Tamil films 90ml and Thadam have been leaked by notorious site Tamil Rockers. Both the films hit the screens last Friday, on March 1, to decent audience response at the Box Office. Thirumanam and Dha Dha 87 are the other two films that released last week. However, none of these two have fallen victim to online piracy yet.
The makers of Thadam had also organised a special screening of the film on Wednesday, February 27. The theatre shows for 90ml started as early as 5 am in the morning on Friday. The team of 90ml put great efforts in promoting the film. Reportedly, actor Oviya, director Alagiya Asura and other artistes from the film even visited the theatres on its opening day to build more curiosity around the film. Even though the film’s content has been liked by the audience, the online leak is expected to hit the business at Box Office.
Thadam, which brings Arun Vijay and Magizh Thirumeni together once again, has also been able to impress the audience.
Last year Ajith’s Viswasam and Rajinikanth’s Petta had been leaked on the website. The other movies which faced a similar fate were 2.0, Thugs Of Hindostan, Sarkar, Kaala and Vishwaroopam 2.
Preventing piracy from happening has been a difficult task, and despite laws, it still continues unchecked. The government had on February 12 introduced a bill in Rajya Sabha to amend the Cinematograph Act and impose a strict penalty to combat the menace of film piracy.
To check piracy, particularly the release of pirated versions of films on the internet which causes huge losses to the film industry and the exchequer, the bill proposes to make film piracy offenses punishable with imprisonment of up to three years and fines that may extend to Rs 10 lakh or both.
Say no to piracy!
