I AM- The Inner I inside
Duration- 1 Hour 50 minutes
I AM deals with four lives namely Omar, Abhimanyu, Megha and Afia and their grievances surrounding their fears in their respective lives. The four separate stories are moulded differently by the director Onir leading the film to a new verge of realism.
The film begins with Afia (Nandita Das), who wants a baby from his husband but then she comes to know that her husband has cheated her and has extramarital relationship with a girl of whom he is going to be a father off. Afia then decides to be a mother of her own through IVF method. She searches for a man who would be suitable to donate his sperm in order to give birth to a baby. She feared that the nature of the donor may affect the behaviour of the child in future and so she wants to check the details of the donor well before she get fertilised.
The second story deals with Megha (Juhi Chawla), who is a daughter of Kashmiri Pundit who left the valley during the uproar and turmoil in the hills. She blames the people around her native place in Kashmir for her fate which forced her to flee to Mumbai leaving Srinagar. Her story reveals the situation of the Kashmiri Pundits still prevailed at the valley and the lives of people under threat and menace.
Following the story of Megha there comes another story which dealt with child sex abuse and fear surrounding it. Abhimanyu ( Sanjay Suri), is a film director who is a FTII pass out and is successful in life. But there is something that haunts him throughout his life. It’s the past that he had experienced with his step father Vinay (Anurag Kashyap). The molestation and abuse that Abhimanyu has experienced throughout his childhood had changed his life dramatically and he carries the pain inside him in his life.
The fourth and the last story deals with Omar (Arjun Mathur) and Jai (Rahul Bose) who incidentally one night get cosy with each other on Jai’s car. They suddenly got caught by a policeman and harassed. Jai, a successful businessman, was forced to give a huge sum to the policeman in order to leave them. Jai, later come to know that Omar has cheated him using his sexual orientation.
All the four stories have one thing in common, and that these stories dealt with the fear associated with each person in their lives. Though the stories are not depicted through the hyperlink format it has a connection with each other through one or more characters connecting links in the stories.
Nandita Das, Purab Kohli and Sanjay Suri are the one who have done the best job in the film in terms of acting. Anurag Kashyap as actor has stolen the limelight with very limited screen space with quality acting of a step father who sexually abuses his child. Rahul Bose and his simplicity adds brilliance towards the end of the film.
Though the stories are not too long yet they are loosely bounded with each other. Screenplay by Onir and Urmi Juvekar is not at par with the previous films of Onir. But the film scores really high on the direction department. The cinematography has been excellent throughout the film.
The music of Amit Trivedi is soothing to ears and the lyrics of the songs are quite in sync with the story and narration of the film giving the film an edge.
The film has been a critical success worldwide bagging many national and international awards till now. The film is also an official selection in the Cannes Film Festival this year proving the mantle of the director and the actors associated with the film. It has also bagged the National Award for Best Film in the year 2012.
This is really a high time to watch the film now as this has been qualified for the coveted Cannes Festival and thus making its ground stiffer internationally.
