Dear Urvashi Rautela, ‘Great Grand Masti’ Is NOT a Family Film
Is ‘Great Grand Masti’ really a family film as Urvashi Rautela makes it out to be?
It takes all kinds to make Bollywood the place it really is. So, at one end of the spectrum you have Pahlaj Nihalani, head of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), wanting to mute the word kutiya in a film certified for ‘Adults’ because, you know, it’s a cuss word, and at the other end, you have Urvashi Rautela calling Great Grand Masti a “family film” in a recent interview. The model turned actress actually believes:
It’s a family film, and not at all vulgar. The film is more inspired from the first Masti film. The audiences can come in with their families and have a good time.Urvashi Rautela
Well Urvashi, I happened to watch the trailer of the film and think it would be really exciting to take my 8-year-old for a film filled with dick jokes, breast jokes, sex jokes, double meaning dialogues and what not (hope you got the sarcasm).
I’m totally for sex comedies but selling Great Grand Masti as a “family film” is a bit much because:
Riteish Doing a Check-up Like This Isn’t Really About the Miracles of Medicine
A Girl Looking at Aftab’s Crotch and Shouting “Jiju Hilgaye!” Isn’t About Family Bonding
Urvashi, You Really Didn’t Think This Scene Where You Moan “Mere Seene Pe Kitna Bhoj Hai” Was Really About Your Problems, Right?
Watching a Table Rise Because These Guys Just Had Viagra in Lassi Would Be Awkward to Watch With Mom
At a Time When a Callous Comment on Rape is Widely Condemned, Lyrics That Go “Dil Se Dil Ki Baat Na Maane Toh, Karega Zabardasti” Isn’t Ok by Any Standards
Here’s a tip, next time read the script of the film (if there is one) even after you act in it to figure what genre it really fits into.
