Verdict: Paresh Rawal acts as the perfect torturous guest, yet again.
Somehow following the same lines of Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge which released in 2010 comes Guest iin London with the same director, Ashwni Dhir, but a different place and an almost different cast. Starring Kartik Aaryan, Kriti Kharbanda and Paresh Rawal in the lead, the movie starts in the present with the notice of the guest arriving and goes into a flashback which is actually the story of the movie.
So here's how the flashback goes. Aryan and Anaya are having a sham marriage with ulterior motives of getting citizenship and a house from each other but their execution of the plan becomes almost difficult when an uninvited guest, who is, wait for it, Aryan's chacha's neighbor's tenant, comes and starts living with them. While on one hand, they are actually grateful towards him and his wife, Guddi (Tanvi Azmi) for bringing real romance into their (Aryan and Anaya) lives. On the other, they are absolutely disgusted by his constant farts and (no we are not kidding, listen to this) poems and songs about farts, and of his wife too, whose sole purpose in life is to only justify her husband's farts with just one dialogue “Inka na, zara pet kharab rehta hai”. After patiently waiting for almost three months, the two start conspiring on how to get the atithis out of the house but as the story unfolds, you realize there is a lot more to it than what you thought there was. Basically, the movie starts growing on you after a point.
The songs of the movie are something you should look are for. If you're a Stereo Nation fan like me, you should totally wait for the last song Thoda Daaru Vich Pyaar Milaade which is a rendition of the old song and plays during the credits. Talking about the locations, they have beautifully balanced the city and the country looks all through the movie.
The 132-minute long movie contains a lot of farts, jokes on farts, poems on farts and even blessings on farts which is why we call it 'A Farty Affair' but the end is what makes the whole movie worthwhile. Of course, Kriti's style, Kartik's good looks and Paresh and Tanvi's acting only add to the movie and makes it more enjoyable.
Why You Should Watch This Movie
A little bit of emotion, a little bit of drama and an Ajay Devgn cameo which gives you nostalgia of Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge awaits. This movie is a family entertainer.
