The film talks about a young boy named Ishaan Awasthi. He has the difficulty in reading and spelling but has talent of art. Nevertheless, his father did not know this problem; he always thought that Ishaan’s bad result is from his laziness and compared Ishaan with his brother. This make him feel dispirited. That the life at boarding school after his father decided to send him to the school give the dispiriting to the highest degree. Luckily, teacher Aamin Khan realized his problem and helped him to overcome…
This is the film of India but I see that there are many similarities with Vietnam. Especially, the meaning of the film is not only for the Indian but also for many other countries.
1, Parents should not compare their children with the other. Not all kids are similar. Each people have their own ability. Parent cannot force their children to be similar with the others. It can be true that the comparisons can create motivation for them to strive but if compared too much, it will become the pressure. It will make kids feel that they are not as good as the others, decline or lose their confidence.
2, Parents should give their children the opportunities to develop their ability and dream. Parents always want their kids to follow their requirements and needs. They want kid to learn this subject, play that musical instrument and want them to get the jobs that parents want. In the film, although Ishaan has talent of art, his father wants him to become businessperson, teacher or doctor. He did not take notice of talent as well as ability of his son. Therefore, instead of forcing the kids to do whatever parents want, they should give them the conditions to develop the ability.
3, In teaching process, teacher should not apply a teaching and learning method for all students. Each student has different strengths and weakness. Teacher should combine variety activities or methods in teaching process to promote strengths and limit weakness as well as balance ability of students.
Moreover, teacher should define the reason of the student’s bad results and give the suitable solutions. Teacher can help them overcome the difficulty, improve the study, etc. Especially, teacher should not criticize the bad result in front of the class, it will make the student fell ashamed, dispirited and be kept away from their friends.
In conclusion, the film has the educational meanings to the people, especially children, parent and teachers. Each people can draw lesson for own from the film.
