Sivappu Manjal Pachai, written and directed by Sasi, has been leaked by Tamilrockers. The film stars Siddharth, GV Prakash and Lijomol Jose among others. After releasing film after film, the website has become a bane for film makers and producers and it is no longer restricted to Tamil films. They even have the content up in high definition. And just like The Pirate Bay, efforts to stop Tamilrockers have failed so far. Although the main site is banned, pirates find alternative ways like proxies to access the site and content. The site owners also have other sites under their control.
Tamilrockers, like its name suggests, was limited to Tamil film industry but has since expanded to Bollywood and even Hollywood films. It regularly leaks major films, TV shows and even web series and puts up the content as soon as it is released or aired. Tamilrockers has leaked dozens of movies over the last few years, most of them just hours after a film's release which in turn effects the revenue for the film, its actors and filmmakers. Lyca Productions took exception to Tamilrockers after Rajinikanth’s 2.0, the most expensive film ever made in India, was leaked.
Earlier, Delhi Court had ordered for these piracy websites to be blocked, but unfortunately, Tamilrockers still continue to create chaos for filmmakers. The website is able to continuously leak films online by perpetually changing its domain extension and can also be accessed through proxy servers. Major films including the likes of the Hindi remake of The Lion King, Spider-Man: Far From Home, MIB: International, Avengers: Endgame, Oh Baby and more became a target for the Tamilrockers and were released online.
