It's not a flawless film that will change the course of cinema but a relevant one, funded by more than 400 individuals, that has more on its mind than today's news.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
But despite the good intentions and solid performances, I Am works only in fits and spurts. The screenplay, co-written by Onir, Merle Kroeger and Urmi Juvekar, often feels clunky and unwieldy. There are flashbacks within flashbacks and songs, which only s
Anupama Chopra, NDTV 
The film is a compendium of four stories which have a common theme: the search and assertion of individual identity. Nandita Das is a single woman who wants to experience the joys of motherhood by artificial insemination.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
The film’s intent is undoubted – it aims at breaking shackles, at shocking people out of numbness, and telling them what’s going on around them when they’re not looking.

Sulekha Reviewer, Sulekha
'I Am' has travelled in film festivals for last many months and rightly so since at the core of it this movie has a shelf life beyond the theatrical release. Yes, it has seen a mainstream release for itself but then it is made strictly for the niche audience which can digest films that don't quite lend a comfortable outing and instead make you think along as the drama unfolds. The fact that the man at the hot seat, Onir, has kept the sensibility and the sensitivity of the narrative intact only makes 'I Am' a must watch for those looking at quality cinema that dares to tell different tales.

The characters in the film tackle the issues that exist in our so called modern Indian society. With I Am you are set on a journey, which will give you real life experience. It is like a slice of life being shown on screen.I Am - OmarOmar tells us a story

Four very interesting stories are told in a matter of two and a half hours. This concept is growing with the audience, and it definitely works in the era of brevity and conciseness. A must watch movie for almost everyone, right from film students to the a
