Title: La ferita della fede: individuo e comunità in "Dharmputr" e "Zakhm"

Abstract: This article takes into consideration two Hindi films, "Dharmputr" (Son by faith), made by B.R. and Yash Chopra in 1961, and "Zakhm" (The Wound), made by Mahesh Bhatt in 1998. The two films present striking similarities. Both are set against the background of tragic events, the former during the Partition in 1947 and the latter during the riots following the demolitions of the Babri Masjid in 1992. In both films, one of the main characters, belonging to a militant Hindu organization, discovers that he has a Muslim origin (born from Muslim parents in "Dharmputr"; from a Muslim mother in "Zakhm"). The theme of Hindi-Muslim relations fades into the background, supplanted by a different problem, that of individual identity
