Rajeshwari Shinde (Tabu) is the proverbial gold digger. In this case, it is for her sister Nisha (Uvika Chaudhary) for who she is on the look out for a loaded groom. Never mind if her logic is all warped. She sees every handsome boy with a good job as a prospective groom and never shies from getting him home to live as paying guests. After manipulating them, and even getting one to agree to marry her sister, she bumps into another with a better job profile and quickly gets the earlier one to leave her house to accommodate the new guy. Again, she begins her cat-and-mouse game to set her sister up. She fails to realize that her sister has a heart and is not going to negotiate with her feelings, however, much her elder sister may mean good for her.
This is what TOH BAAT PAKKI is all about. What is not clear is why her husband played by Ayub Khan is a silent observer of his wife's mad schemes. I mean, all he has to do is put his foot down and tell her where to get off. His character is that of the wives of the films of old, who did whatever their husband told them to, afraid to voice their opinions.
Loaded with a plot, which at first endears, and then irritates, the film chugs along to its inevitable, predictable, boring end.
Tabu and Sharman Joshi both play their part well, and while Sharman's track has some meat and meaning, Tabu's loses steam mid-way. It's only the intensity of the actress that pulls off such a foolish character so believably.
