Synopsis/Plot : Master as we know, has Vijay playing John Durairaj, an alcoholic professor. His mannerisms are extremely different from all of his films and he happens to be the most liked teacher in his college. Parallely, there is another track featuring a young boy who is sent to juvenile jail for no fault of his. He eventually turns into an evil monster that supplies drugs to children and this amazing character (Bhavani) is played by Vijay Sethupathi. Master is the quest that links John and Bhavani and whether the children reform from this evil or not.

Master does have some atypical moments for fans but surely, required more finesse from a master creator who has set a benchmark
Lokesh and team have etched out some nice action sequences for Thalapathy's intro and a few other action blocks too, have decent dosage of action. In fact, one might think Vijay's acting in the first half as a drunkard professor is very convincing. Particularly, the way he adjusts his pants, his sle...(more)

Master scores well as a perfect commercial film that will satisfy Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi and Lokesh fans.
The film has a lot of Easter eggs and references to Hollywood songs, and also a few classic films such as Titanic, Premam etc. And all these are pretty much enjoyable. The only drawback is the slightly long second half, where the engagement takes a hit. However the brilliant action sequences, where ...(more)

Perfect entertainer for Pongal
This Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial pits Thalapathy Vijay against Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi and offers a largely engaging experience despite its 3 hours runtime. The core story is centered around a juvenile correction home, and how professor John Durairaj (JD) stops the evil Bhavani from further ...(more)

Only for Star heroes
Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is best at showcasing gritty crime dramas is not at his best. He has done justice to the stars and handled them well but his narration has clearly taken a beating. The film is quite predictable and has nothing new to showcase. (more)

Lacks the Desired Effect
Vijay oozes style in every frame. In a righteous and a bit mysterious role, he has pulled it off well. Even at the end, his 'flashback' remains a mystery but he has convincingly played this part. (more)

Savior of theater business
The writer-director has consciously avoided a backstory to the hero but it may have helped if there had been a strong one in place In the first half though nothing much happens at least there is momentum which is lost in the second half. For some reason the climax turns deliberately comical which ...(more)

Vijay And Vijay Sethupathi Make A Winning Combination

An entertaining first half let down by a dragging second
At several instances, the film leaves plot lines hanging and instead chooses to devote time to impress upon the audience the power of the hero and the 'mass' that he shoulders. What the director forgets, is that unlike in a Kaithi where the audience speculated over whether Karthi will make it out of...(more)

Average film from Lokesh.. A crude copy of Nammavar and Thimuru Pudichavan. No clarity in screenplay and songs are waste in general. Horrible BgM from Anirudh. (more)
Good entertainment first half really good second half good Vijay class in acting Vijay sethupathi mass in acting compare with vijay vjs character has more important than Vijay Definitely one time watchable but watch it again for vjs his performance was nailed it (more)
Vijay is too cool and stylish in this Avatar and also he gave equal space to vijay sethupathy who performed well (more)
Superb movie ,both thalapathy and sethupathi performance awesome (more)
The one line summary would be vijay sethupathy movie in which vijay has his own space to play. As described by Lokesh himself he planned for 50% Lokesh movie + 50% vijay movie. Whenever 50/50 is planned the result would be not as expected, this even applicable to hollywood say for example Justice le... (more)
Hugely disappointing film. Could have been better (more)
