Intelligence at it’s best!
Director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s upcoming film with Vijay has been making noise right from its inception. On New Year’s Eve, the makers released the first-look poster and the title as Master. Within no time, the poster went viral on social media and created many records.
The poster of Master is a blurred image of Vijay staring at the camera. Many guessed that the poster is the point of view of his opponent who would’ve gotten thrashed by him.
However, the poster designer Gopi Prasanna, mentioned in an interview online;
“But at the design table, I wondered if it needed a new layer. That is when I cracked the blurred effect idea. The blurred effect, in turn, is very close to the character. Once I pitched this idea, the entire team, including Lokesh and Vijay sir, became really excited. Epdi ipdi pudikiranga idea-va nu solli (How do you tap into such ideas?), they were really kicked,”
What will be do if it’s not for our designers!
Gopi Prasanna also assured that the blurriness in the poster has a deeper meaning to it which people will be able to decode once the other posters release.
“The blurriness is not there for the sake of it. It is very connected to the core of the movie. The audience also knows that there is something in the poster, but do not know the details. They will figure it out once the other characters are revealed,” added Gopi Prasanna.
The makers of Master are on a break now and will resume the shooting in a couple of days in Chennai. The next schedule will take place at a popular studio in Chennai for about two weeks. Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi will also be apart of this schedule.
Master is tipped to be a gangster story with Vijay essaying the role of a college professor. The film boasts a huge cast including Malavika Mohanan, Andrea Jeremiah, Shanthanu Bhagyaraj, Lintu Rony, Gouri Kishan, Ramya Subramanian and Soundarya Nandakumar in pivotal roles.
