rom-com movie by director Ajay Bhuyan. You can watch this movie with a smile on
your face. Consciously or sub-consciously, we all have a ‘criteria list’ for
our ‘perfect’ would be. Are we able to manage to get the ‘Perfect person’. Once
we figure out the ‘Perfect Person’, does the relationship also turn out to be
perfect ? Are we able to live happily forever thereafter? This movie tells us
that the relationships, frequency match between two people and the happiness /
peace felt in the relationships are much beyond any list. Life does not move on
the basis of a list, calculations, luvo-meter (app to measure love). Relationship
is not technical / mechanical, it has to be nourished and taken care. Can a
list really be a road-map and lead one to his / her soul-mate? Amit Sahni’s
journey is peppered with funny situations, and smart takes on relationship
character of this movie- Amit Sahni (Virr Das) is a successful investment
banker. On facing heartbreak after being dumped by the first teenage love
Natasha, Amit decides that now onwards, he won’t allow any girl to reject him. He
goes on to complete his education from IIT, followed by IIM and gets into
high-paying job as an investment banker, drives a BMW, lives in a condo. When he
gets ready for marriage, he prepares his own list for the ‘Perfect Girl’ for
him. He rejects many girls just because the qualities in the girl were not
matching his list. It is a hilarious scene, where he rejects one girl because
she doesn’t have interest in cricket and doesn’t follow Sachin Tendulkar. His
father is shown to be interested in reading newspapers and mother as a
gregarious one, who enjoys talking in acronyms viz. BTW (by the way), IMHO (in
my humble opinion), BTM (behanji turned modern) etc. His childhood friend
Pushkar (Kavi Shastri), a self-proclaimed good cook, keeps giving weird advises
to Amit. All these characters together make the movie worth a watch.
insistence, Amit meets Mala (Vega Tamotia), completely opposite personality as
per his list. Mala is an adventurous person whereas Amit is just the opposite. Mala
seems to be a carefree, dog-loving, creative girl. In spite of the differences,
something works out between Amit and Mala and they commit to each other. Things
seemed to be great for both of them, but then the entry of Devika Dev (Anindita
Nayar) happens. Gradually Amit realizes that Devika matches his list
next? Does he decide to go ahead with Devika? What happens to his relationship
with Mala? Which relationship Amit choose at the end – Devika – the perfect
match as per his list or Mala – the total opposite to his list ?
effortless, witty. Vega Tamotia and Kavi Shashtri have also given great performances.
Noni Singh as Mala’s pet dog is also cute.
scene, where Anu Menon does the entry as a Break-up consultant and gives a presentation
on why the couple should part ways. It highlights, how romance these days has
become more ‘practical’ and romance is no more done with the heart.
been better. There is an instrumental music piece played on a Violin (performed by Mala in the movie),
which is mesmerizing.
