Hopeful of doubling the fun, Ashwni Dhir's Guest iin London only manages to eliminate twice the number of brain cells. A comedy that rides on casual racism, indecorous political views and gaseous discharge, this one fails to amuse even a little. The worst of the worst? In a scene from this film, when a boss attempts to hanky panky with a subordinate of Chinese descent, the annoying lead intervenes. "Yeh karne se izzat kharab hoti hain, aur yeh toh Chinese hain, aur bhi jaldi kharab ho jayegi." This is a major concern with this film — it has ambitions of being a preachy pundit but ends up saying something so abominably out of character that rage is the only emotion it will manage to evoke.

Aryan (Kartik Aaryan) and his pretend-wife Anaya (Kriti Kharbanda) have an arrangement that will help the former gain UK citizenship. But becoming a British national is a concern that's put in the back-burner when the couple are forced to host Aryan's distant relatives, Chachaji (Paresh Rawal) and his wife, Guddi Chachi (Tanvi Azmi). While this happens to be a tedious ordeal for Aryan and Anaya, for us in the audience, it's only worse. Chachaji is judgemental and overtly intrusive and his one-liners are more offensive than amusing. Apart from his firm opinion on Pakistanis, he refuses to bless his bahu since she's in shorts but doesn't hold back from composing an entire ghazal on 'paad'. Without letting out the cliched back story of these unwanted guests, let's just say, it has to do with a certain terror attack, a box of memories and Ajay Devgn.
Leaning on the socially awkward situations that arise in Indian families when they're forced to entertain unwanted guests because well, atithi devo bhava, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? had squeezed the premise dry. So, how else can one make this self-assigned atithi more despicable? Let's make him a patriarchal pest who feels every Pakistani is out to invade and strongly believes that farts are only but blessings of elders.

Kartik Aaryan is as determined in playing victim as he was as a lovesick lad in Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Kriti Kharbanda largely relies on puppy faces to deliver her role, even while she's come a long way from Raaz: Reboot. Once a character actor who could elevate a film, Paresh Rawal still has what it takes to knock up a chuckle. But terrible lines and worse characterisation render him as a loud and laboured caricature of his iconic screen avatars. Tanvi Azmi, as the amiable Guddi Chachi, has little to do here — her character largely smiles through the proceedings and offers reasons for her husband's explosive farts.
When Aryan tells his Pakistani neighbour, "Milte hain sirji kal," he interprets it as "surgical". But if gags were graded, this film would get a Z minus.
