A film that continues to be the talk of the town, 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Master released worldwide in theatres as a grand Pongal treat last month, has turned out to be one of the biggest box office blockbusters in the superstar's glorious career. The mass masala action entertainer directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj under Xavier Britto's XB Film Creators banner in association with Lalit Kumar's 7 Screen Studios and featuring music by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander also featured 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist, with his stunning antics alongside an electrifying Vijay turning out to be the biggest USPs for Master, which is nearing 50 days in its theatrical run. 

Master, which subsequently began streaming on Amazon Prime Video from January 29, two weeks after the film was released in theatres, has overcome all odds to emerge triumphant at the box office, with the film still going strong in many theatres. With Master continuing to witness a significant turnout in cinema halls, it has now been revealed that the film has broken the Tamil Nadu theatrical share record that was being held by the pan-Indian blockbuster Baahubali 2, which had Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nassar under SS Rajamouli's direction. Master is now the all-time number one Tamil film with the highest theatrical share in the State, which is a staggering feat considering the odds the film had to overcome in its path to be released in theatres. Meyaadha Maan and Aadai director Rathna Kumar, who served as one of the screenwriters on Master along with Lokesh Kanagaraj and Pon Parthiban, acknowledged a tweet on Twitter about the film reaching this latest big milestone in its trade.

Prior to Master's arrival in theatres, there was the fear of the pandemic, speculations of a direct OTT release, including leaked videos just days before the film hit screens. The Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi starrer has beaten all expectations to create this new landmark feat, with the film also thereafter leading the way for other actors, directors and production houses across the country to subsequently confidently take the step forward in announcing release dates for their ventures. The success story of Master is no doubt one that will be spoken for a long time for the manner in which it stood the test of time and came out on top to blow the expectations of fans and critics alike.
