As the lockdown bars us from going outside and hanging out with friends and peers, watching a nice movie or web series has become the respite for the weekends.

Given how much we love devouring and re-watching thriller, here are 5 thriller movies which are a must watch!
Ayushman Khurana plays the role of a blind musician Akash. The trailer itself arouses suspicion in the mind of the audience- is he truly blind? Would Akash witness something that would change his life forever? How would he come out of this tangled web? Who is truly blind-someone who is unable to see or someone who chooses not to?
Misdeeds from the past return to haunt us! Four directors, four stories, one common theme – Death! The flashbacks merged with the present day form an interesting part of the narrative. Among the four stories the one with the reverse planchet and the other one where dead characters return for revenge are really baffling.
A story of revenge which starts with a death! Naina (TaapseePanu) is the primary suspect in the murder of her boyfriend Arjun. She hires Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), a senior advocate who has never lost a case in his forty year long career. The mystery gets entangled more and more as they attempt to discover the truth. Who enters and leaves from the locked room? Why would a blackmailer leave without taking the money?
