What are people saying?

  • Holyphool's rating of the film I Am Kalam

    This beautiful, magical, and emotional independant Indian film is reminiscent of Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak. Nila Madhab Panda takes a very serious subject (the education of children and the vast gulf between rich and poor) and treats it with such good humour, and cinematic wonderment. Exqusitely shot in Rajasthan, a wonderful film for children. Great performances from all, please watch this film.
