 This may not be the film for you.

The Bollywood movie Great Grand Masti is the third film in the trilogy of director Indra Kumar's blockbuster franchise of the 'Masti' films. The Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, Riteish Deshmukh and Urvashi Rautela starrer is an adult comedy full of adult jokes and cheap thrills. The story is written by Tushar Hiranandani while the screenplay is written by Madhur Sharma and Akash Kaushik. The movie has been produced under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures and Maruti International.

The first two films in the franchise of 'Masti' film series had the trio of the leading men chasing girls but this plot line has them encountering a the ghost who is a virgin whilst on their quest to find fulfilling coitus. Ragini (Urvashi Rautela) is the girl of their dreams whom they try to seduce but soon her true colors are revealed and she turns out to be their worst nightmare. Each of them has a family member playing the villain in their sex life, inhibiting coitus. Riteish's character has a superstitious mother-in-law, Aftab's character has an immature sister-in-law and Vivek's character has a brother-in-law who bums them out every time they are in the mood.

These men with conventional tastes in women like them young and voluptuous. They have had different women playing their wives for each new installment in the series. Throughout the whole film they widen their eyes, let their tongues hang out and tremble in shock frequently as they are punished many times by the malevolent spirit of Ragini, who was a princess and died a virgin because of an overprotective father. Further, Shreyas Talpade makes a pointless cameo in the film.

Usha Nadkarni, the Marathi stage and television veteran, is playing the role of mother-in law of Prem. In a scene, she is manhandled by the three men as she is believed to be possessed is loud and not easy on the nerves. But she goes through it with as much dignity as possible.

Due to the cuts ordered by Censor Board references to phallic objects and the female anatomy are kept to a minimum if compared to the previous installment of the Masti series. But the adult jokes, their comedic timing and raunchy cleavage shows keep the audience considerably engaged. The largely male audience will go home happy but women consider yourself warned and if you want meaningful quality cinema, this may not be the film for you.
