Nerkonda Paarvai, the official Tamil remake of the Bollywood hit drama Pink, became the victim of piracy just a short while after its cinematic release last week. The Ajith Kumar-starrer had been the subject of a ton of hype leading up to its release, thanks to both the legacy of the original Hindi version as well as the building anticipation of Tollywood viewers for the film. The infamous piracy hub Tamilrockers leaked Nerkonda Paarvai in its entirety, making the full film available for users to stream and download via the website’s torrent files and magnet links method of sharing movies.
This is by no means the first time that Tamilrockers has hit headlines for their piracy work. The website is well-known for leaking films just a few hours after their cinematic releases, that too in high definition and in their entirety. As indicated in their name, Tamilrockers got their footing by leaking primarily Tamil-language and other Tollywood films. But due to a rapidly growing number of users leading to an increase in demand, the site branched out to leaking Bollywood as well as Hollywood films as well. There are even plenty of Korean language films available on the website. Some of the most highly-anticipated films that found themselves leaked by Tamilrockers this year include Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Nerkonda Paarvai is a courtroom drama that follows the same premise of Pink and touches on the social issues of sexual assault and consent. Tollywood star Ajith Kumar plays the role of a lawyer that represents three women fighting their case against their assaulters. Since its release, the film has received positive reviews from critics, who have praised the message of the story as well as the performances of the lead actors.
