Masti with a Succubus
When we talk about sex comedies, we usually have people curl up their lips in disgust and yes they have a reason to do so, since the kind of films which were dished out in the last couple of years in the name of sex comedies. Sex comedies was a genre which was introduced to dish out films which were "naughty" and not "vulgar". Vulgarity makes you disgusted, while naughty makes you blush. This was where the British Comic series "carry on" won the hearts of its audiences.
While it is too over the tops to compare "Great Grand Masti" to the "carry on series", it is surprisingly a funny movie which manages to become naughty with out being too vulgar (yep I am emphasizing on "too", since there were scenes which bordered towards it). End of the movie, you realize the movie achieved it's objective which is making you laugh at all the various out of the world sexual situations the three protoganists find themselves in.
Amar (Ritesh Deshmukh), Meet (Vivek Oberoi) and Prem (Aftab Shivdasani) are 3 friends whose conjugal lives are not going as they would have loved them to go. The three friends run into Shiny, (Sonali Raut) a maid and they are bowled over and decide to go to her hometown "dhoodwadi" which according to them would have more shineys for fun.
Incidentally Amar has a mansion in Dhoodwadi where they decide to spend their time. Unknown to them, the mansion is haunted by an evil spirit Ragini sms (Urvasi Rautela) who died a virgin. Now Ragini traps the three guys and lays a condition that one of them should help her loose her virginity and travel to the afterword with her while the other two will be left alive.
Uravasi Rautela looks hot as the succubus, but the same cannot be said of her performance. Shedding clothes at the drop of a hat cannot compensate for poor acting skills, but then when have such films relied primarily on the acting skills of the actresses.
Ritesh Deshmukh is the best among the trio, his weird facial expressions, the body language etc., is bang on target. Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani too are excellent in their own way.
Shreyas Talpade as the gigolo Babu Rangeela manages to hog the attention the 20 or so minutes he is on screen, especially in the scene where the trio's wives try to sell the bungalow to him and he thinks they are his customers. The major disappointment in the film are the trio's wives played by Misthi, Shraddha Das and Pooja Bose with no screen presence and yup, they cannot act to save their life.
Story by Tushar Hirandani is witty to the core. CGI sucks big time Music is forgettable
Direction by Indra Kumar is good as he managed to be successful in making the audience laugh and choosing the right script (even though the karwa chauth angle will leave everyone squirming).
I would give this 3 on 5 and puritans please stay away from this one and yep and the rest who are born with naughty gene, watch it!!!!!
