How Is “Master” ?? Check Out The Review & Reactions

The most awaited Vijay’s “Master” released on theatres in Tamil nadu today and the fans of Tamil cinema are celebrating the biggest event with extreme happiness as they are witnessing a proper mainstream feature film of a top tier Tamil actor after nearly one long year. Reviews and reactions for the Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi starrer are pouring in Internet from all the directions from fans and celebrities.

“Master” was supposed to release during April month of 2020 and got postponed due to COVID 19 outbreak. Now, after the makers decided to release the film on 13th of January ahead of the Pongal festival, the film got released in theatres with highest expectations. The star studded high budget action thriller was directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of “Maanagaram” and “Kaithi” fame.

The film which shows Vijay as an alcoholic professor, contains Vijay Sethupathi, Arjun Das and Malavika Mohanan as a gangster, henchman and a college professor respectively. Locking horns with John Durairaj played by actor Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi who represented Bhavani, comes as a ruthless killer who uses juveniles as his pawns to establish his criminal enterprise.

When the protagonist is being loved by his students for his good heart and swag, naturally the college management wants to get rid of him. Circumstances lead him to become a teacher in an observation home where Bhavani is using the kids for his business. The entire second half lies on whether JD managed to save the children from Bhavani and his men or not.

The typical Tamil cinema cat and mouse action thriller sees a new age filmmaker trying his hand at mainstream commercial cinema for the first time in his career by having a mass hero in the lead. Though the film would satisfy a fan of actor Vijay, it fails to create the thrill which is being attempted in the 179 minute long feature throughout.

The very usual intermission and the familiar trope of the villain gang going after the hero’s loved ones are indeed boring. The scene where Vijay and Andrea wielding bow and arrows doesn’t offers any thrill as we very well know that the hero is going to win the battle at the end. Many supporting characters which doesn’t have proper arcs in the film makes us wonder whether the film was made by Lokesh or Atlee.

However, the presentation is appealing and the message conveyed in the film doesn’t sounded preachy which is one of the biggest positives of the film. As usual Vijay Sethupathi wins the audience with his “devil may care” attitude. The aura created by Vijay whenever he appears on screen and his performance in the climax fight were top notch which will be a treat to the fans of him.
