Storyline

A ex-convict must flee his mob boss, leaving his family to fend for themselves. His wife goes blind and his children are abandoned. They are adopted by a Hindu policeman, a Muslim tailor, and a Catholic priest. The Hindu-raised son becomes a policeman in his turn; his Muslim-raised brother becomes a singer; and the last son, played by Amitabh, becomes a happy-go-lucky Catholic who lives on the edge of the law. The boys meet again and their lives become entangled in an incredible plot full of unlikely coincidences and furious action sequences interspersed with songs. In the end, the grieving mother recovers her sight, the evil mob boss is punished, and the family is at last re-united. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Amar, Akbar, Anthony is about 3 brothers who are left by their Mum with their Dad and they all get separated while they are children and at the end the family find each other.
1 October 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Amitabh Bachchan is a fantastic actor. Him and Sharukh Khan are known as the Bollywood kings. Nearly every film that Amitabh Bachchan comes in I give it either 9 out of 10, or 10 out of 10 like Naseeb, Coolie, Amar, Akbar, Anthony, Mard and a lot of other films. Amar, Akbar, Anthony is about 3 brothers who are left by their Mum with their Dad and they all get separated while they are children. Amar is found by a Indian and is grown to be an Indian.

Akbar is found by a Muslim and is grown to be a Muslim.

Anthony is found by a Christian and is grown to be a Christian and at the end the family including the mother all find each other.

I loved the storyline and the fighting too.
