Having said that, here are top 10 reasons(in the slides below) why you should watch this film in theatres.
Suriya In Horror Comedy For The First Time
Surya has done films in many genre but there are many genres that is left unexplored by him and horror comedy is good for a start. Move over that stern looking Suriya and get ready to witness something light and enjoyable.
Suriya-Venkat Prabhu Combo
If Suriya is a total professional, Venkat is a happy-go-lucky person and in Masss, one would expect a classy mix of professionalism and the much liked carefree ride. Interestingly, both these gentlemen have ventured into this film after facing losses in their previous movies and would dearly like to deliver a hit through Masss.
Impressive Star Cast
Masss' casting is truly impressive. Sample this; Suriya, Nayantara, Parthiban, Samuthirakani, Riyaz Khan, Karunas and the list just goes on. With such talented performers on board, there is little doubt that the film will have something to offer for everyone.
Great BGM Promised
Venkat Prabhu has been constantly stressing on one point, Yuvan's background score in Masss. Remember his work in Mankatha? Well, according to Venkat, Masss might just overtake Mankatha when it comes to the BGM. If it does, it has to be a pretty good background score.
Suriya's Role A Mystery
It is clear that Suriya plays a dual role, but what's not clear is his characterization in the film. Going by the trailer, is he a vampire? Or a ghost hunter? Could he be a ghost himself or the one who helps spirits to fulfill their dreams in order to attain salvation? Many such questions loom over his character in the film.
Good Technical Crew
We spoke about Yuvan Shankar Raja, but what about guys like Praveen KL, one of the most happening editors in the Kollywood circle right now, and RD Rajasekhar, the cinematographer who is known for his works like Billa 2 and Ghajini.
Suriya As 'Eezha Tamizhan'
Here is another facet Suriya hasn't tried before, the role of a Sri Lankan Tamil. Venkat Prabhu recently announced that one of the roles Suriya would be emulating in the film is that of a 'eezha tamil'. It should be fascinating to see if Suriya has mastered the accent of Sri Lankan Tamil.
Treat For Suriya Fans
If you are a Suriya fan, then you should definitely be watching this movie for it promises to offer so many things for all Suriya fans. Also the fact that the Perazhagan actor is back on the big screen after almost a year should catalyze the need to watch this flick.
Masss Exclusively For Kids
Venkat Prabhu has promised that Masss has been made exclusively for kids as he was upset with the fact that kids couldn't watch his movie Goa as it was given a 'A' certificate from CBFC. Masss, according to its director will have no smoking scenes and very less drinking scenes.
End Of The Holiday Season
Holiday season is coming to an end with this weekend and is there a better way to end it than watching a horror comedy flick that promises so much in theatres?
