Masti revolves around three bachelors, Meet (Vivek Oberoi), Prem (Aftab Shivdasani) and Amar (Ritesh Deshmukh). Their lives are good until they get married and their lives turn to hell. Meet marries Anchal (Amrita Rao) who is obsessively possessive about her husband. Prem marries Geeta (Tara Sharma) who is overly religious and thus their sex life suffers. Amar marries Bindiya (Genelia D'Souza) who is dominating and lives with her mother (Archana Puran Singh). The friends get together one night and try to think of a way to get away from their wives for some time and relive their fun bachelor days. The men set their sights on other women but eventually realize they have all been seeing the same girl, Monica (Lara Dutta). She blackmails them about revealing their affair to their wives for Rs.10 lakhs.

The terrified men arrive at Monica's car with all the money, only to find her dead. To not be accused, they try to hide her body, interrupted by police officer Sikander (Ajay Devgan) who begins to suspect, and then starts following, them. Thereafter, the trio goes to Monica's house for further investigation. Insp. Sikander traces the three who hide at Monica's verandah. Next morning, a mysterious man finds them and reveals that he killed Monica and demands ransom to cover the crime. The trio, guilt-ridden goes to their respective wives to apologise. But the very next day, the killer traces them and chases them in a car. Unknown to them, they shoot the killer and escape but end up in jail. After their wives show up, it is revealed that it was just a prank played on them and reveals Monica is alive and the killer turns to be a police officer. The men then apologise their wives and promise to never do "Masti" again.
