Thalapathy Vijay’s highly anticipated Master has finally released today (January 13) and the film is off to a fantastic opening at the box office. The shows are already full for the next 5 days and it has turned to be an important film for the revival of theatrical business which was affected due to the global pandemic. The fans are enjoying the scenes involving Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi and their combination sequences have set the screens on fire. Director Lokesh Kanagaraj is being praised by the fans for showcasing a newer version of Vijay. The first shows of Master in Chennai began at 4 AM in several theatres.

To know the audience’s response and live report, director Lokesh Kanagaraj, Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, and others from the Master team visited Rohini Silver Screens theatre, this morning. The Master team got a phenomenal reception from the fans as they were enjoying every single scene. After coming out of the theatre, Lokesh Kanagaraj was asked to share a few words about watching his film along with the fans for the first time.

Talking to the press and media, Lokesh Kanagaraj said, “I am really happy and moved, seeing this reception for the film. It is heartening to see people enjoying the movie with cheers. Let everyone watch the film and let me then comment more on it. I just have one request to the fans and audience. It would be nice and good if social distancing is maintained during the shows. Wear the masks and sanitize your hands,”. There was absolutely no social distancing or safety measures in the FDFS shows of Master and it looks like that has come as a matter of concern for the young filmmaker. It is indeed important to take the safety precautions during the show.

Lokesh Kanagaraj has already become one of the most sought-after directors in Tamil cinema and his next outing will be with Kamal Haasan. Lokesh’s journey in the last 4 years has been phenomenal and he has become a solid talent to watch out for. Lokesh’s film with Kamal Haasan is titled Vikram and it has music scored by Anirudh. The shooting of Vikram is expected to begin in the next few weeks. Wishes are pouring in for Lokesh Kanagaraj and team on the release of Master and we also hope that they enjoy this moment of success.
