Story line: ‘Grand Masti’ is a sequel to the 2004 hit, Masti, which promises to be bigger, funnier and dhamakedaar. The film has been directed by Indra Kumar and presented by Bharat Shah.

Three married guys Vivek Oberoi as Meet, Aftab Shivdasani as Prem and Riteish Deshmukh as Amar go out on fun experience in their college reunion in Shree Lalchand University of Technology and Science where they finally get trapped in a danger.

The sequel will feature Vivek Oberoi and Kainaat Arora in a rain song which is identical to what Lara Dutta and Vivek did in the original.

Review: The movie lovers, who are looking forward to this ‘Masti’ sequel, will definitely get disappointed as ‘Grand Masti’ is all about objectifying women and cheap double meaning jokes. However, the movie poster and promos well portray the movie as an adult comedy, the makers seem to have forgotten the difference between funny and cheap.

'Grand Masti' might open doors for adult comedies, feels Aftab

Actor Aftab Shivdasani believes this adult comedy could open doors for movies of the genre in Bollywood.

"It's in a different space and genre - the adult genre. Not many films are made in that space. I think people want these kinds of films. If it manages to entertain them and the audience like it, the sky is the limit... you never know what will happen," the 35-year-old said.

"I'm quite overwhelmed. I am happy with the way the uncensored promo of the film was received by the audience and I am shocked to see how excited people are about the promo," he said.

Ghajini's new avatar

After winning accolades for essaying the powerful and fearsome villain in hit film "Ghajini", actor Pradeep Rawat is back as the lead antagonist in the adult comedy.

He will be seen as a college principal in "Grand Masti". He sports a very classy European look with checked jackets and berets, and plays a stern character throughout the film, said a source.

It won't spoil youngsters: Ritiesh

"Grand Masti" is an adult comedy, but Riteish Deshmukh says despite being bold, the film won't spoil the youth.

"At the age of 18, we get the right to choose whom to vote for. So, I feel we are knowledgeable and that's why our Constitution gives us the right (to vote at 18). The audience above 18 years will decide whether they have to watch the film or not," Riteish said.

"I think they are intelligent enough to decide this. I don't think the film will spoil them. But I can assure you that the film will entertain the audience," he added.

Vivek feels that irrespective of the content, people of all age groups must watch "Grand Masti", which is about friends.

"Whenever a film based on friendship comes, friends enjoy it watching together. As Riteish said, there is no age for friendship, at every phase of life we have friends and when the friends come together, there is no regard for each other ... So, I feel people of all age groups should watch the film," he said.

Climax scene was truly 'Grand Masti' for cast

Shooting the climax scene for the movie was truly a fun-filled experience for actors Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani, who were too amused with the dialogues to give the act their best shot.

The comedy-drama is said to have topped with a double dose of humorous and funny dialogues.

A source shares that director Indra Kumar had to cut the climax shot multiple times because the actors couldn't concentrate on the dialogues and were continuously laughing.

"The climax of the film is exceptionally funny and the dialogues will just make you burst into heavy doses of laughter," said the source.

"In fact, when Riteish, Viveik, Aftab and Pradeep Rawat were shooting the climax scenes, the guest and onlookers were continuously laughing and more than once the shoot got interrupted thanks to the laughathon.

"Induji had to ultimately request the audience to leave so that she can shoot funny scenes peacefully," the source added.
