    This film is not bad actually, but not so good also. The story is not that great. The comedy, the humor is not that hilarious. But still it’s an Ok-Ok type of film. You will laugh at some scenes but you will also yawn at some scenes. Many double meaning dialogues were entertaining but it was not unique, in many films we have heard these kinds of double meaning dialogues.
    Although you guys might be knowing the story of the film but still some in brief. Javed Jaffery, Shreyas Talpade, Ashish Chowdhary and Vatsal Seth are closest friends since childhood. Javed wanted to be a script writer and loves Sayali Bhagat who works with her father Paintal in an Entertainment company. Paintal hates Javed and he actually wants to join the company so that he can stay with her girl friend all the time. Ashish Chowdhary works in an Automobile company and Neha Dhupia is the manger of that company. Some situation happens and both fell in love with each other. Shreyas Talpade is a Chef and was working in an Indian Hotel owned by Ballu Singh (Johnny Lever). Shreyas was very lazy in his nature and so was out from that Hotel. Vatsal Seth is an Architect and was looking for a Job and also got one call from the company in which if he was selected for the post then he would also allot one flat from the company. But till then they were roofless.
    Now all these four started looking for an apartment to stay on rent as “Paying Guests”, but they were not having enough money to give deposit. They searched and searched and finally they got one apartment which co-incidentally was the apartment of Ballu Singh, the ex-boss of Shreyas. Ballu Singh had the condition that only couples are allowed to stay. Javed and Shreyas became the wife of Vatsal and Ashish. Shreyas was in disguise of woman so Ballu failed to recognize him. Now Vatsal got the job but his boss Viju Khote said that your flat will be allotted to you in some more few days. Now these four continued their drama. But in the meanwhile Shreyas was fallen in love with Ballu’s sister in law Kalpana (Celina Jaitely). But all this before that Vatsal and Riya were in love with each other and co-incidentally was friend of Celina and came with her in Ballus’s apartment and there she came to knew that Vatsal is married. All this confusion brings some entertainment. And not only this, Chunky Pandey was the brother of Ballu but was fallen in some bad company, his boss actually wanted the Hotel to give that place to some builder. Chunky was after his brother and Ballu was terribly pissed off with that. These four friends decided to help Ballu Singh. These all chaos brings to hilarious situations but the treatment was not given such although I can say pure justice was not given to these situations.
    One the note of performances, Shreyas and Celina were Ok, Ashish and Neha were below Ok, forget about Vatsal and Riya, and my goodness, Sayali Bhagat should leave the industry and Javed should do some character roles, he was pathetic in this role. Chunky did his job well here, he was quite funny. And the only performance I would like to appreciate here is the guy none other than Johnny Lever. He was out-standing.
    Over all miss granny says that if you just want to chill out, wanted to do some time pass and have some extra money in your pocket, then you can surely watch this film.

    I would rate just 2.5/5
