An eight-year-old boy is thought to be a lazy trouble-maker, until the new art teacher has the patience and compassion to discover the real problem behind his struggles in school.
The house where Ram (Aamir Khan) places Ishaan's scratch-built boat/airplane model on his side table next to his own parents' photo is Aamir Khan's actual house in Panchgani. The actor bought some land there to develop.
Ram Shankar Nikumbh:
lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.
During the scene in which Ram goes to visit Ishaan's parents, he is stopped at a bus station and sees a kid serving tea, a man with a black shirt walks behind him. The shot cuts to Ram and then back to the kid serving tea doing something different, but that same-black shirted man is walking behind him.
A thankful message is displayed at the end before closing credits, which reads, "Thanks to all those children, parents and teachers, who shared their lives with us and opened windows for us to see clearly".
