Adam & Eve live a worry-free life in paradise. They are instructed not to eat an apple. One day they cannot resist the temptation, and both take a bite out of it. Nature takes offense and expels them from heaven. They are forced to live on Earth as ordinary human beings - together with the apple that has followed them. Now Adam is called Ranjeet Chaddha, a Sales Manager, and Eve is called Sharda. Both meet, fall in love, and get married. Both live in perfect harmony and soon become parents of a baby boy. Then one day Sharda sees signs of a lipstick on her husband's kerchief, when she questions, he clarifies and Sharda is satisfied with his explanation. What Sharda does not know that Ranjeet is carrying on with his pretty Secretary, Nirmala Deshpande, who he has convinced that his wife is seriously ill, is dying, and will marry her after her passing. Watch how hilarious events unfold and prove that Ranjeet is a liar and a two-timer, watch him repent... but hold it! Not for long! Written by
Kishore kumar sings the song at the begining of the film very nicely and ravindra jain music also very good. The story of b.r.chopra's pati patnt aur woh formed the story of hrishikesh mukherjee's rang bhirangi which came in 1983. See more »
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.
