Pati, Patni Aur Woh Storyline
This film revolves around a married couple, Chintu Tyagi (Kartik Aaryan) and Vedika Tripathi (Bhumi Pednekar). They live in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur. Chintoo is an IIT Kanpur graduate working in the Public Works Department. His life seems pretty boring and he started feeling disinterested in his life. He frequently misses his college crush and wants more romance from his wife Vedika.
This tale takes a twist when a Delhi girl Tapasya Singh (Ananya Panday) enters the story who wants Tyagi’s help in opening a garment store in Kanpur. In the beginning, it feels like a fun and later turns into harm for Chintoo and vedika’s marriage.
Along with these lead roles, Aparshakti Khurrana can be seen in the movie who plays Tyagi’s best friend Fahim Rizvi. All the actors performed really well in the film.
When the trailer of this film released, It became a talk of the town for reason. It was criticized for joking about marital rape in a dialogue by Kartik Aryaan. The dialogue was then removed.
The dialogue was, “Biwi se sex maang lein, toh hum bhikaari. Biwi ko sex mana kar dein, toh hum atyachaari aur kisi tarah jugaad Laga ke uss se sex haasil kar lein na, toh balaatkaari bhi hum hain.” This translates to “If we ask our wife for sex, we are termed, beggars. If we deny her sex, we are tyrants. And if we somehow manage to get sex from our wives, then we become rapists.”
Twitter users slammed filmmakers and actors for the controversial dialogue. Right after this, filmmakers promised to not put this dialogue into the final film.
