Alarm - Trailer Review

Alarm - Trailer Review
I am here with ZEE5’s web series Alarm’s trailer review. The much-awaited series was recently launched on the platform and I’ll be sharing my views on the trailer.

Rakka Katti Prakkuthu Manasu, Oru Oorla Oru Rajakumari, Poove Poochadava, Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Sembaruthi are some of the serials which become a huge hit among Tamil TV audiences. Zee Tamil is known for offering a variety of shows for its viewers. With an array of serials breaking the stereotypes, Zee certainly knows to entertain its audiences. Now with their Tamil original web series Alarm, ZEE5 is ready to blow your mind away.

When I watched the trailer of Alarm which got released on 22nd November, I was surprised by 2 things. First one is the BGM. I found the background music to be fantastic which make us feel that we are watching a big budget movie in a theatre. The next one is about the gripping power of the trailer. The trailer takes you through a roller coaster ride with so many twists and turns.
Performances of Prem Kumar and Subadhra grabs our attention very quickly. It is tricky to say whether Subadhra plays a negative character though. I always like Subadhra for her matured acting. Hence, her intense character with grey shades in this series came across as a surprise.

I have never seen any of the performances of Anjali Rao so far. So, I am now excited to see her role in this series.
Overall, I found the trailer to be quite gripping. But the major highlight of the show seems to be the story. Narrating the story of a gipsy girl’s kidnapping, the mother of the girl gives the investigating cop a cursed pocket watch and 12 hours to save her daughter. With every passing hour, something bad will happen in the cop’s life.
It was interesting to see how various genres come together to form the story of the series. With elements of an investigative cop thriller, black magic and fantasy involved, Alarm surely looks and feels different from most web series I have come across till now.
So, those were my views on the Alarm trailer. I would highly recommend you check out the series like I will be doing. That’s because Alarm seems to offer a unique cinematic experience in Tamil and I really appreciate ZEE5 for taking a step in this direction.
