For those of you who don’t know, Taare Zameen Par (Like Stars on Earth) is a Bollywood movie about a boy with dyslexia who’s sent to a boarding school because nobody sees that he has a legitimate disability, and everyone blames his bad grades on things like his attitude or whatever else they come up with. The separation from his family and pressure to do well at school traumatizes him and he gives up on basically everything, so a substitute art teacher at the boarding school realizes that the boy is dyslexic and actually gives him the help he needs. It’s really good and I recommend it and you must go watch it RIGHT NOW. The movie comes complete with weird songs involving clowns climbing onto desks and feelsy songs involving letters that grow legs and climb out of trash cans.
For those of you who do know and have watched the movie, REWATCH IT.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve watched this movie and I also cannot tell you how much I love it so here just have some GIFs from it:
