Fan favourite from DIFF’s 14th edition comes to VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates, every day from March 15 – 28

Dubai, 13 March, 2018: DIFF’s independent cinema showcase, DIFF365@VOX Cinemas powered by Du, continues to bring heartwarming tales for the whole family this time with family drama ‘5 Rupya’ (5 Rupees).

Directed by celebrated Indian filmmaker Piyush Chandrakant Panjuani and starring beloved prolific actress Shabana Azmi, ‘5 Rupya’ (5 Rupees) is set in a small village at the foothills of the Himalayas. Ameena (Azmi), a poor woman, lives with her seven-year-old grandchild Hamid, whom she raised after his parents passed away in an accident. This time together forms a close bond between the two, and Ameena becomes attached to him.

On the last day of Ramadan, Hamid is thrilled to break his final fast to celebrate Eid, and receive an Eidi of five rupees, which his grandmother had saved for him. When Hamid and the money go missing, however, the story takes a different turn. Unaware of Hamid’s pure and innocent intentions, Ameena furiously awaits his return.

‘5 Rupya’ (5 Rupees) premiered to packed audiences at the 14th Dubai International Film Festival and will give fans a second chance to experience the touching film at the DIFF 365@VOX dedicated theatre (cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, running from March 15 – 28, 2018.

Tickets are available now online at the VOX website and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.
