The female lead in the “Puli Meka” series is played by actress Lavanya Tripathi, who hasn’t been seen on the big screen since “Happy Birthday.” Starting right now, you may watch this series on the OTT platform Zee5. Let’s examine this series in more detail to determine whether Aadi Saikumar may find success, at least online.


The police are alarmed by a horrific murder that occurs in the city. But no information about the murderer is discovered. As the police force comes under increasing pressure, Kiran Prabha, a specialist in similar instances, is given the case. To look into the situation, she works with forensics specialist Prabhakar Sharma. The remainder of the narrative focuses solely on the police department’s techniques used to catch the murderer after some unexpected turns.

In the past, there have been a lot of thriller films with a plot including an investigation into serial killings. A two-hour thriller film is always thrilling to watch because we look forward to the revelations as they come. Yet we anticipate some exciting scenes in the film as well as a compelling narrative for the murderer that motivated him or her to target particular individuals. Puli Meka is missing the excitement and fascinating backstory.

Characters in Puli Meka are comparable to those in the Malayalam films “Anjaam Pathiraa” and “Forensic.” Many sequences, not simply the characters, will undoubtedly bring back memories of foreign films we’ve seen in the past. There are very few episodes in the series that start us off with enthusiasm but fail to keep us there later. The final episodes have a few twists and turns, but they are not that thrilling.

Aadi Saikumar’s performance in the series is really subpar because he doesn’t fit the position of a forensic expert. Lavanya Tripathi’s performance is forgettable and she is an absolute misfit for the position of a police officer. The roles played by Suman and Gopraju Ramana were adequate. There isn’t much to like about Siri Hanumanthu. All of the other actors performed their roles to the best of their abilities.

Technically, Puli Meka looks alright. One of the series’ key attractions is the background music, which was composed by Praveen Lakkaraju and helps to heighten the tension in a few key sequences. Ram K Mahesh’s cinematography falls short of expectations, and the on-screen aesthetics are subpar. The Kona Venkat and Venkatesh Kilaru story is highly predictable and contains sequences from a variety of thriller films. The production values are adequate.

Notwithstanding the very poor quality of the script he was given, director Chakravarthy Reddy strove to make the show appear intriguing. He most likely had some success with his creations.

Ultimately, Puli Meka is a thriller that delivers a few surprises that will have us watching until the very last episode.

Plus Points:

  • Few twists
  • Background score

Minus Points:

  • Story
  • Performances by the lead cast

Rating: 2.75/5
