Amit Sahni Ki List Hindi Movie Reviews

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Amit Sahni Ki List, starring Vir Das, could’ve been a terrific romantic comedy, but it falls short on account of the writer’s conservative thinking. So much of it feels fresh and enjoyable despite sticking faithfully to formula, until it eventually goes down the same beaten bath in its last act, as if too scared to stick its neck out. For getting these bits just right, I’m going with two-and-half out of five for Amit Sahni Ki List. Go in with modest expectations and perhaps you won’t be disappointed.

AMIT SAHNI KI LIST lacks that required twist that would've set it apart from clichéd romantic sagas and movies of its ilk. That is one of the reasons why the graph of the film, all of a sudden, spirals downwards towards the middle of the second half. You know what the conclusion would be, but the way the story culminates is just not original. On the whole, AMIT SAHNI KI LIST is a feel-good film that tickles your funny bone with its witty dialogues. Holds appeal more for the urban audience!

With his sharp wit and refreshing nonchalance, Virr Das in the titular role brings out the irony of the situation effortlessly. However, ASKL has its share of drawbacks, if not deal-breakers. In spite of the smart comic punches, timing and earnest performances, the story lacks the ability to engage you thoroughly. A few scenes (Amit seeking relationship advice from his best friend) seem unfunny. Songs are pointless. Also, the story moves at a lethargic pace and it gets to you since you can predict the ending. Mismatch or Miss Right? Instead of waiting for that 'perfect rom-com', you can give this a try.

Some very good writing, particularly in the dialogue department, is overshadowed by some uninterested acting, amateurish camera work and horrible, horrible music (only a teenage brain that is very, very high on pot could have come up with What the Fark). The makers seem to have been inspired by several popular Hollywood romantic comedies and so, the film becomes predictable.Funny on the surface with faults in its execution, Amit Sahni Ki List should probably come with a warning that says 'Burn after watching'.

Unfortunately, Amit Sahni is not a character I'd ever want to see succeed much like that customary rich friend that thrives on self-created drama. And structured around his contrived situation is a film like him--it strains hard to find conflict even when there is none, and ends up as more like an Ashton Kutcher romedy than a Julia Roberts romcom. I see a fairly bright future for the director. He just about manages to make the most out of a soulless protagonist, half-line story and a one-line screenplay. But then again, which contemporary comedy ever promises to be more?

One man who can’t make up his mind between two women is classic brom-com, and there are some moments in here that come close to the real thing. But the story never really shakes off its tropes, and burst forth into its own. Das is an amiable actor, and is a good fit for the urban confused singleton, Tomatia’s ‘desi’ appeal as well as Nayar’s svelte swishness is used well, but overall, the film is drab.

Amit Sahni Ki list is a easy breezy light hearted take on romance in the new age. There is a certain lethargy to the pace of the film, especially in the second half and the story gets way too predictable towards the end. Scenes between Virr and Vega could have been better developed. There are times when the focus is too much on the wisecracks and the jokes so the emotional connect takes a back beating and suffers. Likeable in parts, Amit Sahni makes a decent watch for those who don't expect too much from their movies.

Amit Sahni Ki List is not a great piece of cinema. It doesn't aspire to have any lofty heights of tragic romanticism (a la Ek Villain). Nor does it, thankfully, converge on a neo-classic film of the past to derive its romantic imagery (a la Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania).It is what it is. An uncluttered, elegantly narrated rom-com about an inherently flawed hero, so confused about his aspirations as a romantic entity that he ends up wallowing in the kind of giddy romanticism that he probably abhors in the movies that he sees.

Despite a great concept, director Ajay Bhuyan cannot mount his story well. It is not entirely a horrid film but quite a disappointing film simply because the premise ​and the concept could very well have been furthered, but the director finds himself wrapped in warped storytelling. Rom-coms need a spin of freshness to sell; this film had scope for a lot, all of it wasted on a film that could not remain lucid.​

  1. Amit Sahni Ki List is a romantic comedy, which will be hitting the theatres tomorrow. It is directed by Ajay Bhuyan, while the lead characters include Vir Das, Anindita Nayar, Vega Tamotia, and Kavi Shastri. The story is all about an investment banker who is seen hunting for a woman of his own dreams. read more review

    Notwithstanding the predictability, Vir makes it watchable! [2.5/5]

    The Rom-com genre in Bollywood has been very different from the Hollywood’s. How can you not have chartbusters to sing it laud to tease your lady-love or shake a leg on it in discs on a Saturday night? How can you even expect to fall in love with it without having a melodramatic heartbreak & overemotional demonstration of its pain on both the parties? And more than that, where is the serious & significant involvement of big extended family members? Mr. Ajay Bhuyan, how can you make a Bollywood Romantic-comedy with limited characters just a couple of more than the fingers on your left or right hand? I fear, AMIT SAHNI KI LIST too had been in the question box for sure, for not meeting all these conditions must for a profitable venture. But then, that doesn’t stop it from being a nice, warm, fresh, witty and lovable romantic comedy for most of it.

    India’s one of the most popular stand-up comedians Virr Das plays Amit, a well-settled heavily paid investment banker with a detailed list of qualities his dream-girl should possess. For obvious reasons, no girl could ever get to tick all the boxes on the list and the search for the ideal girl finally meets its end in Mala [Played by the cute & confident Vega Tamotia], a completely opposite to what Amit is actually looking for. By the time, Amit readies himself for her with identifiable changes in his traits and gets engaged to Mala, the surprise awaits at the very next door. His new desirably gorgeous and deliciously smart business colleague Devika [Anindita Nayar] is supposedly the one who fills all the spots in the list. And, now opens the curious case of confusion, conflict and qualms over one’s ability to choose wise and right.

    The force that drives AMIT SAHNI KI LIST is the minimalist exposé of emotions and the subtle humor in the verbal communication. You never can complain of a forced humor here though it is more of ‘the Vir Das’ approach where the wit comes mostly with the words and not with dramatically loud reactions. Vir is in super form. He can simply pause a scene in between and talk to the viewers exactly in a manner he does it with his live audiences. For the tight spots of an uber-cool urban guy who is all focused for his career and life in general but still baffling with the choices he should make, Vir plays it cool and confident. Vega’s Mala is an emblematic carefree, convinced, lovely & lively girl anyone would love to be with. Anindita woos the screen with her presence but still has a long way to go in the acting department. Kavi Shastri as Amit’s friend is impressive, hilarious and very much likeable.

    All good? I say not. The obviousness, regularity and the lack of excitement in the plot kills the promises it encourages. This is a film you already have seen many a times before, obviously with different set of actors, different titles to remember and possibly of all types of production values. I wish if the narrative has been reduced and the writing part could think more inventive about the plot than just concentrating to the talents of Vir Das for a maximum use. Music of the film is another letdown and though it has an experimental new-age feel, it sounds completely wasted. At best, AMIT SAHNI KI LIST is strictly watchable. For a Sunday evening with nothing else to do but waiting for another murderous Monday on the calendar, it doesn’t take much from you. An easy watch! [2.5/5]
