Amar Akbar Antony starring Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Praveen Babi, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi is a blockbuster entertainer about the union of three brothers separated from each other and their parents, avenging the man who separated them. This film set the trend of films based on the lost & found theme. A dozen odd films were made on this theme but no film succeeded the way Amar Akbar Anthony did. Pran and Nirupa Roy get separated accidentally with their three kids. The kids are adopted by persons of three different religions. One is a Hindu, the second a Muslim and the third a Christian. One boy grows up as Amar, the other as Akbar and the third as Anthony. Amar is a police officer, Akbar a tailor and Anthony, a good-for-nothing. After a series of trials and tribulations, the lost and disintegrated family re-unites. The film ends with their three sons getting married to their respective lovers.
