Masooda Movie : Artists, Technicians Review

Masooda's story written and directed by Sai Kiran is a typical horror thriller. Sai Kiran on debut dared to be different and came up with a horror thriller unlike selecting a safe genre like a romantic entertainer. Masooda's story narrated by Sai Kiran starts off in an interesting manner with the happenings in Chittoor during 89 and shifts to the developments in Hyderabad in 99. After the interesting and thrilling elements mixed with horror, the pace in the story dips with the romantic aspects taking center stage. But after ten or fifteen minutes, the narration picks pace with the developments in Sangeeta's house. Though the narration is slow, Sai Kiran manages to keep the viewers glued with thrilling elements and the first half ends with an interesting interval bang.

The second half starts with the investigation of the whereabouts of Masooda and the screenplay is even. Sai Kiran mixed the narration with the right amount of emotions, investigation elements, and also horror elements to give a thrilling feeling. The film ends on a predictable note with the lead to the sequel. Dialogues are good.

Thiruveer made an impact with his performance. He showed variations as a fearful person and then showed good feelings as a helping neighbor and by showing the courage to save the neighbor in trouble. Sangeetha on comeback played the role of a worried mother, and neighbor who fights to save her daughter singlehandedly without depending on anyone. Subhalekha Sudhakar and Satyam Rajesh performed well in the roles of Peer Baba and Alauddin.  Akhila Ram and Bandhavi Sridhar performed well in the roles of Nazia and others.

Prashant Vihari's songs are situational and his background music made a thumping impact. The background music made the viewers get attached to the film and the proceedings. The cinematography of Nagesh Bannell is good and showed the happenings, elevating the thrill factor to the core while showing the possession of Masooda and how people try to drive away the evil force. Jesvin Babu's editing could have been even more crispy as the story dragged and the pace dipped with a few unnecessary scenes. Production values are good.

Masooda Movie : Rating Analysis

Sai Kiran should be complimented for touching the horror genre with Masooda. He should be appreciated for not deviating from the horror genre by including item songs, romantic elements, and hilarious elements for commercial angles. Though the story and narration are predictable and the horror happenings could be guessed easily, Sai Kiaran made it interesting with his screenplay and direction. The entire cast and crew strove hard to come up with a quality output but the lack of renowned names in the cast and crew impacted the film in a big way. Had Sai Kiran done away with the predictability and included a few more unexpected twists and turns, Masooda could have created a sensation. Altogether Masooda is an interesting horror thriller. Considering all these aspects Cinejosh goes with a 2.5 rating for Masooda.
