AMIT SAHNI KI LIST, featuring the super talented (former) stand-up comedian and now film star, Vir Das is a sitcom, and one expects the music to be light, fresh, witty and innovative, as per the requirement. A host of composers, both young and experienced like Raghu Dixit and Palash Muchhal etc are a part of the proceedings, so let us checkout the album.

The first track, 'Ab Mein Kya Karoon', tries hard to be funny, but the inane lyrics (Ankur Tiwari) and the oft repeated funny situations fails to save the track, despite a decent rockish tune and high pitched singing by Raghu Dixit.

Next up, 'What The Fark', starts like HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA's 'Saturday Saturday', but thankfully changes track later. It is another routine hip-hop track, despite the presence of Rahul Vaidya, Amit Mishra and Aditi Singh Sharma. The repetitive 'What The Fark', an obvious take on the WTF phrase, fails to tickle the funny bone.

The actor himself takes the mike (also pens the lyrics) for 'Pyaar Hai Kutti Cheez' and does a decent job. The all out rockish track is strongly inspired by the evergreen rock classic, 'We Will We Will Rock You'. There is a reference to Manali's (in) famous drug, Malana cream!

The next number, 'Aisi Hi Hoon Main', by all in one, singer, composer and lyricist Shivi R. Kashyap. The song introduces the main female lead and establishes her character and the tune and mood is once again a stereotypical one, heard before countless times.


He then runs into his now happily married and now pregnant first girlfriend, who gives him some gyaan on goosebumps. He goes in search of Mala, the girl he ditched after his engagement. The same girl because of who his father stopped reading the newspapers in dejection because his son had dumped her.

He finds her and kisses her and realizes he has goosebumps. So there goes. She is the one for him.

Really? How dumb!

CHECK OUT: AMIT SAHNI KI LIST movie dialogues

This 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.


This is experimental cinema which would have done well as a play. At one hour ten minutes, it is definitely taxing, even for the urban audience, which I believe this film is targeted at.

AMIT SAHNI KI LIST is one of those films that look good on paper; in fact, it would have done well as a stand-up comedy act for Vir Das.

Amit (Vir Das) has a long list where he has noted what he wants in his girlfriend. It is quite demanding. He has not mentioned what his girlfriend might want of him. He assumes that she will love Tendulkar (Sachin), cricket and everything that he does. This is apart from the other things he (Amit) loves to do. Sadly, not many of his experimental girlfriends love the cricketer. So he moves from one girl to another, as though they are a commodity and can be got off the rack.

I mean c'mon, give girls their due. They are not just dying to fall for this dude!

Finally, in exasperation, he settles for Mala, a girl his 'constantly-on-the-phone' mother suggests. Amit settles for Mala because he feels he won't find any girl to match his list. After his engagement, however, he meets another bombshell. He dumps his girlfriend for this one, who tracks their meetings on a 'love meter'. When that software detects trouble, she decides to break-up with a break-up expert. Irony is that Amit too wanted to break-up.


He then runs into his now happily married and now pregnant first girlfriend, who gives him some gyaan on goosebumps. He goes in search of Mala, the girl he ditched after his engagement. The same girl because of who his father stopped reading the newspapers in dejection because his son had dumped her.

He finds her and kisses her and realizes he has goosebumps. So there goes. She is the one for him.
