One of them is the Tamil-Telugu bilingual Penguin, which stars National Award Winning actress Keerthy Suresh
in the lead role. The teaser of this film got dropped just a while ago and it looks like a spooky psychological thriller.
Going by the teaser, the films seem to be revolving around a missing case of a kid. Keerthy Suresh played the role of the mother in it. The background score of the film is really good and so is the cinematography.
