After directing movies such as Masti, Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal that received mixed reception at the box office, director Indra Kumar, decided to come out with a comedy entertainer.  But, the tool Indra Kumar decided to use in the movie is ruthless skin show and double meaning dialogues that could more or less be compared with annoying adult rated pop-ups that frequently appear during our internet browsing sessions. 
Grand Masti pans around three young guys who think the world revolves around As, Bs, Cs and Fs. Indra Kumar has used the same set of actors that he used for the first part, Ritesh Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani. The three of them end up getting married and held up with glitches that deprive them of their favorite A, B, C and F. Although the movie was packed with meaningless masala, the trio has managed to gather up a little laughter with the nuances they are good at.
The movie simply has no storyline whatsoever. Indra Kumar has just decided to create sequences that have all the focus on girls, skin show and vulgarity. Sometimes you get the feeling that the director has pushed himself a little too away from the frontline story just to make sure the movie did not lack its USP. 
Sonali Kulkarni, Manjari Fadnis and Karishma Tanna play the wives of Ritesh, Aftab and Vivek respectively and have their share of glamour. Kainaat Arora, Maryam Zakaria and Bruna Abdullah play the sister, wife and daughter respectively of Pradeep Rawat, who plays an important character in the film. It is very evident that these actresses have been used for no other purpose than to create hormonal raise-ups among the young audiences. It is an ironic coincidence that the guys manage to hook up with these women without proper justification. They emerge out of nowhere and end up being desperate to get laid by the three protagonists. 
Indra Kumar has seemingly browsed through the chapters of American Pie and similar movies to pick up all the adult oriented factors necessary for the movie. But in the busy lookout for B grade humour and desperate obscenity, he seemed to have forgotten about linking scenes and creating sequences of some logic. The double meaning dialogues appeal to an extent, but certain scenes like the shadow scene were very suggestive and probably superfluous. 
The use of the crow was unacceptable. It neither had originality nor was neatly presented.  A crow being loyal to its master and performing duties as ordered by him was non-buyable. Pradeep Rawat’s character was not pleasing either. His appearance on screen begins to get obnoxious as the movie progresses. The songs were bitter and boring even though they were packed with sensuality.  
On the whole, Grand Masti is a strict no-no for the family audience. It can be watched by young moviegoers who are looking at nothing but baseless fun.
Verdict: A movie that can be watched by front benchers who would rate obscenity higher than obnoxiousness
