I had been waiting for this movie for well over a year. It was finally released on Feb 6th. The reason why I was waiting for this movie was because of the interesting title (“I am God”) and also because of the strong Aghori theme.
Bala – the director is the same person who directed movies like Sethu, Pithamagan etc. which have a strong undercurrent of poverty, death, blindness etc. This movie is no different ………but is a marked improvement over the earlier ones. Arya was the right choice for this movie and so was actress Pooja (a relative newbie to tinseltown). In fact Poonja deserves an award for it as her acting is brilliant.
I wasn’t disappointed at all and would rate the movie at 5 stars (I very rarely give 5 stars to any movie). A recurring message from this movie is of euthanasia ……’Death is a boon to those who cannot live and for whom living is very difficult’.
You shouldn’t miss this movie for anything. The stark realism of poverty and the world of beggars and aghoris is very striking.
