Master Storyline

Master is an action film from India about a professor, JD, who is sent to teach at a juvenile reform school for three months. He clashes with an unscrupulous man, Bhavani, who controls the school's young inmates to cover up his own criminal activities.

An unruly college professor, JD is forced into a teaching role at a juvenile facility. Soon he locks horns with Bhavani, a ruthless gangster who mercilessly exploits the young criminals for his survival. Though they are two sides of the same coin, can JD slay his inner demons and bring down an invincible Bhavani?

Master About

Like any good filmmaker, Lokesh Kanagaraj knows that it takes a fearsome antagonist to turn a protagonist into a hero. This is why he begins Master by establishing the myth of his antagonist Bhavani (Vijay Sethupathi).

A teenager who is sent to an observation home by the powerful men who had killed his family, Bhavani becomes the very thing that the system doesn't want juveniles to become – a ruthless monster. In one scene, Lokesh even see shows him sporting horns! And he exploits the very system that has made him so, by using juveniles as pawns to establish his criminal enterprise.

This sets up the stage nicely for his protagonist JD (Vijay) to make his entrance. In fact, in classic masala movie fashion, JD's introduction comes right after a character wonders if they would be able to get a brave man to fix things and save the boys from a life of crime.


Master is a Tamil action-thriller movie, written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Kaithi fame, and produced by Xavier Britto, under the banner XB Film Creators.
