Masters is a 2012 Malayalam action thriller film directed by Johny Antony and starring Prithviraj, Mukesh and Sasikumar in the lead roles.[1]

Plot[edit]

Milan Paul and Sriramakrishnan are best friends who have been together since college. The intensity of their friendship has not faded though the carefree days of college have long past gone. Now Sree is an ASP (Assistant Superintendent of Police) of Kottayam and Milan is a renowned reporter in the same city. Though in different fields both are in highly responsible jobs. In effect, both of them use their friendship to fulfill their respective social responsibilities. Hot-tempered and impulsive Sree usually ends up in some sort of trouble and is always saved by Milan in the nick of the time. Consequently, Milan has to deal with physical and mental torture from Sree's enemies but Sree reciprocates by saving Milan. Things were going on just fine when out of the blue, a horrendous incident shocks the city. A series of suicide-murders happen and what bewilders the Police is the lack of any apparent reason for the murderers to kill the victims. In many cases the murderers have not met the victims ever before the incident. The two friends try to unravel the mystery behind it and discover some bewildering and chilling truths.

The film started its shooting in August 2011 at Kottayam, Kerala.[3] The soundtrack is scored by Gopi Sundar along with lyrics by Shibu Chakravarthi. Masters is produced under the banner of Sincere Cinemas by B. Sarath Chandran and distributed by Seven Arts International.

Reception[edit]

The Movie turned out to tremondous positive response all over after the release. Johny Antony's difference in making was well appreciated by the audience rather he done masala comedy movies before.Scripting of the film was well appreciated most because for a long time no one has done a police story which has a base of campus and friendship. Jinu Abraham's make over to a campus friendship story to an investigation story was outstanding.Prithviraj done an excellent job as a police officer.

  • Nowrunning gave the film a rating of 3/5 stars, and stated "The film has all the makings of a commercial potboiler that should see it sailing smoothly through the box office seas for a while. Way too superior to the generic thrillers being churned out by the dozen, 'Masters' is a cool chiller for this summer, that delivers its jolt moments with aplomb." [4]
  • Metromatinee rated the film as "watchable" and praised that "the lead actors look refreshingly different and capable of carrying the movie on their shoulders. The story and the dialogues are lively and thrilled at some level, background music is peppy, action scenes are appropriate and the whole package will appeal to the viewers of all ages. On the whole 'Masters' has blended well to make a neat racy entertainer".[5]
  • Theater Balcony rated the film 3/5 stars(3|5) and commented that it is "a good one time watch, if you can just pass out the first half for some good performance, great climax and clever story in the second half. And I should love to tell, this may end up as one of the good police story in the recent times."[6]
