British comedy Amar, Akbar and Tony

British comedy Amar, Akbar and Tony

As I mentioned in the show last week, I’ve been doing a stack of interviews recently, and as two of them were from actors in the same movie, I though the Geektowners might like an extra show this week (the normal Geektown Radio will be out on Tuesday as usual). :)

Britain has been crying out for a film that truly reflects the society we live in; just when many have become disillusioned with the lack diversity in film, along comes the British Comedy Amar Akbar and Tony. Rez Kempton (Amar) and Martin Delaney (Tony) play two Londoners who come from different communities and join together in friendship sharing life’s ups and down along the way.

A Sikh, a Muslim and an Irish Catholic take stock of their lives in contemporary London in Atul Malhotra’s coming of age romantic comedy. The 1970’s Bollywood classic ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, about three brothers separated by circumstance, has inspired the title of this British film about three friends driven apart by circumstance. The film explores the predicaments that face its lead trio – Amar (Rez Kempton) is a Sikh whose promising career gets derailed, Tony (Martin Delaney) is in love with the wrong woman, while Akbar (Sam Vincenti) is an ambitious charmer with the gift of the gab. Despite its Indian-origin characters, the 93-minute movie is a serio-comic exploration of ambition being thwarted by external factors. The characters might be Asian, but they identifiably belong to the multicultural Britain of the present, and their problems could be those of any set of young people anywhere in the world.

This British independent film Amar Akbar & Tony‘s cast offers a mix of familiar faces and some of the coolest up and coming talent in the UK including Karen David (ABC’s Galavant), Laura Aikman (Waterloo Road), Goldy Notay (Sex in the City II), Ace Bhatti (Eastenders), Mark Moraghan (Holby City), Tanveer Ghani (Trial and Retribution), Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me) and Nina Wadia (Eastenders)

Martin is no stranger to TV and has an impressive list of credits to his name, including starring in Family Affairs for 3 years, New Zealand’s Shortland Street, Casualty, Robin Hood, the BAFTA winning comedy Him & Her and Two Pints of Lager. On the big screen Martin has enjoyed roles in Flags of Our Fathers, directed by Clint Eastwood, the Oscar winning Zero Dark Thirty and more. Now he is filming the Bonded by Blood 2 and is about to release his directorial debut Queens Mile. Martin has also just been cast in the new Hollywood feature Now You See Me 2 alongside Dave Franco and Daniel Radcliffe.

Rez has an equally commendable acting portfolio, including Merchant Ivory’s THE MYSTIC MASSEUR, BBC’s Spooks, BAFTA winner Bart Layton’s Banged Up Abroad, John Sullivan’s Roger Roger, Lee Evans’ So What Now? and CH4’s critically acclaimed Adha Cup. His film career has included award-winning films like Sharp Cookies, The Mel and Wendi House, UMAR and the hit family comedy Hari Puttar. Rez also stars in the upcoming movie Monsoon Tide.

Amar, Akbar and Tony is out in cinemas now.
