The Kalyan Ram starrer 118 hit screens on March 1, 2019 and opened to a decent response at the box office. The film, directed by KV Guhan, also managed to impress critics who hailed it as one of NKR's better outings. Unfortunately, the action-thriller was leaked by Tamilrockers within hours of its release and this affected its box office collections. Now, the infamous gang has leaked the Tollywood romantic-comedy 4 Letters. The film, featuring Eshwar and Tuya Chakraborty, is available for free download within two weeks of its release and this has ruffled a few feathers.
Leaked Online In Tamilrockers
In an unfortunate development, 4 Letters has been leaked online by Tamilrockers and is available for 'free download'. The leaked version is reportedly of low/ordinary audio and visual quality. Needless to say, the leak is a heartless act and it cannot be tolerated under any circumstances.
Movie Buffs Condemn The Leak
As expected, the leak has upset movie buffs big time with many of them urging fellow cinephiles to refrain from downloading the pirated copy. Some of them have also asked the authorities to take strict action against those behind the leak.
Will The Box Office Collections Be Affected?
4 Letters hit screens on February 22, 2019 alongside NTR Mahanayakudu and opened to a decent response at the box office. Its' bold scenes helped it click with Gen Y and this enabled it to make some impact at the ticket window. Nearly a week after its release, 4 Letter's run is all but over. As such, the leak is unlikely to affect its box office collections. However, it still remains a highly unethical act.
Tamilrockers, a nightmare for the film industry, is infamous for leaking new films shortly after their release. Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Petta, 2.0 and F2 are just a few of the major releases that became victims of piracy because of the group. Tamilrockers has also leaked Bollywood movies like Thugs of Hindostan, Simmba and Lukka Chuppi and proved that it is a bigger threat for the industry than expected. Even though several steps have been taken to control the menace, a concrete solution has still not been found.
