Synopsis by Nathan Southern

E. Niwas's zany Bollywood crime comedy My Name is Anthony Gonsalves concerns the title character, an orphan bereft of his parents at a tender age and pulled from the Mumbai streets by the local gangster Sikander, who becomes his guardian. As an adult, Anthony inevitably ends up in the middle of criminal activity even as he frequently turns to a religious figure, Father Braganza, for counsel and guidance. Anthony's overarching dream as an adult is to establish himself as the hot new Bollywood movie idol and marry the gorgeous Riya in the process, but events take a most unpleasant turn when Anthony accidentally catches a glimpse of a gang murder, and his longtime friend Michael decides to inform Inspector Khan of Anthony's "inside" knowledge.
