In this article, we will discuss the Cold Case’s plot and discuss how you may be able to watch the movie.

What Is the Plot Of Cold Case?
Cold Case is a Malayalam crime-thriller film featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran in the role of ACP M. Sathyajith IPS. The film encaptures a cold-blooded homicide case that happens in the capital city of the state of Kerala, Trivandrum. A mutilated human skull is found in a garbage bag in the backwaters of a lake, So, ACP Sathyajith is assigned to investigate this case. Learning everything he possibly can, Sathyajith has realized that this was no murder but an actual homicide.
Elsewhere, we have Aditi Balan playing a freelance journalist and single mother, Medha Padmaja. She moves into a new house in Trivandrum with her daughter, Chinnotty. But, it seems like her little family is not welcome into this new residence as she experiences some paranormal activities. So, being a journalist, Medha wants to find the root cause for the said events. Sathyajith and Medha conduct their own investigation of their respective cases. But as the plot movies forward, we can see how the two events are connected to one another as they head towards a common point.
There are certainly quite some supernatural events taking place in this film. This is prominently evident from the occult woman who keeps creates an eerie atmosphere through her repeated chanting. There are also several glimpses of people behaving as if they have been possessed. And like many other horror films worldwide, this too has a scene involving a little girl and doll.
Where To Watch Cold Case?
Cold Case is exclusively available to watch on Amazon Prime Video. The film was initially meant to have a theatrical release. But this plan was foiled due to the second wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic. And according to the film’s director, Tanu Balak, the experience between the theatrical and home release could have some significant differences. A theatrical release may enhance the overall quality of the viewing experience with appropriate surround sound. Nevertheless, seeing the situation, a home release was a much better option. An OTT release of the film helps to reach a wider reach of audience. And considering that “Cold Case” is a story not engulfed by regional norms, people from different backgrounds could watch without an issue. This could only be possible through an OTT Platform. In this case, it happens to be Amazon Prime Video.
I won't spell it out for you but the mystery is all yours. It's time to join the bandwagon and solve the #ColdCaseOnPrime.

Amazon Prime Video has been trying to expand its exclusive content library for some time now. Seeing that the COVID-19 Pandemic has led to the shutdowns of theatres, an opportunity has opened up for OTT Platforms. Films that are unable to have a theatrical release are resorting to selling the rights to stream their movies to OTT Platforms. A few of the international films include Tomorrow War (2nd July 2021). Cinderella (3rd September 2021), and My Name Is Pauli Murray (17th September 2021).
