Amar Akbar Antony - Star Performance
The usually energetic Raviteja looks quite pale in this film. Because of the characterization, he has to appear passive throught the film – which disappoints his fans. Ileana is not attractive anymore as heroine and a misfit for Aishu / Pooja role. Sayaji Shinde got a good lengthy role in this film. There are numerous villains in this film – not much to rave about them though.
Amar Akbar Antony - Technical Team
Music by Thaman is very disappointing as not one song clicks but his background score was neat. Production values by Mythri Movies is top notch as they have spent a lot to make the film look rich. Production design was neat and so were the lyrics. Dialogues were funny in many areas and especially those written for Sunil and Vennela Kishore were good. Coming to the director Sreenu Vaitla, he has got things wrong in a big way. Right from Aagadu, his comic sense and grip on the script have gone for a toss as he has been narrating his stories in a disappointing manner. Same is the case this film as well as Vaitla has made things go haywire after the first ten minutes. What he generates is irritation in the name of entertainment.
Amar Akbar Antony - Analysis
On the whole Amar Akbar Anthony is yet another disappointment from the hands of Sreenu Vaitla. The star director gets it all wrong as the film is a logicless revenge drama which falls flat in many ways. There are a few comic moments which might click with the mass audience but on the whole, this film fails to reach the expectations completely and has nothing great to boast about.
