ADITYO ARYAN on FILM

Tehelka - - MASTER TAKES -

Lit­tle Ter­ror­ist by Ashvin Kumar is about a Pak­istani boy who crosses the bor­der and comes to In­dia to get his ball. Spot­ted by the In­dian army he takes shel­ter in a Hindu Brah­min’s house. The sim­ple treat­ment of this movie sets an ex­am­ple for a lot of short film­mak­ers to ex­per­i­ment with bold sub­jects. The land­mine scene where the child crosses the bor­der to get his ball is breath­tak­ing. The big­gest chal­lenge for short films is to cre­ate an im­pact in 10 to 15 min­utes and the movie man­ages to do so beau­ti­fully.
