Kho na jayen yeh, taare zamein par

It is rare to see a movie that treats an off-mainstream topic with such lucidity, that does it justice without going overboard. With brilliant acting (particularly from Darsheel Safary), impressive direction and a moving sound score (shankar mahadevan almost does an SPB in some areas), this is a movie that deserves much kudos.

Dyslexia is a topic that is increasingly gaining attention across the country. By giving it cinemascope focus, one hopes the movie would bring about a much needed change in attitudes - at least with some of the troubled teachers and parents who see it.
