Director Venkat Prabhu has come up with a novel idea to surprise the audience
Masss starring Suriya, Nayanthara, Pranitha Subash and Premgi Amaren has hit the screens today amidst massive fan frenzy. Directed by Venkat Prabhu, the film is touted to be a supernatural entertainer with typical elements of directors trademark style.
Our reviewer Subramanian Harikumar is reviewing the film right now. Here are his thoughts on the first half of the film:
The movie tells the story of a con man Massilamani aka Masss played by Suriya, who steals money along with his friend Jet played by Premgi Amaren. While trying to escape after a heist gone wrong, Masss and Jet meet with a car accident, post which Masss starts seeing ghosts in real life. After finding out that even his friend Jet is now a ghost, he forms a group of loitering ghosts to earn money by performing fake exorcisms and extorting money from scared rich people. Soon he meets a ghost called Sakthi, a Srilankan Tamil, also played by Suriya. Sakthi tells Masss to help him pull a heist of Rs 75 crore. Sakthi knowingly sabotages the plan and Masss ends up running over a Hawala king. It seems like Sakthi had an old grudge with him. Now we start to wonder what Sakthi's real intentions are. What plans does Sakthi have? Will he put Masss in trouble? We will know in second half.
Suriya plays the petty con man in style and pulls off stunts and comic scenes with ease. Premgi Amaren playing Suriya's side kick provides comic relief from time to time. Nayanthara had nothing to do in the film other than appearing as a damsel in distress. The story is unique and has all the elements to keep you hooked. The movie has enough comic punches to give you a few hearty laughs. The film at times becomes silly and it takes time for the main plot to kick in. There are few flaws here and there which can be overlooked thanks to novel story telling. Lets see how the second half unfolds.
