Amit Sahni Ki List Reviews


Go in with modest expectations and perhaps you won't be disappointed. The climax plays on interminably, and the film suffers on account of way too many songs. But there are little pleasures to be had - the consistently witty dialogue, Amit's too-cool-to-be-true mom who speaks almost exclusively in abbreviations and emoticons, and his childhood pal who takes great pleasure in his sufferings.

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.

Give this one a watch. That’s the least you can do. Or should I say that’s the list you can do.

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'.

Renuka Vyavahare
Times Of India


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.

Likeable in parts, Amit Sahni makes a decent watch for those who don't expect too much from their movies.


Amit Sahni Ki List isn’t exactly some excruciating film to endure but it doesn’t bloom enough to qualify as a crackling film. The director’s slapdash work is evident and that mortally harms the film. I am going with a 2/5. This Vir Das show isn’t exactly his best work.

...is a feel-good film that tickles your funny bone with its witty dialogues. Holds appeal more for the urban audience!

Vir Das is best suited as a supporting actor, he can’t quite carry off a film on his own but Vega Tamotia shows some spark. Amit Sahni Ki List tries hard to achieve something but ends up being listless.


Tongue firmly in cheek, Amit Sahni’s list makes Mills & Boon seem like Shakespeare. But despite all its clichéd strengths this film got made and even found a few dozen time slots at the popular multiplex near your house. So if you’re bored of the 5000th episode of your favourite TV soap. Go give Virr Das a chance. He’s trying hard to break the comedian image and find a niche with the romantic crowd. Who knows, perhaps after you spend a thousand rupees watching this film, you might get the joke.

Watch it. It’s light-hearted and quite smart.

Luckily the film never needs to run into any mortifying roadblocks.It’s a smooth ride all the way . FromAmit Sharma’s Ms Perfect(Anindita Nayar, tres chic ) to his Miss Imperfect’s pet dog, every character here has a mind of its own.Ditto the film. It has a heart and brains. Go for it.



Suffice it to say that the dips and curves in the narrative all add up to an experience that leaves us smiling and sometimes chuckling.

Amit Sahni…, on the other hand, is a movie that never really had any ambition to begin with. A standard story of a typically yuppie investment banker (Das as an awkward version of himself) is looking for love based on a list he made in college after a bad break-up. It appears to be a painful rehash of familiar plot-lines from sitcoms like Seinfeld, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, and more.

Amit Sahni Ki List is your film this weekend if you are looking for some fun. You should surely come out with some funny Virr Das expressions in your mind.

Aubrey D'souza


A movie about the quest for love. Sort of. In a way. Actually, a movie about the concept that love cannot be quantified but should be felt. In effect, this is a decent movie with the standard jokes and some really good ones. You will enjoy the moments when the fourth wall breaks. The insights are good and some are really funny. Virr Das does an enjoyable turn. The music, notably the soundtrack, make the movie come alive. Mala and Devika are a treat for the eyes. On the whole, Amit Sahni Ki List is worth a watch on the weekend, with your friends or your significant other.
