Storyline

The movie revolves around Jamal, a 10 year old Pakistani Muslim boy. While he was playing cricket near the Indo-Pak border with some of his friends, he crossed the Indian side of the border separated by a fence in search of the ball. He was then spotted by the Indian security forces and they chased him to the village. Jamal managed to hide himself in an Indian village where a school master, named Bhola, provided him shelter and food. However, Bhola's niece Rani was sceptical about allowing a muslim boy in their home. But when the security forces came searching for Jamal they both protected him. Eventually, Jamal managed to return to Pakistan. Written by kavish nawaz

An Excellent Short....
8 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm often apprehensive when viewing films that have won the accolades that this one has, but for once I truly believe the awards have been well deserved.

This short has an air of grace and authenticity about it which is unusual in shorts (and I've seen hundreds of them!); the protagonist, Jamal, acts as naturally as a child of his age can, (the terror on his face seems real), the beautiful Rani seems more awkward yet nonetheless charming...

It is not without faults; the filmmakers could have dwelled longer on some of the fabulous landscapes presented, and the pacing drops a bit in the middle, but the film had me close to tears at the end, and was such a refreshing change from the usual 10min introspective one sees.
