Top 10 Tamil Thrillers Movies

Movies always have something new to offer every single time. Every cinema has different genre and so does Tamil Cinema like Action, Romance, Comedy, Thriller, Crime, Horror, and many more. I personally believe that more than their romantic movies, the director goes all out when it comes to action or crime Thrillers. There is something about these Thriller Movies as they hold us till the very end. We have no clue about what would be the next scene. Sometimes these movies are made like they seem all predictable but somehow in the end there are such mind-blowing twists and turns that we are left spell-bound. Every time a thriller movie is released, I wonder what new will be shown this time, but every single time, I’m somehow mind-blown.   

I’m going to pick out 10 thriller movies out of all the movies made in Tamil Cinema. I know this is going to be a difficult task, but these are my recommendations the 10 must watch crime thriller movie that you sure need to watch. So keep reading and yes, I so have no intentions to spoil your experience in watching these movies in case you haven’t so do not worry, not going to give out any information about the movie, so you sure are safe to read this blog.

Also, these 10 Tamil Thriller movies are of random order and not numbered according to the ‘Which movie is better than the movie’ ranking that I feel you should totally watch. So let’s get started.
