Synopsis: The brother of a rich landlord falls in love with a lower caste girl but his haughty sister-in-law murders him. The girl, who is pregnant with his child, is made an outcast and dies during childbirth only to return as a ghost and haunt the village.

Review: Masaani is a throwback to a certain era in Tamil cinema, a time when we had panchayat scenes under the banyan tree, arrogant rich women with heavily built henchman, lovers taking their romance to the next stage after getting drenched in rain, ghosts taking revenge, et al. It is a genre that Ramanarayanan had made his own in the late 90s with his various Amman films. Taking such a dated concept, directors Padmaraja and LGR have created a film that feels redundant and terribly dull. Even the supernatural serials that you have on TV have some bit of tension which is sorely lacking here.

The film doesn't exactly plumb the depths of bad filmmaking, for the filmmakers seem to know the elements this kind of film needs — a cursed village, a wronged woman, a status conscious antagonist, a young man who can redeem the people, his comic sidekick and even a Malayali tantric. But all these are brought together sloppily (tacky graphics, annoying comedy, hammy performances despite the presence of veterans like Y Gee Mahendra and Sarath Babu) and the mediocrity that permeates the whole enterprise makes it a frustrating watch. Ramki, for whom the film marks a return to the big screen, must be regretting his decision while Roja should rank among the tamest on screen villains. You only feel sorry for Iniya as the seriousness with which she performs her role is totally out of place with the movie.
