It’s not even been 24 hours since Godzilla vs. Kong has released in theatres that it’s pirated version has been leaked online by the notorious piracy site, Tamilrockers. And those operated Tamilrockers do know their viewer base extremely well as they’ve pirated the Hindi dubbed version of Godzilla vs Kong since that’s what is going to be more sought after online, with those interested in the English version likely to watch it in the theatres. Anyway, there’s bound to be more takers for the Hindi version of Godzilla vs. Kong in India, and Tamilrockers have used all their Machiavellian to tap into that section.
In fact, the pirated copy of the Hindi dubbed version of Godzilla vs. Kong appeared on the Tamilrockers site merely a couple of hours after the movie hit screens across the country, going the show the efficient network and proficiency with which those running the website operate with, not to mention the gall given the prior action taken on people involved with the website, including some of the proprietors having faced jailtime. Undeterred, Tamilrockers continues to pirate movies, and have done so with several OTT releases, too, during lockdown. Now that films are back in theatres post lockdown, they, too, are back to their favourite target.
Reviewing the movie, BollywoodLife gave it four out of five stars and wrote: “Godzilla vs. Kong is directed to near “popcorn” perfection by one of Hollywood’s most exiting young horror filmmakers, Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest), who brings all his horror expertise to deliver a terror-fic smash-em, sock-em, and even scare-em sci-fi extravaganza. Thankfully, he doesn’t go for the overkill in pitting Godzilla against King Kong, dedicating three major sequences to their bouts, which are alone worth the price of admission. This is a the big-screen mashup we’ve been waiting for ages in theatres ever since lockdown struck. And for diehard fans of TOHO’s original Japanese monster movies, the climax is nothing short of an orgasmic, retro, theme-park ride, almost seeming like two heroes joining hands to take on a more powerful villain.”
Anyway, we hope the authorities find some way to permanently combat the menace of Tamilrockers.
