It takes great range, versatility and courage to produce superior movies. Aamir Khan has proved that he belongs to a class of his own. Success of Taare Zameen Par shows that people do appreciate intelligent cinema if packaged correctly. TZP tickles sensitivities of the viewer by talking about an issue that most of us are aware of but not open to discuss.
In the clutter (and stupidity) of most bollywood movies, TZP stands tall. Its departure from typical melodrama should show the way for rest of the fraternity. The movie has a wonderful message and to top it, it has subtlety, for the intelligent audience. Unlike most of bollywood cinema, it is not “in your face” movie, No masala, no nonsense, a clear message and mind blowing performance…
It encourages the viewer to think/anticipate and grasp.
Shankar Ehasan Loy’s music has moved a step closer to rock with bold use of guitar scores and English style music. Prasoon Joshi’s lyrics vary between inspiring to mediocre; he lacks the rhymes and melody of Akhtar Saab but he’s done his job well!
The lead actor, the boy, Darsheel Safary has performed superbly well, way too well infact.
Even though ‘Bijli’ka jhataka will set you off by 200+ bucks, go and watch the movie in PVR.
* Note: I am note paid by PVR or any of the producers to promote the movie :p
