Taare Zameen Par, Like Stars on Earth (2007) Full Movie English Subtitle

This is a beautiful movie sensibly made to appeal to all sorts of audience across all strata of society. It touches a chord in your heart and connects with everybody. No one is left out. It does not matter if you are a parent, uncle, aunt, teacher, brother or sister. It's sure to move you. I dare say, TAARE ZAMEEN PAR is a commercial success as well as it will receive critical acclaim. Aamir Khan scores big time with his debut as a director.

But the star here is not Aamir, its Darsheel Safary, who plays the central character of Ishaan Awasti. Ishaan is a bubbly eight-year-old who sees a different world, always getting into fights and always faring badly in school. While his elder brother is a bright student, Ishaan has spent two years in the third standard.


Exasperated, his father packs him off to a boarding school as a punishment. Already struggling with studies, Ishaan now has to deal with the pangs of separation. If earlier he would paint the canvass bright with colours, now he does nothing of the sort. In school, he has gone from bad to worse, but no one seems to know the reason for his dilemma. The truth is, he is dyslexic. In short, Ishaan has a learning disorder marked by impairment of the ability to recognize and comprehend written words.
