I finally decided to go with my gut and did not watch Grand Masti. I really didn't think there could be a film promo which would make me not watch it. Well, I give Grand Masti points for that.
I have tossed and turned over this, because it doesn't come naturally to me - both not doing my job and not watching a film. I wondered over the suggestion, that maybe the film won't be that bad after all; maybe the trailers are some weird marketing idea of getting the audience to the theater.
There was this other person I know, who heard the actors say in an interview, "don't watch Grand Masti with people who you have respect for."
Well, then if that's how they want to pick their customers, as a first in all of seven years, I choose to register my protest. Everytime I've imagined myself walking out of a theater playing Grand Masti, I visualise myself doing so with my face hidden, lest I be recognised. What is the point then, of reviewing it?
You will certainly find external reviews and twitter verdict for Grand Masti early next week.
