O Lord, thou who desireth a faith as small as the mustard seed, Yet expect me to dare as big as this command that thou hast given me, ‘Mountain! Go throw yourself into the sea!’ O Lord, help me to dream big in thee! O, help me to dream big for thee. Amen
Taare Zameen Par (TZP) is probably the best movie of the last year. Although I am not a movie buff, this movie captivated me and hence the review.
The movie is about a kid suffering from Dyslexia – his problems, his struggles, the discrimination he faces, and finally his restoration to normal health and his return to mainstream. The movie is filled with wonderful background music during poignant moments which will make most people cry. The last scene is especially beautiful when Ishaan(the kid) looks at his portrait, drawn by Ammir(Ishaan’s teacher), and starts weeping. It touched my heart. I was imagining Jesus drawing my portrait like that when he finally returns.
One minus point, according to me, about the movie was that they stereo-typed teachers a little too much. Not all teachers as rude as they showed in the movie. Subtly, Aamir was taking all the glory. I guess, that is expected since he is the producer-cum-director.
However, all in all, it is a movie worth watching and as a Christian, it edified me. I pray that God will raise up people who can make movies like TZP and point people to the epitome of such care and affection which was portrayed in the movie – Jesus Christ.
