Negative comments on Pati Patni Aur Woh’s Rape joke hits social media:
After giving hit movies like ‘Pyar ka Punchnama’ and Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety’ people got really excited for Kartik Aaryan’s next remake of the 1978 film Pati Patni Aur Woh. The movie is supposed to be full of entertainment and humor but recently a dialogue from the trailer of the film did not go well with many.
Recently in an interview the lead actress of the film, Bhumi Pednekar made a strong statement and, assured everyone that it is not a sexist film. However, when people saw Kartik using a joke on rape in one of the scenes they got angry.
Check out the trailer here:
The line is spoken by Chintu Tyagi, the errant ‘pati’ of the title, played by actor Kartik Aaryan. He tells his friend, played by Aparshakti Khurana: “Biwi se sex maang lein, toh hum bhikaari. Biwi ko sex mana kar dein, toh hum atyachaari aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke uss se sex haasil kar lein na toh balaatkaari bhi hum hain.”
Immediately after seeing this, people started using #MeToo era and also commented on the film being pointless and making jokes about a sensitive issue like marital rape.

Did the monologue in the trailer of #PatiPatniAurWoh seriously just defend marital rape???? 🤔

…so the whole team of this movie think rape is a joke…”balatkaar” is not a joke and no wife would tag her husband as “balatkaari” just for fun…stop justifying stupidity just bcoz ur need a rhyming scheme in ur dialogues..!!!

This misogyny needs to end! A woman’s power to consent is not something to joke about and what makes it worse is that 20-something year olds are being part of such projects. #PatiPatniAurWoh #Hindifilmindustry #MaritalRape

Its 2019 and still people think it’s okay to joke about rape! Cringeworthy at all levels!

Someone please tell Juno Chopra that it’s 2019 and rape jokes are unacceptable.@TheAaryanKartik how did you agree to that dialogue? @Aparshakti @ananyapandayy @bhumipednekar @TSeries #PatiPatniAurWoh is same old Govinda crap being reheated and sold to us… shameful!!

At 1.17, @TheAaryanKartik‘s character laments how “kisi tarah jugad laga sex hasil karne se” ‘poor’ men are labelled as rapists.
Reducing consent & #MeToo to a joke, this is film making?
