My Name is Anthony Gonsalves Bollywood Movie Review

Though the name sounds intriguing, it does not have much to offer. 'My Name is Anthony Gonsalves' talks about Anthony Gonsalves (Nikhil Dwivedi) who believes in making it big in life as a film star but currently is working as a bartender in Jimmy's pub in Mumbai. The pub is the den for the gangster trio Sikander (Pawan Malhotra) Riyaz ( Dayashanker Pandey) Maqsood (Mukesh Tiwari) who use this as a frontal face for their illegal activities. Sikander is more like a godfather to Anthony. Trouble sets in when Anthony witnesses a ghastly crime of murder committed by the gang and the case is being investigated by Inspector Khan, an honest and a tough cop who strongly believes that Anthony knows the truth. From then on, he starts pursuing the trio and Anthony for bringing out justice. Anthony gets caught in turmoil as he is unable to choose between his dreams of becoming an actor or become a law abiding citizen by turning in Sikander, his protector. Added to this is the fact that Anthony is in love with Riya (Amrita Rao) who happens to be an assistant director in films. Whether Anthony fulfils his dream of becoming a star, are the accused caught and justice is done form the rest of the story.

My Name is Anthony Gonsalves Hindi Cinema Review

E Niwas who was keenly looking for a success with the film may have to try his luck next time since he has not been able to get the film to his caliber. Though the subject looks interesting and real, his presentation was alright but the narration went drifting from the main line several times. The scenes actually take the audience through a roller coaster ride whilst at one point, everything seems up and running and the next point there is nothing much to do. While music by Pritam has nothing much to offer, there is just one number worth humming.Cinematography and other technical areas were just about average. Nikhil as a debutante has actually done a remarkable job but then he needs to polish his dialogue delivery and expressions at few instances. Amrita Rao has been a sensation with her new and hot image for the film. The show stealer was Pawan Malhotra who befitted the role of a gangster with finesse along with some talented performance by Mukesh Tiwari and Dayashankar Pandey. Mithun Chakraborty shines with his brief performance as father Briganza while the item number by Hrishita Bhatt is okay. The other highlight is the cameo appearances by Anil Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.

My Name is Anthony Gonsalves Filem Review

A different subject actually well executed but has been let down badly by poor script and amateur editing. The first half of the film is aimless and there are several moments when the audience do not know what to do, while the second half gets interesting the climax becomes short and predictable which led to the lack of punch for the viewers to see it intently. The screenplay is bad. Though there is an impressive line up of talented stars and the genius hand of a director, the film does not have the strength to carry on.

Bharatstudent verdict: Hardly entertaining, it is a passing cloud...
