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.
While Ishaan's parents are driving home, after receiving his poor academic report, his mother laments "I teach him myself. All day it's 'Ishaan! Ishaan! Ishaan!'". But, when she says the third "Ishaan" word, her lips are closed.
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).
