Watchable Family Entertainer
31 May 2015 | by crazyrajuSee all my reviews

Plot Line : Things get wrong for a conman when he gets deceived by a ghost.

Shortly, "Masss" is totally a one man show performance delivered by Suriya. He is simply electrifying throughout the film. It is Suriya who engages the audience till the climax even though the script is half baked.

But director Venkat Prabhu deserves a applause for trying out a different dimension in Tamil Cinema. Overall, the director could have concentrated more on the screenplay part.

There are equal number of pros and cons in this film. Suriya's performance, Visuals, Twists and Background score are the major positives of the film. The negative part of the film is illogical scenes and old run of the mill concept which was followed in the second half of the film.

The content of the film is mainly intended for kids and family audience. Overall, forget the logics and take your family out to theaters. It could be a watchable entertainer for you.
