A casual viewer is ought to be disappointed, for he may find it drab and utterly boring. But, The Master will most definitely succeed in satisfying the deepest cravings of an intelligent viewer. The Master with its air of randomness and lack of purpose offers enough food for thought for the intelligent audience to ruminate long after it is over.
