I saw this Movie just now and a good and different movie. This is the story of a middle class couple...Irfan Khan and Shobhana whose child is autistic. How this changes their life...neighbors shun them, MIL blames Shobhana, Irfaan gets frustrated and they are living an insipid life...where mother is always trying to treat her son, though the doctor says that he is not a patient, he is just differently abled, the boy Bodhi is very much interested in painting but both parents totally ignore that, they specially mother wants her son to be a mathematician which she couldnt be. Just by coincidence Father comes to know about Doctor Satya(Anupam Kher) who has made a medicine which can change the brain, he gets it and once in a fit of anger injects her son with that. The son is changed, he becomes a wizard in maths, his mind works faster than a computer, becomes a prodigy, starts doing shows, gets endorsements and become a star, but he is no more their old loving son, but an arrogant, cruel, teenager who is into everything including drugs etc. Now the parents want their old son who was not so sharp but human.
here a line by the doctor ( Rajat Oberoi) is very poignant..why all parents want their children to be doctor or engineer, when will they understand that every child has his own liking and sphere, and then......Think before you dream because your dream may come out to be true.
and at one place Shobhana also says...geniuses come and go, but its only good people who make this world beautiful to live in.
The movie is a little slow in the beginning, but then gets the speed:), there are 3 songs with beautiful words.
The gist is....sab ka apana apna asmaan ha.
last week i went to Hyderabad, there in our building there are three young couples, all three men are very nice and social and helping BUT only one of them leads a happy social life, whereas the other two cant do much, why? Because their wives are not interested in exerting themselves at all, and this set me thinking.......A man's good nature comes to naught if he doesnt get a supporting wife, and so it is very important for the girls to have a caring nature, and it shows the importance of woman in this world:)
One of the highlight of my trip:)........I met Smriti...my blog daughter:) and thoroughly enjoyed my rendevous:)
