Massu Engira Masilamani Movie Review
– A Movie for Die-Hard Suriya Fans
Massu Engira Masilamani by Venkat Prabhu is an adventure ride into the world of ghosts and a fun movie at that, at least to the most extent. It's an adequate movie for Suriya fans as there's not one but two of them, there's Nayanthara and a whole lot of other cast. It's more thriller than horror genre.

- • Suriya's secondary role as a ghost
- • Different take on the horror genre
- • Music and background score by Yuvan Shankar Raja
- • Crisp run time

- • Familiar storyline
A local con man Suriya after an accident acquires the power to see and talk to ghosts. He teams up with a bunch of them to earn money but gets a surprise visit from another ghost that looks exactly like him. The ride begins from then on!The Cast
Suriya is easily at his best, especially in the role of a ghost and easily carries the script with his mass demeanor. Nayanthara has very little role to play while Premji has a much meatier role as usual. The film has a huge cast including Sreeman, Karunas, Samuthirakani among others but Parthipan is the one who manages to attract the audience.The Team
Venkat Prabhu has come out of his usual one liner scripts to something more complicated and he has done a decent job. The movie has good cinematography with colorful lightings while music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is good in parts. The screenplay is dragging at times and the fantasy factor falls into a very clichéd story towards the climax. But, it should probably entertain audience looking for light, enjoyable fun.
Bottom line – Action packed thriller made better by Suriya's presence.
