Synopsis by Brian Whitener
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.
