Seems like it's out there! This link contains some notes. If you have not seen the film, here's your chance. Yes, it contains an audio CD of the background score! One of my first comments to Aamir Khan after having seen Taare Zameen Par requested a score release, and he hasn't disappointed :)
Have a good start to the week, everyone!
Until we hear more from Aamir, here is some information on the release in North America from this Times of India piece:
In a first of its kind deal, Walt Disney has bought home video rights of Taare Zameen Par for the North American market. This is the first time an international studio has bought the video rights of an Indian film.
Wish there was more discussion around the background score. Its music has retained its freshness through the months, and given that the only musical instrument I play is the harmonica, I cannot wait to get my hands on this set :) Here are a few links related to the music:
- Listen to the songs at this link.
- This post has a couple music reviews.
- Lots more, including lyrics and translation, at TaareZameenPar.com.
And I'll end with one of my favorite pieces of music from the film, Ishaan's Theme. Quite a wonder, ain't it?
The official launch is on 7/25. Here's more. This is a video of the review noted above.
Here is a piece (and picture source) on the DVD release. Per Aamir's latest blog post, the DVD release in the U.S. will take at least another three months (expected, see my comments below).
And a big thank you to fellow Aamirian Skorpionchik for sharing this!
