The Thiruveer-starrer performs decently at the box office and debutante Sai Kiran might come up with a sequel

With minimum buzz and promotions, Masooda hit the theatres last friday on November 18. Ever since, the Telugu movie has been the centre for positive reviews from critics and thrilling responses from movie-goers. The horror flick managed to captivate the audiences over the weekend and has grossed an estimated ₹1.45 crore in the Telugu States. 

Backed by Rahul Yadav Nakka’s Swadharm Entertainment and Dil Raju’s Sri Venkeswara Creations, ‘Masooda’ is a thrilling saga based on the rampant practice of witch-hunting. Starring Thiruveer as ‘Gopi,’ Sangeetha Krish as ‘Neelam,’ and Bandhavi Sridhar as ‘Naaziya’ in the lead, ‘Masooda’ is a chilling take on Naaziya’s encounter with an article of mysterious origin and how their lives flip thereafter. Kavya Kalyanram, who appeared as a child artist in Tollywood, portrays the role of ‘Mini,' the love interest of ‘Gopi.’ 

Team ‘Masooda’ addressed the media on Monday and Dil Raju appreciated producer Rahul’s decision-making. “I told Rahul to trim the film after I saw the runtime of 160 minutes. He was confident with the lengthy runtime and refused to trim it. I would have trimmed it by 15 minutes if it were up to me,” remarked Dil Raju. He added, “I was nervous on the release date and ultimately, Rahul’s conviction paid off. As a producer, I look at profits but Rahul hits the ball hard. He might get caught or the ball might land straight into the boundary. He doesn’t believe in scoring singles. After the morning show in Hyderabad, I conversed with an otherwise tough film reviewer, who heaped praises on the film and lauded the producer. I made a few calls to a handful of theatres to learn about the positive consensus.

For the makers, the numbers posted by ‘Masooda’ (as per trade experts) might have provided the impetus to make the sequel. Before the movie's climax, debutant director Sai Kiran hints at a sequel with several easter eggs. The movie’s cliffhanger ending almost confirms that makers have plans for ‘Masooda 2’. However, an announcement regarding the same is yet to be made.
