Keep trying, Aamir Khan!
As you all may know, Aamir Khan has been chasing his dream of winning an Oscar for quite a while now. It started with a good Lagaan movie, then a very badMangal Pandey, and now Taare Zameen Par.
Taare Zameen Par is without a doubt a very well executed film. It has wonderful acting and has been executed nicely. But it is not a film that will finally land Aamir his Oscar.
Everyone seems to love Taare Zameen Par, but how good is it really? It is about Dyslexia, a disorder not very well known in the subcontinent. Many people identified with this disorder. Many parents got hope that their child may not be “stupid” or “retarded” after all.
But in the United States and other countries, childhood disorders such as this are well-known. They know of not only this one but other disorders as well, such as autism or ADD. So this type of movie in these other places would not have been ground-breaking as it was in India.
Taare Zameen Par has many good things about it, but way too many flaws to be called the best film in the world.
Not to take anything away from the movie, but it is popular because of Aamir Khan. Take Aamir Khan out of the film and you have a sure shot flop. And at the Oscars, nobody cares about Aamir Khan – or any other Khan for that matter!
