Hitting the debut director Sri Senthil and Tamil star Bharath’s comeback film after two years, piracy site Tamilrockers leaked Kaalidas online for free full HD download. Leaked by the torrent site on the day of its release, the perpetrators stood true to their notoriety of attacking the commercial success of a film by leaking it online.
The film was already one of the most anticipated in films as it marked Bharath’s comeback after he fizzled out in an attempt to become a mass hero with his choice of films earlier. However, the box office numbers going down due to the easy availability of the film online is inevitable now.
Film piracy is a huge menace which the movie industry is facing for a long time now. Tamilrockers is known for leaking the movies online for free including Pati, Patni Aur Woh, Panipat, Commando 3, Hotel Mumbai, Pagalpanti, Hotel Mumbai, Motichoor Chaknachoor, Marjaavaan, Bala, Terminator: Dark Fate, Bypass Road, Ujda Chaman, Housefull 4, The Sky is Pink, Aruvam, Chhichhore, JudgeMentall Hai Kya, Super 30, Kabir Singh, Raatchasi, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Pakkiri, X-Men Dark Phoenix, Sacred Games 2, Mission Mangal, Saaho and Nerkonda Paarv among others.
Recently, Producers Guild of India came up with a press release to curb piracy. As per the press note, anybody who is involved in piracy has to face three years of a jail term or a fine of Rs 10 lakh or both. The note read, “Cabinet approves an amendment to Cinematograph Act, 1952. If anyone involved in this has to face 3 years jail term or fine of ₹ 10 lakh or both.”
Despite strict actions taken by law enforcement agencies, Tamilrockers has been involved in the leaking of full movies online for a long time. This should be noted that watching a pirated version of the film leaked online only encourages such a website incurring a loss to the entire team of the film. It is to be noted that not only Bollywood films but Tollywood and Hollywood films also get leaked by the piracy sites.
