Little Zizou

1 hr 36 min | English | Drama | 2009 | 13+

Xerxes, 'Little Zizou' as he is known, is an eleven-year-old soccer-crazy Parsi boy whose fervent wish is that his idol, Zinedine Zidane, visit Mumbai. His older brother Artaxerxes, or Art, is a talented artist whose wild fantasies come to life in surprising ways. Their father Khodaiji is a self-proclaimed protector-of-the-faith who thrives on the attentions (and donations) of hopeful believers. Art burns with unrequited love for the daughter of Khodaiji's arch rival, Pressvala, a free thinking newspaper publisher. To the extreme displeasure of their other daughter, Xerxes adores the maternal Mrs Pressvala. However, the real fireworks begin when Pressvala writes a scathing critique of Khodaiji and public reaction is widespread. As the two households intermingle and conflict, their differences become hilariously apparent and life becomes deliciously complicated for everyone.
