Sometimes I think, films from India that people like, don't always work when you are English and have to read subtitles, I feel like most are reviewed by Indian people. This one is pure and sends a very good message, I enjoyed very much, I have no witty critiques, just the truth.

Una historia de mototaxi, situada en Nueva Delhi,de minimas pretensiones y mucho que ver en nombre de la curiosidad.

Human kindness and goodness is priceless, indeed. Netflix pick of the year.

Is it corny if I say it's "heart-warming"? It is, I know, using a term like that is gross. But, the film is lovely. Our hero kept me on his every move with his care, generosity or doggedness. What a job for a first time feature from Mehta.

Saw this gem in 2008 at Banff festival. Beautiful philosophical tale. The kind of movie you will remember long after it's over.

Mehta in his feature film directorial debut shows a great maturity in bringing this compelling and touching story to life and in juxtaposing the harsh realities of the Indian working class with the sinister machinations of the rich, whilst also carrying the message that ignorance really is bliss which might frustrate some viewers particularly in its ending. Nevertheless, this is a great drama of human nature and human warmth, touching and gripping from start to end.

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

Since Amal won best film at the MIAAC Film Festival in New York over Slumdog is logical to make the conclusion that Amal is THE BEST FILM OF THE YEAR!!!

In all seriousness, I enjoyed Amal better than Slumdog as it had better acting by the lead, and the story had more subtle depth....

Really enjoyed it. Not much I say won't give away the story. Just watch it. It's heartwarming and teaches you that everything happens for a reason.

Absolutely beautiful; an inspiring message, well developed characters, suspenseful plot, an honest portrayal of both extremes of Indian life, and credit to the working poor.
