a message oriented film which shows the harsh realities existing in the secular state of India
7 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I AM was a hard-hitting story filled with compassion, sympathy and trauma. It checks the reality that is prevalent in the society we live in today.

I AM revolves around story of 4 protagonist who lives cross each other in different parts of India. It tells you about each individual dealing with issues and dilemma of life and fighting to survive in the unsympathetic world.

Directed by Onir ( My brother.. Nikhil) takes the courage to divulge into a story which has never been witnessed before on Indian Celluloid. He takes you to the insight of each individual's life who have encountered mental or physical trauma in their past and how are they dealing with them. The story of Afia in Calcutta portrays the life of a common woman being rejected by her husband gives you a sympathetic feelings , story of consequences faced by Megha in her pass is jittery , childhood mental torture of Omar by his step-father is the most disturbing of all and finally the betrayal story of Abhimanyu is shocking . Onir had made in term of direction and has right ingredients to make it big. Screenplay is crispy. Cinematography is ordinary and pale. Music is OK . Dialogues are witty. It is the performances by the lead star cast which makes it worth watching. I would point out that all the leadings actors have done job appropriately.

Overall , a message oriented film which shows the harsh realities existing in the secular state of India. Good 3.5 /5
