Here is an exciting Diwali treat for Suriya fans.

The actor's first look in "Masss" has been released. Suriya gives an intense look in the poster that elevates the curiosity about his character. While a section of the audience has given positive feedback for the first look, some have claimed that it is a copy of a Hollywood film.

Directed by Venkat Prabhu, "Masss" is touted to be a horror film with Suriya and Nayanthara in the lead roles. The film also has Amy Jackson, Jayaram, Partheipan and Premgi Amaren in pivotol roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja composes the soundtracks, while R. D. Rajasekhar will handle the cinematography. Check below "Masss" first look.

This is the first time that Suriya has teamed up with director Venkat. There will be huge expectations as Venkat has a good track record with hit films like "Chennai 28," "Saroja" and "Mankatha."

Suriya is going through a lean phase as his recently-released "Anjaan" failed to set the cash registers ringing. "Anjaan" hit the screens on 15 August as Independence Day treat for the fans. The film received poor reviews from the critics and was panned by the audience. Following the poor show, the film's director Lingusamy was trolled on social networking sites.

Meanwhile, "Masss" director Venkat received advice from Suriya's fans on how to make a film. "Gd mg tweeps!! Just packed up shoot! Astonished 2 c so many advices on how to make a film! Happened 2 me during #mankatha shoot!! #masss," the director had tweeted few months ago.

Fans will be expecting nothing short of a hit film from Suriya and Venkat. The actor reportedly appears in two different looks in the commercial entertainer. In one of his looks, Suriya will be seen having long hair.

"He will be seen wearing his hair long for the first time. A Mumbai-based stylist has worked on his look. It will be a complete image makeover for him. However, he will not be seen in long hair throughout... he has another look in the film as well, but it is kept under wraps," a source close to the film's unit told The Times of India.

"Masss" shooting is progressing well and is expected to hit the screens in 2015.
