HopeTaare Zameen Par: Every child is special

One of Aamir Khan's career-defining movies, Taare Zameen Par not only added a feature to his already glorious hat but also proved to be a successful directorial debut for Aamir.

In the film, he played a mentor to a child suffering from dyslexia.

The film had a very mature take on dyslexia and a lesson for parents in raising up their children right.

MagicKoi Mil Gaya: Friend from another world

'Koi... Mil Gaya' can be called one of the most challenging movies of Hrithik Roshan's career. In this movie, he plays a mentally unstable person who has grown in age but not in mind.

His friendship with Jaadu became a hot favorite among children. We all dreamt and hoped to find our very own Jaadu.

Everyone can use a little magic in life!

ThrillsHome Alone Franchise: The never-ending comedy

Macaulay Culkin's portrayal of Young Kevin in 'Home Alone' is still etched in our memories.

Every time that lad headed for a new adventure, the child in us cringed being watched over by our parents 24/7.

Kevin's healthy notoriety and his way of dealing with thieves motivated us hugely; we were left wishing for a genius mind like his with exceptional physical powers.

InnocenceMasoom: Lakdi ki kathi, kathi mein ghoda

Although 'Masoom' directed by Shekhar Kapur deals with a serious issue of a man's world crashing down on discovering that he has an illegitimate kid, the innocence portrayed by the child artists throughout the movie makes for a great watch.

Also, this film gave us a song that still remains every child's anthem 'Lakdi ki kaathi, kaathi mein ghoda'.

FriendlinessBhoothnath: A friendly ghost

Bhoothnath is one movie that would actually make you fall in love with something you have been fearing all your life: ghosts.

Amitabh who plays the ghost is unfriendly at first but slowly the kid befriends the ghost; later they both are inseparable and Banku finally helped him make his final journey.

The film teaches us that friendship is age-agnostic.
