Filmmaker Indra Kumar, who directed the hit raunchy comedy ‘Masti’ in 2004, is now back with its sequel titled ‘Grand Masti’. Starring Vivek Oberoi, Ritesh Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani, who had starred in ‘Masti’, alongwith six new leading ladies, this sex comedy has hit the screens today. Let’s read on to know how the film is.
Amar (Retiesh Deshmukh), Meet (Vivek Oberoi) and Prem (Aftab Shivdasani) are still leading regular boring lives with their wives. Given that their sexual lives are quite cold and not very happening, this leaves them with no choice but to find other alternatives outside their houses.
One fine day, the three best friends are called for a college reunion and landing at the reunion, they meet Marlo (Kainaat Arora), Rose (Maryam Zakaria) and Mary (Bruna Abdullah) who are three rich sex sirens of the college.
As expected, Amar, Meet and Prem easily get attracted towards the beauties, but then get a shock of their lives when they are accidentally involved in someone’s sudden death. The rest of the film is about how the three best friends will get out of the ruckus that they have landed themselves into.
If you are the one of those types who easily enjoys double meaning dialogues and adult comedies then Grand Masti will be a decent outing for you. Indra Kumar has gone a step ahead with this film and made it a point to incorporate some of the boldest double meaning jokes ever in Indian cinema.
Speaking of performances, Ritesh Deshmukh takes the crown with his super funny expressions and amazing dialogue delivery and comic timing. Moving across to the female leads, Sonali Kulkarni and Manjari Phadnis are apt in their characters.
Karishma Tanna portrays Genelia D’Souza’s character from the prequel with perfection while Pradeep Rawat, who plays the college principal, is amazing in a comic role. Despite all the vulgarity in the scenes, the amusing dialogues and expressions will keep you glued to your seats.
As it is pretty obvious from the trailers of the film, ‘Grand Masti’ is not a movie that you can sit through enjoy with your family. The makers have focused more on the comedy and vulgarity department than on the story. While the story of the film is pretty much similar to the prequel, it doesn’t make any sense at certain points.
Vivek Oberoi is a disappointment in the film as he overplays his character a little too much while on the other hand, Kainaat Arora, Maryam Zakaria and Bruna Abdullah show off their skin a little too much. Their performance is just to add eroticism throughout the movie.
The music album of the film is by Anand Raj Anand and is not very memorable or catchy. The songs fall neatly in the screenplay but fail to create a lasting impact. Cinematography and editing is upto the mark while the background score is comical and goes with the theme of the movie.
The screenplay has nothing new to offer as it is similar to ‘Masti’. One has to praise Indra Kumar’s guts to make a movie filled with such vulgar and blatant jokes that have never been showcased in Hindi films.
Overall, ‘Grand Masti’ is a double dose of adult comedy which is something new for Indian audience. Some of the humor will make rolling on the floor but at the same time, the vulgarity might put you off at times. The family audiences can safely stay away from this film while the younger generations, especially the college going kids will love the film.
