Owing to the increase in the number of Covid 19 cases, OTT platforms  have become the flavour of the season. It’s a win-win situation for both filmmakers and the viewers as the video streaming platform keeps both the business and the entertainment alive .


One platform which we really love watching ,because of the variety it keeps dishing out to its audiences, is ZEE5 . Be it kids programs, family drama series, Live TV, regional fare or movies , this OTT platform has something for everyone.

ZEE5 has recently bought the digital rights of three Tamil movies. The Kollywood movies that will directly premiere to watch include Venkat Prabhu’s Lock up , Yogi Babu’s Cocktail and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar’s Danny.

If you want to keep yourself hooked for a couple of hours, then snuggle up on the couch and watch this crime thriller starring Vaibhav Reddy Vani Bhojan Venkat Prabhu Poorna Easwari Rao. The Tamil movie is directed by S G Charles and the music is composed by Arrol Corelli.

Of late I have seen that  good suspense thrillers and mystery movies are  appreciated equally by the viewers as their comedy or drama counterparts. Movies like Ratsasan and Thadam have definitely given fair recognition to this genre. Lock Up is the latest entrant in this category, and going by the plot line and the trailer, this one is not to be missed for sure.


The story of the film revolves around the Vasanth who seeks help from a senior officer Moorthy to get a promotion at his workplace. Moorthy dies unexpectedly and Vasanth has to solve the case to come out clean #SuspenseAtEveryTurn. Besides being a thriller, Lock Up also highlights the dark shades of the police department as the policeman goes about to resolve the mystery.

Vaibhav Reddy and Venkat Prabhu essay the role of cops. While the former plays the role of an honest officer, the latter has many layers to his character. Vani Bhojan will be seen playing Vaibhav’s love interest in the film.

Produced by actor Nithin Sathyaa, the film will be released on August 14, 2020, on ZEE5.

Already clocking more than 1 million views since its release, you can also check out this teaser trailer to know how promising this movie looks. I bet you can’t miss the eerie background score throughout the trailer’s length which is suspenseful enough to entice the viewers to watch this movie.

The cat and mouse chase between  Police and the killer, who leaves his signature trace after every killing ,would make this movie an interesting watch.
