Pituitary gland is considered to be the master controller of our body but Hypothalamus of our brain controls the pituitary gland so shouldn't the hypothalamus be the master controller?

Maybe you should consider it like a train. The engine is responsible for moving all the other cars along the track. However, the man inside--the engineer must drive, slow, and brake to a stop. Consider the pituitary gland as the train, and consider the hypothalamus as the engineer.
