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

Putting a face on "the enemy"
17 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is an exceptional Indian film--especially since it is so timely. Because it is such a standout film it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Live Action Short.

The film begins with some Pakistani boys playing cricket along the heavily mined Indian border. Unwisely, a little boy runs into the minefield to retrieve the ball and the border guards mistake him for a terrorist. Now, unable to go back to his country, he hides among the rocks until a school teacher happens upon him. The teacher sees the kid's plight and disguises him as his nephew to keep him safe until he can be returned home.

The film is exceptional because it not only puts a face on "the enemy" but because it shows that despite international squabbles, there is decency everywhere. Considering how bloody the wars have been between these two countries, I was actually surprised that the Indians would so humanize a Pakistani boy--making it a film that anyone could enjoy since its message is universal.
