GUEST INN LONDON MOVIE REVIEW: KARTIK AARYAN AND PARESH RAWAL’S COMIC DRAMA IS A HOPELESS ATTEMPT TO MAKE US LAUGH
Guest Iin London Movie Review: Apart from being a painful travesty of a film, Guest Iin London is both repulsively sexist and racist.
Guest Iin London movie cast: Kartik Aaryan, Paresh Rawal, Kriti Kharbanda, Tanvi Azmi
Guest Iin London movie director: Ashwni Dhir
Guest Iin London movie rating: 0.5 stars
Guest Iin London, featuring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Kharbanda in the main roles, alongside Paresh Rawal and Tanvi Azmi, has significantly more than to offer than most people would imagine; however NOT positively.The film was intended to be a cheerful comedy, and not only does it not fit the bill, Guest Iin London may not be reasonable for any class, drama or something else. The movie was relied upon to be in the romantic comedy sort, but as it turns out, it’s a bit of a thriller mystery too.
We live in a nation where our visitors are thought to be Gods a la ‘Athithi Devo Bhava’. Yet, when similar visitors expand their stay unendingly, they tend to become a pain. Guest IIN LONDON is nothing but a cinematic version of this saying. The film begins off with the flashback of occasions which reflects the passage of an elderly man named Gangasharan Gandothra (Paresh Rawal) and his loyal spouse Guddi (Tanvi Azmi) in the lives of (Kartik Aaryan) and Anaya (Kriti Kharbanda).
Both, Kartik and Anaya are on the verge of getting married for their individual vested interests. While Kartik needs a lasting citizenship in UK, UK resident Anaya is getting hitched to him for cash. In the mean time Gangashara and Guddi arrive up in their home as uninvited visitors and make this fake marriage of theirs into a grand celebrations including the neigbours from the locality. No sooner do they get hitched, Kartik and Anaya realise that they have actually fallen in love with each other. Gangasharan and Guddi’s adoration and friendship towards the recently wedded couple just channels their affection for each other substantially more.
As days passes by, Gangasharan and Guddi show no signs of going back to India. All the attempts to pack them back prove futile for Kartik and Anaya. One day, the world around Kartik and Anaya comes to a standstill, when they find a startling truth about Gangasharan and Guddi. What is the stunning truth about Gangasharan and Guddi which Kartik and Anaya find, are Gangasharan and Guddi as innocent as they appear or is there more than what meets the eye, is what forms the rest of the film.
Sanjay Mishra is the best thing that could have happened to this film. On the off chance that anyone will truly make you giggle, it’s him. His execution as Pakistani officer cum Aryan’s neighbor Mr Habibi is is just too good!
Paresh Rawal is one of the best comics of Bollywood however to cast him in a film with a silly script and character is an aggregate waste.The same can be said in regards to Naveen Kaushik, who is a talented actor but is wasted in the film. His character (Aryan’s boss) is absolutely redundant. Tanvi Azmi’s performance is also amazing as the loving and caring chachi, always embarrassed due to her husband’s farts. Kartik Aaryan is average and Kriti Kharbanda overacts.
It’s a khichdi of a film which leads nowhere. It tries to be funny but it is not, it tries to get people’s sympathy but fails there too, it tries to get serious and then again funny— the audience is super bored meanwhile. Better to avoid these guests.
