It takes months, sometimes a year to make a 3 hour long film. Please respect the hard work and the effort that goes into making a film, and kindly don’t share any leaked clips from #Master 🙏🏻 It’s coming to theatres near you in exactly 1 day 🙂— malavika mohanan (@MalavikaM_) January 11, 2021
Please don’t share the pirated clips of the film, to share in stealth a passionate work that is to be celebrated in all its glory signals a deeply flawed mindset. Kindly refrain from indulging in deeds that slight the hard work and dreams of hundreds of people. #MASTER https://t.co/YOHCNaTN6R— Mari Selvaraj (@mari_selvaraj) January 11, 2021

“Master” was supposed to release during April month of 2020 and got postponed due to COVID 19 outbreak. Now, the makers have decided to release the film on 13th of January ahead of the Pongal festival. As soon as the official announcement was made, Lokesh has been appearing in youtube channels to promote the movie and the promotional videos are being released in daily basis.
Regarding the film’s core idea, Lokesh said that he got inspired to do “Master” story after seeing an interesting character in his home down. “I just observed him for five minutes and got attracted with the nuances of his behaviour. When I inquired about him, his back drop was interesting” said Lokesh while talking about how he got inspired to do “Master” said Lokesh and added that the film is a straight forward action entertainer.
