  • Shot with remarkable confidence and an understated eloquence.

    June 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/4
  • Less about finger-pointing than a plea for India to confront its past.

  • An admirable labor of love that stumbles dramatically but gets along on its sincere good intentions.

  • [Amu] is clearly a labor of love for the activist filmmaker, as she breaks all the traditional inhibitions of Bollywood to remind the world of -- and, for most of us, reveal for the first time -- one of the most shameful episodes in Indian history.

  • In Shonali Bose's tightly constructed debut feature (2005) a young Indian-American woman from Los Angeles returns to Delhi for the first time since childhood to visit her relatives.

Audience Reviews for Amu

  • Feb 29, 2008
    An intriguing movie that follows a young woman's journey into discovering the mystery about her past. With a new friend in tow, Kabir helps Kaju try to discover the truth about the range of secrets that her mother isn't telling her. Her search leads to a shocking realization about her true identity and those she has long forgotten about. Konkona Sen Sharma, Ankur Khanna, Brinda Karat, Choiti Ghosh, and Yashpal Sharma stars. Worth seeing!!
