First thing to note is that the main purpose of this film is to inform rather than to entertain. If you are looking for a mast masala film to pass the time, stay away from this one.

In short, the film is about a boy (played by Darsheel Safary) who has dyslexia and the hardships he goes through because of this disorder. It is commendable that Aamir Khan made a film about a disorder that many people in South Asia do not know about. This film will raise awareness for sure. Acting by Darsheel Safary is excellent. Watching Safary’s escapades in the first half is very entertaining but in the second half the movie loses steam.

The pace of the film is slow, and it drags quite a bit in the second half. Aamir Khan’s character does not make his entry until more than an hour into the film. And what an entry he makes – it seems no film is safe from an absurd bollywood song. In this one we have the teacher (Aamir Khan) dressed up as a clown dancing and singing with the class.

Aamir Khan is good (as always) but maybe a little over the top in the caring department. So much so that he has tears in his eyes throughout the movie. But these tears that stay in the eyes and never come out are mandatory in most Bollywood films it seems.

Considering the story is so simple, it would have been good if they had shortened the film a bit.

7.5 out of 10At the end of the day this film is definitely worth a watch. A nice movie for the entire family.
