Hello. Good morning! It’s a beautiful day and although, I’m not sure of the weather forecast and the sun is not yet out, I hope the sun shines (not so hard, lol), so that the light can enter my room to make it feel lively.
Today, I bring to you a movie review. I don’t remember the last time I wrote a movie review on the blog since La Bamba. I normally do novel reviews, but hey, no problem. Today is a movie review of a movie I watched recently, and it's from Bollywood. I’m probably the last one to watch this, but I have watched it more than five times already since the Easter Break.
Alright, the movie is Like Stars on Earth, originally titles Taare Zameen Par. It is a movie of a boy, Ishaan Awasthi, played by Darsheel. He is what we call, a student with special needs.
Ishaan Awasthi is an eight year old boy who had academic problems and no one understood him. He was always compared to his big brother his big brother, Yohaan (Yohaan loved his brother so much), who excels well in school. Apart from his academic failure, he has poor grooming skills. No one understood him, and his father thought he was just been lazy and so, he was sent to a boarding school.
Depression and loneliness sets in.
There, he made a friend, Rajan and met a teacher, Ram Shankar Nikumbh, played by Aamir Khan, who helped him to change his academic performance to a better one.
Amazingly, Ishaan has a great talent for art. His imagination might be absurd but he turns them into art.
Reasons why I love the movie+ Lessons I learnt
Success is not defined by being a doctor or engineer. You can be whatever you want, success is yours.
I found out about famous people who suffered from dyslexia
There are many students with special needs. They special needs are not physical only. You have to be patient with such students.
Quotes from the movie that I loved
"There's a merciless and competitive world out there. And in this crazy world, everybody wants to grow toppers and rankers. Everyone wants a genius for a kid. Doctors, engineers, MBA. Nothing less is tolerated. 95.5%. 95.6%. 95.7%. Anything less is blasphemy, isn't it?"
"To show you that there have been such gems amongst us who have changed the course of the world because they could look at the world differently. Their thinking was out of box and not everyone understood them"
"On the Solomon islands, when the tribes need to clear the jungle to make way for fields, they don't cut down the trees, they simply gather and collect around it, and hurl abuses at the tree, they curse it. Slowly but surely, after some days, the trees begin to wither. It dies on its own."
PS. Cute faces of Ishaan
