At 34, Mithilesh Shukla (Rajpal Yadav) is a bachelor. A librarian with the University of Lucknow, Mithilesh had successfully avoided marriage, despite all the family pressure.
Unable to fight against an ''ideal proposal'', an over emotional mother and his lawyer uncle, he is forced to go to Bareli and see a girl. Soon, Mithilesh meets Veena (Rituparna Sengupta).
A few inches taller, naturally charming, intelligent, naughty yet innocent, and last but not the least, very beautiful, Veena leaves Mithilesh speechless. Very rapidly, he finds his feelings shifting from, embarrassment of rejecting, to fear of rejection.
Director Chandan Arora, who attempted one such story in MAIN MADHURI DIXIT BANNA CHAHTI HOON, once again narrates a story of a nobody [actually, it could be anybody amongst us] and how his insecurities surface soon after his marriage to an attractive woman. The film makes you smile, laugh, even empathize with the goings-on.
Chandan Arora deserves a pat for attempting a different story, but it's the screenplay [in the latter part] that spoils the show. Also, the pacing is so slow in the post-interval portions that the viewer is bound to feel restless. Cinematography [Jehangir Chowdhary] is a notch above the ordinary. The songs are a deterrent; ideally, this should've been a songless film!
Kay Kay puts in another great show (it has become quite a habit with him) in perfect obeisance to his director. A taut, yet down-to-earth, script keeps the film's interest alive till the last minute. Like Madhuri Dixit, here, too, Chandan's deft use of popular Hindi film songs to accentuate the mood of certain sequences deserves special mention.
On the whole, Main Meri Patni Aur Woh is a decent entertainer that could've been an engaging fare had it not been for a mediocre second half.
Marriage mein Twist!
