Like many recent movies which had to undergo a title change in
the recent past, Suriya's upcoming film Masss too has faced
the same restriction, thanks to the tax exemption rules.
If a film doesn't have a Tamil title then it loses its
eligibility to enjoy tax exemption even if it clears the Censor
Board with a clean 'U' certificate.
Hence, revealing that Masss had to be rechristened,
Amaren has also spilled the beans about Suriya's character name
in the upcoming movie and the meaning of 'Masss', in context with
"Suriya's character name in the film is Massilamani and he will
be called as Masss by the locals and so we have named the film,
Masss Engira Massilamani", said the Goa actor.
Interestingly, Masss Engira Massilamani is the first
movie in Venkat Prabhu's career to have come out
of the CBFC chambers with a clean 'U'. All his previous movies were
either given a U/A or A certificates.
Looks like the film aims at wooing family audience and kids as
promised by the director Venkat Prabhu even before the project went
Masss Engira Massilamani has Parthiban, Samuthirakani, Jayaram,
Pranitha Subhash in prominent roles. It also houses two comedians
and a comedienne in Premji, Karunas and Vidyullekha Raman
With the movie all set to hit the screen this Friday(29th May
2015), it'll be interesting to see if Masss can live up to
its expectations. Stay locked for further updates.
