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.
About the publicity poster of the film features Aamir Khan and Darsheel Safary sitting in the classroom, Khan said that he knew immediately when setting up the shot--part of the montage that details Ishaan's tutoring by Nikumbh--that it would be the "key art of the film". Khan noted, "This one shot tells you the entire story."
Ram Shankar Nikumbh:
lf you fancy racing, breed racehorses, dammit, not children.
When Rajan and Ishaan are talking in the corridors, Rajan says he lives in the staff quarters as opposed to in the normal student dorm. Later on, Ram asks Rajan where Ishaan is, and Rajan says he saw him leave the student dorm early. If Rajan lived in the staff quarters, he wouldn't know this.
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).
