The reimagined 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' is a reboot of BR Chopra’s 1978 original, that narrates the story of an extramarital affair in a middle-class household, this time set in the town of Kanpur.

Government employee Abhinav Tyagi aka Chintu (Aaryan) is smitten by Vedika (Pednekar) when their parents introduce them as a prospective match. Soon after, they tie the knot. The couple is living happily, till Tapasya Singh (Panday) walks into Chintu’s life.

Delhi-girl Tapasya reaches Kanpur looking for a plot to set up a workshop for her boutique. Chintu finds her too attractive to resist, but won’t cheat on his wife either. So, he finds an idea to spend time with the gorgeous lady. Fahim Rizvi (Khurana) joins the intrigue as a trustworthy friend of Chintu but he only adds to the married man’s troubles. Soon, the situation gets more complicated, leading to confusion and drama. Aaryan makes for an entertaining Chintu. He remains a papa’s boy for most parts of the film, with relatable human instincts. Known for his monologues, Aaryan this time talks about the rut that middle-class men get caught in.

Pednekar as the 'patni' impresses with her act and delivers a twist at the end that gives the story a contemporary appeal. Two-film-old Panday had to bank entirely on her screen presence as the 'woh' but does that admirably. Director Mudassar Aziz showcases his hold over the rom-com genre with the interplay of characters, witty dialogues and local flavours.

'Pati Patni Aur Woh' manages to stay funny and politically correct despite the odd moments of melodrama.
