About the Movie
Amal is an emotionally evocative story about an auto-rickshaw driver in New Delhi (Amal) who is content with his small, but vital role in life. One day he drives an eccentric billionaire (G.K. Jayaram) who, disguised as a vagabond, is searching the streets for the last morsel of humanity and someone he can leave all his money to, and Amal’s life may change forever. Amal serves up a visual feast for audiences. Filmed on location in New Delhi, India, this modern day fable asks the important question of what success means to each individual and ultimately reveals to audiences that the poorest of men are sometimes the richest..

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Moving ending won't satisfy all viewers, but shows admirable devotion to the film's notion that "Sometimes the poorest of men are the richest."
Fresh: There is nothing obvious about the story, which moves carefully and unpredictably, taking us through the streets of Delhi with a view from the back of a rickshaw.
Fresh: Most of the actors invest their characters with enough warmth to render them fully human.
