Have finally crossed all the ''''t''''s and dotted all the ''''i''''s... I think.

Have just reached home after completing the last bit of work on the film. I cannot believe it is finally over. Will be checking the print in a couple days, I hope there wont be any technical delays. The last one month has been killing. Can''t wait for it to release now.

In response to some of the queries that have been coming up;

TZP is a film about children, NOT a children''s film. It is aimed primarily at parents, and potential parents. Youngsters who in a few years will become parents. Of coure since it is about an 9 year old boy I expect that kids around 8 years and above will identify with the boy and find the film engaging, moving and uplifting. I have no idea how kids below 8 years will react to the film. Sure there are some fun moments for them like a couple of animation sequences, and the BUM BUM BOLE song, which I believe is a hot favourite with little kids, but in esssence the film speaks to an 8 years and above audience.

In my oplnion it is THE most important film on children to come out of India. I mean in its content. How you all will like it I have no idea, but what I can say is that it has changed the way that I looked at my kids. And mind you, I think that I am a good father. In fact it changed the way that I look at all children.

As we take on the burdens of adulthood we often gradually distance ourselves from our children, even our own childhood. This script brought it all back into sharp focus for me.

I hope it does the same for you.

And now I am going to sleep. I mean serious sleep.

After watching TZP movie, I find, Bollywood makes more
interesting movies than Hollywood.
On the TZP DVD, I can't wait to listen to Aamir's commentary, I
hope the DVD contains material on how the story was created, the
people behind the movie and the locales (boarding school) where
it was shot.

Hello Aamir,

I watched TZP long time back and everyday I would think of
writing in ur blog and have finally found time to do it. Its a
great movie, one that has changed Indian cinema totally. Earlier
I used to think only Hollywood could make such movies.

I doubly appreciate the movie because my daughter, Ananya, who is
5 yrs old is a mildly autistic. She may or may not be dyslexic
(she is showing some signs of dyslexia) but she is definitely
special. After listening to "Maa" in TZP, I really found myself
wondering "Is this how Ananya feels about me but cannot/ does not
express?" You have given people like me so much hope. Earlier my
husband was not even acknowledging my daughters problems. But now
after watching TZP he is at least not against the several
therapies that she undergoes.

Darsheel was mindblowing of course but all the credit of the
directing goes to you.

Hats off to you

Hi Amir,

I'm sure you've heard it a billion times by now how great a movie
TZP is. I was touched and completely moved off my feet by TZP.
It's a cinematic wonder - delivers the message in a style to the

I'm myself a dad of two little kids (5 & 2) and the movies has
completely changed my behavior with my kids. I've become a fan of
their every single act and at the same time a lot more tolerant
about their struggles. The change has had a dramatic affect on
all of us and in this busy life - we're able to find more time to
laugh and enjoy with each other.

Can't thank you enough for bringing about such a transformational
change in the life's of my family.

I'm sure my kids are just as thankful and wondering - what if
Amir uncle had made this movie 5 years back, then every single
moment of our life would have been so much more enjoyable .
