The English play, “Guest is God” was a light hearted comedy about the preferential treatment given to visitors in Indian homes, especially V.V.I.P’s like the son-in-law, whose unintentional bumbling and goof-ups turn out to his benefit and earn him the respect of all his ‘sasuralees.’ Bhola and the trio of thieves were a laugh riot.
