The pandemic has left all movie lovers longing to watch the drama and thrill of the movies. We are missing some of the most power-packed performances and adrenaline rush provided by murder mysteries and thriller movies. But not anymore; ZEE5 has a range of exciting Tamil movies to watch: Danny, Cocktail, LockUp and more.

 Lockup is a Tamil thriller movie which is going to release on ZEE5. The film is gaining praises for its intense and gripping storyline with some exceptional performances by its star cast. 

The film is a murder mystery with Vaibhav and Venkat Prabhu in the roles of police officers. Vaibhav is seen as a sincere police inspector while Venkat’s character has grey shades. Vani Bhojan is playing the role of Vaibhav’s love interest in the film.

 I watched the trailer of the film and was highly impressed by the gripping and action-packed performances. The film has a fast-paced narrative which will keep you hooked till the end. 

I must say that the trailer of the film looks very promising. It showcases the fast cat-mouse chase, the emotional drama, the thrill, suspense with the backdrop of murder. The movie highlights the dark shades of the police department during the investigation of a murder.

Venkat Prabhu and Vaibhav have provided very intense performances while essaying the roles of the police inspectors. Though there is hardly any scope for romantic scenes given the fact that the movie is a murder mystery; Vani Bhojan has performed excellently as the love interest of Vaibhav. Poorna has taken a very bold decision by playing the role of a mother to a teenager. 

Stay tuned for this Tamil thriller movie which promises to keep you glued to the screens as the film is going to release soon.
