Take a break from Masala Blockbusters for Edge of the seat Tamil thrillers


We are almost 3 months into 2019, and Tamil cinema is buzzing with masala blockbusters. Petta has probably been the best Rajinikanth movie to come out after 2010, no doubts about it. On the other hand, people also loved the Ajith starrer ‘Viswasam’, which if you ask us features the best performance from our Thala in recent times. The list does not stop there. However, as much as we love to see them, we want to see some good thrillers. In 2018, we got to see some amazing thriller movies like Ratsasan, U-turn, Imaikkaa Nodigal, Iravukku Aayiram Kangal, to name a few. However, a good thriller is yet to make a splash in 2019.



Unlike the other genres that exist in cinema, Thriller is one genre that can be watched by anyone, irrespective of the language. So, even when you watch a Tamil thriller, you will get almost get the same kind of feeling. We, personally, think Korean and Tamil Industry makes the best thrillers you can find on the planet. All it takes to make a good thriller movie is a good script and actors who can pull the role, that’s it. You don’t need a huge budget to make one, but despite that, we hardly have some good thrillers, period. But don’t let that dull you, If you are like us and looking for a thrilling Tamil movie online, then here is the list of movies that you must watch right away. Since all these movies are available on ZEE5, you can even save the efforts of googling to find the movie.

Soodhu Kavvum: What do you look for in a good thriller movie? A great plotline which will keep you on the edge of the seat all the time - Check, Great Cast - Check and an unexpected ending which is still palatable - Check. This movie got everything covered, and even more. With liberal doses of black comedy, this movie offers incredible thrills that keep you guessing about the next twists. This thrilling yet satirical tale of kidnapping, politics and greed is sure to make you think just as well as it entertains. According to Moving Images, this movie has the best setups and payoffs, making it a recipe to feed the thriller lover in you.

Kirumi: Kirumi is one of the most underrated movies in this list. The story of an informer who falls prey when his supervisor joins hands with the goons and tries to get him murdered will get you hooked to it in no time. Apart from having an engaging story and great cinematography, the movie also featured one of the growing actors in Tamil Cinema, Kathir. This 2015 thriller received some overwhelming response from the critics.

Kolamavu Kokila: By now we all must have got used to the phrase ‘The Lady Superstar is here to rule’, and Nayantara proved it again with her latest 2018 movie ‘Kolamavu Kokila’. A thrilling glimpse into the world of drug peddling with sharp wit, the movie was appreciated from all sections of the audience for tastefully handling the delicate subject. A major highlight of the movie is Yogi Babu, who delivers a knockout performance.

Thiruttu Payale 2: No matter how hard you try, you can never replace the original. Director Susi Ganeshan knew this from the start, and that’s why he decided to branch out into the cop thriller genre with the sequel of Thiruttu Payale. The movie is majorly a cat-and-mouse chase touching upon the themes of surveillance and hacking to thrilling effect. By the time this Bobby Simha starrer ends, you would think twice before posting something on your facebook again.

8 Thottakkal: The movie created a lot of buzz for its supposed inspiration from an international TV show. But the buzz majorly comprised of praises for creating a sleek adaptation, rooted in the local milieu. A thrilling tale involving a police officer, an ex-constable and 8 bullets (as suggested in the title), the movie successfully delivers emotional punches with its twists. With veteran actor M.S Bhaskar in top form, this is one movie you should miss.
