Haricharan Pudipeddi | Hindustan Times: - | 7/10
Vijay delivers a largely entertaining star vehicle. Apart from the terrific screen presence of the two leads, Anirudh Ravichander’s music is one of the reasons why Master, warrants a visit to the theatre ... Full Review

M Suganth | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The final confrontation between the two actors has a couple of rousing moments, helping end the film on a high note ... Full Review

The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 6/10
There are some redeeming ideas in Master that shows Lokesh Kanagaraj's real talent as a storyteller. Especially, the way he has written his hero and the antagonist ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: - | 5.5/10
Many strengths, yet, not remarkable. To be fair to director Lokesh Kanagaraj though, he does seem to have put in a shift to try and offer creative doses of Vijay intoxication in this film ... Full Review

News18: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Anirudh Ravichander’s foot-tapping music is the legacy Master will leave behind. It’s possible for a film to entertain without being good, Master is an example ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Flaws And All, Lokesh Kanagaraj Delivers A Classy “Mass” Movie. There's one part of us waiting to see "A Lokesh Kanagaraj Film". There's another part of us waiting for "A Vijay Entertainer". The film is a not-bad balance ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
But with Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi squaring off in a rousing thriller, and Kanagaraj orchestrating the duet with a sense of proportion that enables him to apportion equal importance to the two actors, the film tides over the bumps without turning turtle ... Full Review

Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Master is not the best or most perfect, but it is a entertaining. It has the masala (and don’t interpret no-brainer when I say this). You will have to have a suspension of disbelief, but then once Vijays begin the action, they sell it in the package, just like the guy on the window gave me a mask with the ticket! Watch Master ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 4/10
Is a bit drag and flab, Lokesh gets too aspirational in the second half, especially with regard to action scenes. Some of it, like the lorry chase sequences, leaves a jarring effect ... Full Review 3/5 | 6/10
Style, Swag, Story – Vijay’s Film Has Everything Except Better Role For The Heroine ... Full Review

Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
Both actors put in power-packed performances. The climax scene is outstanding, when Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi take the fight sequence to another level ... Full Review

Gulte: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Master would have worked if the director focused on getting the emotions right. Too much emphasis on Vijay’s style and his political aspirations may work for fans, but others wouldn’t connect much with the hero ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.75/5 | 5.5/10
Master does not live up to the hype and ends as a passable action entertainer. All those who go in wanting to see the star hero and villain tug of war will be disappointed ... Full Review

Mirchi9: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Routine Mass Entertainer With Exhaustive Length ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3/5 | 6/10
Thalapathy Vijay has delivered one of his most expressive and moving performances in recent times. While we all know volumes about the talent that Vijay Sethupathi possesses, Arjun Das is a revelation as Das ... Full Review 3/5 | 6/10
On the whole, Master is a routine commercial entertainer with a good social message. Watch it for the performance of Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi ... Full Review

Telugu360: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Master is a wasted attempt with a regular commercial template that falls short of the expectations. Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi and Anirudh’s terrific background score are the only saviors ... Full Review

Great Andhra: - | 5/10
Lacks the Desired Effect. ‘Master’ is more of Vijay’s movie than a director’s film. It has style and swag but nothing else ... Full Review

Galatta: 3/5 | 6/10
Philomin Raj could have edited out certain sequences in the edit table as the film looks a bit too long. Master is definitely a film that could have been interestingly told in 2.5 hours, Master can definitely be watched for the highly enjoyable performances of Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi! ... Full Review

Nettv4u: 3.25/5 | 6.5/10
The Ultimate show stealer is Vijay Sethupathi. Whether it is the look or body language or dialogue delivery, this guy pulled the attention of the entire audience and impressed them ... Full Review

Only Kollywood: 3/5 | 6/10
Yet, Master struggles with its pacing issues and the lack of exciting screenplay in the second half, only to turn things around in the final half an hour. The film is knit together as a big fat tale of cat and mouse, and it works out to an extent despite its flaws ... Full Review

FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Master is unfortunately the kind of film that concerns itself with too many things but can hardly focus on any of it beyond adorning the hero, Vijay ... Full Review

India Today: 3/5 | 6/10
A decent commercial entertainer bogged down by its runtime. Despite that, Vijay fans will not be disappointed ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: - | 6/10
An exhaustive yet unique Vijay movie. Lokesh does well to disturb the macho facade of Vijay ... Full Review

Anna Smith | Deadline: - | 6/10
Master may deliver its lessons with a heavy hand, but it’s got the charisma to see you through ... Full Review

Sify: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Despite its pace issues and the length, ‘JD’ Vijay and ‘Bhavani’ Vijay make it worthwhile ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Finally, Master makes way for a visual treat for the die-hard fans of Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi! Experience this one for the undeniable star power of the two Tamil megastars ... Full Review

Movie Crow: 2.75/5 | 5.5/10
Master required more from a creator like Lokesh who gave us Kaithi. Nevertheless, a functional attempt at making a Vijay film with some level of an uncommon treatment ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 8/10
Vijay shines in this entertaining albeit overlong star vehicle. Master is another feather in Lokesh Kanagaraj's cap even if the film unapologetically panders to Vijay’s fans ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 3/5 | 6/10
We can hope Master to be the pioneer of this decade in re-structuring the sheer on-screen admiration of A level superstars. Thanks to Lokesh Kanagaraj for the initiative ... Full Review

India Glitz: 2.75/5 | 6/10
Go for this one for the terrific performances from Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi and Anirudh's vibrant music ... Full Review

IB Times: - | 7/10
Film is perfect blend of class and mass. Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, and Arjun Dass stole the show in Master with their amazing performance and scintillating screen presence ... Full Review

The News Minute: 3/5 | 6/10
An entertaining first half let down by a dragging second. Actors Vijay and Vijay Sethupathy shoulder an action packed movie with a meandering and predictable screenplay ... Full Review

Now Running: 3/5 | 6/10
Lokesh Kanagaraj humanizes Vijay's character in Master. Vijay does not play a messiah in the film. That he has some personal demons make the character interesting. And, that Kanagaraj is not afraid of deviating slightly from commercial film formulas make Master worth watching, despite its flaws ... Full Review
