Nice laughter lines.

Four comic characters out for an accommodation hunt falls into intricate hurdles. Johnny Lever, the owner puts across a caveat,would only rent the place to couples. The guys give in to the condition laid by the owner and scrambles to materialize their wives. An average film with an average cast.

Johnny Lever never fails to amuse and entertain with his antics. But the tempo of the movie is lost in no time and dips very soon. There are no rib-tickling comedy here folks. Be prepared to get bored soon. An average movie with a below average comedy.

Paritosh Painter seems to have debuted on a slide. Let's pray his next direction bails him out.

A Good Laughter.

Not knowing what this was about, I must say it was a pleasant surprise as it wasn't really advertised at all and especially on TV channels. Three men loose their jobs but when a fourth joins them, they are thrown out of their rented accommodation as well and over night have to find a place to stay. And they do but there is surprise in for one of the man as well as certain conditions..

Starring Shreyas Talpade, Celina Jaitley, Javed Jaffrey, Neha Dhupia, Johnny Lever, Asrani, Chunky Pandey, Paintal, Sayali Bhagat, Riya Sen, Delnaaz Paul and Ashish Choudhary. This is directed by Pantosh Painter and Subash Ghai.

Good acting by all the cast and this can be seen very clearly on the screen and its also nice to see Johnny Lever back after a long time. Shreyas Talpade, from the beginning, along with Javed Jaffrey, Ashish Choudhary and Johnny Lever, goes full steam ahead in this comedy genre movie and there are scenes with him and Johnny Lever, that has one in stitches of laughter. This is very well supported by Javed Jaffrey and Ashish Choudhary and would say that all the cast have an equal role in this movie.

There are moments that have echoes of "Dostana" but this is different and is a change from the other movies this year. It is one of the better ones to watch and have a good laugh and enjoy.

A Good comedy and worth watching.

See Dostana instead

at least if you see Dostana, you can at least come away with the feeling that you were entertained. 'Paying Guests', even with the talents of natural and veteran funny men Johnny Lever and Javed Jaffrey, this poor excuse for a comedy does not take off at all. It's not funny, it's vulgar, it tries too hard, it's boring and is just quite simply an a utter waste of time. Boring. Boring. Boring. We've seen this all before and done better. Bad acting, Bad gags, No laughs and on top of all of that, It's a copy of 'Dostana' and a poor one at that. If you want to be entertained, rent 'Dostana' a better film about two men who pretend to be lovers in order to keep their coveted 'couples only' apartment.
