Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? by Ashwin Dhir was a laugh riot. It was a new joke in town.
GUEST IN LONDON ( GIL) is a poorly delivered repeat joke.
This time it is not Mumbai but London.
It is the young cast of Aryan (Kartik Aaryan as a software engineer) getting into fake marriage with Ananya (Kirti Khanbanda as a cab driver) to get permanent citizenship in London. They end up hosting the imperfect at your face guest Gangasharan Gandotra (Paresh Rawal) and his wife played by Tanvi Azami.
And there is the Pakistani neighbour, also a cop in London, who is sure that the marriage is of convenience and is hell-bent on proving so.
Sanjay Mishra, Paresh Rawal and Tanvi Azami act through their roles and add nothing new to their talented list of characters. Kartik the lead is good. He has expressions and can act, the same cannot be said of Kirti who disappoints.
THERE IS NOTHING NEW.
THERE IS NO JOKE THAT REALLY MAKE YOU SMILE.
As usual, with Indian films, the songs do nothing to move the story forward.
To save itself, the film dives into fart jokes, situational farts and for the first time ever in global cinema ( to my knowledge ) a Ghazal on Fart. Poking jokes and pun at Pakistan gets some laughs, but it is still very gross.
To save you all the burns, watch the trailer that is an example of over promising.
