Editorial Reviews

A truly independent film of integrity and offhand grace, Zero Bridge tells the deeply affecting tale of a student and small-time criminal in Kashmir who develops a crush on an older, college educated woman. Dilawar (Mohamad Imran Tapa) is a rebellious seventeen-year-old Kashmiri boy who lives on the outskirts of Srinagar city with his strict uncle. Desperate to leave town, he looks to raise money any way he can, from doing his classmates' homework to picking pockets in the city's markets. While on an errand, he meets Bani (Taniya Khan), a bright, beautiful woman who had recently finished her studies in America. As their friendship grows, Dilawar is desperate to hide his crimes, as well as his growing affection for her. Once the truth comes out, it causes havoc in their relationship, and threatens both of their futures. Tariq Tapa's first feature is a small movie with a big heart, investigating issues of class and the mysteries of love with an equal measure of craft and compassion. BONUS FEATURES: Leonard Lopate radio interview with Tariq Tapa, Audio of Opening Night Q&A at the Film Forum, Original Theatrical Trailer

5.0 out of 5 stars The best actors are not actors. August 25, 2012
Format:DVD
Filmed mostly in the streets of Srinagar, Kashmir showing the daily lives of a people living in an undercurrent of tension from the persistent religious conflicts between Islam and Hinduism and to a lesser extent Buddhism and other religious groups. A small crew filming without the use of professional or even amateur actors. Actors recruited with no previous experience who, nevertheless, produced a most believable and naturalistic drama of love and survival. The survival tactics seemed petty compared to western standards, yet you felt their necessity of fighting for the smallest advantage; for small lies and for pennies.

My minor criticisms are in portrayals that seemed a little too unlikely such as a Kashmir woman working as a clerk, yet has a US educated physics background.
The other area that seemed lacking was a greater, more in depth, understanding of our characters, the city, the region, the nature of the religious discord, the political entanglements from Pakistan, India and China in that region. But perhaps I'm asking too much for a very budget restricted (although you couldn't tell) production.

Besides the acting the script was engaging with it's mounting conflict, uncertainty, tension and resolution.
