A turbulent failure ; works only as a mass entertainer
26 December 2017 | by CobertNeedeSee all my reviews

Masterpiece was and is one of the most waited films of this year. Its lead cast comprising of Mammootty, Unni Mukundan, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Poonam Bajwa, a newcomer. The film also houses many young stars who are stuggling to find a place in Malayalam cinema, so kudos to the casting director for such a impressive array of young talents.

The film was touted as a mass, action thriller early on itself. After Rajadhiraja, a miserable failure from Ajai Vasudev, comes Masterpiece. It puts itself against a background of a college, where students are split into several factions. A subsequent crime and its events follow up the film's plot. The acting was commendable by the lead cast, although the quirky handling of the camera made it look kind of ugly. The direction is in all praise for a mass film, which Ajai handled perfectly.

If not titled and promoted as a mass entertainer, Masterpiece would have been a stunning failure. Aside from Mammootty's impressive performance, coupled with some really good fight scenes, Masterpiece falls flat at every department. Unni Mukundan, was not a surprise casting since he is known for his excellence in action roles and scenes.

The entire film hangs on the climax, which may come surprising for many.

Rating - 3.75 / 10.0
