Kartik Aaryan returns to the big screen for the second time this year. This time it is the story of a married man, who loses interest in his wife and is attracted to a young woman from Delhi. Set in Lucknow and Kanpur, the film stars Bhumi Pednekar as wife and Ananya Panday as Kartik's love interest outside of marriage. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film has become a bit lazy due to its supposed misogynistic plot. But that has not prevented our audience from reaching theaters in large numbers.
Opening with Rs. 9.10 crore this Friday, Pati Patni Aur Woh looked promising and people considered it a success immediately. Word of mouth and given the popularity of the actors, the film added other Rs. 12.33 to his collection on Saturday, doing Rs. 21.43 in just two days of its launch. Made with a mediocre budget, PPAW will surely savor success within the first week.
When it comes to competition at the box office, Panipat is the only release this week. The film has not started with large numbers despite the praise it received from critics.
