Pati Patni Aur Woh talks about the issues and stereotypes of extramarital affairs and how the protagonist Chintu Tyagi (Kartik Aaryan) lands himself in trouble as he falls for Tapasya Triparty (Ananya Panday) despite being married to Vedika Tyagi (Bhumi Pednekar).
The film initiates with guided suspense that stimulates your conscience with curiosity (considering you don't know the plot yet) as Chintu escapes from the law's clutches. Without a doubt, the film excels on paper and the fact that it's a remake to makes it more interesting, however, the flaws overshadow the background players who proved to be a worthy choice for this drama.
The emotional conflicts and dynamic layers of scripting remind you of the revolutionary era as Bollywood suffered from monotonous storylines and inefficiently curated films that hardly cared for sensibility. There are a few bits and pieces that try to convince you, but beware do not be fooled by the dialogues and the poster boy image of Pyaar Ka Punchnama star.
Please note that each and every sequence is either handled by Aparshakti Khurrana or Bhumi Pednekar. For many reasons, the two seem far ahead than Ananya Panday and Kartik Aaryan. For starters, the major reason is they have read their character in between the lines and they are living them!

Speaking of Ananya Panday, the youngster has years to go and literally needs to work on her dialogue delivery and expressions. But, considering her as the newbie no one’s to blame her for the lack of experience. In fact, she could have handled herself better, provided she wasn’t hesitant which kept her farther away from the whole conflict.
In a career span of eight years, Kartik Aaryan has stereotyped himself with similar roles that appear to be different but the details of every character seem to be exactly the same. He is seen performing as a protagonist and frankly, there is a lot to expect from him but who could have thought his even his body language might hit a roadblock in this film. Scrutinizing his every move, there seems to be a delay in his reactions and… Snap! You lose the build-up.
The actor seems to be suffering from an identity crisis as he totally lost the track of his character in Pati Patni Aur Woh. Kartik seems to be a victim of static roles and his choices are proof of how his characters are living in a dilemma for women!
It seems to be the time for him to get out of his shell and explore the uncharted spaces.
In conclusion, Aparshakti and Bhumi would convince you of their performance and without a doubt, their lack of screen presence was never a barricade to feature their talents. The two have done tremendously well with their quirk to set the pitch at the right tune. And if it weren’t for them the film would have definitely failed. On the contrary, Ananya needs to learn a lot but, Kartik needs to up his game!
The film is funny and it does tickle your funny bones but the mere facade of promotion cannot avoid sinking this ship. Kartik and Ananya held back throughout the film and considering their prominent screen presence they could have done something out of it.
