One of the most sought after South thrillers is Vikram Vedha that stars R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles. It tells the story of a cop Vikram out on the hunt for Vedha and when he finds him, that is not the end to the story. There is more and a twist that you cannot imagine.
Over the years, the portrayal of policemen and brutality has taken a 360-degree turn. The South drama has won international accolades for a reason.

The bilingual South drama that stars Samantha Akkineni fits in multiple genres. The part supernatural part thriller is a mind-blowing story. We don’t want to reveal the premise of this film, but can only tell you that it will haunt you at least for a few days after you have seen it.
Mumbai Police stars a mighty police officer played by Prithviraj Sukumaran in the centre of it all. This fire-spitting, always angry and machoism embodied man is gay. Yes, people, this is a film made 7 years ago. But also focus on the thrill. Watch the film to know what it is.
