Storyline

Jay is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding - armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. Despite his cold efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi - as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets bubble to the surface.

'The Wedding Guest' 8/10 ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ  = Heavy Praise

I'll make this quick, Some actors are stand out stars who always rise to the occasion and find a way to make every role they play authentic and memorable. Dev Patel is one of those such actors. 'The Wedding Guest' is an understated thriller that keeps you glued to the screen as you watch. Not because of guns blazing or intense car chases, It's because this film has a storyline that unfolds in a masterful way balancing intrigue and mystery through out it's entirety. The pace, music and acting was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this movie and my rating would be 8/10 which garners heavy praise.
