After much delay, Vijay's much-awaited Tamil film Master has seen the light of the day on Wednesday, 13 January. Originally, the movie was scheduled for release in April 2020, but the lockdown due to Covid-19 delayed the film's release.
Cast and Crew:
Malavika Mohanan has paired up with Vijay for the first time. Vijay Sethupathi will be playing the role of Bhavani, a gangster, in Lokesh Kanagaraj-directorial flick. Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah, Nassar, Dheena, Ramesh Thilak and many others are part of the cast.
Anirudh Ravichander has scored the music for Master. He has composed a total of eight songs for the movie. 'Kutti Story', ''Vaathi Coming' and 'Quit Pannunda' have turned out to be hit numbers from the flick. Sathyan Sooryan has captured the vision of the director through his lens, while Philomin Raj has edited the flick.
As far as the writers' are concerned, Lokesh Kanagaraj himself has penned the story, while he along with Rathna Kumar and Pon Parthiban have penned the screenplay. Vijay's relative Xavier Britto and manager Jagadish have produced the flick.
Master is the first big movie to hit the screens from South India after the country was lockdown in March 2020. The fans are desperately waiting for the movie to hit the screens and this is evident with the response from the audience to the advance booking of tickets for the movie.
In addition to Tamil and Telugu, Vijay-starrer this time is releasing in Kannada as well.
It is about an alcoholic professor who comes to juvenile school and takes on the gangsters who use children for criminal activities. The clash between the baddie and out-and-out baddie forms the crux of the story:
Rohit Niranjan: Vijay Sethupathi was utilized to the max for his #Bhavani character in #Master right from start to end than his underutilized role in #Petta. No wonder he will sign more films which offers shades of grey / Antagonist. Letz wait for #Uppena & i wish he did #Pushpa
#MasterReview -It was a kinda half-hearted attempt from
after #Kaithi but he ensured that he will present a different shade of Vijay which he was successful in doing it. VSP as Bhavani excelled really well with his role and has a great scope to bring out his best.
There were quite a few a trademark #LokeshKanagaraj sequences like the chase involving trucks and watch out for #Andrea's surprise element.
's music & re-recording have been one of the strengths of the film. On the flip side, the pace of the film is a drawback
Overall, it is worth a theatre visit during the long festive weekend to relax & chill. Lokesh made sure most other characters like Arjun Das and that Lil kid who gets ample scope to display their talent. Verdict- Above Average (Rating- 2.75 / 5 )
S Abishek Raaja: It is quite a task to have a story value when commercial cinema is at stake.
Irrespective of the hit and miss, underlying motive of the movie comes full circle.
Take a bow @Dir_Lokesh
The responsibility of making a #Thalapathy @actorvijay film goes next level.
#MasterFDFS @Dir_Lokesh has already superseded the regular format of #ThalapathyVijay films.
Indha Kadhaye Vera. #MasterFDFS What @VijaySethuOffl can offer to a role will always be an interesting talking point.
His subtle way of conveying a dialog is a treat to watch.
Sequential first half ends on an emotional high. Now waiting to see more rivalry and more action.
@actorvijay continues to score amidst lots of storytelling.
It is definitely refreshing to see
@actorvijay as JD.
@Dir_Lokesh now has the map charted but expecting more turns and sudden brakes.
@anirudhofficial in his prime form again.
Shiva Satyam: #MasterFilm #Master
