 Investigative thriller 'Puli Meka' amasses 75 million viewing minutes on ZEE5

Lavanya Tripathi, Aadi Saikumar and others bowl over the viewer in this ZEE5 Original

Hyderabad, 3rd March, 2023: ZEE5 has been relentlessly dishing out a wide variety of content in various formats in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali and other languages. ZEE5 has made a name for itself nationwide as a prominent streaming platform since its inception. After presenting the comedy-drama 'Oka Chinna Family Story' from Pink Elephant Pictures, 'Loser 2' from Annapurna Studios stable, 'Gaalivaana' from BBC Studios and NorthStar Entertainment, 'Recce', 'Hello World', 'Maa Neella Tank', 'Aha Naa Pellanta' and most recently 'ATM', the platform started streaming 'Puli-Meka' on February 23.

ZEE5 and Kona Film Corporation are pleased that the eight-episode series has clocked a mind-blowing number of views. It has amassed 75 million viewing minutes since its release.

The viewers are loving how the series blends thrills with a compelling flashback. Lavanya Tripathi's characterization, the way her character does the tightrope walking between her duty as a cop and the truth, and the rollercoaster investigative ride are impressing the viewer big-time.

The storyline, the twists, the way the series sustains tension, the inherent message, the entertainment value, and, of course, the performances have catapulted 'Puli Meka' to the next level. The ending, which gives a lead to the second season, has been described as thoughtful.

The family audience are enjoying the characterizations of Aadi Saiumar, Goparaju Ramana, Siri Hanmanth, Raja Chembolu and Noel Sean.

Some of the ideas in 'Puli Meka' evolved organically. For example, the intriguing fag end of the series was conceived by writer and showrunner Kona Venkat after the shoot began. 'Puli Meka' is a fusion of the script sense of a commercial film and the format of a sincere web series.
