Storyline

The movie revolves around Jamal, a 10 year old Pakistani Muslim boy. While he was playing cricket near the Indo-Pak border with some of his friends, he crossed the Indian side of the border separated by a fence in search of the ball. He was then spotted by the Indian security forces and they chased him to the village. Jamal managed to hide himself in an Indian village where a school master, named Bhola, provided him shelter and food. However, Bhola's niece Rani was sceptical about allowing a muslim boy in their home. But when the security forces came searching for Jamal they both protected him. Eventually, Jamal managed to return to Pakistan. Written by kavish nawaz

Lyin' in the sand..
10 November 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Little Terrorist is one of those Post-9-11 films that draws a lot of media attention in the west, thanks to the T-word.

Other such films include Kandahar and Osama, which employs the equally controversial O-word. But the similarities end there.

Kandahar and Osama are vastly superior films on all accounts.

LT has a vaguely interesting, if clichéd premise - a reworking of No Man's Land, which interestingly ended up winning an Oscar. No such luck here. But I digress.

LT's main problem is the heavy-handed execution of its ideology.

The film has its moments, but they are few and far between.

The best thing here is Meghna Mehta who embodies the spirited village belle Rani really well.
