Kartik Aaryan’s Pati Patni Aur Woh opened on Friday, 6th December, with a collection of around INR 8.5 crore. Check out the box office report below.
Mudassir Aziz’s directorial, Pati Patni Aur Woh, was released on Friday, 6th December. The film -- which stars Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in the lead roles -- opened with a collection of around INR 8.5-9 crore. According to a report by Box Office India, this is Kartik Aaryan’s highest opening day ever and has beaten the record of his previous hit film Luka Chuppi. The report however predicted that the film might not be able to earn as much as Ayushmann Khurrana’s recent hit film Dream Girl, although it is expected to do well on Saturday and Sunday.
Pati Patni Aur Woh is a remake of the 1978 classic of the same name, which starred Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta. The comedy film revolves around the subject of infidelity but the new version is a modern take on the original story. Kartik plays the role of Chintu Tyagi, while Bhumi plays his wife Vedika Tripathi and Ananya is the other woman, Tapasya Singh. It shows how Chintu is happily married to Vedika but his harmless flirtation with Tapasya takes a serious turn and leads to chaos in his life.
The film and its actors have received several good reviews. Apart from Kartik and Bhumi’s performances, critics have also praised Aparshakti Khurrana, who plays the role of Chintu’s best friend Fahim Rizvi and has some of the best dialogues. Rohit Vats, in his review for News18, appreciated the film's hilarious dialogues, saying, “A shout out to Mudassar Aziz’s dialogues, who has transformed an ordinary story into a laugh riot without demeaning any of the characters. Though some of the reasons given for behavioural patterns come straight out of his imagination than actual studies but he makes up for it with super comic situations. Pati, Patni Aur Woh leaves you guilt-free even if you laugh on somebody else’s expense.”
