This one is a formula franchise-movie from Bollywood. The formula is called: Four mid-rung male actors. Four bimbos. A comic situation in every reel.

Before we get down to discussing whether Paying Guest, a comic caper directed by Paritosh Painter, is worth a watch this weekend in theatre or not, let’s take a look at the story.
In all sincerity, the film hardly deserves a rating more than a half, but it gets a one simply because of the effort put in by the actors to make the film seem somewhat credible. Otherwise, you’d be silly to pay a penny and watch his trashy film.

Paying Guest, the movie, might be based on a 'successful' play but it is clear that it wasn't a very good one. Brave this at your own risk.
Paying Guests has little to offer except tired jokes about oranges and other suggestive props that alas cannot prop up the creaking sagging props.
