Yes, this madcap comedy is the same that was based on Paritosh Painter's super hit theatre play by this very name and ran for two years in the US, the UK, UAE and India. So, this laugh riot is written and directed by Paritosh Painter himself and produced by Raju Farooqui.
The star cast is huge and comprises Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Choudhary, Jaaved Jafferi and Vatsal Sheth (Males) and Celina Jaitley, Neha Dhupia, Riya Sen, Sayali Bhagat (Females). Among others are Chunky Pandey, Asrani, Delnaaz Paul and Paintal.
This crazy trio of young and fun-loving guys who include Shreyas Talpade, Javed Jaffrey and Ashish Chowdhary begins a crazy house hunt which takes them through a series of ultra comical hurdles in a bid to find that one roof that can tolerate and shelter their combined problems? In the search for a new accommodation, these crazy friends manage to convince their landlord, a Sindhi landlord played by Asrani, whose first name Kisk is considered funny.
Since all these youngsters are bachelors, they don't know how to deal with this new situation. They think over it and settle among themselves to fulfill their landlord's condition. Thus, the new drama triggers a series of confusions that build into the rich complexities of mistaken identities and a climax of comic wizardries!
Then, Vatsal Seth turns up as a cousin to work at Pattaya in Thailand. Meanwhile he consumes alcohol and thus turns homeless and unemployed at the same time. In the ensuing hunt for an alternative place of residence Chowdhary and Seth turn up at Lever's home where his wife Delnaaz Paul also offer accommodation to couples. Strange, isn't it?
The music has been scored by duo Sajid-Wajid and Shabbir Ahme has penned the lyrics. Cinematographer is Selva Kumar and editor is Manish More. The Sajid-Wajid duo has provided fast-paced and foot-tapping music as in their other movies like 'Welcome' and 'Partner'.
However, the duo has failed to impart it the Ghai kind of freshness with nice lyrics. This is evident from the first song "Jack and Jill". Another song "Nazar se nazaria" by Sunidhi Chauhan on the lines of "Crazy kiya re" from the movie 'Dhoom 2' hasn't fared well too. Even the title song "Paying Guest", which is sung by composer-turned-singer Wajid Ali, fails to strike a chord either. So the music as well as the lyrics are average unlike in Ghai's productions.
