Pati Patni Aur Woh

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Director: Mudassar Aziz

Pati Patni Aur Woh box office A still from Pati Patni Aur Woh.

The film starring Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday and Kartik Aaryan is a remake of B R Chopra’s 1978 hit of the same name. The premise of the film centers around a cheating husband Abhinav (Aaryan) who tries to fool his wife Vedika (Pednekar) and mistress Tapasya (Panday). The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film two stars. She wrote, “If only this new triangle had made more of Vedika’s spunk, and Tapasya’s spirit, it would have been a much more interesting take on contemporary marriages and mores. But oh no, it’s more interested in Abhinav’s whiny lines about an ex-girlfriend whom he still pines for, and his awkward passes at the new entrant in his life, even if the film never really is able to explain why he is such a magnet for both the women, who could clearly do better.”

Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship

Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

Director: Bhanu Pratap Singh

Bhumi Pednekar appears in an extended cameo in horror drama Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship.

Since the ship has no humans on board, it is looked at as a ship haunted by the spirit of a girl.
