Critic Reviews for Zero Bridge

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (3)

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

    February 18, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The wisp of a story that drives the film follows the neo-realist template a little too closely.

    February 17, 2011 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Rough hewn neo-realist drama from India has its sociological fascinations.

    February 16, 2011 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 15, 2011 | Full Review…
  • An anecdotal, frequently evocative debut feature chronicling a teenage pickpocket's restless life in a Kashmiri town.

    February 13, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While the film's minimalist nature is its greatest asset in the first act, it ultimately makes its flaws and screenwriterly touches all the more apparent, resulting in some great individual slice-of-life sequences and some truly hackneyed ones.

Audience Reviews for Zero Bridge

  • Feb 27, 2011
    "Zero Bridge" starts with Dilawar(Mohamad Emran Tapa) meeting an acquaintance at a bridge, after which they do a little light purse snatching. They have a disagreement about the split which draws the attention of a soldier, landing them both in jail. Dilawar's devout uncle Ali(Ali Muhammed Dar) bails him out. In the meantime, Bani(Taniya Khan) is looking to replace her stolen passport. While lacking sorely in technique, "Zero Bridge" is still an engaging look at a teenager who is at a stage in his life when he is making tons of mistakes, not thinking that his actions might have consequences. However, this does not excuse his uncle, whose whole life is built on hard work and has asked for nothing, handing down punishments that are on the verge of abusive. All of this happens in Kashmir which is marred by violence, corrobated by news reports and the ubiquitous soldiers who keep people from loitering at a bridge, by force, if necessary. In the end, area youth are left with few options if they want to stay.
