The now infamous piracy portal Tamilrockers has leaked yet another film only a short while after its cinematic release. The Krishna Sekhar and Bindu Madhavi starrer, Kazhugu 2, is now available on the site in its entirety for users to stream and download for free. As of late, Tamilrockers has gained newfound notoriety as more and more reports of popular films getting pirated on the site have gotten attention. Tamilrockers was initially established to only pirate Tollywood films, as suggested in its name, but it has since branched out to pirating highly anticipated movies of all languages, including Bollywood and Hollywood. Kazhugu 2 is only one of the many flicks that is available to Tamilrockers users.
Though piracy is of course illegal in India and does face dire legal consequences, there has been little to no indication that Tamilrockers is under any risk of being shut down. According to some reports, the portal survives by continuously switching to new web addresses in order to avoid being taken down permanently. It seems like the Indian film industry certainly has a lot to worry about when it comes to Tamilrockers, as it has developed a reputation for being able to provide movies in their entirety for users to view and download free of charge. Other recent films that have been pirated by Tamilrockers include Tollywood flicks A1, Dear Comrade and Gorilla. Highly successful Hollywood films like Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King and Hobbs & Shaw have also been leaked.
Kazhugu 2 is directed by Sathyasiva and is the sequel to the 2012 thriller Kazhugu. Both films follow a thriller format, with the former following a group of people who are assigned to recover the bodies of people who committed suicide by jumping off a cliff while the latter tells the story of a duo of thieves who are mistakenly identified as hunters by a local village. Kazhugu 2 has so far received mixed to negative reviews.
