Masss (Mass) Review
As expected, Suriya walks away with all the appreciations as he has once again delivered. Special efforts taken by him to get his Ceylon slang right coupled with his near-perfect body language is praiseworthy.
Venkat Prabhu's unique writing and Yuvan's powerful background score. While the director keeps us guessing throughout with lots of twists and turns, Yuvan yet again proves he usually reserves his best for Venkat Prabhu movies.
Overall View: Thanks to Suriya's brilliant performance and Venkat Prabhu's intriguing story telling ability, Masss will surely be enjoyed by the masses albeit poor VFX hindering the quality of the movie.
Suriya carries the movie on his strong shoulders and the kind of energy and youthful charm that he exudes is incredible. He plays a street smart con-man and even after the entry of the supernatural elements, a consistency is maintained in his character graph and the director deserves a pat on his back.
It has the expected Venkat Prabhu elements, the crowd-pleasing supernatural factors treated in a slightly different way and of course Suriya in all his glory.
Verdict: A well-timed Sixer from Venkat Prabhu and Suriya.
Horror Comedy is quite an interesting concept and now it’s not far away from being deemed as “Done and dusted”, well here is VP with a new trick up his sleeve. Considering the genre of the movie, the lesser you know its better.
Suriya’s characterization as Masss the hero and as a Srilankan Tamilian is commendable, as with all of VP’s movies, he brings out the best out of his heroes.
Verdict : In all, the movie is a good watch for this late summer to quench your thirst with laughs and occasional surprises.
