#MassuEngiraMasilamani-A concept that is wrongly narrated and lost in translation to screen.
First of all, this movie could have been much better without the need of two heroines, mindless comedy scenes, unnecessary song sequences and poor CG. The factors that work in the movie are a few emotional moments and of course Suriya. Though he puts his soul into the two characters he performs, we can only wish that he chooses better scripts for his persona.
Samuthirakani has done a commendable job as a villain. But too many actors appear as cameos which spoils the entire setting of the plot. Limited number of characters (read ghosts) could have made the screenplay tighter. Though the song Piravi is heart-touching, you can feel that it is forced into the script as a realization sequence for Suriya.
Nayanthara’s role proves that she has been roped in this movie just for the sake of having a heroine. Even Pranitha’s role could have been avoided by having a different flashback for the character Sakthi. Premgi Amaren as Suriya’s hilarious friend only adds to the weariness of the film. Parthepan is used as a doll to evoke unnecessary guffaws from the audience.
Director Venkat Prabhu fails to deliver the punch that he produced in movies like Chennai-28, Saroja and Mankatha. Though the thought process behind the movie is actually good, he could have narrated it well.
