When a girl asks for aur zyaada, that makes a man mastizaada,
explains guru Riteish Deshmukh. Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das, cast as Sunny and
Aditya, eagerly go forth with a single point agenda on their minds.
With puns on bananas and balls, ullu banana and juice nikalna,
Milap Zaveri and Mushtaq Sheikh, the same team of writers who couldn’t heat
up Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 last week,
fall flat again. Humour is restricted to rhyming words like mauj-fauj, goti-choti, Das-bindaas and mangalsutra-Kamasutra. Or a sexologist
named Dr Maalkholkar.
Sunny and Adi fall in love with look-alikes Laila and
Lily but with the focus on biology, there’s no question of chemistry.
At some point, the backdrop shifts to Pattaya though
the puns without fun continue. The labored writing has Suresh Menon coming in
as a gay and Shaad Randhawa as a wheelchair-bound fiancé who can’t get up and
you know what that means. But comedy and competence remain absent.
Anyone who lusts after Sunny Leone may please go get
an eyeful of her on the internet. There’s nothing extra being served in Mastizaade despite a double role for Ms
For a sex comedy that satisfies nobody, Mastizaade gets a 1.5* rating.
