The makers of Tamizh Padam 2 made a shocking announcement on the first poster that it was for one day available on Tamil Rockers. It was seen as the helplessness of the producer, as piracy was not contained in the world despite the efforts of the film industry.
True to her words, hours after Tamizh Padam 2 was released, the Shiva-Starrer is leaking on Tamil Rockers. The complete movie with different qualities was uploaded from the notorious site.
Tamizh Padam 2 is a parody film, written and directed by CS Amudhan. Shiva and Sathish each play the role of hero and villain. It's a hilarious entertainer who films the films of popular Tamil actors.
Shiva's impassive humor and dialogue delivery remain the main highlight in Tamizh Padam 2. Critics and audiences have called it a "stress buster" movie.
Following Good Word of Mouth Propaganda, the makers expected the film to set the box office alight on fire. However, piracy could be a spoiler to some extent.
Almost all major films make it today within a day after publication on the Internet. While some films made their way to the internet within one day of publication (with good or poor print quality), there were cases where some films were published online even before they went to the movies.
It should be noted that the rate of piracy has increased sharply over the years with the increase in Internet penetration around the world and in India.
Yet, the anti-piracy unit of the Tamil Film Producers' Council has fought hard against piracy since Vishal became the president of the guild. It has crashed many websites and especially several domains of Tamil Rockers.
