Amar Akbar and Tony

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A feel good comedy romance.

The title is a sly, engaging take-off on a 1977 Bollywood lost and found comedy . The film made a strong, good-humourd plea for India’s divided people to integrate when it came to the caste, class and social divide. In his debut film, Atul Malhotra transposes that theme to the Indian diaspora. Amusing, ironic and harsh in turns, the film observes the rigid social taboos that so affect and distort the young and the families they interact with. It does so through three childhood friends looking for love in multicultural London. Interracial romance, violence, sexuality, family, love and loss is the brotherly bond shared by the trio, Amar Akbar & Tony, over ten years as they deal with the absurdities of life..
