My Thoughts
Meeth, Amar and Prem are desperate husbands who are in look out for some masti in their otherwise boring and monotonous lives. They are married and yet live like bachelors. For Meeth (Vivek Oberoi), his wife’s twin brother is the problem, for Amar (Ritesh Deshmukh), his mother in law and for Prem (Aftab Shivdasani), his sister in law. As usual, Prem comes up with an idea - to go to Amar’s haveli where they plan to try some luck with some village bombshells. However, they end up encountering a sexed up ghost Raghini (Urvashi Rautela). The rest of the movie deals with whether the threesome choose to have masti with the ghost!

Well, as a genre, horror is in vogue these days. And this installment of masti uses it very well. Like its predecessor, the base plot continues to be unchanged – desperate husbands, homely wives and a sexy siren. However, unlike the other two, the songs are not very good. The loose script is often saved by Ritesh’s unbelievable comic timings and brilliant reactions.  Usha Nadkarni as Amar’s mother in law is a sure show stealer! And, Antakshari Baba (Sanjay Mishra) makes you laugh every time he is around. Double meaning is added to the famous movie dialogs and songs which is funny. Of course, there are some disgusting scenes which would make you cringe in the seat and a few others which would really take you to a laugh riot. Having said that, there are some dull moments and the climax turns out to be too preachy.

Masti series is famous for its adult comedy. This time they have mixed horror into it. Overall, it’s a onetime watch; a time pass. But then, like Grand Masti (2013), this also is nowhere near Masti (2004).

In short, go for it to enjoy Ritesh’s impeccable comic timing!
