Actor Jiiva’s latest release 'Gypsy' has been leaked online by piracy website Tamilrockers. The movie, which hit screens on March 6, was leaked for illegal download shortly after it was released in theaters. Despite a high court order blocking piracy hubs and many stringent laws, Tamilrockers managed to evade the law by constantly changing its domain extension. In fact, the blocked URLs can also be accessed through proxy servers.
The movie opened to good reviews, with a revered critic calling it an “important film” in her review. She wrote, “The makers of Gypsy couldn’t have picked a better time to release their film, considering how communal violence shook the entire nation in the recent past. Award-winning filmmaker Raju Murugan’s 'Gypsy' is set against the backdrop of targeted violence against Muslims, led by mobs of Hindu nationalists. Also, the film tells the story of two lovers in the time of riots. The moment you hear the word Gypsy, their nomadic nature strikes you, besides their appearance - bleached hair, colourful clothes and fascinating beads they wear.”
The Raju Murugan directorial also stars Natasha Singh, Lal Jose, Sunny Wayne and Susheela Raman in pivotal roles.
