"Little Terrorist tells the moving story of a Pakistani Muslim boy who accidentally crosses the Pakistani-Indian border which is riddled with landmines. Arriving in a strange country which regards him as a terrorist, he is taken in by the old orthodox Hindu Bhola, who hides him from the Indian soldiers." (15 mins)
The movie has received world wide recognition (including the First Prize at Montreal World Film Festival in a 157-film competition). Ashvin assembled the multinational crew through a website (Shooting People), that helps film-makers interact. His earlier movie, Road to Ladakh (48mins) is being remade into a full-length feature [reminded of Bharat Bala's "Hari Om"]
Now to the Academy Awards. Good luck.

dude, wasn't there a similar real-life incident, that happened sometime recently? I forget the specifics, but I'm sure it was true.
You are right.
I would like to watch this one. Seems to be interesting. Heard that Page 3 made a good statement too.
Will these films page3/little terr hit theatres?
DVD (that has both "L Terrorist" & "R to Ladakh") is a tad expensive at 25$. Guess its not out on Netflix yet. Dont think that will happen ever. Still if any of you guys manage to get hold of it do find a way to send it across.
of all the movies mentioned here, I have only seen Jaane Bhi Dho Yaaro. clean comedy movie. how can we forget that mahabharatha scene :-)
