A bit too long for such a story, and a tad unneven considering all the sad, happy, and bizzarre moments it has, but ultimately heart warming and a note to every student, teacher, parent, and any other person who doesnt quite see the true beauty in things and is too deep in the strict society the modern ages has us trapped on.

It's one of those films which could change your perspective forever.

Sentimental and generic but sometimes things are generic for a reason as this is indeed very moving.

Full of creativity.
An Extraordinary movie.
It leaves you so attached to the main character that you have Tears in your Eyes when the movie comes to an end.

As a teacher this movie has significantly changed my perspective on my role. I am more aware of the need to take time to understand each child in my class, and not judge them based on outward appearance and behavior. The movie was well written and produced and both main actors, teacher and pupil, have stolen my heart for always.

Great movie! When will people realize that the English spelling system is disabled, full of flaws and misspelled words causing all kinds of issues for kids and teachers, slowing down the rate by which kids can learn, can learn to read, can learn to write and spell. They care about kids? Really? Well, maybe it is time to spell "are" like it should be spelled "ar" like "am". All fo those who are spelling with an extra "e", you ar wrong!

One of the better Bollywood movies I have seen. It does get a little preachy at times, but it is a sweet movie. Aamir Khan should be proud. (First and only viewing - 8/4/2014)

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.

A film about a dyslexic boy, whose reality includes people who don't see the world in a way he does, until a teacher resolves to make his world better by recognizing and nurturing his creativity.

Really inspiring and charismatic all around. The musicals numbers are well done, but they add up to be rather long in such a long movie.

Aamir Khan's "Taare Zameen Par" is a spectacularly life-changing, life-affirming and moving movie about the importance of being accepted in life. Here's a rare and magical Bollywood movie with no dance numbers, funky costume designs and over-dramatic melodrama. It doesn't feature a hero trying to save a heroine. Neither does it have over-the-top action sequences that kill your brain cells. Instead, it is none of the above: a heartbreaking, insightful and deeply courageous film that explores the affect that a mental disease can have on a young child. What's surprising is that Aamir Khan, a Bollywood star known for starring in commercial films, has made a movie unlike any he has ever starred in. The performances are phenomenal, the writing a joyous sight to bold and the direction superb. This is one of those rare Bollywood movies with a powerful message, meaning and surprisingly enough, a reason to exist! And what an emotional rollercoaster it is. In newcomer star Darsheel Safary, Aamir Khan has founded the birth of a movie star. The birth of an actor that can carry an entire film just through the expressions on his face, communicating visually what may not have worked if he spoke. Despite almost little to no dialogue near the end of the film, Safary is an actor that makes you feel every single emotion there is in your body. The same is the case with the film itself. It challenges you to discover, to think outside of the box, to recognize the beauty of a great story rather than jazzy musical numbers. Aamir Khan has without a doubt created a masterpiece, a film that despite running three hours, flies by in seconds due to Safary's magnificent performance. It's a movie that reminds me why I love movies in the first place...

The films motif is crystal clear; serve the capitalists! SO it picks up well constructed school, neatly uniformed students, slim looking parents with a fat salary and problems which are arsing from the comfortable life styles, Mr. AAmir you assume India is built by these bunch of capitalist... SO amateurish
