Masterpiece: The Review

Abheek tells Baani that he has tried to make his ‘Masterpiece’ thrice and in the secret room, we get to see paintings of three other girls in the same scenario as Baani. Although it is a simple love story on YouTube with an artistic and thrilling climax, the story keeps us hooked throughout the film. Some critics also suggest that the acting and storytelling was so good that it could have easily been made into a two hour film. Some viewers also demand an explanation as to why Abheek was doing so? But, there’s no response by the makers on it.

The story leaves the viewers in a cliffhanger, which suggests the fact that life is full of unexpected turns and one must not put his faith in every other person. In short, the film Masterpiece delivers a thrilling story within its run time on YouTube and impresses several critics and viewers.
