Amidst huge expectations, Tamil star Vijay’s Master released simultaneously across twin Telugu states today. Let’s analyse it.
Despite being an alcoholic professor JD ( Vijay) gets support from all quarters due to his straight forward nature. But one fine day, he will be expelled from the college due to a small incident and later JD lands in a juvenile home. During this course in time, Bhavani ( Vijay Sethupathi) enters into JD’s life? How things shape up after Bhavani’s confrontation with JD? Is there any crucial story behind both of them? To get clarity, watch the film in theatres near you.
As expected Thalapathy Vijay rocked with stylish acting and full of swag. His mannerisms and terrific screen presence will be loved by his fans.
On the other hand, Vijay Sethupathi is splendid with his rugged and rustic avatar. Effortlessly, Vijay Sethupathi lived up in the given character and passed the test with flying colours.
The confrontation scenes between Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi are one of the major assets for the film. The climax fight sequence showcases the ferocious shades of both the actors has been presented nicely.
Heroine Malavika Mohanan is cute as a college professor and did a decent performance in her limited screen space.
The major disappointment regarding the film is that it has a regular template and thin storyline.
Though a few elevation scenes satisfy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi fans, that something new which generally expect from the film is missing completely.
Both the halves of the film has a few dragged scenes which come as a disturbance in the proceedings. Adding to it, the conflict point showcased between Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi lacks proper punch in it.
Music by Anirudh is top-notch as his background score elevates simple scenes narrated on the both Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi. Anirudh’s musical tracks are already a hit and looked even more good on the screen.
Sathyan Sooryan’s photography is good and brings the rustic and rugged texture to the movie. Editing by Philomin Raj is not up to the mark as the film has some many unwanted scenes in it due to which the runtime has extended.
Coming to the direction, young filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj, he tried his best to present the film which has a thin and regular storyline by incorporating fans moments at regular intervals. But Lokesh Kanagaraj’s screenplay is quite a disappointing one as it runs on a regular template.
If not story, Lokesh Kanagaraj would have focused on writing a better screenplay to make things even more appealing.
On an overview, Master is a regular mass flick which has some fan moments here and there. But on the flip side, lack of freshness in the storyline and regular template makes Master not so impressive watch for the general audience during the festival season.
