Amar Akbar Anthony Movie Review

Amar Akbar Anthony Movie Review

Release Date: Friday 16th November 2018

Cast: Ravi Teja, Ileana, Sunil, Vennala Kishore, Satya, Ravi Prakash, Tarun Arora, Aditya Menon, Abhimamyu Singh, Vikramjit, Rajveer Singh, Shiyaji Shinde, Subhalekha Sudhakar, Laya and others


Amar and Aishu are childhood friends in New York. Their parents are killed by a gang. Amar in his teens kills the guy who attacks Aishu and serves prison for 14 years.

Aishu takes new identity as Pooja. Amar acts like Akbar sometimes, and Anthony the other times. Why Still, he is trying to take revenge and search for his missing childhood friend Aishu.

Though both Aishu aka Pooja and Amar meet and like each other, they are not aware not of their true identities.

Rest of the movie is all about how they reveal their identity and how Amar takes revenge


After delivering three flops in a row, director Sreenu Vaitla has tried to tell a story that would appeal to todays audiences. He has selected a point of a guy suffering from dissociative identity disorder aka split personality.

The story line (provided by new writer Vamsi Rajesh) has enough material but the screenplay has turned erratic.

There is too much of build up has given to heros dissociative identity disorder but the director has used more to generate comedy rather than using it for revenge theme.

Sreenu Vaitla in his typical style focuses on silly and outdated spoof material just after 20 minutes into the movie and it drags on and on.

The spoof is on Telugu associations in America. He names the association WATA (Whole Andhra Telangana Association) and brings in the characters like Ravi Tejas Akbar role, Vennela Kishore, Srinivasa Reddy, Jaya Prakash Reddy and Sathya. This thread has made the film a mess.

The moment Vaitla introduces spoof material, it is clear that the novel point he has chosen becomes superficial.

The regular sequences like Vennela Kishore falling for Ileana and she beating him, Sathya imitating KA Paul (a well known evangelist in Andhra) and Ravi Teja changing his three avatars in comic way prolong the main point and become a torture to watch.

By the time crux of the story is revealed, half of the theater would fall asleep. Even if you wake up suddenly, the story will remain at the same point, because it never proceeds further until the climax.

There is a character of FBI officer played by Abhimanyu Singh. He acts more like a beat constable in Ameerpet than a FBI officer in America. He beats Vennela Kishore, JP, Sathya and Srinivasa Reddy with a stick in FBI interrogation room. What was Sreenu Vaitla thinking He has insulted the intelligence of audience.

The films screenplay is a huge mess. Amar Akbar Anthony is neither an entertainer nor it is a revenge drama. It is nothing but a torment for audiences.

Except Ileanas beauty and lavish production values (entire film is set in USA), nothing is exciting in the film.

Overall, it is another mediocre film from the stable of Sreenu Vaitla. Ravi Tejas Anthony character says this line: I am strong, you are strong, and we are all strong. Relax. But to watch this, you need to be very strong.
