Paying Guest is another comedy film of this season by Bollywood. The film has been directed by Paritosh Painter and has been shooted in Bangkok. The film is about three friends who have lost their jobs and home.
Paying Guest depicts the story of three friends Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Chaudahry and Javed Jaffery, who face cash crunch. All of them are kicked out of the house by the owner of the house. They now begin search for a new house to stay in. At the same time Vatsal Seth, a cousin of one of the friends joins them.
Fortunatley they manage to find a house which suits them fine. The owner of the house is Indian. Johny Lever the owner has one condition that he will let the house to only couples. Therein begins the comedy when two of the friends dress as women to gain access to their new home and manage to convince their crazier landlord Ballu (Johnny Lever) to keep them as paying guests. What happens next is rest of the story.
Performance wise, all the three actors have done wonderful job. The comic timing of Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Choudhary and Javed Jaffery is superb. Shreyas Talpade has proved himself once again in a comic role. Aashish Choudhary is brilliant. Johny Lever and Delnaz Paul are fine. Chunky Pandey and Vatsal Seth have tried their best. Neha Dhupia, Sayali Bhagat, Riya Sen and Celina Jaitley have nothing to spell other than showing glamour and hot looks.
On the Whole, Paying Guets is a total time pass movie. It is a good entertainment film by Paritosh. The film could do much better if the script was little better, Overall the film is a time pass comedy.
