Movie Info

Released after censorship restrictions were lifted by a more liberal Indian government, Amar Akbar Anthony indulged audiences in a story with loose morals and visual excitement. The Chinese box of a narrative is essentially a comedy of errors concerning three brothers, Amar, Akbar, and Anthony. Abandoned in a park by their father, the three are raised separately and without knowledge of each other. By coincidence they all find themselves giving blood to a woman in a hospital and events stemming from this encounter bring them together. All three meet women who they fall in love with, but when their father, who unbeknownst to them has become a successful smuggler, kidnaps one of the women, all three become implicated in the struggle for her release. At the end of the film, the identities of the three are revealed, the police reveal that the smuggler is their father, and they manage to defeat a variety of criminal elements. The film closes with the brothers reunited, driving off into the sunset with their women.

Is there a movie outside shows christians,muslims & other minorities in a positive light, even giving? them top billing as this movie has done? Just one of the Funniest Classics, I enjoyed every bit of it. Dialogues written by my Fav writer:: KADER KHAN. The Scene after the song "My name is Anthony Gonzales" is just priceless Funny.

There just simply are not enough movies in the world that are this delightfully absurd. Three brothers are separated as children through a series of bizarre cicumstances and end up being raised as a Hindu, a Muslim, and a Christian. However, a series of even more surreal circumstances brings them back together and forces them to face off against a nefarious crime lord. You simply cannot watch this film and not be wildly entertained. The entire cast is great, but Amitabh Bachchan basically steals the show, particularly with his song, "My name is Anthony Gonsalves," which is one of of the wackiest musical numbers ever filmed.
