Arimathea I think it's fairly close to the present. Since Amal's mother gives her a cellphone to keep in touch with her family (although the phone is confiscated the first day she is in the Khan home) and her employer is surprised that Amal isn't using a phone, that indicates that this is set in or after 2000; cellphones became much more common around 2000-2005.
