PlotEdit

Masi (Nakul) is an orphan living in a lower middle class colony. With a heart of gold, he is a popular guy who takes up local issues, fights for them and is considered as a rowdy by those who don’t know him. Enter the heroine Divya (Sunaina), a rich upper middle class girl who is a dance instructor and with whom Masi falls in love at the first sight. But Divya shows aversion to his rowdisam and gets offended with his proposal. Masi doesn’t lose heart and attempts to win Divya's family by being a goody boy and dons another name, Mani. Except Divya, all are aware that both Mani and Masi is one person. Later when Divya finds out the truth, she gets into dilemma as whom she has to choose.

Bhoopathy (Pawan), the local corrupt Sub Inspector who is also behind Divya, is determined to flop the hero’s plans and seeks to uncover his disguise of Mani. He is always on look out to prove that Mani is none other than Masi, the rowdy. How Mani wins over Divya against all odds serves as the climax of the movie.

ReceptionEdit

Behindwoods wrote "Masilamani gives you an instant hangover of having watched too many movies over a very short period of time. The script feels like a medley-mash of movies released over the past decade. And it wouldn’t be possible for us name each of them since the list runs to pages."[3] Indiaglitz wrote "As said old wine in new bottle, SUN Pictures' 'Masilamani' definitely adheres to this quote. The movie reflects a mix of several masala flicks with a dash of refinement."[4]

Box officeEdit

Maasilamani was a commercial success at the box office grossing $2 million.[5]
