Anthony Yaar? (English: Who is Anthony?) is a 2009 Tamil language film starring Shaam and Mallika Kapoor in the lead roles.[1]


Anthony (Shaam) is an orphan who grows up in a church situated in a coastal village near Tuticorin. The local priest (Rajesh) is his benefactor. Anthony is loving and caring towards the local fishermen and their families who are being exploited by the rowdy Michael (Lal).



During the development stages of the film, when the cast was being decided, Shaam went to visit actor Vadivelu to enquire about his availability and to sign him on to play a role in the film. Vadivelu refused to be a part of the film and subsequently verbally insulted Shaam, prompting the actor to lodge a complaint with the Nadigar Sangam about Vadivelu's conduct.[2][3]
