Actor Nithiin makes a major reveal about ZEE5's blockuster thriller 'Puli Meka'
ZEE5 started streaming 'Puli-Meka' on February 23. Brought out by ZEE5 and Kona Film Corporation, the eight-episode series is an investigative thriller.
The acclaimed and much-loved series comes with a mega twist of sorts when it is revealed that Lavanya Tripathi's Kiran Prabha herself is the serial killer that she pretends to nab against all odds. Usually, whodunits are supposed to be watched without knowing the name of the killer. But the makers of 'Puli Meka' have got actor Nithiin to make the big reveal in an attempt to generate more interest in its content. That's because writer and showrunner Kona Venkat has got more in store than merely the suspense surrounding the killer.
"This is a spoiler alert. Alerting you with a big reveal from Puli Meka. Highly unexpected! Watch the Thrilling Family Entertainer," wrote Nithiin on social media. The series has been breaking records by pulling off the best performance in terms of viewing minutes among all Telugu-language web series.
The idea of revealing the plot twist is unconventional. The video clip shared by Nithiin shows that Aadi Saikumar's character discovers Kiran Prabha's true colours and confronts her. The killer in disguise as an investigator looks worried and tense upon being questioned. The curious reveal leaves the viewer with more questions than answers. And that's what a smart thriller knows best how to do. 'Puli Meka' is now no longer a whodunit but a whydunit and howdunit!
Starring also Aadi Saikumar, Goparaju Ramana, Siri Hanmanth, Raja Chembolu and Noel Sean, the resounding success of the series is proof that organic twists and a heart-touching message are always respected by the audience. Women, especially, are loving the social message.
