Shaheen Parkar's Film Reviews
One of the tracks in the film, Jiyo Lalla, has a line that goes: ‘Lagake taaron mein tadka, chalo maggi banate hain’. Like the now infamous two-minute noodles, the makers seem to have had an instant recipe for a film — take a social evil as the premise, stir in some real-life incidents, throw in some juveniles and season it with a bunch of assorted characters. The end result is a hard-to-digest khichdi. – See more at: http://www.mid-day.com/articles/uvaa—movie-review/16324152#sthash.PsGEhceo.dpuf
The film does manage to raise chuckles and has its moments, but the deliberate exaggeration for repeated comic effect ends up making the assorted characters into caricatures. Things are in-your-face and nothing is left to the audience’s imagination.
In case you’re looking for plain entertainment, this extravagant endeavour won’t disapppoint. So who do you want to see the film for? Himesh or Honey? The choice is entirely yours.
Adult comedies can be an engaging watch but there is a difference between being super-funny and outright vulgar. Grand Masti leans heavily on the latter. The makers seem to think that the audience can comprehend only in-your-face-humour.
