    Manages to be effective even though the Indian drama is rough around the edges. show more

    Mark Jenkins NPR

    This is the story of two young people whose aspirations are of absolutely no interest to their elders. Zero Bridge is a fitting found title for the movie, but Tapa could also have called it No Exit. show more
