhe
Jo Zor Se Jhoola Jhulaate Hain Maa
Meri Nazar Dhoondhe Tujhe
Sochu Yahi Tu Aa Ke Thaamegi Maa

Unse Main Yeh Kehta Nahin
Par Main Seham Jaata Hoon Maa..
Chehre Pe Aane Deta Nahin
Dil Hi Dil Mein Ghabraata Hoon Maa..
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata Hai Naa Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata … Meri Maa

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin
Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pataaa,,Meri Maa …..

Last but not the least, wonderful acting by darshil (the kid ishaan) and mind blowing direction by Aamir Khan.


Maine Gandhi ko nahin maara

"jab akelapan sataye..ya fir apne bahut bade hone ka bhram ho jaye ,  samundar ke saamne khare ho jana.
uski chanchal laherein kahengi tum akele kahan ho ?
samundar ka vishal vistar puchhega, tum mujhse to bade nahin ho ? "Along with these words, starts the movie "Manine Gandhi ko nahin maara".It is a story of a hindi professor "Uttam chowdhary" who suffers from frequent bouts of forgetfulness. Gradually he starts forgetting everything. He forgets that he is retired..he forgets that his wife is dead..and he even forgets that he has a son. And suddenly out of blue, one day, he starts feeling that his home is a jail and he is being charged with the murder of "Mahatma Gandhi". 

And in the midst of all this is the story of his daughter. A single woman, working to not only support the family monetarily, but is also the only lifeline that can save her father from drowning in the universe his mind is creating.

It is the story of the power of one person’s strength, hope and determination in pulling their loved one away from the abyss.
I wont reveal as why he started feeling that way or whether he is being cured at the end or not. But overall it was a beautiful movie. Anupam kher as Uttam Chowdhary was at his best. Every action of Kher including the way he walks, he smiles, his absentmindedness brings tears to your eyes. And  Urmila as his daughter Trisha also did splendid performance. The background score was simply superb.

And last but not the least, the poem ( favourite poem of Uttam Choudhary ) which urmila recites in the end is really inspiring.

Lahron Se Darr Kar Nauka Paar Nahin Hoti
Himmat Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti

Nanhiin Chiteen Jab Daana Lekar Chalti Hai
Chadhti Deewaron Par Sau Baar Phisalti Hai
Mann Ka Vishwaas Ragon Mein Saahas Bharta Hai
Chadh Kar Girna, Girkar Chadhna Naa Aakarta Hai
Aakhir Uski Mehnat Bekaar Nahin Hoti
Koshish Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti

Dubkiyaan Sindhu Mein GotaKhor Lagaata Hai
Jaa Jaa Kar Khaali Haath Laut Aata Hai
Milte Na Shahaj Moti Paani Mein
Behta Doona Utsaah Isi Hairaani Mein
Muthi Uski Khaali Har Baar Nahin Hoti
Himmat Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti

Asafalta Ek Chunauti Hai Sweekaar Karo
Kya Kami Reh Gayi Dekho Aur Sudhaar Karo
Jab Tak Na safal Ho Neend Chaain Ko Tyaago Tum
Sangharshon Ka Maidaan Chhodh Mat Bhaago Tum

Kucch Kiye Bina Hi Jai Jai Kar Nahin Hoti
Himmat Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti
