Masss aka Massu Engira Masilamani Movie Review
Suriya’s much awaited Tamil supernatural comedy thriller Masss aka Massu got released in the theater today.
Both stars Venkat Prabhu and Suriya have been aching to get back to the business after Anjaan bombed at Box Office. Massu seems to be have brought them back!.
Lets find out whats in store for the viewers in this horror comedy flick.
Suriya and his friend Premji are two local conman who are forced to steal money from a dreaded gang.
However, the two meet with a major accident while returning with the money. After recovering from the accident, Suriya ifinds out that he has acquired the special ability to see ghosts and spirits.
A few ghosts approach Suriya asking him for certain favours, one among them is the Suriya with a Ceylon slang. After having lost his money in the accident, Suriya decides to help the spirits and as a return favour, the spirits promise him to find the lost money.
Suriya and Premji set the pace of movie with light hearted comedy amidst spooky super natural elements in a rather interesting way.
The “other” Suriya is a surprise element and VP touches the character with a Sri Lankan Tamil flavor and kudos to Suriya for pulling it rather brilliantly with the help of Rajasekar’s perfect cinematography, not to forget the CGI effects through the movie giving life to the spirits.
Samuthirakani comes in handy as the villain in the movie and Parthipen as a police officer will impress you with his dilaogue-delivering style and timing. The rest of the star cast including Vidyullekha, Pranitha, Karunas, Sriman and Brahmanandam has also played their roles well.
VP has been stereotyped as the director who loves party hard movies, a bit of adult humor and all that but in Masss he has steered clear of those elements and has given a wholesome family entertainer with an interesting storyline for the summer.
Another noticeable aspect of the film is the background score, composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Cinematography by RD Rajashekhar has been excellent, but the editing by Praveen KL comes out as just above average.
Masss is a one time watch and good entertainer with Suriya’s brilliant performance and Venkat Prabhu’s intriguing story telling ability
