Little Soldiers is a Telugu children's movie released in February 1996, produced and directed by Gangaraju Gunnam, which won many awards, including the Andhra Pradesh state government Nandi award. The film contains children's songs penned by Sirivennela Sitaramasastri and music scored by Sri.


It is the story of two ill-behaved children who are orphaned in an accident and are forced to live with their new guardian, the strict disciplinarian and army man - their grandfather. They have never seen him before due to differences between their parents and the grandpa. They get to have a first hand experience of the reason for these differences.

In spite of the largely lugubrious plot, the movie itself is very light-hearted to a large extent, containing many moments of comedy. The children's performances are designed to draw laughs.

How the grandpa and the children eventually warm up to each other, and the various troubles that the cook and other family members go through trying to raise the children make for family-friendly entertainment.
