This is probably the second best-loved 70s Bollywood film (after Sholay). I personally don't care for Rishi's character, or the sight of Amitabh Bachchan in a cassock (impersonating a priest for plot reasons) schmoozing his love interest, or almost anything to do with Nirupa Roy, but the best parts of this movie-Pran getting revenge on his evil boss, longlost brothers Vinod Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan fighting, a drunken Amitabh putting iodine on his reflection in a mirror, "Anthony Gonsalves"-all these are really good. I much prefer "Parvarish" from the same director as a similarly themed movie with alot of the same cast that manages to keep the wackiness going more consistently, and the More Casual Fan found it less confusing than AAA as well. That being said, AAA is a tremendously influential movie with a great cast, some very fun scenes, and a solid if glib introduction to India's secularist/ecumenist approach to religion.
