Lockup (2020) - Tamil  Movie Review
‘Lockup’ is the latest Tamil film to join the list of direct digital release during the pandemic lockdown. Zee5 snatched the rights from Sun Network to premier the movie directly on it's streaming platform.

The movie stars Vaibhav, Venkat Prabhu, Easwari Rao, Poorna, Vani Bhojan, and Mime Gopi and is directed by debutant SG Charles with music by Arrol Coreli and Cinematography by Santhanam Sekar. ‘Lock-Up’ is produced by Tamil actor Nitin Satyaa.


A police officer named Sampath (Mime Gopi) has been murdered in his posh bungalow and the investigation is handed over to Inspector Ilavarasi (Eswari Rao). Before that, Sub-Inspector Moorthy (Venkat Prabhu) arrests a local goon for Sampath’s murder on the spot.

As Ilavarasi takes up the investigation, she finds the knife which was used for the murder is different from the knife which was spotted at the scene. She also finds more loop-holes on the case.

Also, Vasanth (Vaibhav), a subordinate to Murthy, who was assigned the suicide case of a house maid, finds that her death is related to the murdered cop. In the meantime, the arrested goon dies and the case gets complex.

The rest is all about who is the real culprit, who is helping them out, what is the reason behind Sampath’s murder and whether Ilavarasi is able to catch the murderers.

Lockup could have been a promising thriller but falls flat due to an underdeveloped plot.
Pradeep Kumar ()
Lockup is a decent whodunit thriller that keeps us engaged in the crisp 106 minutes runtime.
2.75/5 ()
Lockup is an engaging crime thriller, with a flurry of twists and turns.
2.75/5 ()
An engaging non-linear narration with twists at regular intervals make it an interesting watch.
3/5 Thinkal Menon ()
Smart premise handcuffed in mediocrity. It sounds intriguing on paper and could have been a smart murder mystery.
Ashameera Aiyappan ()
A predictable but surprisingly engaging investigative thriller.
