Pati Patni Aur Woh movie review: A light-hearted rom-com

Instagram: Bhumi Pednekar

By: Murtuza Nullwala

In 1978, Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha, and Ranjeeta Kaur starred in a film titled Pati Patni Aur Woh which was a hit at the box office. Now after 41 years, the remake of the film hits the screens with the same name. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the remake stars Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in the lead roles.

Well, the movie revolves around the life of three people, Pati – Chintu Tyagi (Kartik), Patni – Vedika (Bhumi) and Woh – Tapasya (Ananya). Chintu is a middle-class man, with a good job and a beautiful wife. For some work, Tapasya meets Chintu and soon the latter feels a special connection with the former. But, how will Chintu manage his life with both Patni and Woh? Well, watch the movie to know that…

First of all, this movie is not a scene to scene remake of the original one. Just the basic concept of the original film has been taken and a new film has been made for the moviegoers. Mudassar Aziz has written the screenplay and the dialogues and he has done a good job. The dialogues are hilarious especially the ones that are mouthed by Aparshakti Khurana. But after watching the trailer of the film, we expected some more funny scenes and that’s where this movie disappoints. We expected that for those 128 minutes we will be laughing out loud, however, unfortunately, that doesn’t happen. But the dialogues in the second half save the film, especially the one-liners.

Talking about performances, both the actresses are damn good. Bhumi Pednekar as Patni looks gorgeous and has given a very confident performance. Ananya Panday also looks very pretty and she is good in her part. Kartik Aaryan is just fine in the movie and has not given a great performance. The star of the film is Aparshakti Khurana. In each and every scene featuring him, Aparshakti makes us laugh with his antics and he has been given the best dialogues in the movie.

Overall, Pati Patni Aur Woh is a decent, entertaining, light-hearted rom-com.

Ratings: 3/5
