Pati Patni Aur Woh is a fun reboot of a classic. A treat for comedy of errors lovers and Light-hearted fun! Kartik Aaryan delivers a very controlled performance. He’s talking all the right routes to reach where he wants to be in Bollywood. With his portrayal of Chintu Sharma, he concretes his position of staying the heartthrob of teenagers. He definitely is adorable and it’s good to see him playing around the accent which goes well with his character. Also, once he loses that moustache, he does a commendable job in adapting the transition.
Despite Kartik Aaryan’s strong presence, Aparshakti Khurana will be the biggest takeaway for me. He gets the meatiest of one-liners and we already know his conviction of delivering those lines. He’s just brilliant, bringing the house down with his performance.
Ananya Panday gets a very uni-dimensional character, which needed to be work upon. She delivers what was instructed, but fails to bring in the impromptu improv. Bhumi Pednekar holds her charm as Patni and she comparatively gets a better character. Keeping the era in mind, her character gets a modern twist and she adapts that very well. A very desirable performance. Sunny Singh, who usually comes in a package with Kartik Aaryan (which we don’t at all mind), has a compelling cameo.
The story jumps between two cities of Lucknow & Kanpur from which we’ve lead from Vedika (Bhumi Pednekar) and Abhinav aka Chintu Tyagi (Kartik Aaryan). They both get hitched through an arranged marriage, in which Chintu is a confused husband who is scattered despite having his sh*t together. Vedika, on the other hand, is unfiltered and we see their journey from ‘just married’ to ‘rust married’ through one song.
Enters ‘woh’ Tapasya (Ananya Panday) and yahan Chintu pighal gaya. To find the missing ingredient in his marriage, he gets close to Tapasya and that’s where the issue starts. Even Vedika has a back-story about his past and that too gets ground in this comedy of errors. The story majorly revolves around Chintu’s double-cross and he got saved by his friend in need Fahim (Aparshakti Khurrana)
