AMAL (Canada / India)

Auto rickshaw driver Amal is content with the small but vital role

he serves—driving customers around New Delhi as quickly and

safely as possible. But his sense of duty is tested by an eccentric,

aging billionaire, who, moved by Amal's humility, bequeaths him

his entire estate before passing away. With only one month to discover

and claim the inheritance, Amal's struggles with duty and

wealth are threatened by all those around him—from a young

injured beggar girl and a lovely store merchant, to the danger

of the old man's upper-caste friends and siblings, all seeking to

claim their share of the riches. Starring Rupinder Nagra as Amal,

AMAL is directed for the screen by Richie Mehta.


Running Time: 101 Minutes • Rated: PG


AMAL is in Hindi with English Subtitles.
