Actress Keerthy Suresh’s forthcoming Tamil film Penguin (2020) looks like thriller about the search for a serial killer who preys on young children.
The trailer opens with the shot of Keerthy feeding her young son on a swing and as it quickly cuts to the next shot, we hear her screaming his name (Ajay) out loud. He’s gone missing and Keerthy won’t stop before finding him. When a police officer tells her that her son could’ve died when they find his jacket, Keerthy doesn’t want to believe it.
Halfway into the trailer, a police officer says that one more kid from the town has gone missing. We get a glimpse of the masked killer in the rest of the trailer and Keerthy is after him.
Penguin will be the second mainstream Tamil film after Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal (2020) to directly opt for OTT release, bypassing theatres due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The first look poster of Penguin was unveiled last year. The poster features Keerthy as a pregnant woman and it could be sensed from her profile that she’s sad. The film also stars Rangaraj and Linga in crucial roles.
The film will see Keerthy in a very dark, but emotional role. It was predominantly shot in Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu.
Penguin, directed by Eeshwar Karthic, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on 19 June. Produced by Karthik Subbaraj’s Stone Bench Films, the film has music by Santosh Narayanan.
