Taare Zameen Par…

Just watched Taare Zameen Par. Its not the stars, but tears which rolled on the floor. I am usually a bad sob act to movies, but this movie didn’t waste a moment to make me shed a bucket and a half of tears. I personally could relate to myself, of what I saw in the movie. The cast, direction, music all were tuned to perfection. The best part of the movie was that it wasn’t as cliched as I expected it to be. However there were a couple of irritating over insensitive characters like the teachers and not to forget the father. The director failed to eliminate the Bolly Masala element to movie, a dramatic entry for Aamir before the interval proves the point. The teachers characters also were text book Bollywood style characters. The music though was excellent and expressive, the narration relied too much on it. The vocal interludes looks completely engineered to evoke tears and manipulate the emotions of the audience. Although the movie gets a bit preachy at times, it just about manages to get away it.

The movie had scuttled all the potential to be a truly international film, only if it had not been for few deliberate and unnecessary characters along with typical bollywoodisms. It could have done well to be an international classic. But nonetheless a good two hour worth spending.

It would be a 10/10 for a bollywood regular and a 7/10 for an international reviewer.
