Have a look at the newspapers and you are bound to see some news or the other related to terrorism. Hindustan is another one of those movies depicting the realities and brutalities of terrorism.
Chandu (10) and Harini (8) are two very smart kids. On Chandu's birthday, his watchman, Salim, secretly places a box containing a remote controlled helicopter among the other gifts. A few days later, Salim, along with six other terrorists, takes control of the house. The gang then attaches a bomb to the helicopter and then uses the home minister's car for the landing. Puneet Issar is sent to investigate the matter.
Chandu and Harini return from their excursion, only to find that their parents and grand-parents have been taken in by the CBI for questioning.
In an attempt to identify and capture Salim in a masjid, Chandu and Harini are taken by the terrorists. Chandu informs his friend through email about the terrorists' plans to start a communal riot by placing bombs at a temple and a masjid. The CBI receives the information, and two terrorists die in the resulting encounter. Finally, the group of terrorists is reduced to three, and in a very sentimental climax, the movie ends with the reformation of the terrorists.
Haribabu has handled the subject of terrorism quite well, but the audience is exposed to some cumbersome lectures on the subject of patriotism. He has done justice to the picturisation of the terrorists' side of the story. The two kids act well, and apart from these two, none of the other actors have a major role to play. The audience is spared the trauma of sitting through needless songs.
