She was beforehand a he.
Romu was so busy drooling over Shivani throughout their ridiculously quick courtship that he didn’t register the very fact when she informed him about her intercourse change operation.

In different places, humour has been a dependable weapon to allay anxieties over queerness, however not this time spherical. There merely isn’t sufficient time to register the significance of the topic or Shivani’s emotions. It seems at occasions that Pati Patni Aur Panga is a film of roughly 140 minutes chopped up into six episodes. Shivani’s earnest lecture about her proper to be whoever she needs to be barely sinks in.
It doesn’t assist that the characters are poorly sketched and the comedy is jejune. Romu’s flagrant homophobia, which he shares together with his mom, is handed off as a joke.

The proficient Naveen Kasturia, offered as a pathetic dweeb all through, has by no means seemed so forlorn.
