Question of a Song.   

Thank you folks for the response to Imran and Genelia. They are absolutely thrilled.

Have a very unusual question for you.

You see we had two more songs in the film, one is the female version of Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai, Jaane Tu Mera Kya ThaÖ sung by Runa , and the other is the male version of the same song sung by Sukhvinder. Both songs had been shot. In the test screenings we decided to cut out the male version because we felt it stopped the flow of the story. However opinion on the female version was divided. Through all the test screenings and the final edit we were not sure whether to cut that song out or retain it in the film. Sometimes we would remove it, then we would put it back in. A.R., if I remember correctly, wanted it to stay in. We finally decided to complete the final copy (first print) with the song in it. We figured we would see the final film and then take a final call whether to keep it or cut it out.

The music had released by then so the music CDs and cassettes have the songs in it. The music company was strongly in favor of keeping the female version song in the film. As per their feedback the song had become quite popular. Around the 2nd week of June with less than a month left for the release our final copy was finally ready. We saw the film and had a long discussion again about the song. About 40 to 50 people were at that screening, again the opinion was divided. However Abbas, Mansoor and I were of the opinion that we should go without it. We felt it didnít fit in with the rest of the movie. So we cut the song out and what we have released is what we think the movie should be.

Am always curious about such decisions. The movie has been loved so I am assuming we took the right decision. But a number of people have also come up to me and said that they had liked the song in the audio and missed it in the film.

Want your opinion.

Should it have been in the film? Do you think we should add the song into the film now? The song is ready and its easy enough for me to do...

Watched "Taare Zameen Par" one more time !!! :)
Amazing ...
I think the basic message I got from this movie is, to put
yourself in other person't situation and will get the idea.
Right away you will understand the bhaviour of that person.
People generally don't do that. Here, if parents would have done
that once, like "What would I see while I am cleaning a stray
dog's ear if I am Ishaan?" They would have seen that stray dog
as a cute/faithful puppy and it needs to clean up....instead of
just a dirty stray dog...
