Critic Reviews for Like Stars on Earth
So resolutely caring -- and devoid of real drama and interesting characters -- that it should have "approved by the Dyslexia Assn." stamped on the posters.
Above all, the amazingly confident child actor Darsheel Safary is the li'l big champion here.
What uplifts the film is its very simplicity, sensitivity and its performances.
On the whole, Taare Zameen Par touches your heart and moves you deeply with its sterling performances.
Audience Reviews for Like Stars on Earth
An extraordinary and magical film that should open the eyes of more and more people to a serious developmental disorder and the pain caused to many children who suffer from it - and it shows how sometimes it takes one person to care and make a difference in someone's life.
LIKE STARS ON EARTH: I remembered one reviewer stating they had tears of joy from this movie. They were right on... this is a beautiful film. There were a couple of quirky parts, but it fit well with the overall mood. Told through the eyes of a school age Indian boy, this Bollywood film addresses societies need to see each child as unique, and special. The superb acting by the main character Ishaan, with direction by Aamir Khan, makes the film uniquely superb.
Touching, Amazing, Extraordinary By far the best Indian movie i have ever seen, A real cinematographic picture, something so heart warming that it will take you to cinem'extasy. The movie is based on a 8 year old who suffers from ADD and dyslexia, unfortunately his parents dont see that, and come about the situation by taking him to boarding school. A mixture of "The Wall" in terms of Education and "Dead poets society" the movie is Beautiful I was shocked to see an 8 year old act so well like Safary, the movie wraps up amazing actors, who are really realistic and have a sensibility. Although the 4 hour plot, not one bit will you be bored . Amazing Soundtrack, and Scenery, this movie is by far one of the best movies in the education category, it will make you laugh and cry, and most important it will inspire you. So forget that all the Indian movies follow the Bollywood style, and take a chance, its about time we give these movies a chance, and as i did it, i dont regret one bit. Ram Shankar Nikumbh: lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.

|Nikumbh Sir:||On the Solomon islands, when the tribes need to clear the jungle to make way for fields, they donâ??t cut down the trees , they simply gather and collect around it, and hurl abuses at the tree, they curse it.
