Based on Munshi Premchand’s classic Indian story ‘Idgah’, 5 RUPEES features a standout performance by multiple National Award-winning actress Shabana Azmi set against the breathtaking locales of the Kashmir valley. Ameena is a poor old lady, who lives in a tiny village in the foothills of the Himalayas, with her seven-year-old grandson Hamid. On the last day of Ramadan, Hamid looks forward to breaking his fast with an Eid celebration and receiving a 5-rupee coin, which Ameena has been saving up for. On the day, unexpected actions result in a misunderstanding that ultimately reveals the pure, deep love a grandson has for a grandmother.
