"Paying Guest" is one such 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, Aashish Chaudhary 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 search for new accommodations these crazy friends manage to convince their crazier landlord Ballu played by Johnny Lever to keep them as paying guests, but he has only one condition i.e. he only wants couples. They say yes to his conditions, when all of them are bachelors. Who will play the wives? And how? The new drama triggers a series of confusions that build into rich complexity of mistaken identities and a climax of comic wizardries.
