Admissions Open starts off with some foolish pranks the passing out students play in a given few minutes on their teachers. Somehow, most students opt for only one teacher, Sharma sir. So each time he is picked to be ridiculed, Sharma sir retorts with “Get out you idiot, get lost, bastard” etc. So, whatever the subject, the tone for poor execution is set right in the beginning.

There are students who top and there are those who are average or below average. The latter resent the education system since it has no place for them in higher education while the peer pressure advocates degrees as against careers moulded on personal talent. The idea sounds noble enough and just with this ideal in mind, Anupam Kher has set up a college named Spirit, where there will be no faculties, no exams. Those who enrol will be allowed to hone their own talent or preferred field without restraints!!

However, Anupam Kher dies before his concept can be accepted by the concerned authorities. And, the main protagonist, Ankur Khanna with the help of Ashish Vidyarthi and friends takes it upon himself the task of realising his dream,

But, what happens once the Spirit is thrown open to rejects of other colleges what Anupam Kher had in mind? It is mayhem with some goon like, some psycho kinds, some lunatic kind are let loose on the campus! Campus? It looks more like an asylum.

The film is pathetic and lacks imagination. Less said about rest of the aspects the better.
