Touche! Perfectionist Khan, Aamir has once again proved that he is the man of his word. Having released the first look of his film, Taare Zameen Par to public foremost, on the film's official website and then later releasing it worldwide, Aamir indirectly has strengthened the faith of his audiences in him and his debut directorial. Watch the promo and you are moved by the simplicity and the purity of the subject. 'Every child is special' reads the tag line and that is exactly what you see in this eagerly awaited trailer.
The gregariousness of children, their innocence, laughter, playfulness, are all captured so naturally and perfectly that you don't feel like you are watching a film. Whew! The first few minutes of the promo definitely tugs at your heart and automatically involves you in being a part of them without you even realizing it. But like all trailers end leaving a hint that there is more to what you see, Taare Zameen Par too in the end frame speaks volumes. With Aamir and the main child artist, Darsheel gazing into space asking the audience a silent question, you are left confirmed thinking that there is more to the story than it tells.
The film has been spoken about for quiet some time now. The audiences, the film fraternity and Aamir's die hard fans all alike are wondering in anticipation about what the film, Taare Zameen Par, would be like. After all it is DJ's (RDB) aka Bhuvan (Lagaan) aka Rehan's (Fanna) first directorial film and moreover the subject is one which was least expected from Aamir Khan, at least not for his first evers, to which Aamir answers -
“My choice of films is governed by my heart and instinct. I'm not governed by what the market demands. I loved the script of Taare Zameen Par and that's why I agreed to be a part of it. It's very simple. When I'm reading a script, I react to it as a member of the audience. If it excites me, I want to do it, irrespective of the budget."
A film when completed does not end for there are experiences of the making to share and if you guys want to regale the rare memories of this specific movie making then log onto Aamirs official and painstakingly created website where you can even chat with the media shy guy answering all your queries with heartfelt honesty. Trust the simpleton ala perfectionist ala prudent powerhouse of talent to be 'different' in his communication and you will get the most unique and rare combination of first ever.
