The film I Am Kalam has received critical acclaim and has been doing reasonably well at the box office, particularly the multiplex circuit.
A strong lobby is building up to nominate the film I Am Kalam as India’s official entry for the Acedemy Awards as critics and cine buffs feel that the film has a certain dignity in line with World cinema. The film is being considered as a path breaking film like Taare Zameen Par, Udaan and Rang De Basanti.
I Am Kalam is directed by Nila Madhab Panda and the film revolves around Chhotu, a poor Rajasthani boy, who is inspired by the life of former President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam, and develops a strong desire to learn to read. Harsh Mayar, a Delhi slum boy who played Chhotu, has won the hearts of the audience with his performance.
