The Puppet

32 mins
9 / 10 (106)


Anzar faces scorn from his elders for his poor performance in school and is constantly compared to the other school-kids. Forcefully and unreasonably expected to outscore the high-achieving Sadat in the next exam, he seeks the help of a mysterious stranger.

MUBI's take

Two brothers get more than they bargained for in Tamaash, a miniature Kashmiri charmer as rich in local color as it is rewarding in its pair of pint-sized performances.
