Raina as the principal of New Era High School The character that I really like is Mr. Nikumbh. I admired him because he understands that children must be allowed the freedom to imagine and make their own decisions.
The role of the teacher is limited to that of a guide only– children cannot simply be spoon-fed some knowledge, or dry facts, and be expected to really shine in life! But above everything else, it’s his attitude towards the students in which he is most different from others: he lets the kids have their share of fun, laughter, music and dance. The children are overjoyed to have such a friendly teacher, who not only lets them sing and dance, but also gives them the freedom to express whatever they want, in whichever way they wish to!

The disorder is a specific information processing problem that does not interfere with one’s ability to think or to understand complex ideas. Most people with DRD have normal intelligence, and many have above-average intelligence.
And in the case of the said movie, Ishaan (the protagonist) have dyslexia where he always gets low grades, finding himself always in trouble in school even defying his parents which in contrast to his intelligent brother. As the story progresses, a temporary art teacher was introduced in the person of Amir Khan playing Mr. Nikumbh. The story reveals the superb talent of Ishaan in painting. Mr. Nikumbh revealed himself who also suffered the same problem when he was a child. Later on, he helped Ishaan read, write and solve math equations.
Mr. Nikumbh helped Ishaan overcome his fear and doubt. The story ended with Ishaan’s improvement in learning and regaining self confidence. REACTION: This movie makes its viewers realize that every child has their own pace of learning. Each one is a unique individual who has his/her own strengths and weaknesses. This strength may be in art, science, math, sport, etc. To be called intelligent is not limited with academic excellence, but it could also be in any form of specialty like art (and in the case of the movie, painting).
The movie also emphasizes the importance of family’s support and understanding. Parents should encourage their children’s passion. “Every child is Special” is a great movie to watch because it tackles a lot of social issues as well as it awakens every emotion in you. It is definitely a life moving that will surely change your perspective in seeing every child for each and every one of them is unique in their own way. Every child is special.
