Storyline

Amar, Akbar & Tony follows the lives and loves of three childhood friends through twists and turns as the characters face sudden and unforeseen changes to their idealistic and trouble-free young lives. With hilarious and sometimes tragic consequences, the brotherly bond shared by the trio is forced to come to terms with some unexpected challenges. Interracial marriage, near fatal accidents and stints in prison will test old friendships and family values. A coming of age comedy drama showing the absurdities of life can also be the most amusing. Written by Anonymous

Terrible, terrible film- possibly the worst I've ever seen
12 May 2015 | by timusathem28See all my reviews

Firstly the screen writing: The film had no coherent storyline, jumping from comedy to tragedy to drama without any transitions and any attempt at laying the character backgrounds. I was left confused at the end: what was the film trying to show? The direction was mediocre, not a single scene stands out, whereas a few scenes stand out as failed attempts to inject some style into the otherwise turgid proceedings. SOme key scenes were very very badly done. In the scene when one of the protagonists of the film is reunited with his friend after a tragic few years, the director took the easy way out and completely ignored the potential to finally develop the characters.

The acting was a range- the one guy who stood out for me was Tony, his comedic timing and delivery was the saving grace. Karen David was the other extreme, very bad. The rest of the cast were passable to good.

But they are not the ones who let this cringe-worthy attempt at entertainment down- the blame must lie squarely with the director. No vision, no character development, just a hotchpotch of stereotypes shamelessly vomited under the banner of "feelgood". Sadly, this was as feel-sick as it gets.
