Despite story elements that don't jive, successfully personalizes new generation's sadly thwarted yearnings for freedom from traditional restrictions in a stymied place.

[Director Tariq Tapa's] neorealist approach, not supported by much technique, gets dreary, but he has an ace up his sleeve.

The fact that Tariq Tapa's Zero Bridge has been forged on such bare, simple terms makes it hard to quibble with the film's more glaring faults

The wisp of a story that drives the film follows the neo-realist template a little too closely.

An amazing first film by a 29 year old director/screenwriter/cameraman on location in war-torn Kashmir. Not explicitly a radical film, it has references to this beautiful country's war-related suffering in almost every frame.

Rough hewn neo-realist drama from India has its sociological fascinations.

The gritty tale, crafted in the social realist tradition, is a raw metaphor touching on the psychology of mass misery in that Indian occupied police state, where even the movie theaters are now expropriated military headquarters.

Made for a song with a non-pro cast and DV camera gear out of his backpack, Tariq Tapa's debut feature shows the young Kashmiri-American as a filmmaker of enormous promise and precocious maturity.

An anecdotal, frequently evocative debut feature chronicling a teenage pickpocket's restless life in a Kashmiri town.
