You can find a library of fantastic thriller movies on Hotstar. Here are the best ones.
The best thriller movies on Hotstar
These Hotstar thriller movies are as exciting as they are entertaining.
1. A Thursday
Perhaps the best role Yami Gautam has essayed in her career; A Thursday follows playschool teacher Naina, who takes 16 students hostage. She makes a series of demands, including a meeting with the Prime Minister (the gorgeous Dimple Kapadia), failing which she vows to kill one child every hour. Her maddening demands send shockwaves across the country, but what possessed her to resort to kidnapping? That is the answer everyone wants.
2. Red Sparrow
Starring Jessica Chastain in the lead role, Red Sparrow narrates the tale of Dominika Egovora – a devoted daughter, a prima ballerina, and a seductress with manipulative combat skills. When an injury ends her career, Dominika trains to become a secret intelligence agent, Red Sparrow, to protect her mother. She soon learns to use her body and mind as a weapon. But will she lose her real self in her new, high-flying career?
Among the best thriller movies on Disney+ Hotstar is Drishyam starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu. In this 2015 film, Ajay plays Vijay Salgaonkar, an ordinary family man who goes to extra-ordinary lengths to protect his wife and daughters. When his family is unwittingly entangled in a crime, with cop Meera Deshmukh (Tabu) in hot pursuit, Vijay concocts the perfect alibi. For both Vijay and Meera, the outcome impacts their families. Will Vijay succeed in his plan?
Watching Kamal Hassan movies is always delightful, and that’s precisely what you get with Vikram. Hassan plays commander Vikram, who embarks on a relentless quest to take down a notorious drug cartel. In his pursuit to end evil, Vikram resorts to some questionable means that could cost many people their lives. The movie (dubbed in many languages) begs the question – is it right to walk on the path of evil to eliminate it?
5. The Sixth Sense
The Sixth Sense is not just the best thriller on Hotstar, but the best thriller ever, period. This classic 1999 movie stars Bruce Willis in the lead role. Willis plays child psychologist Malcolm Crowe who meets a nine-year-old boy, Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment). The little boy is hiding a dark secret, which, when revealed, leaves you shocked and stunned. If you haven’t watched the movie, you’ll not see it coming.
