Pati, Patni aur woh | October 2, 2009

I watched the promos for Pati, Patni aur woh and was appalled to say the least. I admit that I succumbed to my curiosity of watching Rakhi Sawant play the part of a mom and see all the drama she is usually so good at coming up with. I missed watching Rakhi ka Swayamwar and caught it in bits and pieces on Youtube.

But, this show is absolutely annoying. For one, the kids are always crying. A crying kid is trying to tell you something. She doesn’t like the surroundings, is hungry, is missing parents or is scared. I suspect that the cast puposely gets the kid riled up and shoot such scenes to incompetency of these celebrity couples. Give them a chance, they will show it themselves. You probably don’t need to do anything! And isn’t this the same Gaurav Chopra Kiran wrote about? Who almost ran over her son and wasn’t initially acknowledging his mistake?

Don’t we have laws against such cruelty? I am seeing some positive response from the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and the Women and Child Development ministry (WCD). I hope they do something to stop this non-sense. Instead of infants, why can’t they have older, school going children who can speak for themselves? Or teen-agers? I can understand the show if they were trying to prove a point against teenage pregnancy or for planned parenthood. But this is just mean!

Well, if the parents don’t look out for their own children what will this world come to?

  1. The day the likes of Rakhi Sawant and Pramod Mahajan got onto reality television is the day I stopped watching these shows. But yes, the parents of the children being used have a lot to answer for. And, I must add, Gaurav Chopra did apologise for his behavior later.

    • Oh you mean Rahul Mahajan on Big Brother? And yes, I read that he did apologize later. Isn’t Rahul Mahajan their next candidate for the Swayamwar?

  2. Poonam,
    I saw bits and pieces of this show yest and was completely appalled! What kind of parents give their kids on hire to be taken care of by strangers! Only publicity and money greedy people. Can fame get u to stoop to such levels.

    • And the NDTV Imagine spokesperson said, that the parents and babies are not getting paid – so its not exploitation! How? I don’t see it!
