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

A sweet and tender tale
28 November 2010 | by AssetsonFireSee all my reviews

I write this review only to counteract the unjustly poorly-rated featured review from sherlock-14.

This short film deals with a Pakistani Muslim boy who, while playing cricket in his home village, goes to collect a stray ball on the Indian side. He's spotted by Indian soldiers who wrongly identify him as a terrorist and take chase, forcing him to seek refuge with a Hindu family on the Indian side. The family, with some reservations, shelter the boy.

A tender and understated film. The location photography intimately and believably depicts the flimsy boundary between what is, in effect, one community. The boy, despite speaking the same language as his neighbours, cannot speak freely amongst them, and the surrogate family struggle to him accept him when authority dictates otherwise.
