Hey there, welcome to OTTplay Lost and found, a podcast that tells you about critically-acclaimed yet lesser-known films and shows that you’ve probably not watched yet but should. Stay locked. I'm your host Nikhil.
Main, Meri Patni aur Woh
Marital discord has always made for good cinema. From Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan’s iconic love story Abhimaan (1973) to the Jude Law and Carrie Coon-starrerThe Nest (2020), there have been many films that have closely depicted fragmented relationships and the pain and suffering that some couples go through when a marriage begins to go south. Chandan Arora’s 2005 film Main, Meri Patni aur Woh starring Rajpal Yadav, Rituparna Sengupta and Kay Kay Menon is one such gem. The film explores the trying journey of a short man (played by Yadav) who marries an attractive woman (played by Sengupta), who happens to be significantly taller and better looking than him. This surprisingly-nuanced story captures how the lead character, who’s riddled with inevitable insecurity, deals with the world around him. The story also follows how their relationship eventually crumbles simply based on how others perceive the unlikely pair. Mohit Chauhan fans are in for a treat as the singer-songwriter has lent his vocals to the soul-stirring acoustic number Guncha in this film.
You can stream Main, Meri Patni aur Woh on Netflix right away.
