Touching! :D well thats the word I would describe the movie with. I would recommend everyone to watch the movie. I watched a movie first day first show for the first time :D and every minute of the movie was lovely.
For a review one can check following links
Sadly the critics have given rating of only three stars (quite Good); I would like to rate it at five stars (Masterpiece); in fact in Times of India, reader's rating is 4 and 1/2 :D :) I am indeed Aamir Khan fan so pardon moi in case you do not agree but being a movie buff and one who has seen variety of movies from ones from old classics to modern technically superior ones, take my word, this one is just too good for ratings etc.
Well, being a curious body, I browsed the web for some more details on Dyslexia and I was pleasantly surprised to find many more celebrities (apart from ones mentioned in movie) suffered from Dyslexia in some form in their childhood. Some worth mention are Whoopi Goldberg, Jay Leno, Danny Glover, Orlando Bloom, Richard Branson of Virgin, John Chambers of Cisco, Charles Schwab, Tommy Hillfiger, Ann Bancroft .. *phew* .. huge list!!
I also found that the percentage of children suffering from Dyslexia is around 5-20%! Thats a big percentage! I am surprised that this subject had never come up before! Well better late than never, I am very happy for all children that finally one movie which brings the issue out for all world to think a bit about this and more importantly change outlook of adults to not just look at children in their preconceived notions but like the title says look at them as stars on earth! Each different and still bright as ever!
