The Man, his Wife and His Mistress
13 October 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

B.R. Chopra's hilarious 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' is a laugh riot from start to end. As the title suggest, it tackles themes like monogamy, infidelity and betrayal. Chopra addresses these issues but with a good dose of humour. The formula of a love triangle between a husband, his wife and the other woman has often been repeated in Hindi cinema especially in the more recent times and, in addition to its cheeky sense of humour, what stands out in 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' are the characters and their interactions.

Ranjeet and Sharda have had a love marriage and both are happy except that Ranjeet is not fully satisfied and he tries to woo every other unmarried hot chick that comes his way (unbeknownst to his wife). Then there's the beautiful Nirmala who although modern, feels that she is forced by circumstances to work in order to provide for her family. All three principle characters are very well defined and easy to relate to.

Being among the most versatile actors, comedy comes natural to Sanjeev Kumar and he is terrific. As sleazy and a bit of a scum that Ranjit is, there's something likable about the fellow. Vidya Sinha too is great as the strong-minded loving wife. Ranjeeta Kaur is spellbinding as the other woman. She is so stunningly beautiful. Who wouldn't fall in love with her? She remains one of the most underrated actresses.

The songs aren't classics but the funny lyrics had me giggling. The only song that should have better been left out is the 'Tere Naam Tere Naam' track.

Overall, 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' is a fun movie about the common people. The film opens with an amusing animated sequence that tells the story of Adam and Eve and closes with the appearance of another beautiful actress.
