Riteish Deshmukh Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani to reunite for ‘Masti 4’ after 7 years


The landscape of Bollywood comedy is set to be enlivened once again as the latest chapter in the beloved ‘Masti’ film series gears up for production. “Masti 4” is officially in the works, with the original trio of Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi, and Aftab Shivdasani reprising their roles to deliver another round of riotous humor and antics.

Fans of the franchise were abuzz with excitement following the announcement made by filmmaker Indra Kumar. Having directed the previous films, Kumar’s latest comedy endeavor promises to continue the legacy of the series known for mixing a comedic take on modern relationships with slapstick and situational humor. Taking the helm as the director for the upcoming installment is Milap Zaveri, renowned for his work on action-packed dramas such as ‘Satyameva Jayate’ and ‘Marjaavaan’.

Zaveri expressed his anticipation and shared his vision for the new project, stating that the essence of ‘Masti’ lies in its celebration of friendship, marriage, and the unyielding power of laughter. His intention to recapture the original charm while adding a modern twist of humor reflects the franchise’s ability to evolve, ensuring that the humor remains relatable to contemporary audiences.

Coming seven years after “Great Grand Masti”, the producers — Kumar, A Jhunjhunwala, Ashok Thakeria, and S K Ahluwalia — are teaming up to provide fans with a fresh dose of laughter reminiscent of their previous works. Since its initial release in 2004, the ‘Masti’ franchise has carved out a niche for itself with two successful sequels in 2013 and 2016.

The upcoming installment is expected to follow the central themes of marital mishaps and friendly schemes that have driven the plot in the past. The first “Masti” movie introduced viewers to three friends caught in the throes of boredom with their married lives, leading them down a path filled with comical errors and adventures. Subsequent films saw them entangled in various outrageous situations, with each movie raising the stakes and the level of laughter.

As is customary for the franchise, speculation is rife over the possible direction the fourth film could take. Will it delve into the complexities of middle age, or will it be a narrative about the next generation? The details of the plot are being anticipated with bated breath, as loyal fans eagerly await the mishaps and merriment that “Masti 4” promises to deliver.

The official statement proclaims ‘Masti 4’ as a “celebration of the undying spirit of laughter,” which resonates well with the time-honored desire for pure, unrestricted enjoyment that is at the heart of comedy. The makers endeavor to fuse nostalgic elements from the original with fresh narrative strands that can create new moments of hilarity, alluding to an interesting blend of nostalgia and innovation.

Behind the scenes, the camaraderie among Deshmukh, Oberoi, and Shivdasani is palpable, with their synergy translating into on-screen chemistry that has been instrumental in the success of the franchise. Their return to the familiar roles has sparked conversations about the nuances they might bring after a long interval, and how their personal growth might mirror in their portrayal of the much-loved characters.

In an entertainment landscape where sequels often face the challenge of balancing originality with the expectations from their predecessors, “Masti 4” stands on the precipice of rekindling the laughter-filled experiences that made it a hit among audiences. As production details unfold and the buzz grows louder, one thing remains certain — the franchise’s commitment to inducing hearty laughter is as strong as ever.
