"An examination of an idea" - a review by pearly

When a young Muslim boy (Julfuqar Ali) accidentally crosses the border between India and Pakistan whilst trying to retrieve a cricket ball, he is mistaken for a terrorist, and whilst trying to escape the border guards, he finds an unlikely ally in Hindu Bhola (Julfuqar Ali).

Little Terrorist is an interesting short film which explores the blurry line between a person's theoretical beliefs and the way that they act upon them when it comes to the crunch. It's a rather simple proposition, and focussing on this simple idea and then taking it to the next level by magnifying it in this way gives satisfying results. It's a well constructed, thought-provoking piece, which, although it isn't particularly fast-paced, keeps the brain enthralled.

The cast add a realness to the film that enhances the end result, and Ali, as the "little terrorist" himself, is particularly great.

pearly gives this movie 7 out of 10.
