Little Zizou story, synopsis, plot

Plot Summary: It is the story of an eleven year old Parsi boy who is crazy for soccer and wishes that his idol Zinedine Zidane, visits Mumbai. His elder brother Ataxerxes is an artist while his father Khodaiji is a self-proclaimed protector-of-the-faith who actually thrives on the donations of the needy.

    "Little Zizou", a comedy about faith and hope, pain and loss, is framed around a gentle yet powerful parable of tolerance.

    Sooni Taraporevala’s directoral debut is a colorful tale set in an eccentric Parsi community in contemporary Bombay. Xerxes (Little Zizou) is an 11-year-old football-crazed boy whose one ardent desire is that his long-dead mother bring the French soccer star Zinedine Zidane (Zizou) to Bombay. His father is a pompous, self-proclaimed leader and religious bigot. His brother Artaxerxes, on the other hand, is a quiet, talented cartoonist hopelessly in love with the daughter of his father's archrival, a fun-loving rational reformer and owner of a community newspaper. Events pit the two patriarchs against each other in the backdrop of a Fellini-esque Parsi world in this uncommonly funny satire.
