Storyline

Employed as a Librarian in Lucknow University's Tagore Library, Mithilesh Shukla is a 34-year, vertically challenged (just 5'2") old bachelor, who has an extended family consisting of two sisters and one brother, all married, as well as his widowed mother. His maternal uncle, Advocate Kishorilal Mishra, and his mother persuade him to travel to Bareilly to see a prospective bride, and he does so.

Shortly, thereafter Veena is introduced to the rest of the Shukla family, the couple get married, and she moves in with Mithilesh. He will soon find people staring at them, as she towers over him, raises the seat of his motorbike, as well as visits a footpath vendor to increase his height. But when everything fails, he starts making excuses not to be seen with her in public. Things only get worse after his employer hires a much taller computer operator, Akash, who is known to Veena, and he suspects both... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Must Watch Movie

This is one of the best movie i have seen where every character was looking so perfect.MAIN MERI PATNI AUR WOH tells the story of a bachelor, Mithilesh (Rajpal Yadav), a librarian with the University of Lucknow, who does not want to be bound by marriage. But he succumbs to family pressure and agrees to see a girl in Bareilly. Thus, Mithilesh comes face to face with Veena (Rituparna Sengupta).

Mithilesh finds himself captivated by the pretty, charming and educated Veena, who is a few inches taller than him. Surprisingly, Veena gives the nod and consents to the marriage. Mithilesh is thrilled, so is his family.

But there's trouble in paradise! Every compliment paid to his wife and every interaction of his wife with any male begin to haunt Mithilesh and remind him more and more about his lack of height and ordinary looks and his wife's beauty and charm.

Mithilesh now finds himself trying to outdo or at least outsmart every potential competitor right from his milkman to his best friend Salim (Varun Badola) and even the local rickshaw driver Hussain. He even gets into an argument with a vegetable vendor when he offers tomatoes at any price that Veena will decide.

At this juncture, walks in Akash (Kay Kay Menon), who is everything that Mithilesh aspires to be -- tall, smart, a complete liveware. Akash and Veena are friends and they enjoy each other's company. And Mithilesh finds himself to be a stranger when the two get together. Mithilesh's inferiority complex start troubling him and he starts reading books, goes for exercises, even visits a local quack to increase his height. If that isn't enough, he learns to even drink and smoke like Akash. Finally, Mithilesh decides Veena deserves someone like Akash, someone definitely better than him. And from hereon, life takes a twist for this young man! MAIN MERI PATNI AUR WOH could've been one enjoyable ride, but after a promising start, you suddenly realize that the vehicle has run out of gas. Just about everything is well laid out in the first hour itself, right from Rajpal's first meeting with Rituparna to the reasons that instill an inferiority complex in him.

One reason why MAIN MERI PATNI AUR WOH works is because the actors are all perfect for their chosen parts.Rajpal Yadav contributes enormously so was Rituparna Sengupta looking beautiful and gorgeous.Kay Kay is a great actor but had very Little role in this film. Varun Badola is another bright actor who deserves to be seen more in films. All in All a must watch family film.
