Like Stars on Earth is beautiful

5 second plot: A young boy is sent off to boarding school after his grades drop to an all time low and after the boy seems to rebel against everything. A new art teacher at the boarding school notices the potential of the boy and knows what his real problem is.

5 second review: The movie is a bit too long and it's also overly dramatic (Aamir Kahn is a real softy for this stuff, isn't he?), but it is a beautiful story. And what an amazing performance from the young Darsheel Safary. The story digs deep in the sad helpless life of the young boy, but swings back to an amazing uplifting conclusion of hope for everyone.

IMDb score: 8,6/10
