Inam is a hard-hitting film set against the backdrop of civil strife. The film doesn't talk about the genocide in political angle rather about outsider's response to the crisis.
According to Santosh Sivan, Inam is about human aspirations and emotions shattered by the war, not about the politics behind it. S Karan, Sugandha Ram, Saritha, Karunas, Shyam Sundar and others are in the cast. It has Vishal Chandrashekhar and TS Suresh's editing.
Inam is based on an orphanage caught in the cross fire between LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam) and the Sri Lankan government. It looks at the war through the eyes of eight young orphans, including a teenager with Down's Syndrome. Santosh Sivan has helmed direction department along with handling cinematography.
Inam had a special screening recently and it was attended by critics and celebrities. People, who have seen the film, have given thumbs up to the brave attempt made by Santosh Sivan. Here, we are bringing you their one-line reviews. Find it on the slideshow...

#Inam child actor Karan steals the show. He literally carries the film on his shoulders and provides much needed intermittent humour.

#Inam a riveting war drama narrated from the perspective of a group of orphans. Visually extravagant and emotionally poignant.
