  • 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."

  • 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.

    August 8, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Most of the actors invest their characters with enough warmth to render them fully human.

    August 8, 2008 | Rating: 3/4
  • A hypnotic mix of old home footage, archival pulls and shadowy portraiture, Amal fixes its gaze on an arresting protagonist whose complex transformation alternates between foreground and background for her country's volatile surroundings.

    A hidden gem. Amal is a fairy tale of the working poor in India that concludes with a moral of true happiness.
