The movie might be about rockstars, music, egos and love, but the underlying message is simple - Follow your heart, Live your dream.. We all work, few selected ones work at places of their interest, but majority of the population works only to make a living. Monotonous work leads to a boring life, and then people start cribbing. What is needed is regular breaks, breaks to give yourself time to break out.. Ok, not everybody can be a rockstar, or a painter, or an artist, but within each one of us lies a certain talent, a certain trait which can help us scrape through the mundane, and help us achieve the much sought after satisfaction.
The funda is simple, if your job does not give you the kick, the impetus to move on, then look for satisfaction elsewhere. You'll eventually have what everybody looks out for - Job Satisfaction.. Job during the weekdays, Satisfaction during weekends..
Its all about introspecting and searching for that element within, one that is waiting to come out and Rock On!

I dont really know what to say .. Its just that u get so overwhelmed after watching the movie, that u feel like sharing it with everybody. There are emotional movies, there are heart wrenchers.. and then there is Taare Zameen Par..
Aamir , The Master Craftsman has delivered a flawless masterpiece with the sweet and innocent Darsheel stealing your heart. Its not just about the one particular case that Aamir has brought to light, but the very essence of present day parenting that he questions. Parents today, are after their kids' lives to study hard, get good grades, perform outstandingly, and if nothing more, then atleast outshine the child living next door. The tagline of the movie says "Every Child is special", oh yes they surely are.. cant people understand the simple fact that not every child is meant to do very well academically, there may be other things that one could be good at. The fact of the matter is that there are other things that one is good at, only that these talents are overlooked by the parents and peers, and eventually whatever little creativity lies in an individual dies a premature death. One has to thank Aamir for choosing an issue which is close to every child's heart, and somewhere or the other,in some manner or the other, each one of us has gone through the same feelings , wanting to break free.. As a friend of mine suggested, the way Rang De Basanti brought about changes in the mindset of many a people, and actually made them come out of their comfy homes and fight for various causes, it would be simply fabulous to witness anything on similar lines through the platform of Taare.. Sooner or later, we have to realize that life is not a 100 m dash for all of us, for some it can also be a marathon, a big long marathon where things go steady.. All in all, no matter how parents have come to understand the nittygritties of life, it is too soon to impose it all on small young kids.. On an ending note, here are few lines from the Title Song that capture the very essence of the movie.
Dekho inhein yeh hai onss ki boodein
Patto ki goodh mein aasamaan se kude
Angdai le phir karwat badal kar
Nazuk se moti hasde phishal kar
Kho na jaayee yehh.. Taare Zameen par..
