Tamilrockers has struck again! The now notorious piracy website has found yet another victim in its midst: the parody comedy film “Arjun Patiala.” As it has gone with other recent reports of films being leaked by Tamilrockers, the leak came about just hours after “Arjun Patiala” was released in cinemas. It is available on the site in its entirety and is available for free streaming and as a torrent.
“Arjun Patiala” stars Diljit Dosanjh, Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma. The film follows the life of its titular character ACP Arjun Patiala, a small-town cop joined by his sidekick Head Constable Onida Singh (Varun Sharma) and crime journalist Ritu Randhawa (Kriti Sanon) in a comedy dedicated to spoofing Bollywood’s trend of cop films, such as “Dabangg”, “Singham” and the recently released “Simmba.” Ever since its cinematic release over the weekend, the film has received generally mixed reviews, with critics praising Diljit’s performance but criticising the script and the film’s tone.
“Arjun Patiala” has certainly been considered a first for the Bollywood film industry, as parody flicks are few and far between. Kriti Sanon recently gave an interview where she touched on the film’s unique genre. Kriti was quoted as saying, “In the West, spoof has been used well in films like Deadpool (2016), where the characters are making fun of themselves. Personally, I love the genre.” She continued to speak more on the idea behind “Arjun Patiala” and how the film presented a different look at comedy that had not been seen before on a wide scale in the Bollywood industry. “Arjun Patiala is a kind of comedy that hasn't been attempted in Bollywood before. It's an experiment in that regard. As an industry, we need to start taking risks to prosper and grow.”
