"Amar Akbar Anthony", which is the debut directorial of Nadhirshah, is set to hit theatres on Friday, 16 October.

The multi-starrer movie, which will have Prithviraj, Indrajith and Jayasurya in the lead roles, has already created hype among fans and filmbuffs.

Here are 5 reasons why 'Amar Akbar Anthony' is worth watching:

  • Prithviraj, Indrajith and Jayasurya

The last time the trio of Prithviraj, Indrajith and Jayasurya came together, Malayalam cinema was gifted with one of the highest grossing campus-based films, "Classmates".

The three actors also share a great bond off-screen as well. Whether "Amar Akbar Anthony" can repeat the success of "Classmates" in Kerala box office is something one needs to wait and watch.

  • Nadhirshah directorial

Nadhirshah, who has already proved his talent in acting, mimicry, parody and many other fields in the entertainment world, is not a new face in Malayalam movie industry.

"Amar Akbar Anthony" is one of the much awaited films of the year as it is Nadhirshah's first attempt to direct a film.

  • Comedy Thriller

Prithviraj, Indrajith and Jayasurya have performed remarkably well in their individual comedy roles and hence the combination of the trio in a comedy thriller like "Amar Akbar Anthony" is worth a watch.

  • Music and Background Score

The background score was done by National Award winner Bijibal. The music is composed by director Nadhirshah, while the lyrics are written by Santhosh Varma, Bappu Vavaad and Nadhirshah.

The first song, "Premamennal", which is sung by Prithviraj, Indrajith, Jayasurya and Kalabhavan Shajon, has already become a fan favourite.

  • Trailer, Teaser and Promo Hype

The hype created by the trailer, teaser and songs have already raised the expectations among fans and film-goers.

The trailer of "Amar Akbar Anthony", which was released on 5 October, had garnered about two lakh views in just two days.
