Mugam (English: Face) is a 1999 Tamil language film directed by Gnana Rajasekaran. The film features Nassar and Roja in lead roles whilst Manivannan, Vivek and Thalaivasal Vijay play supporting roles. The film opened in October 1999 to negative reviews and became a box office failure.
Rangan (Nasser) is a very ugly man and therefore lives a tough life. He is kicked out of jobs, ill-treated constantly, and the girl he loves hates him. Then one day, Rangan goes to the house of his make-up artist friend (Manivannan) and finds a strange mask that he picks up and wears. The mask adheres to his face, and Rangan becomes very handsome. With the Mask, Rangan generates followers, becomes a film star, and gets a wife who loves him solely for his handsome face (Roja).
Nearing the end, Rangan takes off the Mask for a moment, and wishes people would respect him for who he is on the inside. His wife walks in, sees his ugly face, and throws him out, mistaking him for a robber. Rangan's former followers throw him to the side. Deciding that only beauty can bring him respect, Rangan puts the mask back on and lives the life of actor.
