Story: Tushar Hiranandani
It was appreciated in 2004, applauded in 2013, but the third version of the Masti series in 2016 is nothing short of a catastrophe for the sex comedy genre. The sex comedy genre has been increasingly experimented over the last few years in Bollywood. While movies like Hunterr, Kya Kool Hai Hum, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum, Masti, The Shaukeens, Mirch, Ye Kya Ho Raha Hai Great Grand Masti and Mixed Doubles have honoured the genre in the past years, so far 2016 has seen botched up attempts like Mastizaade, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum3 and now Great Grand Masti.
The movie kicks start with some giggles and naughty scenes as director Indra Kumar introduces his 3 main characters, Amar, Meet and Prem and gives a brief presentation on their troubled lives. Once the introduction is done and the journey gathers pace it loses all its momentum. Lack of organization, poor editing, average acting, tormenting songs and only sex and no comedy are the highlights of the flick. With exemplary movies like Dhamaal, Masti, Ishq and Mann in his bag, director Indra Kumar has directed his latest as a novice, getting all the basics wrong.
Considering the acting performances, the lead stars take the back seat as the supporting cast and the hot and sensuous Urvashi Rautela run the show, making your job of getting tortured in the theatres easier. Once you are exhausted with your share of eatables in the first half, the second half gets even more nerve racking and irritating, urging you to reach out to make multiple visits to washroom and snack bar. Cameos from Sudesh Lahri and Shreyas Talpade seem as unwanted as the letters “ea” in the word “Tea”. Well in this puddle of vulgar and meaningless jokes, the only proportionate take away is the performance Sanjay Mishra and Usha Nadkarni, who try to add life to this dying campaign.
To sum up Great Grand Masti was so terrible that it put me in two minds of whether to review this film or not. Watching this movie will make makes you feel like you went to try a delicacy but ended up eating an uncooked meal for the same price.
My Rating: 0.5/5.
