Mudassir Aziz’s Pati Patni Aur Woh -- a remake of the 1978 comedy-drama of the same name -- hits the screens this weekend. The film stars Kartik Aaryan as Abhinav Tyagi aka Chintu Tyagi, a government employee from Kanpur, who is happily married to Vedika (Bhumi Pednekar) until Tapasya Singh (Ananya Pandey) enters his life. Director Mudassar Aziz -- who has previously helmed films like Happy Bhaag Jayegi (2016) and Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi (2018) -- has said his film is a modern take on the original story but has retained its “essence”.
Early reviews of the film are largely positive. Harshada Rege of Times of India gave the movie 3.5 stars and said that Mudassar Aziz “has a firm hold over the romcom genre” and added, “If you are looking for some good entertainment this weekend, this one could be a delightful watch.”
Umesh Punwani, reviewing the movie for an entertainment portal, gave it 3 stars and said, “Mudassar Aziz handles the modernized twists and turns very well.” While he praised Kartik’s performance, he was also full of appreciation for supporting actor Aparshakti Khurana, saying, “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.”
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh gave it 3.5 stars and declared the movie a “winner”. He wrote on Twitter, “Thoroughly entertaining contemporary adaptation of BR Chopra’s classic... Well penned, well executed, well enacted [Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi, Ananya, Aparshakti, all in terrific form]... Recommended!”
In a recent interview with Khaleej Times, Ananya Pandey said she was very “excited” about the movie as it was “a highly entertaining film”. She also said, “It holds much more value because my dad [Chunky Pandey] is known for his comedy and now I'm getting a chance to showcase my funny skills, it can't get better than this."
