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.

I watched TZP along with my wife (Swapna) and I should say 'Thank
You' for producing such a wonderful movie.

I am married to a wonderful girl who is currently working in
Boton as Speical Educator. In India, she worked with Kids with
disabilities. She is generally treated in a very bad way by the
society for the choice of her profession, instead of becoming a
doctor or engineer.

When I wanted to marry her, it was really difficult to convince
my parents to accept a girl who works with kids having
disabilities. You have done a great favor for us by making this
movie. Now, I can tell every body, including my family that, my
Swapna does similar kind of work that Amir Khan does in TZP. This
is making everybody understand the importance of her work.

Thank You for the wonderful movie. Always, expect the best from

I'm not posting this because I am a mad fan of yours & I go gaga
over every role you play. I am writing this because you have made
the best film I have watched in a long time. Congrats! TZP is
just out of this world. A film in which I could relate to almost
every scene (& no I am not dyslexic).
This post of mine is probably going to get buried among thousands
of others, I still wanted to congratulate & wish you luck for
having made this amazing movie.
I am not much of a movie watcher & have not watched too many of
your movies (the previous one was lagaan), TZP has been so
inspiring I've made it to the movies twice already.
Ok. I have nothing much to say other than, TZP-Amazing. Thanks a
ton for making us watch it. Good luck & wish you many more such

- Rahul

Hello dear aamir,

I have seen your TZP and i have got great regards for you for
making such a trumemndous effort for indian society . I had
always dreamt to see such stuff from indian director but it is
first time that such a touching direction has been made. You
really deserve oscars for this because it is seldom thought that
kids also have their own life rather they are considered to be
good and obedient animals. Hats off to your effort. The best part
i loved in the direction was when u describe about the tree which
is cursed by the people and it vanishes by the curse itself. It
is the same way we do with the skills of our childern in the
indian society by forced actions to reciprocate to the societal
pressures. I seldom watch movies. the reviews of your movie
forced me to see it and rather keep it as an asset.

keep going; GOD BLESS.

Dear Aamir Khan,

Being an american born indian, I have grown up watching your
films. I must say that after reading about you on Wikipidea, I
was delighted to find your blog. I would like to congratulate you
on making such a superb movie as taare zameen par. You will
always be remembered for this touching film and hopefully your
efforts will initiate an aware among Indians all over the world.
Your film although much needed in India, will have a great impact
on people all over the world. I admire you for your work! Looking
forward to more such movies in the future.

Congratulations and Best Wishes Always!

aamir bhai,

i just got done watchin Taare Zameen Par.. and as everyone has..
I loved it!.. it did make me think of a lot of kids i knew when
i was that age... who had problems reading and writing..

also, did u happen to interact with any of the teachers at St.
Xaviers? The reason I ask is because I am ex-student of that
school, and some of the characters in the movie remind me of
them, mainly the art (Holkar.. real name Hotkar) and
hindiTiwari..both have the same name) teachers..

lovely movie bhai, loved it..

Then I went to another school and started to work with children
who had dyslexia. I don't have any university degree or any even
training to work with children with special needs. All I got is
the experience in Armenia where my friends where helping me and
explaining things and my love for children. Yesterday we were
watching TZP with my neighbors and I was crying. I was crying for
many reasons. I was crying for my little Lena, I was crying for
teachers and people who don't understand or even don't want to
understand the children with special needs (I feel really sorry
for them), and I was crying for myself as I realized the value of
what I am doing and that is without any degree. And I am just 22.
Well, can't say much in 1000 characters. Thanks for TZP.

Love and regards,
