Sixth Happiness
Disabled activist Firdaus Kanga scripted this autobiographical British drama by adapting his novel, Trying to Grow. Born in 1962 with brittle bone disease, Brit Kotwal (Kanga) grows up with the support of his middle-class Bombay family, but adulthood brings a series of suicides, accidents, and other disappointments. Kanga played the role of the central autobiographical character at various ages, beginning at age eight. Shown at the 1997 Mill Valley and London film festivals. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What could easily have been a maudlin exercise...is lightened throughout by a highly observant comic take on this eccentric, quick-witted family and their even more colorful neighbors."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
