Watch this fun, feel good flick on demand now!
One of our favourite films of the year is soon-to-be available to download on demand and watch again - hooray! The epic Brit-flick rom-com that is Amar Akbar & Tony brightened up our Spring with its cute characters, (Tony), gorgeous cast (including the stunning Manrina), awesome soundtrack (courtesy of Rishi Rich), celebrity appearances (Shide Boss), brilliant storyline (you can't go wrong with a tale of friendship about three lads), cultural diversity (the first time there's been a turbanned Sikh character in the lead role in a British movie), hilarious moments (Nina Wadia in a skin tight dominatrix outfit) and for its general, all round entertainment value.
The movie had an incredible five week run in UK cinemas, holding its own against blockbusters such as Avengers: Age of Ultron and Fast & Furious 7, and has been making waves on the international festival circuit. Described as an indie flick '…with both brains and heart' (Radio Times), this enjoyable coming of age tale is fun yet inspirational, with a meaningful message.
This unique film marries the storytelling styles of UK independent cinema with that of the Bollywood narrative, to bring a wonderful insight into the multicultural Britain of today as a Sikh (Amar), a Muslim (Akbar) and an Irish Catholic (Tony) come of age, cause chaos and fall in love in contemporary London.
The cast boasts a host of familiar faces along with some of the hottest new talent in the UK including Meera Syal, Nina Wadia, Karen David (ABC’s Galavant), Laura Aikman (Bluestone 42), Martin Delaney (Zero Dark Thirty), Rez Kempton (Mystic Masseur), Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones), Mark Moraghan (Allies) and Goldy Notay (Sex and the City 2).
Amar Akbar & Tony is released on VOD on 2nd November and will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Blinkbox, Virgin Media Cable, Virgin Media Online Movies, Talk Talk Cable, Eircom Cable and Google Play.
