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.

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.
