In all, the movie is a good watch for this late summer to quell your thirst with laughs and occasional suprises.

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. Suriya's dialogue delivery and screen presence catapults the movie forward, to quote the scene when he feels for his friend Premji in front of Nayanthara is hilarious. (more)

Massu Engira Masilamani entertains

The film is a fantasy supernatural thriller with all the twists and turns, suspense, action and fun that we have come to expect from a Venkat Prabhu film. Venkat Prabhu keeps the momentum going right from the opening scene. There is, however, a lot of chaos, until he decides to reveal it all at the very end. (more)
