[A]mit Sahni Ki List is a surprise package
So many times we miss onto a good movie and there are so many different reasons for the same.
Today is the world of big banners, huge promotions, big star cast and everything massive, then only a movie is noticed or to put it right appeals to the viewers.

But that’s not completely true.
Now are also the times, when and where the viewers have grown their appetite and taste for cinema and have emerged as an audience that knows the difference between a bad-plot-huge-film that is hyped and a good-plot-small-film that didn’t do unnecessary promotions.
Yes, promotions are necessary but only to genuinely attract viewership and looks fake when used to hype a film.
And where some films like this don’t quite make an appeal through promotions, it’s the word of mouth and their content that does the work for it.
Nirdeshak (Director) – Utapadak (Producers)
Coming from debut makers, it is a great job. The film produced by Tina Nagpaul, Kavita Kulkarni and Sujata Vemuri under the Pyxis Pictures banner, which is an upcoming production company, is well directed by Ajay Bhuyan.
The whole execution of a very simple and commonplace rom-com becomes lovable with the right execution and movie pace by the director.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The story is of a young and stable in career Amit Sahni (played by Vir Das) who but is wavering when it comes to his love life, the only reason for which is a list that he jotted down to find the perfect woman for himself.
The story is sweet, simple and as said before very regular, and that’s what’s pleasing about it. Its simplicity and seen-before image strikes a chord with the audience and of course plus it is carried out in such an enjoyable way.
Well to start with the screenplay, it isn’t much likeable for when one just sits down for the movie, the starting is a not-so-good song. But then few minutes into the movie, it really surprises. It is both entertaining and delightful. And then till the end, there is nothing as such negative about the film, it is effervescent and keeps the mood light throughout.
And that’s the reason the movie is without any major flaws because the screenplay by Shiv Singh and Rohit Banawlikar seems genuine, easy going and light-hearted. The editing by Shakti Hasija, apart from directors’ execution is what adds movement and apt pace and path for the script to lead. Also the dialogues are nice with those trendy lingos and acronyms and funny one-liners. And then there is Virr Das.
Virr Das as Amit Sahni is his usual. Yes, the actor is in his same avatar, but then that is who he is on screen, cool, effortless and admirable. His expressions and his patent style of dialogue delivery, his apt pauses and the faces he makes, makes the movie worth the while.
Then Vega Tamotia as Mala comes as a complete surprise. New in Bollywood but few films old down South, the actress will sure catch your eye with her charm, simplicity and absence of any signs of difficulty with her performance and role.
Anindita Nayar as Devika was fit for her role but her acting was okayish. Kavi Shastri as Amit’s Childhood Friend Pushkar makes his presence felt. The best is Natasha Rastogi as Amit’s Mother, she is just superb with her dialogues and body language required to pull the role of an up-to-date mother.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The songs are all average except ‘What The Fark’ which is both good to hear to and has nice and cool lyrics.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
