  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-7
We live in a country where in its urban parts, there is a huge influence of the western culture, due to which, despite of staying miles away from them people out here know lots about them. But when it comes to our country and its culture or even stuffs related to it, less said the better.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
If you were a boy growing up in a certain kind of household or hostel in North India in the 70s and 80s, chances were you were glad-handing pulpy porn booklets, written on cheap yellow paper, by a certain gent named Mastram. No one knew who the author/authors was/were, but the phenomenal

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-8
Set in the cozy hill station of Manali, the film is an exciting tale about a writer who is shunned for his apparently plain works and later makes a fortune out of writing erotica. The reason why the palette served in this film sounds exciting to me is because it is reflective of the Indian thinking process.

  •  Rediff -Prasanna D Zore Rating-3
Set in Himachal Pradesh in the 1980s, Mastram revolves around the life of a novelist who craves for respect through his clean writing bereft of which he starts peddling porn to earn his living.The film directed by Akhilesh Jaiswal is about the transformation of a simpleton who gives in to the pressure

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-4
Must masturbate mentally ... Must read more intellectually stimulating porn ... Must sex-educate the self through pulp fiction of the sleaziest kind ... Must update self on the birds and the bees... Because life's a b***h and love is a fantasy between (book) covers and because 'Mastram' says it's a 'must'!

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-4
Somewhere inside Mastram is the delicious tale of a writer who desperately wants to create literature but ends up writing soft-porn instead. Under the pseudonym Mastram, the timid bank clerk Rajaram , churns out lurid fantasies about his best friend and his wife, a delectable tuition teacher

  •  IBN Live -Prajakta Hebbar Rating-5
Hilarious and 'erotic' phrases such as these, and several artistically blurred fantasies of an earnest and passionate writer, are the only 'graphic' things you will come across in 'Mastram'.How does one come up with a fictionalised account of a fiction writer? That too, of an author

  •  Bollywood Hungama Rating-4
In today's world where everything is available at a mere press of a button, many of us have forgotten as to how the bygone era was and what all were the means of livelihood that they had adopted as a career [both conventional and unconventional]. Strange but true, one such unconventional

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-7
Midway through the film there is a conversation between two characters discussing the impact of Mastram. The younger one argues how this is going to hamper the youth, the older one says, "Mere liye toh itihas hai". While the scene is intended to bring in some laughs,

  •  Bollywood Life -Prathamesh Jadhav Rating-6
Conjuring up images of your best friend pumping up the passion in your wife and soon the latter giving in to the former’s desperate moves to indulge in an uninhibited pleasure-fest could be the stuff of outrageously kinky psyche. But such imagery could be (and mostly, it is) a must for a porn writer

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-3
Mastram is an erotic cult which openly invites the sexually frustrated ones to the cinema halls and serves them a very interesting tale about them. It is a fictional biography about a reluctant pornographic writer (played by Rahul Bagga) who wants to write a book.
