#Master is a superbly mounted star vehicle that has just the right mix of ingredients to work both as Vijay's film and Lokesh's as well. Mostly engaging despite the slightly over drawn second half. Apart from Thalapathy's effervescent screen presence, this is VJS'S show 🔥— Haricharan Pudipeddi (@pudiharicharan) January 13, 2021

Halfway through #Master. Thoroughly engaging half with all things falling into place. Superbly written by @Dir_Lokesh, who packs in loads of sequences that will make fans go amok. No dull moment. Lokesh keeps up his promise. Indeed, this is #ThalapathyVijay we've not seen before.— George (@VijayIsMyLife) January 13, 2021
While most of the people appreciated the Lokesh Kanagaraj-directorial, some even stated that the first half was terrific, but the second half was stretched and was average if compared to the first half. It has also been mentioned that Anirudh's score has brought life to the film and the performances are great. See the tweets here.
#Master : Terrific 1st half , followed by average 2nd half. Lokesh’s sparkled only at some parts, Anirudh’s score is life to the film, Vijay and VJS did a great job.— Aakashavaani (@TheAakashavaani) January 13, 2021
The 2nd half could’ve been better and at least 30 Mins could’ve been chopped. Overall it is a one time watch.
#Master - 3/5— Trendswood (@Trendswoodcom) January 13, 2021
Decent 1st Half & Average 2nd Half. Thalapathy & Makkal Selvan Performance Theriii. VJS Humor Works Well. Ani's BGM Topnotch. Some Lags In Both 1st Half & 2nd Half. Malavika 😑 Nadippe Varalaye. Metro, Jail & VJ-VJS Climax Fight 🔥🔥🔥Once Watchable.
