Due to the coronavirus pandemic, several films releases across industries had to be postponed. The delay happened owing to the shoots stalled or production delay or due to theatres being closed down in the wake of the outbreak. The entertainment industry had a huge hit in 2020.

Movie Review - Lokesh Kanagaraj's latest, Master, is an unusual movie. It gives a good backstory to the villain, played by Vijay Sethupathi, even dedicating the first fifteen minutes of the film for the same. What's more, Sethupathi's Bhavani is also shown to be a religious person in a secular way, wearing amulets of three different religions, 'cos as he claims, he isn't sure which God can come to his help. On the other hand, the hero, Thalapathy Vijay's JD is a persistent alcoholic. He doesn't come with a backstory, which is anyway explained through one throwaway line and acts often irresponsible. In that way, Master is definitely an unusual movie for its genre.
