Storyline

Riya lives a middle-classed lifestyle in Mumbai and works as an Assistant Director for a movie producer, Bharucha. After the passing of her mother, she is consoled by a young man, Anthony Gonsalves, in the church graveyard. He introduces himself as the son of Jeffrey, who passed away during 1986, and works as a waiter in Jimmy's Pub, Bandra and wants to be a Bollywood actor. Thereafter she meets him again in the studios when he comes to audition for the part of Mark Anthony in a re-make of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'. Both are attracted to each other and continue to meet. Little does Riya know that Anthony has lied to her, as he never had a father by the name of Jeffrey, and the real person who brought him up is a gangster and killer, Sikander, who is now a suspect in the sudden disappearance of Police Inspector Gupta.

This Anthony has a long way to go!
18 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

E Niwas's 'My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves' is average entertainer, which tanked at the box office. The film is just about okay.

Performance Wise: Nikhil Diwedi makes a pretty good debut. He's good and surely has a future in Bollywood. Amrita Rao gets a which role offers her nothing. Mithunda is superb as the father. Anupam Kher is classy. Pawan Malhotra is terrific. Mukesh Tiwari and Dayashankar Pandey are good. Javed Shiekh needs a lot of grooming. Saurabh Shukla is first-rate. Anil Kapoor in a cameo appearance in energetic, Priyanka Chopra looks hot in a cameo too.

'My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves' is a strictly one-time watch.
