Masss / Massu Engira Masilamani (2015)
When ever a Venkat Prabhu’s movie releases, the expectations high to see variety with a bash of youthful energy, and the ace director this time has adopted the most successful genre in the recent times, yes, a horror comedy.
Massu Enkira Masilamani (Masss), directed by Venkat Prabhu and starring Suriya, Nayantara, Premgi Amaren, Pranitha and a host of other stars, is produced by KE Gnanavel Raja under the Studio Green banner.
Suriya essays two characters in the film, Masilamani or Massu, an ingenious conman, and a ghost called Shakti. Massu and his friend Jetli (Premgi) are small time crooks, make a living by planning elaborate schemes, cheating bad guys and escaping with their money in the Royapettah area.
Nayantara (Manini) is Suriya’s neighbour, who is working as a nurse at a hospital and is aiming to become a permanent employee there but needs a lot of money to bribe the dean. As Suriya and Premgi don’t earn much through their petty thievery, they resort to impersonating Customs employees and make off with a huge sum of money from a gang, which had stashed their cash aboard a ship.
When the gang comes to know that they have been duped by Suriya and Premgi, they set out to recover their money at any cost. In the ensuing chase, the car carrying Suriya and Premgi meets with an accident and the gang believes Suriya and Premgi to be dead.
However, the duo escape and after treatment for over a week, set off for their house. On reaching their house, Suriya starts experiencing paranormal activities in it and also finds that he is being followed by a gang.
Not knowing what is happening, Suriya is left confused and not everything around him seems to be normal. Suriya realizes he is able to see and communicate with dead people around him. They approach him with requests to fulfil their dying wishes. Initially, Massu misuses his power by making them terrorise innocent people and demanding money from them by pretending to drive them away.
There is a quite a bit of fun, with ghosts popping out from everywhere chasing after Massu. Karunas, Sriman and several others play the ghosts in the film. The film moves to the real story almost at the end of the first half. Making a dramatic entry is a very dead Shakti, seeking vengeance for the death of his loved ones.
Will Massu help Shakti? What happens to the stolen money? Will Nayantara be able to cement her job? Watch Masss to know…
