Masterpiece Review & Rating


Mammootty's much-anticipated movie Masterpiece directed by Ajay Vasudev of Rajadhi Raja fame hit theatres today putting an end to the long wait. Set in the backdrop of a campus, the movie is touted to be stylish entertainer written by Uday Krishna. Mammootty appears as Professor Edward Livingston who newly joins the college with a mission to bring some discipline and peace to the otherwise unsettled campus. Poonam Bajwa, Salim Kumar, Santhosh Pandit, Mukesh, Unni Mukundan and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar handles other prominent roles in the movie.

The major highlight of the movie is Mammootty and his stunning look. While it should be said that the megastar has nailed his character with a swag, there is nothing much for him to do other than looking holding himself dashing, even in the action sequences. Varalaxmi, Unni Mukundan, and Shajohn have done their police roles neatly while Salim Kumar, Mukesh, Maqbool, Poonam Bajwa, Mahima Nambiar, Gokul Suresh and rest of the cast has come up with a justifiable performance. In short, despite having a stellar cast, Masterpiece fails to offer any stunning performances.

If director Ajay Vasudev's only intention was to give the hardcore Mammootty fans adrenaline rush and goosebumps from time to time throughout the movie, one can see that he has succeeded in it to one hundred percent. Except for that, his lack of ambition or the over excess of it, has left Masterpiece a mediocre venture sans any merit. Udhay Krishna, the writer of blockbuster Pulimurugan has also limited his brilliance to penning down an average script with essential ingredients of a mass entertainer. The much-boasted actions sequence in the movie goes a way too overboard at times just to keep the Mammootty fans excited. While cinematography and the editing department of the movie are just fine, the music and the background scores composed by Deepak Dev turns out to be a lackluster and drab affair.

Final Verdict: Masterpiece is indeed mass entertainer made with Mammootty fans in mind. And so, the movie has very little to offer to anybody else looking for a hearty-watch.

Masterpiece Preview

What Is It About?

Masterpiece, directed by 'Rajadhiraja fame Ajay Vasudev, is a stylish mass entertainer set against the backdrop of a campus. Mammootty appears in the lead role of the movie as handsome and strict English professor Edward Livingston who joins his alma mater with a mission of bringing discipline among the student and making it a friendly campus to one and all. Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar, Poonam Bajwa, Mahima Nambiar, Salim Kumar, Santhosh Pandit, Unni Mukundan, Mukesh and Gokul Suresh handle other prominent roles in the movie. 

What To Expect?

  • Mammootty at his charming, stunning best

The glimpses of Mammootty from the teaser and trailer was enough to set the anticipations for Masterpiece sky high. The actor is seen his charming, stunning best, no older than his young students, at least in the looks. And from the looks of it, Masterpiece has all the chances to work wonders at the box office and make it to the list of megastar's blockbusters. 

  • Another entertainer from Ajay Vasudev 

Ajay Vasudev's previous movie with Rajadhiraja which also starred Mammootty in the lead was a decent film on the lines of a mass entertainer. As the director once again teams with the megastar, with a story that has the potential to please the mass, movie buffs are anticipating yet another powerhouse movie. And going by the teaser and trailer of Masterpiece, it is indeed one.

  • Three Leading Ladies

Masterpiece has leading actresses in the pivotal roles and it is one of the major highlights of the movie. While Mahima Nambiar will be seen as a college student, Poonam Bajwa is playing the part of a college lecturer and Varalaxmi is seen in a khaki avatar. 

  • A Stellar Cast 

The movie features a stellar cast including Salim Kumar, Santhosh Pandit, Unni Mukundan, Gokul Suresh, Mukesh, Kalabhavan Shajohn and many others. Or to say it in others words, one can definitely look forward to some dashing performance, stunt, and humor. 

  • Music composed by Deepak Dev

Deepak Dev is indeed one of the best music director's we have got. His tunes for Masterpiece have already caught the attention of music lovers. And the movie seems to have more songs in store.
