Pataakha is a well-crafted adaptation of Charan Singh Pathik’s short story Do Behnein, which ends with something that’s quite clearly wishful thinking.

Families take care of one another, and that’s usually a good thing. But what if you were left in your sister’s hands, knowing that she loathes you? And, what if, in fact, she had lost her mind and grown violent towards you? That’s the mess Sanya Malhotra’s Genda Kumari and Radhika Madan’s Champa Kumari find themselves in Vishal Bhardwaj’s latest film Pataakha

The film is not only a darkly funny commentary on sisterhood but also an indirect elucidation on the continued conflict in the relationship between India and Pakistan, even after 70 years. It’s interesting to watch how Bhardwaj has used India and Pakistan’s relationship as a metaphor to describe the bond between these two sisters in the film. Just like the two neighboring nations, Genda and Champa, too, are ever ready to take it out on each other

Though Bhardwaj never really goes into the details of why these two sisters are always so rude to each other, he makes sure the audiences must discover it for themselves by the end of the film.

Somewhere in rural Rajasthan, Champa aka Badki and Genda aka Chutki are the daughters of a miner named Shanti Bhushan aka Bapu (Vijay Raaz). The two have similar mannerisms but one wants to study and run a school of her own, while the other has zero interest in books and wants to start her own dairy. They have a neighbour named Dipper (Sunil Grover), who has a penchant for gossip and an ability to provoke a fight quite like Narad Muni.


Clearly, Badki and Chutki are his source of entertainment, given their extreme rivalry, and he never misses an opportunity to fan the flames between them. There comes a twist in the story when these two sisters find their suitors in the village. Now, they are more jealous than ever, even as the lyrics of one of the songs denote, “Tero gundo balma re mero nek balma (Your partner is a thug, mine is a gentleman).” Alas. tragedy strikes when they come to know that their Bapu has already planned to betroth one of the sisters to a rich, desperate widower Patel (Saanand Verma).
