Zee Tamil to uplift spirits with Labour Day special movies and shows

Mersal is one of the films that will be screened on Labour Day

MUMBAI: Zee Tamil has unveiled its line-up of special movies and shows for Labour Day, 1 May. In a recent statement, the channel revealed that it is aiming to distract viewers from the panic state ''with a dose of positive entertainment that they can enjoy with their family in the safety and comfort of their homes''. 

On 1 May, at 09.30 AM, Zee Tamil will screen Thalapathy Vijay's blockbuster movie Mersal. The film directed by Atlee was a massive hit upon its release, and it has sufficient doses of action and emotion to enthral audiences. Apart from Vijay, the film also stars SJ Surya, Nithya Menon, Samantha Akkineni, and Kajal Agarwal in other prominent roles. 

At 1 PM, the channel will premiere the action thriller film Mirugaa. Directed by debutante Parthiban, the film stars Srikanth and Raai Laxmi in the lead roles, along with Dev Gill, Abhishek Shankar, Naira Shah, and Vaishnavi Chandran in other important roles. The action thriller film has a uniquely interesting plot where a serial killer gets married to a billionaire with the sole aim of looting her money. However, the presence of a man-eating tiger around them shatters his plans. 

At 03.30 PM, another action movie Ithu Yennoda Jilla will be screened on Zee Tamil. The movie is the Tamil dubbed version of the Telugu blockbuster Arvinda Sametha Veera Raghava starring Jr. NTR, Pooja Hegde, and Jagapathi Babu in the lead roles. 

From 07.30 PM, audiences can enjoy their favourite serials on Zee Tamil. 

In the statement, the network has also urged people to stay at home to protect themselves from exposure to the deadly pandemic. 

"On this Labour Day, tune into Zee Tamil and witness fun and entertainment engross your mind, as we urge you to stay home and stay safe and avail vaccination, which will be key in our fight against the pandemic," said the release.
