What Master has achieved in the pandemic times is fantastic. Not just it has stormed the Box Office worldwide but it has put the audience’s faith back in the theatre-experience of a film. Further, it has also proved the viewers’ loyalty to its superstar Thalapathy Vijay. Despite its release on an OTT platform, Master continues to do a fabulous run at the Box Office, especially in Tamil Nadu which has alone garnered over Rs 110 crore for the film.

The film is directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj who has portrayed Vijay as the carefree professor named JD who changes himself for the better when a sudden incident shocks him and he decides to fight for the good. Vijay Sethupathi plays the role of Bhavani, the dreaded villain, and Malavika Mohanan plays Vijay’s love interest.
