Mumbai: Vir Das starrer ‘Amit Sahni Ki List’, a rom-com revolving around a young man’s quest for true love, which released this weekend, seems to have done quite well for itself, despite being pitted against two big releases.
Though ‘Hate Story 2’ and ‘Pizza’, both films backed by big production houses, released on the same day as Amit Sahni Ki List’, the rom-com has not been overshadowed by the revenge drama and the thrill-chill fare.
Despite having a modest budget and a release in only 350 screens as opposed to the general practice to releasing a film in around 900-1200 screens, ‘Amit Sahni Ki List’ has seen a steady growth at the box office.
A hilarious take on dating and relationships, Amit Sahni Ki List, which also starred Vega Tamotia, Anindita Nayar and Kavi Shastri, revolved around a quirky investment banker’s quest for true love and the film is being much appreciated for its light-hearted treatment, great music, superb performances and effective humour quotient.
Producer Tina Nagpaul said, “We are extremely delighted at the response that the film has got in theatres. We always believed in our film and it is heartening to see the kind of positive response the film is getting.”
