We have strengthened our Tamil portfolio with interesting originals like Kallachirippu and America Mappillai along with latest movies. With a gripping narrative, differentiator of a ‘silent thriller’ and a stellar cast, Karthik Subbaraj’s Mercury clearly stands out. We hope that with this launch on the platform, audiences will enjoy the film again with new vigour.”

I am confident that with the massive reach of ZEE5, Mercury will be seen and loved by many more viewers.”
