At one level, the film also works as a colourful docu-feature on the alluring lifestyle of the Parsi community. But what stands out are the life-like performances by the ensemble cast — the kids are brilliant — and the gentle comic strain that carries the film forward with a chuckle and a grin. Don’t miss it.

Little Zizou is not a bad film, but alas it does get boring. If there were points for intentions, this film would score big. But because in the end it’s about the experience, I must admit it is at best an average film. So two out of five for Sooni Taraporevala’s Little Zizou; it’s a respectable first film, and one that captures the lazy charm of Mumbai’s Parsi community. In terms of drama, however, it falls very short.

Rather than being an ambitious opus designed to prove a point by a debutante director, Little Zizou comes across as a paean of affection to the people the filmmaker has known all her life. If that was the primary purpose of the film, mission accomplished. For those hoping for a little light entertainment and the possibility of leaving cinema halls with a smile on their face, Zizou might well be the perfect weekend retreat.

Indeed, Sooni Taraporevala’s directorial debut is a charming and cute ode to her community. But sadly it could have been so much more!. Go watch this film. It’s not every day that you get such a glimpse of this quirky community.

Little Zizou is a small gem of a film seen through the eyes of 11-year old Parsi boy Xerxes (Jahan Bativala), who loves football and dreams to meet his icon Zinedine Zidane, one day. He even gets his nick from the soccer star, being fondly called as Zizou. A motherless child, he believes his mom is watching him from above as an angel and hopes she would make his dream come true someday.
