Movie Verdict

The horror genre used to be one of the most intriguing and thrilling, but it has since disappeared amid audience demands for new stories, making it difficult to revive it. However, Masooda is unquestionably not a typical horror story; although the movie initially seems ordinary, its premise and mood gradually draw you into Masooda’s world and force you to embark on a journey with him.

The first half featured an intriguing drama in which Gopi and Sangeetha attempted to treat Nazia’s condition using both medication and Peer Baba; those scenes were quite captivating, and the tension kept viewers interested throughout the first half and piqued their interest in the second half, which begins intriguingly by revealing all the layers and gradually revealing the twists makes the movie interesting and keeps you glued to your seat.

After a long break, Sangitha did an excellent job playing the science teacher and innocent mother. Tiruveer is cool as usual as Gopi, and his subtle performance helps to make the character believable. Kavya Kalyan Ram is only okay because she doesn’t have much of a role to play, but the rest of the cast did a good job.

Sai Kiran attempted to develop a unique horror movie, and he succeeded in making the best horror thriller. His handling of the movie draws the viewer into the narrative, and he successfully conveys emotion through his narration.

Despite having a small budget, Masooda is technically excellent. Prashanth R. Vihari did a fantastic job creating eerie music with various instruments, Nagesh Banell did a great job with the cinematography, and the rest of the team fared well.

Overall, Masooda is one of the best contemporary horror movies.
