Upcoming ZEE5 Originals and Movies
ZEE5 - Entertainment Ka Baap Aaya

If we have to name an Indian OTT platform giving a tough fight to streaming giants like Netflix and Prime Video then it has to be ZEE5. The video-on-demand platform is enthralling the audience since its launch in Feb 2018. The digital streaming platform currently has more than 60 million active users which itself is a testimony of its popularity.

ZEE5 has a plethora of original movies and shows across various genres. If you are a fan of crime thrillers then shows like Abhay, Lalbazaar, Mafia, and Apaharan are at your rescue. All these are mind-blowing shows that have perfect amounts of crime and thrill. Short of time and still want to get thrilled? Watch thriller movies like Taish, London Confidential, or Lahore Confidential.

ZEE5 came as a rescue for its subscribers when the whole country was under lockdown in 2020. It enthralled the audience with shows like Abhay, Lalbazaar, Mafia, and Kaali. While crime thrillers remained the flavor of the season, ZEE5 came up with heart-touching family entertainers like Pareeksha, Chintu Ka Birthday, and Ghoomketu when it was most needed. So, if you miss going out for a movie with your family, give these movies a try. You wouldn’t regret it.

ZEE5 offers endless entertainment across various genres. It will continue to enthrall the audience in the coming times. The last two years were just trailers as the digital platform is all set to give non-stop entertainment to the viewers.

It will be #NonstopEntertainmentonZEE5 as new originals and blockbuster movies are coming up in 2021. Here are a few movies and shows which got us excited.

Black Widows

Black Widows is a murder mystery with a touch of dark humor. Released on Dec 18, 2020, the show is already grabbing eyeballs for its intriguing and entertaining premises. It boasts of a great ensemble cast which includes names like Mona Singh, Shamita Shetty, Swastika Mukherjee, Sharad Kelkar, Parambrata Chatterjee, Raima Sen, and Sabyasachi Mukherjee. If you love crime thrillers then Black Widows is one show you must watch.

Nail Polish

Nail Polish is a ZEE5 original film starring Arjun Rampal, Manav Kaul, and Rajit Kapur in pivotal roles. According to the makers, the courtroom drama is “a uniquely constructed murder trial where the back story and the court proceedings are seamlessly interwoven into a journey of criminal discovery that leaves the audience guessing till the very end.”

The trailer released on Dec 8, 2020, promises an intense courtroom thriller drama with power-packed performances by the lead actors. Nail Polish will start streaming on ZEE5 from January 1, 2021.


This is the movie, everyone is waiting for. Directed by Satish Kaushik and presented by Salman Khan, Kaagaz stars Pankaj Tripathi in a pivotal role. It is about a common man, played by Pankaj Tripathi, who is declared dead as per the government records and struggles to prove his existence. Needless to say, Pankaj Tripathi is all set to deliver a top-notch performance. Watch the trailer here:


The period drama stars Annu Kapoor, Milind Soman, Shilpa Shinde, Shaheer Sheikh, Anant V Joshi, and Poulomi Das among others in key roles. While not much has been revealed about the show’s plot, its official description reads, “As the mystery behind Maharaja Bhadrapratap’s missing queens is unraveled, so is the hypocrisy of the king and his kingdom where everyone, except the men, are subjected to a lifetime of slavery.”

Besides these new originals, ZEE5 has renewed its original shows. 2021 will be an exciting year for the OTT fans as blockbuster shows Rangbaaz, Apaharan, State of Siege, Lalbazaar, Kaali are set to return with their forthcoming season.

If this isn’t enough, I would recommend you to give a try to Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda starrer Taish. It is rated among the best crime thriller movies of 2020. Fed up with crime thrillers and want to refresh your mind then you can watch Darbaan or Comedy Couple.
