And, the two most anticipated movies, one historical period drama “Panipat” and the other one laugh riot titled “Pati Patni Aur Woh,” released today simultaneously. Let’s read their honest reviews to know which one is worth to watch and which one is not.
If you are in a fun mood right now and looking for something joyful to spend your time, then Pati Patni Aur Woh is a perfect choice. Yes, the movie’s plot, its dialogues, and acting all make it one delightfully funny ride about a privileged husband, a wife, and a cool young lady.
Once you start watching the film, you realize that the new Mudassar Aziz film is not similar to BR Chopra’s 1978 film of the same name. Starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, and Ananya Panday, the flick is a modern take on the age-old concept of adultery.
Here, the guy Abhinav Tyagi AKA Chintu Tyagi (Kartik Aaryan) is an IIT topper and a government employee, who gets married to Vedika Tripathi (Bhumi Pednekar) by his parents’ choice but is still in happy marriage at least for the initial days. And, then enters Tapasya Singh, played by Ananya Panday, who somehow added little spice in Chintu’s three-year-old boring marriage life. Here begins the fun.
So, we must say this one could be a delightful watch if you are looking for some good entertainment this weekend.
Now it’s time for Panipat. Based on historical facts, Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus is taking some creative liberties along the way. The entire movie revolves around Shadashivrao Bhau (Arjun Kapoor), an able commander in his cousin Nanasaheb Peshwa’s (Mohnish Bahl) army.
Shadashivrao Bhau is chosen by the Maratha Peshwa to lead their army to Delhi after a victorious battle against the Nizam of Udgir. And, then comes Ahmad Shah Abdali (Sanjay Dutt), the king of Afghanistan who, after allying with Najib-Ud-Daula (Mantra) to defeat the Marathas and curb their expanding power, has set his inroads into India.
The movie packs-in a layered narrative that delves into the intricate workings of war strategies, the complex politics of the period, negotiation dynamics, and the importance of forming alliances.
The most important aspect of the movie is the whole saga weaves in the middle- the love story of Parvati Bai and Shadashivrao Bhau. This needs attention that the chemistry between Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon as their love story develops is one of the high points of the film.
In all, the flick projects one significant chapter of history and is a war drama that lauds the strong principles, courage, and the unshakeable bravery of the Marathas. So, if you are also fond of watching historical moments, you can surely go for Panipat; it won’t disappoint you at all.
On concluding note, we must say both the movies worth your time as well as money. Yes, you can spend your weekend watching any of them, all you need to do is choose between highly effective historic saga or adultery-themed comedy cult.
