In DM Babu Surace commented: ‘Masan’ is a good movie. The dialogue/script could have been made better. The set of the movie is also not good. It seems some actors have done over-acting and others sub-standard acting. The background music is not good. He also says that there is no “masala” that is available in most other commercial movies (i.e. it is dull!).

He adds, Nir Shah would have looked better than Keshav Bhattarai in the role of the father.
