Masala Padam has an interesting plot. The movie starts off with an intention of teaching its audience the history of cinema and how it has evolved over the years.
Credible performances are delivered by Shiva whose depiction as a common man looks natural and Bobby Simha who has breezed through his character of a tough yet likeable goon.
Overall View: With an interesting plot and decent screenplay Masala Padam is an honest attempt. But it could've easily been a better flick had it been executed with much more care.
