Aamir Khan - Taare Zameen Par

I wish everyone a blessed new year to come. May you discover the beauty of Islam and have a new beginning in your life. I pray for you and your family's health, happiness and prosperity.

Yesterday, I got the chance (wonderful chance) to see the latest movie from one of the Indian actors that I really admire, Aamir Khan. In my opinion he is a rare Bollywood actor who continues to suprise his audience. In recent years, he had been taking roles which are of essence. He transforms himself into the character that you fail to see Aamir and instead sees this person he is portraying.

The movie is Taare Zameen Par, don't ask me what it means because I don't speak Urdu. I remember the first movie I watched alone, without anybody aiding me to understand the movie was also his, Lagaan!

Anyway, the movie is about Ishaan, a young kid from a middle class family who was suffering from learning(academic) difficulty. With his parents and teachers, not understanding the dilemna he is undergoing, it seemed like his mother and brother were the only ones he can turn to.

The film will make you realize the dilemna, frustration, pain, struggle, loneliness and hopes children with the same situation go through.

Aamir on his first directorial job proved he have a heart and the talent not just as an actor.

Alhamdulillah he is great!

I won't give away the rest of the story, enough is said.

Just make sure you see his movie and visit his blog site.
