Eight year-old Hamid learns that 786 is God's number and decides to try and reach out to God, by dialing this number. He wants to talk to his father, who his mother tells him has gone to Allah. One fine day the phone call is answered.
Believing actor and goodwill ambassador Shah Rukh Khan can help her brother get an operation to restore his sight, a 10-year old girl takes her blind 8-year old brother on a trek across Rajasthan in search of the superstar.
A tender fable about childhood innocence amid the realities of war is set against the rugged landscape of Kashmir, so long a flash point for the territorial claims of neighboring India and Pakistan. The title character, an eight year old mountain boy, often hears distant gunfire. But it is not until he goes on a quest to reclaim his beloved donkey, which has been confiscated as payment of his poor family's debts, that he is drawn toward a violence he has no capacity to understand.Written by

Its a very picturesque and touchy movie the director Santhsoh Sivan.Even though the treatment is close to Iranian style the film is much beautifully shot and has a fable like quality about it as promised by the director.I can assure you that there isn't another Hindi movie like this so far. The film has a great cast and they does justice to their characters especially the 8 year old boy who plays Tahaan and Rahul Bose.Santhosh Sivan's cinematography is simply superb. Its this kind of movies that needs to be promoted for the future of Indian cinema.Am not spoiling your chance of enjoying a good movie by commenting on the plot.So go watch the movie and have a great time!!!
