Masala (Urdu: مصالہ‏; Hindi: मसाला) is a word used in South East Asia, mainly India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is used for a style of Indian movies where there is a mix of various styles of movies in one movie. For example, a movie can show action, comedy, drama, and romance. This movie style is used very often in South Indian films as it helps make the movies appeal to more viewers. Famous masala directors include S. Shankar, Perarasu and K. S. Ravikumar.
