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.

TZP is a great movie. Never seen such a beautifully written and
executed movie in a long time.. Kudos to you and your
team!!!...It's really admirable that people like you are making
such socially relevant films..It would be great if you could
touch the issue of child labour in any of your future movies.
Although it's a punishable offence, the practice hasn't stopped.
It needs more sensitization and I am sure people like you can
help that cause. As a revered public figure, you will sure have
an impact over the masses.

hello sir,
TZP is a great movie,,,
my entire childhood passed in front of my eyes (looking at my
marks in school papers i had many sessions with a child
psychologist, even had an IQ test,) your movie effictively
displays turmoil a student passes thru every year of his school,
i hope every one gets a "nikumbh sir " in its lifes important
years , ( i was one such fortunate ) who could guide a person
you have just earned one more "fan"

Dear Mr Khan,
I know I am probably the last person to watch your movie.But
what to do, Indian movies are not showcased in this town.Well I
am just glad that I finally saw it. I have to say your movie has
such an awesome story and you have told this beautiful story in
the most beautiful way possible. I sincerely thank you for having
made such a brilliant movie. I wish I can find this movie dubbed
in English so that we can show it to the teachers here too.I am
sure they will love it too.

As you have been always selective in Scripts,the script iam
having is a larger that life character,it has something
different in it..You will definately like it

When ever I realize the fact that Iam living in a dream
world(Film Industry)I tend to lose hold on myself and then I get
motivated by watching your movies..One chance would change my
life not only mine but all those who are depedent on me sir.
