Lacks all the elements needed for a comedy entertainer.

Comedy is one such genre in Bollywood which is experimented very rarely. There are only handful of films which have become very successful in this genre. The 2010 released film 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge' starring Ajay Devgn and Konkona Sen Sharma in the lead tickled the funny bones with their uninvited guest in the form of Paresh Rawal. A sequel to the film was announced and it released in cinemas on July 7, 2017.

Titled as 'Guest Iin London,' this time the guest arrives in London instead of Mumbai. Aaryan (Kartik Arayan) and Anaya Patel (Kriti Kharbanda) are getting married to each other for their personal motives. On one hand Aaryan wants a permanent citizenship in UK, UK based Anaya is marrying him for money. This is when Gangasharan Gandothra (Paresh Rawal) lands in their house along with his wife Guddi (Tanvi Azmi). Taking this fake marriage ahead, Aaryan and Anaya get married in a lavish wedding attended by guests from localities and the uninvited as well. What happens next is the series of hundred fart jokes and even an entire shayari dedicated to the fart.

While the first one had stellar starcast, this one has a completely fresh and new starcast except from the guest. While we all know Kartik's acting skills in the Punchnama series, Kriti is still struggling to make it big in Bollywood. Their performance is average throughout the film. Paresh Rawal as the guest does only farting jokes all the time which irritated even more. Tanvi Azmi is confused and we wonder why she is in a film like this while she deserves a much better role.

The film is completely boring and lacks all the elements needed for a comedy entertainer. Unlike the earlier film, this one falls completely while creating comedy. It is a well known fact that lame jokes relating to fart, poop and pee are acceptable only at required situations and a whole movie cannot be crafted on it. Ashwni Dhir's nonsensical story line and the screenplay  makes the film completely disinteresting to watch.

If possible avoid being an unexpected guest to the theatres and maintain safe distance.
