What do you picture when you hear the words, Pati Patni Aur Woh? A privileged husband, a helpless wife and a modern damsel. The new Mudassar Aziz film is everything but not what BR Chopra showed us in 1978 film of the same name. Starring Kartik Aaryan, Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar, Pati Patni Aur Woh is a modern take on the age-old concept of infidelity.
Here, the guy, Abhinav Tyagi AKA Chintu Tyagi played by Kartik Aaryan, is not a usual confident casanova but an IIT topper and a government employee, who has been in only one relationship before his marriage and is still not over his first girlfriend who left him in just 1.5 month. Right after securing a good government job, Abhinav is asked to get married by his father and made to meet Vedika Tripathi (Bhumi Pednekar).
Vedika is a modern-day independent and confident women, who doesn’t shy away to tell her prospective partner that she likes sex. Disappointed by her relationship with a rebel ex-boyfriend, she now wants to have a secure life and therefore wants to get married to the man of her parents’ choice. In bits and pieces, Pati Patni Aur Woh’s Vedika reminds you of Kangana Ranaut’s Tanu from Anand L Rai’s Tanu Weds Manu.
