Ishaan Awasthi is an eight-year-old whose universe is full of wonders which nobody else seems to appreciate. Colours, fish, dogs, and kites do not seem crucial to those adults, who’re far more interested in things such as assignments, marks, and neatness. Ishaan can’t seem to find anything directly in class; he or she is subsequently sent to boarding school, at which his life changes forever.

Taare Zameen Par, Branded Much Like Stars on the Planet Globally, is a 2007 Indian drama film produced and Led by Aamir Khan. Darsheel Safary stars as 8-year-old Ishaan, also Khan plays his craft educator. Creative writer and director A Mole Gupte initially developed the theory together with his wife Deepa Bhatia, that served as the film’s editor. Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy composed the film’s score, also Prasoon Joshi wrote the lyrics for lots of the songs. Principal photography took place in Mumbai as well as at Panchgani’s New Era High School, plus some of the school’s students make appearances.

Even though he excels in art, his poor academic performance leads his parents to send him to a boarding school. Ishaan’s new art teacher suspects he is dyslexic and helps him to overcome his disability. The movie made its theatrical debut in India on 21 December 2007. Also UTV home-entertainment released a DVD for Indian audiences from 2008. Disney’s subsequent release of the global variant DVD indicated the first purchase of distribution rights to get the Indian picture by an international firm.


Ishaan Nandkishore Awasthi is an 8-year-old boy that dislikes school and fails every test or evaluation. He finds all of the subjects difficult, also is belittled and berated by his teachers and classmates. However, Ishaan’s internal universe is filled with wonders he is unable to communicate to others, bewitching lands full of shade and animated animals. He is an artist whose ability is unrecognized.

Ishaan’s father, Nandkishore Awasthi, is a successful officer who expects his children to shine. His mum, housewife Maya Awasthi (Tisca Chopra), is frustrated with her inability to coach her son. Ishaan’s older brother, Yohaan (Sachet Engineer), is an exceptional scholar and athlete, that Ishaan is frequently reminded of.

There he sinks to a state of panic and depression, despite being calmed by Rajan Damodharan that a physically disabled boy and also a few of the most exceptional students from the class. He contemplates suicide by scaling the fence up at a patio, which Rajan manages to save him out of.

Ishaan’s situation changes if a new art educator, Ram Shankar Nikumbh, joins the school’s faculty. An instructor at the Tulips School for small children with all developmental disabilities, Nikumbh’s teaching style is different from the of his strict predecessor. Also, he immediately observes that Ishaan is miserable and contributes little to class activities. He reviews Ishaan’s job and concludes his academic shortcomings are all reminiscent of dyslexia.

Nikumbh is surprised to find out Ishaan is passionate about painting, also shows fantastic ability in art. Mr. Awasthi replies that Ishaan was an ill-mannered boy also was an impoverished student. Nikumbh shows Ishaan’s mum her son’s notebooks and gives an analysis of this script. Mr. Awasthi tries to dismiss this as the only excuse for Ishaan’s laziness. Nikumbh demonstrates what Ishaan experiences daily in school. He states Ishaan has dyslexia as nicely as he may be needing other conditions, making him a difficult child.

Still unsatisfied with Nikumbh’s interpretation, Mr. Awasthi bluntly dismisses Ishaan’s disability as mental retardation, which frustrates Nikumbh, that criticizes Mr. Awasthi because of his first and inaccurate excuse of Ishaan’s condition. Nikumbh argues that Ishaan is an above-average child whose state suppresses his artistic and emotional ability, leading Mr. Awasthi to feel sorrow because of his treatment of Ishaan. More info.


The husband and wife team of A Mole Gupte along with Deepa Bhatia developed the story that could finally become Taare Zameen Par as a natural means of understanding why some children can’t adapt to your conventional educational system. Their initial task began as a short story that evolved into a screenplay within seven years. Deepa Bhatia afterward stated in a meeting using The Hindu her unique inspiration was perhaps not dyslexia but instead the youth of Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, that performed poorly in school. Her goal was thus to learn more about the story of a young child who didn’t squeeze in the school stream” She also referenced a specific moment in Kurosawa’s biography at which he started to excel later meeting a cautious art teacher, also noticed this scene “became the inspiration for the way the teacher can transform the lives of a student.

In developing the personality of a new boy based on Kurosawa, Bhatia and Gupte researched some possible reasons why he neglected in school. Their research led them into groups such as the Maharashtra Dyslexia Association and Parents to get a much better Curriculum for its Little One (PACE). Dyslexia finally became the fundamental topic and theme of the film. Bhatia and Gupte have carefully hidden the children’s identities at the finished version of this script. More info.
