“Worth it if you like this franchise. The film is 2 hours of fultoo masti.”

When Mithunda goes full retro and does a 'Disco Dancer' reprise, its already paisa wasool for me. Everything else is an add-on.
Okay, this is not exactly intellectually stimulating, and nor is there a social message to convey. The acting's not spectacular either. What it does offer instead, is 2 hours of fultoo masti. You have to hand it to Rohit Shetty - it needs some sort of capability to churn out one no-brainer after another (not all of them work, mind you). And the dialogues !! Masterpieces, most of them.
The beauty of it all is that there's no story at all - they use a mish-mash of melodrama and take everybody's case - Ghajini, Paa included... and oh yess - Facebook too!
The broad storyline is somewhat borrowed from 'Yours, mine and Ours' - Two former lovers (Mithun and Ratna Pathak Shah) who were torn apart by the 'zamaana' and Ratna's dad (Prem Chopra parodying himself - "Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra" :D) yearn for each other, and somehow meet in the current day. After vigorous efforts by Dabbu(Kareena), they decide to marry, much to the chagrin of their adopted kids (all the 5 heroes) who are always at lockhorns with each other.
The film is a complete gag-fest: the two gangs of brothers keep trying to outsmart each other, and the regulars (Sanjay Mishra, Vrajesh Hirjee-the snakeman, Mukesh Tiwari, Ashwini Kalsekar etc.) provide sub-plots. The most noticeable amongst all of them is Johnny Lever as Pappi Bhai, who is practically responsible for as many laughs as Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor could generate combined. Sanjay Mishra is hilarious too, as always.
As expected, the stunts are grandiose - cars crash into ferris wheels, and break into a zillion pieces like bone china. The title track is vivid, full of bright colors and visually appealing. Clearly, the Director hasn't cut any corners here. What could be bettered however, was the length - Atleast two sequences in the second half could be chopped off, when the actors are trying to outsmart each other. We had already got the idea, and boredom was setting in. The characters are completely one-dimensional, each of them sporting an eccentricity.
Ideal festive fare. Just leave your brains at home.
