'Taare Zameen Par' gets standing ovation in Seattle

November 2, 2008 11:04am CST
"Bollywood star Aamir Khan's belief that people across the globe react to some films in the same way was reaffirmed when his film got a standing ovation from the audience present at a special screening in Seattle. Aamir's directorial debut, “Taare Zameen Par”, which released in India Dec 21, 2007, moved the audience with its sensitive subject of an eight-year-old dyslexic boy and a teacher, played by Aamir, bringing the child out of his predicament. The film drew a similar response in Seattle Oct 29, where it was being screened for the annual conference of the International Dyslexia Association. “Everyone just loved the film and it had struck a really deep chord,” Aamir wrote on his blog www.aamirkhan.com/blog. “In fact the reaction was exactly as it had been with audiences back home in India. It really amazes me how people from all across the world react to some films in pretty much the same way, which reaffirms the fact of how similar we all are no matter which part of the globe we come from,” he added." I guess that Aamir is right. TZP is one of those movies which will be appriciated worldwide. I think This one will bag Oscars for India. What's your take on this?

Yes indeed a lovely movie. Wish bollywood comes up with flicks like these more frequently. Have you seen "A Wednesday"? I guess it is the best movie of the season.
