PG | | Drama, Family
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.
Aamir Khan did not direct the entire film. Ram Madhvani (who directed the Boman Irani Hinglish starrer Let's Talk (2002)) directed the song "Bheja Kum," which was shot in a school in Panchgani. This is duly credited at the beginning of the end credits of the movie.
Ram Shankar Nikumbh:
lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.
During the song "Jame Raho," which portrays the busy and mechanical life of the family, Maya is shown ironing a striped short for Nandkishore. Next cut, he is shown actually wearing a plain shirt instead of the just hurriedly ironed shirt.
The opening credits rolls after few minutes of the film and consists of animated sequences (in order to portray the main character's imaginary world).
