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

Simple and straightforward.
28 January 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ashvin Kumar has really done a good job. It's true an Oscar nomination for this project is a bit surprising perhaps, but "Little Terrorist" can safely be called an intelligent and original work. In present-day circumstances the basic plot may look like a cliché yet it is presented in a genuine manner. The young actors did their job well also.

It may be said that so much else could be shown in this film and that it lacks interesting plot twists. Indeed this film may appear a little short paced and unnecessarily detailed. But a short film like this doesn't have to always entertain the viewers. The basic message is conveyed. And we are happy for that.
