Even though Masaan is not a musical movie, you may appreciate how well the lyrics of songs gel with its heart-touching soundtracks; the movie is centered more on some serious social issues of small cities amid India’s rapid development.


Masaan’s music speaks for its theme and storyline while the music credit goes to Indian Ocean. 

Masaan as I mentioned earlier contains a story that speaks of the grave social issues that we easily over look. Think of a victim who may have suffered once or twice or few times while the after effects of the sufferings continue as long as the victim remains alive. A similar kind of incident happens with the female protagonist, Devi Pathak, Richa Chada whose sexual adventure in a hotel room costs her lifelong remorse and emotional turmoil. Devi’s story may speak about several such girls or couples whose love-making adventures are captured by the hidden cameras or forcefully captured and later such videos go viral as MMS clips. It does not even take a day to ruin lives. Has the world ever thought of the after-life of such victims? Devi Pathak (Richa Chada) very well justifies the character of such victim.

The aftermath of her MMS scandal not only ruins her life but also ruins the reputation of her father, a Sanskrit teacher. Due to act caught the entire family pays the cost, His father has to leave her job, got blackmailed by a bad-ass cop and got compelled to adopt a livelihood by selling after-cremation ritual offerings. Devi’s father resorts to such extremes just to arrange money for the cop who constantly blackmails.


On the other side Masaan goes with a love story between Shaalu Gupta (Shweta Tripathi), an upper-caste girl and Deepak Kumar (Vicky Kaushal), a lower-caste boy. Both met each other in their college and the chemistry between them sparked and a surprise gift of love came into their life. But they know they cannot marry as the girl’s family will not spare her if she even talks of marrying a boy who comes from a community who burn corpse for a living and lives on Harishchandra Ghat.


IF you love watching films based on serious social issues watching Masaan will not less than an eventful time for you.


2-hour long Masaan is rated 7.4/10 by IMDb.
