The two women are the main character's mother and his love interest. The mother dies pretty early on.

This movie only barely had more than one woman in it. I only even checked the first box, because the mother (whose name we never learn) has a line or two in the first half of the movie.

I don't think Jamal's mother counts because she is never named. There is, however, another female character named Mrs. Mackintosh, whom Jamal talks to on the phone.
