Maa – Tare Zameen par [2007]

Movie: Taare Zameen Par
Music : Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Singer : Shankar Mahadevan
Lyrics : Prasoon Joshi

Taare Zameen Par (English: Stars on Earth) is a 2007 Indian drama film directed by Aamir Khan, written by Amole Gupte, and produced by Aamir Khan Productions. Gupte initially developed the idea with his wife Deepa Bhatia, who served as the film’s editor. Visual effects were created by Tata Elxsi’s Visual Computing Labs, and the title animation—the first use of claymation in a Bollywood film—was created by Dhimant Vyas. Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy composed the film’s score, and Prasoon Joshi wrote the lyrics for many of the songs. Principal photography took place in Mumbai and in Panchgani’s New Era High School, and some of the school’s students make appearances.

The film explores the life and imagination of eight-year-old Ishaan (Darsheel Safary). Although he excels in art, his poor academic performance leads his parents to send him to a boarding school. Ishaan’s new art teacher (Aamir Khan) suspects that he is dyslexic, and helps him to overcome his disability. The film made its theatrical debut in India on 21 December 2007, and UTV Home Entertainment released a DVD for Indian audiences in 2008. Less than two years later Walt Disney Home Entertainment released an international edition DVD titled Like Stars on Earth, marking the first purchase of distribution rights for an Indian film by a global company.

Taare Zameen Par has received numerous awards, including the Filmfare Best Film Award for 2008 and the 2008 National Film Award for Best Film on Family Welfare. It was India’s official entry for the 2009 Academy Awards Best Foreign Film, and the film’s failure to progress to the nominations short list sparked a debate about why no Indian film has ever won an Oscar. Media outlets made comparisons between Taare Zameen Par and the British drama Slumdog Millionaire, which won several Oscars that same year.

Maa – Lyrics & English Translation 

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin
– Though I’ve never told you

Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
– But I’am afraid of darkness mom

Yun To Main Dikhlata Nahin
– Though I’ve never shown it

Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
– I do care for you mom

Tujhe Sab Hain Pata Hain Na Maa
– Aren’t you aware of everything mom

Tujhe Sab Hain Pata Meri Maa
– You know everything my mom

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe
– Please don’t leave me like this in the crowd

Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paun Maa
– I won’t be able to come back home mom

Bhej Na Itna Door Mujkko Tu
– Please, you don’t send me so far that

Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paun Maa
– You will not even remember me mom

Kya Itna Bura Hoon Main Maa
– Mom, am I that bad

Kya Itna Bura Meri Maa
– Am I that bad, my mom

Jab Bhi Kabhi Papa Mujhe Jo Zor Se Jhoola Jhulate Hain Maa
– Whenever dad pushes me high in the swing

Meri Nazar Dhoondhe Tujhe
– My eyes will look for you

Sochu Yahi Tu Aa Ke Thaamegi Maa
– Thinking you will come and hold me, mom

Unse Main Yeh Kehta Nahin
– I’ve never told him

Par Main Seham Jaata Hoon Maa
– But I do get scared mom

Chehre Pe Aana Deta Nahin
– Though I never let it come on my face

Dil Hi Dil Mein Ghabraata Hoon Maa
– I am scared within mom

Tujhe Sab Hain Pata Hain Na Maa
– Aren’t you aware of everything mom

Tujhe Sab Hain Pata Meri Maa
– You know everything my mom
