The story of Inam is set in the last weeks of the Sri Lankan civil war. Well, the director does not touch the war subject, but talks about people caught up in such a hazardous and hapless situation.
Verdict : Inam is heart-wrenching story and the director makes us see the film through his perspective.
Films on the Sri Lankan Tamils and their issues have been hitting the screen at regular intervals.
The film opens with Arvind Swamy’s voice which is doing a routine investigation of Rajni (Sugandha Ram) in a refugee camp and Inam goes into a flashback mode tracking a tumultuous journey of people affected by political strife.
Verdict: A disturbing tale, brilliantly captured.
Inam starts off with an enquiry being made by an Indian officer on a Srilankan Tamil refugee Rajni (Sugandha Ram). The story uncovers in the narration of Rajni on what happened to her during the last stages of war in Srilanka.
Verdict: Barring a few shortcomings Inam ends up as a much needed effort to uncover the truth on what happened to a Tamizh 'inam' (ethnicity) in the name of war.
