The extent of TamilRockers

Every day, the Google search Engine witness the search for watch free movies online. Despite the availability of various legal websites to watch and download movies, the search goes on for Tamilrockers Telugu movies, Tamilrockers Tamil movies, free movies download and what not! No day ends without someone searching for pirated content, especially movie downloads.

As cinemas are the biggest time pass for millions of people, websites like these are born every day or reincarnate. Though there are websites like movierulz which is a hub for online piracy, tamilrockers have got its own prominence, especially in the South Indian states.

And how and, In what way they bring movies within a few hours to their clickers? There’s a big story here.

But to make it short, Tamil Rockers rocked the South Indian Film Industries to no end. Whenever the film personalities threatened or asked them not to pirate their movies, Tamil Rockers challenge the concerned persons that they will upload the movie simultaneously with the release of the movie or within a few hours of the movie hitting the screens.

But why?

The Demand

One word answer. Demand. Movie going people decreased to an extent of 65 percent of what it was before 1990. Of course, the increase in population may show increased numbers, but what we are talking about here is the ratio. Families are not gracing the theaters like they did a few years ago.

The rise of ticket price is not the exact logical answer. Even in the old days when there were no other entertainment venues, at least fans tend to buy tickets for a high price, and there was always the problem of black tickets. Ticket price is only one of the many reasons for the increase in piracy sites like Tamil Rockers and youth favorite KickAss Torrents (KAT) and other torrent sites.

Of course, talking of ticket price, adjusted for inflation, an amount of 100 or 150 may not appear high but incidental costs like popcorn which costs about 200, or cool drinks and water bottles with a base price of 60 add to the burden when a middle-class family visits a multiplex. Single screen theaters have gone the way of unicorns. Means nearing their extinction.

How TamilRockers work?

Now, coming to Tamil Rockers, how can they get the prints? In what way they upload the content? The simple answer is they make deals. Deals with those who work in preview theaters for a copy, or with the Worldwide Film Distribution technology. There are different ways. But that is not the question. How to stop piracy? How, when and if sites like Tamil rockers stop?

Piracy not going to stop soon

As of now, torrents downloading and online piracy sites are not going to stop anytime soon. As said by an alleged Tamil Rockers former member, if there is no demand, sites like this, and piracy will vanish. But is it possible? Like easy money, free goods always attract people.

There is numerous news written that a member of a Tamilrockers site is arrested or one of the admins is caught by the police with help of… well, leave it. But the site or the sites are still live. Google seems to have blocked all things related to Tamilrockers from appearing in their search results? Is Google the only search engine available to the netizens?

Direct searches like Tamil Rockers will give exact results when searched from search engines like Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yandex (why not, by the Russian search engine?). Don’t people know to directly hit tamilrockers.net?

Tamilrockers Admin Arrest:

Kaala Movie Stream, Leak and Tamilrockers Torrents: 

The news of the arrest of one of the admins of TamilRockers came out a few months ago. Superstar Rajinikanth's Kaala was streamed the movie live on Facebook by a person in Singapore on the very first day. However, TFPC president Vishal was quick enough to react and get that man arrested. Admins have later deleted that video but this incident shows how big and the network is. We will have to see how and when Tamil Rockers will be stopped.

TamilRockers are not even leaving web series like Sunny Leone's biographical Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone and Sacred Games,  and popular television series like Game of Thrones et al. Everyone naturally wants to have a sneak peek at the movies and series. These leaks affect the films when they receive a mixed or negative critical response. 

Similar incidents are happening across the industries what with a bunch of online piracy hubs the world over. As quick as the concerned persons in acting against piracy, it is not just the individual efforts that help. A collective action must be taken but keeping the best interest of the audience in the minds.
