About the film:

AMAL viscerally conveys the feel of working-class Delhi. Nuanced performances from some of India‘s most revered and beloved performers, including Seema Biswas (WATER), Shah (MONSOON WEDDING), Roshan Seth (SUCH A LONG JOURNEY) and Koel Purie (WHITE NOISE) enhance the film‘s authenticity and immediacy. The life-affirming story evokes lingering vestiges of the caste system and examines a family in which wealth creates nothing but the hunger for more. At the end of his life, the patriarch holds up a mirror to the world he inhabited as a tycoon but departed as an ascetic.
