Megastar Mammootty's most-anticipated Masterpiece has finally hit the theatres in Kerala as the first Christmas release of the year on Thursday, December 21. With no biggies locking horns against the campus action thriller, the film has opened to houseful shows all over the state on the opening day itself.
In the Ajai Vasudev directorial, Mammootty portrays the role of strict English professor Edward Livingstone aka Eddy at a college in Kerala. The stylish avatar of the megastar in the promo videos has already impressed the audience who have high expectations from the flick.
Masterpiece also has Unni Mukundan, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Mukesh, Poonam Bajwa, Gokul Suresh, Maqbool Salmaan, Santhosh Pandit and Lena, among many others in significant roles.
Deepak Dev has composed music for the action entertainer, which is scripted by Uday Krishna and captured by Vinod Illampally. CH Muhammed has bankrolled the project under the banner of Royal Cinemas.
Special Lady fans show
Special fans shows have been arranged across the state and interestingly, for the first time in the history of Malayalam cinema, a premiere show exclusively for lady fans of Mammootty was screened at Chengannur. The photos from the theatre have been doing the rounds on social media.

#Masterpiece - Watchable flick filled with Powerpacked Action & Some stylish scenes of Megastar ! Ajai Vasudev's best for sure. BGM Was a big let down, Out of 5 Songs 3 are good... As a thriller very poor script. Climax Twist for the fans, good one2.75/5
#masterpiece biggest let down is fights/ over build up to hero and hero is fighting like a 5 yr boy- those who see minimum 10 action scenes will laugh at many parts-- suspense is clearly predictable-hope mammootty fans make it hit-
Apart from the poor comedy track involving Pavanaazhi and the green mat climax #Masterpiece works as a masala entertainer.@mammukka rockedddd As a fan boy its nothing less than a treat once @mammukka steps in #Masterpiece
Pathetic first half. Hope second half will have some grip. We need good movies not stardom movies. #Masterpiece. Better second half but overall a useless mass movie. Same old stuff. Once again same pattern movies from Mammootty. Need to forget the fans and should start doing good movies. Its ok to do odd mass movie like Big B2 but this is very sad.
#Masterpiece 1st half Usual two rival college gangs Murder Hero entry n damar padar Started ok but then t bore began..mammotty entry comes aftr an hour..his Dialogues Couple of mass shots here n der. Nothing much to say Amateur writing Mammotty looks smart Poonam Bajwa beauty (but no screen space) 2.25/5 Ending is a positive May work with mass audiences
Comparing to first half, second half was good. #Mammookka - as always the EVER stylish n mass . On the whole it satisfied me and I liked it ! #Masterpiece
