The movie is very amazing, not just amazing but also very entertaining at the same time you can get a lot of inspiration. There was one quotation on the movie that caught my attention. Mrs. Grandin told Dr. Carlock (Temple’s science teacher) that Temple might be “different but not less”. Temple was different among others because of her autism, but her condition doesn’t stop her from being excellent and definitely from being amazingly different in a good way. I can relate to what Temple wants to be. I, myself, want to be different as well. I want to be different from the others. Different but not less. For me, it is through being different that I proved that I deserved my existence. How would I be different? Not only by having my own decisions, my own principles in life, not only for making a stand for what I believed in but simply by not being afraid to try something new. To open doors that will lead us from a different choice, from a different life, and from a different YOU.

 

                        In the movie, Temple always thought of a “door” every time she’s facing something that will cause her anxiety. The door, for me, signifies “opportunities.” Every morning when I woke up, I always want myself to be reminded that opportunities knock only once, so I will give my best to everything that I will be doing as if it will be the last time for me to do it. Also, we should not be afraid to take risk to gain experience, to gain success, and to learn from every opportunity that will come to our way. Temple was never afraid to try new doors, even if she was not sure about what’s waiting behind every door. It was very inspiring for me, giving me the assurance that everyone deserves a new door of opportunities whatever and whoever you are. It was just a matter of having a brave heart and a consistent desire.

 

                        I became very sentimental seeing Temple’s squeeze machine. For me, it signifies “good character, love and support from your loved ones” As what Temple explained, the squeeze machine gives her a feeling of comfort and love that she might receive from any human which totally helped her to be more relax and to function normally. At times of struggles and hardships, sometimes all we need is someone who loved us, someone who respect us, and someone who understands us better than we do to ourselves. But it would be a great help if we had a good character. Inspite of Temple’s autism, her good character never ran out of sight. As what Temple said, “Having a bad manner would going to hurt you”. Teach kids with right manner, so when they grew up that will be their strength in dealing with a cruel world.

 

                        In the end, no one in this world can ever help you except God and yourself as well, so strive hard! Be different! Prove your existence! And make something that people will remember something from you, make a legacy. Do something good. Follow excellence, no matter what you are and who you are. Let’s all be like Temple, “different but not less”

Every Child is special

Putting your ambition into the child is worse than CHILD LABOR” by: kristine sevilla

This movie gives a strong message which can be easily decoded and understood, to all the kids, parents and to-be-parents. Nowadays, the world is very competitive. As if you are always oblige to do the best, to be always at number one, to always meet everyone’s expectations, or rather, the WORLD’s expectations. Most parents, wants their children to reach the highest post and if one of these children in the race is unable to do it, he is treated as if he has committed a crime as if second place was never ever an option. This movie comes at a right time and it explains to everyone that “EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL”! Every child has something special that no one can ever compare.

 

Watching this movie should be an eye opener to all parents about the kind of pressure the education system puts on young kids. Being a topper and doing extremely well in academics is not everything in life. It should also open the eye of schools to kids with learning problems and they should not be confused with kids who have psychological problems.

Hats off to the director too (which is my favorite actor as well). The screenplay is very nice. Story flows naturally and audience can identify the characters easily. There is a beautiful portrayal of emotions. The child actor Darsheel Safari (Ishaan) depicts any normal naughty kid. An immaculate acting by such a small kid is praiseworthy. Cinematography is excellent and songs are appropriate to the situations. A movie which has a social message, is a replica of the society and (again) a must watch for everyone. This movie entertains you, and still makes you think. It carries a message that life is really not about getting the top grades and competing with others, don’t try stretching all the fingers, they might break! Sometimes in life, it is healthy to be slow and dumb.

In the movie, all scenes are important. There is not a single unnecessary scene in the movie. The scenes in the first half nicely show the various emotions and difficulties faced by a dyslexic child in his everyday life. The post-interval portions were equally good. The best part is the climax-it will surely give you a lump in your throat! On the whole, it is as wonderful as a gem! It’s a true masterpiece. It is a rare film which entertains as well as enlightens.
