Grand Masti Review: Director Mr. Indra Kumar work is fine. He made the silent scenes more hilarious than the scenes with punch lines in Grand Masti. He has justified this adult comedy genre in good way. A scene, when Aftab comes out from bull is hilarious, even it is a silent one. Big drawback of this movie is it’s scrap story. Screenplay is also simple. Dialogues by Milap Zaveri, are the highlight of film. It is very clear that first they had selected the A rated jokes from all other sources then thought how to stuff them. So, outcome is no story and linear screenplay. Most of the jokes are already heard. After all, they will make you smile at least. I appreciate the makers honesty that they had already given clear cut indication about the content of Grand Masti in trailer and promos.
The clichéd-troubled Indian husbands – all action deprived for one stupid reason or the other, forms the basis of Grand Masti. Indra Kumar sticks on to the formula of suspecting husband + husband of a traditional kharelu homemaker Indian wife for a deprived husband. Walk in: -If you can watch already read jokes on screen. -Vulgarity is your cup of tea. -Those which makes a common man cringe are ‘jokes’ for you. -If you want to torture a friend so bad that you do not mind going through the same ordeal yourself.
Performance wise Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani & Riteish Deshmukh reprise their roles & they are in top form. Vivek proves his versatility once again by portraying an out-and-out comic role, while Aftab & Riteish are already known for their exceptional comic-timing. Also, The Trio share a superb on-screen chemistry throughout the movie. Sonali Kulkarni, Manjari Fadnis & Karishma Tanna are strictly okay. Maryam Zakaria, Kainaat Arora & Bruna Abdullah add a lot of glamour in the goings-on of Grand Masti. Pradeep Rawat is excellent. Suresh Menon is funny.
