Poonam, a traditionally brought-up young woman, is to marry Prem, a groom chosen by her uncle. Poonam and Prem's faith and love are to be tested however, when an accident occurs and Poonam might be scarred for life.
Desperation to be with his only child forces a divorced man to take the guise of the child's nanny. Situations get really messy when the child's grandfather (the man's ex-father-in-law) falls in love with his disguised ex-son-in-law.
Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? is the story of Puneet and Munmun, a happily married couple living in Mumbai whose lives take an interesting turn when a distant relative, Chachaji turns up unannounced at their doorstep from a far off village. The guest overstays his welcome so much so that the exasperated couple come up with various ploys to hasten his departure to hilarious results. Written by
'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge' is a silly but amusing comedy. Munmun lives a happy life with her husband and son. Both are working parents living the modern family life. Their preferable routine life is shattered when, out of nowhere, a guest shows up at their doorstep and stays with them on the promise of a few days. The invasive guest has his own demands and routine which pretty much turns everything upside down for the host family. Days turn to weeks and weeks turn to month but there's no sign of this guest leaving.
The story feels familiar but the jokes work well nonetheless. The special effects are surprisingly good too. Where writer/director Ashwani Dheer fails is to balance the comedy and drama. While he succeeds with humour, the intense moments appear too melodramatic and irritating. It may not be the best comedic movie out there but it's way superior to those David Dhawan/Priyadarshan type movies (with a few exceptions like 'Hera Pheri).
Ajay Devgan seems to be getting more comfortable with comedy (compared to how awful he used to be) which helps. Paresh Rawal is terrific. I am glad to see Konkona Sen Sharma getting the chance to display her comic flair. Even though Rawal dominates the movie, Sen Sharma completely holds her own.
Overall, 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge' promises a few laughs, nothing more. It's enjoyable enough to watch with the family, not a bad date movie and maybe something for a rainy day.
