A Mukta Arts presentation PAYING GUESTS is a fast paced rip roaring comedy which will be enjoyed by the entire family. This madcap comedy, earlier titled as CHAAR YAAR, is based on Paritosh Painter’s superhit theatre play by the same name ‘Paying Guest’ (which ran for 2 years in the US, UK, UAE and India).
Starring Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Choudhary, Jaaved Jafferi and Vatsal Sheth, Celina Jaitley, Neha Dhupia, Riya Sen, Sayali Bhagat, Chunky Pandey, Asrani, Delnaaz Paul and Paintal, this laugh riot is written and directed by Paritosh Painter himself and produced by Raju Farooqui. The music has been scored by duo Sajid-Wajid and lyrics penned by Jalees Sherwani. The film has been shot extensively in Bangkok and Mumbai.
PAYING GUESTS is a story about four friends who only create more problems while they think they are solving the existing ones.
What happens when four young fun loving boys [Shreyas Talpade, Javed Jaffrey, Ashish Chowdhary and Vatsal Sheth] begin 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 crazier landlord Ballu played by JOHNNY LEVER to keep them as paying guests but, Ballu has one condition i.e. he wants only couples.
They give in to his condition but – they are all bachelors! Who will play wives? And how?
The new drama triggers a series of confusions that builds into the rich complexities of mistaken identities and a climax of comic wizardries.
