Storyline

Jamal, a 10-year-old Pakistani Muslim, mistakenly crosses the border between India and Pakistan and finds an unusual ally in a Hindu Brahmin, Bhola. Indian soldiers descend on Bhola's village searching for the so-called terrorist who crossed over. Bhola's neice, Rani, insists they can't let a Muslim into their Hindu home. With Bhola and Rani grappling with the consequences of harboring a Pakistani and their deep-set prejudice against Muslims, Jamal's only hope is the humanity shared by a people separated by artificial boundaries a long time ago.

Oscar-nominated short from India
12 December 2006 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Little Terrorist' is one of those short films that could have been made into a feature film and probably would be better. It tells the story of ten year old Jamal (Julfugar Ali) who crosses the border from Pakistan to India by accident. He is Muslim and two Hindus protect him from the soldiers who are looking for the "terrorist" that crossed the border.

The film makes a statement and does it pretty good, but again, a feature film would have done the subject matter more justice. Now we do not really learn to know the characters (although that might be a good thing when it comes to kindness from strangers) and some elements seem rushed. The band the Muslim boy has with the older Hindu is established in one sentence: both like cricket and the boy lost his ball, which caused him to cross the border, where the old man used to play. It is not that much of a problem, but I would not have mind to see more of this story.
