Directed by Indra Kumar, ‘Great Grand Masti’ is one of those films that leave you speechless not in a good way of course. The film is a cocktail of stale double entendres, annoying one-liners and disgusting toilet humour. The film has no logic to it and whenever it picks up pace, it is too late.
In keeping with the franchise’s narrative, the story begins with three sexually frustrated married men Meet (Vivek Oberoi), Prem (Aftab Shivdasani) and Amar (Riteish Deshmukh) who are seeking to have fun with every young available woman. Meet, Amar and Prem are dealing with three different reasons that mar their libido an annoying brother-in-law, an overbearing mother-in-law and a sexy sister-in-law respectively.
In an attempt to escape this, the three head to Amar’s ancestral property. Fortunately or unfortunately for the three men, the caretaker of the house is a leggy lass named Shabri (Urvashi Rautela). What happens next is anything but funny.
The virgin spirit makes not-so-veiled passes at the three horny men. Ones that’ll probably make men off screen cringe, but they seem to work like magic on the three on screen. Acting by the cast is a yawn fest. Two-film old Urvashi isn’t the least bit pleasant with her deadpan expressions. The overly caricaturish acting and over the top gimmicks do little to help the sinking ship. The only silver lining is possibly ace comedian Sanjay Mishra, owing entirely to his comic timing, not so much to his not-so-comic dialogues. Actresses Mishti Chakraborthy, Shraddha Das and Puja Bose don’t have much to do in the film.
What starts off as a cringe fest initially graduates to be repelling over the course of the film. Of course it’s not the best way to spend this weekend!
