Storyline: More than the sequel, Guest Iin London is a copy of 2010 film Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? by the same director. Just that this time the action has shifted from Mumbai to London. You won’t find actors like Ajay Devgn and Konkona Sensharma in the new film, but Paresh Rawal, as the nerve-wrecking guest, tries to fill for the missing big names. One more thing, what seemed like a fine balance of comedy and slice of life in the original is completely absent here. In fact, it’s so lame that you would find the tobacco ads more entertaining than watching Paresh Rawal farting for at least hundred times.
That’s not all. He sings an entire song on farting in the film. Now that’s taking things a bit too far. Yes, Guest Iin London is painful. Or who knows, you might be the Superman.
Even if fart and potty jokes are your thing, you need nerves of steel to sit through Paresh Rawal’s weird Pakistan bashing. All those ‘baap baap hota hai, beta beta hota hai’ sort of attempted puns will make you wonder what could have forced director Ashwni Dhir to come up with such a film!
