Watch Again: Amar Akbar & Tony


The British Independent Comedy is Available to View on VOD from November 2

After an incredible 5 week run in UK cinemas, holding its own against blockbusters such as Avengers: Age of Ultron and Fast & Furious 7, both fans of the film and those that missed Brit-flick Amar Akbar & Tony now have the chance to catch it again! The independent British comedy receives its VOD release on 2nd November.  

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.

Amar Akbar & Tony offers a refreshing and original depiction of the Asian community onscreen, opening in April this year to rave reviews and jam packed screens. ‘The film delivers on all accounts’ and is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ (Robert K Stephen, Toronto)
