TAARE ZAMEEN PAR – EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL is a Hindi language drama with English subtitles about an eight-year-old boy whose dreamy – and sometimes disruptive – behaviour masks a problem that no-one is aware of until he is sent to boarding school and comes under the influence of an inspirational young art teacher.

Language

There is some use of mild bad language (‘bloody’, ‘shit’, ‘hell’, ‘goddammit’) although this is not spoken by child characters. There is also use of ‘retard’ by a father who is unable to understand that their child is dyslexic.

Violence

Mild violence occurs in a fight between two boys that results in some minor injury.

Theme

There are scenes in which the child protagonist is seen in a distressed and upset state, including in the aftermath of a fight and when his parents become angry with him.

There is also a scene in which a child is seen handling a firework, although no harm comes to them and the scene is not suggesting playing with fireworks is fun or harmless.
