Rahul Yadav Nakka showed his good taste as a producer with the films like Malli Raava and Agent Sai Srinivasa Atreya. This time he introduced another new director named Saikiran with Masooda. Starring senior actress Sangeeta and young actor Thiruveer in lead roles, this film has attracted the audience's attention with interesting promos. Let's see if this horror movie has succeeded in scaring the audience.


Neelam (Music) is a science teacher in a private school. Separated from her husband, she lives in an apartment, educating her only daughter Nazia (Bandhavi Sridhar). Gopi (Thiruveer) who lives in the same apartment is a good friend to them. But one day Nazia starts behaving strangely. After consulting doctor which gives no result. She is taken to Peer Baba. That's when it is understood that Nazia is being tormented by a spirit called Masooda. So who is that Masooda.. Why did she possess Nazia.. What did Neelam and Gopi along with Peer Baba do to get Nazia out of this soul is the rest of the story?


It's been a long time since good horror movies came in Telugu. Once upon a time, horror genre was limited to its seriousness, but with films like Prema Katha Chitram, comedy entered it and made this genre go astray. Even though horror comedies did well for a while, they all went in a stereotyped way and the genre got stuck. But now the new director Saikiran has completely committed to the horror genre with his first movie Masooda. With a different backdrop from regular horror movies, he tried to thrill the audience.

The background itself has brought a unique feel to the film. Some moments in the movie are sure to bring chills and scares. After starting the movie with random scenes related to the ghost, the narration shifts to the present and is too slow for a while with some unnecessary tracks, it tests the audience's patience a bit. But the interest levels will go up at the interval, with a hint of more scary things would follow up. 

The second half is fully focused on the main point of saving Nazia from Masooda. Director was able to maintain the suspense about what happens next, but it was a bit strange that he took so much time to establish the mystery behind the ghost, didn't get the desired effect regarding the backstory of the ghost. After that, the climax part is dealt well and the film ends with a sequel hint.


After many years, Sangeeta acted in a key role and impressed. She did full justice to the role of Neelam. Sangeeta looked entirely different from her roles as a heroine. This movie shows that she is a good actress. Thiruveer has once again shown his talent. He has mastered the role of being a terrified and demonic person. Bandhavi Sridhar seemed perfect in the role of the possessed girl. 

Kavya Kalyan Ram, who acted as a child actress in 'Gangotri' and took on the heroine avatar in this film, she was fine. Shubhalekha Sudhakar showed her experience in a pivotal role. Satyam Rajesh, Surabhi Prabhavathi, Satyaprakash did well in the supporting roles.

The technical aspects of 'Masooda' are well done. Background music by Prashant Vihari.. Nagesh Banel's visuals create the mood required for a horror film. The production design is also good. Producer Rahul Yadav once again showed his passion.

Final Note:

Director Saikiran's talent and sincere efforts can be seen on the screen in terms of handling the script. But the regular traits and limitations of horror genre, slow narration, work against his intentions. On a whole, the movie can be watched for its share of horror moments.
