Pati Patni Aur Woh cast during promotions of the film
Pati Patni Aur Woh is a remake of B R Chopra’s 1978 film of the same name, which starred Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta. The move is set in Kanpur and Lucknow. Kartik and Bhumi have received praise for their performances. A Bollywood Life report read, “The two biggest winners in Pati Patni Aur Woh are the dialogues and performances in that order. Mudassar Aziz needs a special mention for how he has tapped into the core essence of Kanpur and Lucknow's dialect sans alienating viewers from other parts of the country while also embellishing his actors' lines with comical punches. Of course, it helps when you have performers of the calibre of Kartik and Bhumi. Surprisingly, Ananya also does a serviceable job with a cutely charming act.”
