Suriya's "Masss" has opened to extremely positive reviews from audience and critics. They have declared that it is a pure commercial entertainer.
"Masss" is a horror-comedy film, which has all the commercial ingredients of a successful movie. The movie shows Suriya in never-before avatars in the movie, which has Pranitha, Parthiban, Samuthikirani, Premji Amaren, Karunas and others are in the cast. "Masss" has Yuvan Shankar Raja's music, RD Rajasekar's cinematography and Praveen KL's editing.
Masilamani (Suriya) and Jet (Premji) are close buddies and small-time thieves. Situation forces them loot smugglers on a boat. On their return, they met with an accident. Following the incident, the hero realises that he has got a supernatural power to see the ghosts. This makes ghosts approach him seeking for favours and Sakthi (Suriya) is one among them. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Audience have heaped praises on Venkat Prabhu in rich words for his ability to churn out an entertaining "Masss" loaded with all the commercial ingredients. The twists and turns in the story, comedy and background music have been appreciated by the cine-goers. Suriya, as always, steals the show. On the flip side, a section of people have criticised that there are a lot of loopholes in the script and at parts logic goes missing. The CGI work is also not up to the mark. Below, find the audience reviews:
#Masss Interval: Jolly good fun. Typical @dirvenkatprabhu thriller with a good dose of spook. Colorful visuals, lil twists and red-hot BGM.
All set to watch India's first romantic horror comedy action entertainer - #Masss.
#Masss: Yuvan has stolen the show with his chilly BGM. Technically strong with vibrant visuals and neat cuts. CG is the worry.
#Masss: The fantasy/horror element adds a lot of spice to the proceedings. Nice packaging by VP, though he doesn't do away with few clichés.
#Masss interval - highly engaging, @Suriya_offl is back!!
Done watching #Masss, @Suriya_offl brothers hardwork and @dirvenkatprabhu s execution has finally paid off!! Congrats brothers!!
#MASSS [3.5/5] : On final analysis, an excellent summer outing for family, kids and youth.. Jus trust @dirvenkatprabhu and @Suriya_offl & go
#MASSS [3.5/5] : @thisisysr 's BGM is certainly a highlight.. Piravi song is very touching.. @Cinemainmygenes 's editing is Pucca Masss..
#MASSS [3.5/5] : #Nayanthara has a small role.. @Premgiamaren 's best role till date.. @rparthiepan 's role gets applause..
#MASSS [3.5/5] : @Suriya_offl as Shakthi gets the Srilankan accent right & delivers a powerful performance.. He is always a delight to watch
#MASSS [3.5/5] : @Suriya_offl completely dominates the proceedings as both Mass and Shakthi.. As Mass, he is playful and then gets serious..
#MASSS [3.5/5] : @dirvenkatprabhu comes up with a unique storyline & mixes the entertainment elements well.. Clever use of prior hits elmnts
If its #AboorvaSagotharargal for Kamal Haasan then it's #Masss for @Suriya_offl .Of course the former was classy while the latter is massy:)
#Masss - 3/5,time pass mass masala entertainer with feel good moments & spooky concept.Loved @Suriya_offl as Shakthi,superb screen presence.
#Masss - 3/5, @dirvenkatprabhu has made it as an entertainer which will work with the masses. Logic loopholes could have been avoided!
#Masss - 3/5, @thisisysr is the another hero of the movie...the bgm for Shakthi is marana mass :)

#Masss 1st half done - Interesting. Supernatural elements used in an entertaining way along the story. #Suriya #Yuvan #VP in good form.
#Masss 1st half - Sri Lankan #Suriya makes a stunning entry & rules the latter part of the 1st half. More fun & a gud backstory expected now
#Masss #Piravi song WOW .. So touching. Beautiful concept. Nice emotions.. Neat VFX ..
#Masss 1st half - references to other heroes, mainly #Vijay and also #Vikram and #Ajith. Also #SaRajkumar. Typical #VP jolly touches ;)
#Masss was satisfying with the @dirvenkatprabhu touches, the supernatural treated in a slightly different way& @Suriya_offl in all his glory
#Masss - A spirits-driven commercial cocktail with some purpose, motive and solid emotions. A well-timed #Sixer from @dirvenkatprabhu & co.

Now Watching: World's first premiere of @Suriya_offl - @dirvenkatprabhu's #Masss!
#Masss 1st half: Interestingly mounted thriller with ample one liners which tickle the funny bone. @Suriya_offl & @thisisysr nailing it.
Karthik Balaji Tweeted
#Masss #Interval. Excellent story writing. Hats off to VP for that. But execution could have been much better.
#Masss @rparthiepan's witty one liners are cool eg) he tooks off thief's coolers and says ' ini yevanum ennatha pudungunenu kekamatan" :)

Glad that the horror angle in #Masss is used creatively to give us an entertainer. Has some issues but it sure doesn't disappoint.
Also, can any other Tamil filmmaker make a film with so many twists other than Venkat Prabhu? #Masss is packed with so many twists.
Take Suriya from #RakhtCharitra and put him in a film like #Masss, it would've been a kick ass film. Nevertheless, still liked it
On the contrary, #Masss could've been an excellent thriller sans comedy. But it's understandable why it was made the way it is.
Super duper kickass 1st half.First of it kind genre n totally engaging. Action,comedy,horror,romance n wat not. 2nd half , cant wait. #Masss
Twist at every turn. Thats 1st half of #Masss. @Suriya_offl show all the way. Hope 2nd half will live up to first.
Suriya says #AdhukkumMele. Kick ass entry. #Masss
#Masss - @Suriya_offl show all the way. He is back to his best. Super stylish and performance. Climax typical but over all a SIXER.
#Masss - And @dirvenkatprabhu hits it out of the park. Action thriller with a mixture of horror , comedy and romance. Sure shot hit. 3.5/5.

@dirvenkatprabhu @Surya_Offl @Premgiamaren team #masss u dsrve to be proud of ur innovative attempt! Saar bst thing is how u didn't overhype
@Premgiamaren nver expcted I would get emotional ovr a character played by u :P
Too good bro, espcly bloopers.. This genre suits you well!
@Surya_Offl you did a gr8 job as both sakthi & mass! Lved ur perfrmance in restaurant in 2nd half! SL accnt was decent attmpt. gr8 comeback!
#Masss - 3.75/5 Slow start but great 2nd half which compensates. +ve @Surya_Offl @Premgiamaren @rparthiepan & refernces. -ve flabby 1st half
#Masss - 3.75/5 (contd)
@thisisysr BGM is huge pillar for film. @Surya_Offl dancing has imprved significantly. SL accent could have been btr
#Masss - 3.75/5 (contd)
Film will click big time with audience just because of suspense factor due to unexplored genre and no large hype
End of first half - lots of logic misses but the bottomline is , it entertains mostly

#Masss: Venkat Prabhu has successfully managed to revive the horror-genre & present it in a refreshing pattern. Afterlife part worked well.
