Amit Sahni Ki List - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Like its lead character, the film is a little lost. Which by itself isn't a bad thing, but difficult to make an interesting story out of.

Thumbs down by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...The final nail in the coffin of my experience of ASKL: for the most part, it is a bore. What does it say about the film that the funniest line comes about one-and-a-half hours into the story (it involves Doordarshan, I won’t say more). Das has a likeable screen presence that is wasted here. You just need to watch him in a village in Durg in Chattisgarh towards the end of the film, turning the simple act of scratching his way up a hillside into a moment of brief hilarity, to know what he’s capable of. But like stand-up comedians, actors too need solid written material to back them. ASKL’s screenplay (credited to Shiv Singh and Rohit Banawlikar) does not have that.... full review

So-So by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...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! ... full review

So-So by Subramanian Harikumar , Bollywood Life ...Though the film lacks the knockout punch to etch its impact on audience’s memory, Amit Sahni Ki List is a refreshing take on the age old love story and definitely deserves a one time watch.

So-So by Tushar Joshi, DNA ...Likeable in parts, Amit Sahni makes a decent watch for those who don't expect too much from their movies. ... full review

Thumbs up by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal ...Kavi Shastri, as Sahni’s best friend Push-kar, Sahni’s talkative, acronym spewing, pole-dancing, mother, Natasha Rastogi, Anu Menon as the relationship breaking-up expert and Noni Singh, the canine with witty thought bubbles, helps keep the perkiness evenly spread-out. The songs do tend to put punctuations marks on the entertainment though. This one’s a fairly engaging dekho – not taxing in the least!... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, ...his film lacks the intended humour besides showing, young, educated girls [who are far more ambitious that the protagonist and who deserve much better] in a frivilous manner. As an audience, we too deserve much better. Having said that, the pseudo intellects will lap this one up.... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...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. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...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.... full review

Thumbs up by Joginder Tuteja, Movie Talkies ...A kind of film that may well have been a Valentine's Day release, Amit Sahni Ki List can be given a comfortable watch. ... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...on paper has more potential than on silver screen. It's a decent romantic comedy with good story line attached to it. Sadly, the screenplay lacks the conviction as well as entertaining factor due to which this perfect list gets smudged, leaving behind blurry impressions.... full review

So-So by Rahul Desai, Mumbai Mirror ...Still, let me go out on a limb and be the first to call this: 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? ... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K. Jha, NDTV ...Ditto the film. It has a heart and brains. Go for it.... full review

So-So by Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now ...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. ... full review

Thumbs down by Paloma Sharma, Rediff ...Funny on the surface with faults in its execution, Amit Sahni Ki List should probably come with a warning that says 'Burn after watching'.... full review

Thumbs down by Anuj Kumar, The Hindu ...Unfortunately, Ajay has very few items on his list. The message that like jewellery, love also demands some imperfection to be lasting, is more spoon-fed than heart felt. The soapy treatment makes it worth a wait for the film’s television premiere. ... full review

So-So by Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India ...Mismatch or Miss Right? Instead of waiting for that 'perfect rom-com', you can give this a try.... full review
