"Just saw 'Masaan'. Excellent movie. A must watch," Kejriwal posted on twitter about the film.

He also praised actress Richa Chadha's performance in the Varanasi-set drama. "@RichaChadha_ Your acting in 'Masaan' is superb," Kejriwal wrote.

At the screening, Arvind Kejriwal was joined by Richa, director Neeraj Ghaywan and Guneet Monga of Sikhya Entertainment, which has co-produced the film along with Anurag Kashyap (Phantom Films) and Manish Mundra (Drishyam Films).

"Masaan", which hit theatres on Friday, has been getting rave reviews from the critics as well as the audience.

"Masaan", which premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival, won two awards-- FIPRESCI, International Jury of Film Critics prize and Promising Future prize in the Un Certain Regard section.

The film also stars Sanjay Mishra and Richa Chaddha, who along with the other cast and crew members besides filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, were present at the screening of the film here as part of the sixth edition of Jagran Film Festival yesterday.

Richa said she decided to do the film as her role was promising and gave a simple and plain message in a straight way.
