In Prime Video’s first-ever regional language web series “Suzhal”, the duo stamp their class yet again, using their signature storytelling style to paint a vivid canvas that engages and entertains in equal measure. Directors Bramma and Anurcharan Murugaiyan further enhance the writing of Pushkar & Gayathri with immaculate visual grammar to deliver a compelling thriller series that makes a telling impression despite minor flaws.

Another intriguing whodunit by the authors of the riveting crime thriller Suzhal is Vadandhi – The Fable of Velonie (Rumor – The Fable of Velonie). The eight-part series, which unravels a web of lies, is developed, written, and directed by Andrew Louis.

SJ Suryah has done a calm and nuanced representation of SI Vivek, making it look as if he owns the role. Like Nassar and Vivek Prasanna, two supporting actors, Laila also plays her part subtly.
