Storyline

Autistic Indraneel Thakur, who works for a living as a waiter in a Café in India, has a body of a grown man and mind of a seven year old. One day while closing the café, a young woman named Maya Trivedi, asks for his assistance as she has missed the last bus. Indraneel assists her, takes her home, finds out that she is pregnant, helps her give birth, agrees to take care of the child, Gungun, and thereafter Maya leaves, never to return. Years later, Gungun has grown up, attends school, and believes that Indraneel is her dad. Then their world is changed upside down when Maya's dad, Dayanath Trivedi, arrives from London, Britain, to take custody of his grandchild, if necessary through the courts. Indraneel refuses to part with Gungun, and as a result a case is filed in Court. The Judge initially hears this case, finds Indraneel incompetent to be a responsible father and tentatively puts Gungun in the Court's custody. Now a date is set when Indraneel must take up the gargantuan task of ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

I am Sam and I am Sad
5 May 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Just when I thought I can feel an inkling of pride with the Indian movie scene (3 Deewarein, Swades, Lakshya), it raises it ever present ugly head of "inspiration". The plot and the characters neatly "borrowed" and given a Bollywood Jhatka of usual romantic interest, I am Sam is remade, rehashed and proper FUBSR (fouled up but still recognizable) and Indianised for the huge audience of illiterate masses and sub-literate asses.

There isn't much need to delve into the story, people looking forward to this movie (groan) can just scoop up some reviews from the aforementioned Holllywood page here on IMDb and be well prepared to compare Ajay Devgan and Sean Penn, at least that will entertain you for the duration of the movie. Oh, and Ms. Sen says it's her best performance yet, now we know how good she actually is then ;).

I hope someday somebody sues Bollywood.
