Richie Mehta Creates Modern Day Fable with Amal

amal.jpegSometimes, the poorest of men are the richest. So says the tagline of Richie Mehta’s latest film, Amal. Filmed in New Delhi and with an impressive cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Roshan Seth, Seema Biswas, Rupinder Nagra, Tanisha Chatterjee and Koel Purie, Amal has been described as a modern day fable, which attempts to seek the meaning of success, and how the meaning of success can change from person to person. Based on a short story by Richie Mehta and Shaun Mehta, and produced by David Miller and Steven Bray of Poormans Productions, Amal has been widely appreciated. After Deepa Mehta, Richie Mehta is only the second Canadian Indian director to unveil his first feature at the Toronto Film Festival. Mehta has been solidifying his role as a serious up-and-coming filmmaker for years, and been mentored by industry legends such as Wim Wenders, Shekhar Kapur and Brian DePalma. We had screened one of his excellent short films, All Roads Lead to Here at the NJISACF 2007, which had been appreciated by all of our viewers.
