At a time when the entertainment industry has been seriously impacted by a pandemic, piracy websites have also become a new headache for filmmakers. Although the stars fail to get the viewers to theaters, these piracy websites just sprinkle their wounds with salt. Websites of movie piracy are at work and their latest victim is starry Master Thalapathy Vijay. On Jan 13, 2020, 10 months after its expected release date, one of the most awaited Master movies hit the big screens (Apr 9, 2020).
The highly awaited film, starring Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi, is the first film to be released in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The directory of Lokesh Kanagaraj has now become the latest victim of, among many others, piracy sites such as Tamilrockers and Telegram. The film is available for free download in HD quality. The leak could impact the film’s box office collection and this has left the makers worried.
The film revolves around a young professor named John Durairaj aka JD (played by Vijay), who is an alcoholic and is sent for a span of three months to a juvenile home to teach children. He comes face-to-face with a deadly gangster (Vijay Sethupathi) during his stay there, and their confrontation forms the crux of the film.
