Anth is a 1994 Bollywood action film directed by Sanjay Khanna and featuring Suniel Shetty, Somy Ali, and Paresh Rawal in lead roles. The plot revolves around a young man named Vijay (Suniel Shetty) who is raised by a gangster after being orphaned at a young age. Vijay grows up to become a hitman for the gangster and begins to question his own morality when he falls in love with a social worker named Preeti (Somy Ali). To complicate matters, Preeti is the sister of a police officer who is determined to bring the gangster and his henchmen to justice.

The film opens with a bang as we are introduced to Vijay's character, who is shown as a ruthless killer. The first half of the movie is a montage of action scenes where Vijay carries out assassinations for his boss. As the movie progresses, we get to know more about Vijay's character and his inner turmoil. We see that he is not entirely comfortable with his line of work and has a sense of loyalty towards the gangster who raised him. He is torn between his love for Preeti and his duty to his boss.

As Vijay struggles with his conscience, we are introduced to the film's villain, Jacob (Paresh Rawal). Jacob is a rival gangster who wants to take over the city and is constantly at odds with Vijay's boss. Their rivalry forms the crux of the second half of the movie as the stakes are raised and the action intensifies.

What sets Anth apart from other Bollywood action movies is its attempt to delve deeper into the emotional lives of its characters. Vijay's character arc is particularly well-developed as we see him grapple with his allegiances and his conscience. Somy Ali's character is also a departure from the stereotypical Bollywood heroine. She is strong-willed and independent, and her social work provides an interesting contrast to Vijay's violent world.

The film's soundtrack is another highlight, featuring popular songs like "Saansein Teri Chalti Rahe" and "Yaar Mera Pyaar Mera" that are still popular with Bollywood fans. The action scenes are well choreographed, and Suniel Shetty is convincing as the tough guy with a heart of gold.

Overall, Anth is a worthy addition to the Bollywood action genre. Its attempt to flesh out its characters and add depth to its storyline sets it apart from the usual formulaic Bollywood movies. Fans of the genre will enjoy the thrilling action and emotionally charged performances by the talented cast.

Anth is a 1994 drama with a runtime of 2 hours and 16 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
