Pati Patni Aur Woh
Time: 10.30 pm, Monday to Friday
Cast: Five couples, children and a lovely set
Rating: ***
Even at the cost of feeling guilty, I’d say this show is fun to watch. It’s one of those indulgences that make one feel guilty. There aren’t big names to boast of but watching them enter a house and having fun with each other in the kitchen and bedrooms is pleasing to the eyes. When you see the men wearing empathy bellies, you smile. It might make you recollect happy days with your special someone.
The concept is different for an Indian audience. As a precautionary measure, unmarried couples have been shown to occupy separate beds. Everyone is trying to be as real as possible but then this is just the beginning. The show has a fresh look because of the location (it’s not behind closed doors for once) and the attitude of the contestants (they’re not fighting). For once, when you don’t see bitching and backbiting, nudity and anything that makes you go ‘yuck’, you want to thank god for a show that’s different.

What we like
* New concept.
* Different set of contestants from other shows.
* The location works.
* For once, there’s no vulgarity (despite Rakhi Sawant’s presence)

and don’t like
* How we wish time wasn’t wasted on giving us a background on the star couples.
* There are too many shots of celebs commenting about their likes and dislikes. We can do with less of those. Too much footage was dedicated to Rakhi-Elesh.
