Tamil film Ratsasan(Ratchasan), featuring Vishnu Vishal and Amala Paul in the lead, has been leaked online by Tamil Rockers. The reports in the media suggest that the film, which received mixed reviews from the audience, is the latest target of the piracy websites. The mass entertainer just started doing some good business at the Box Office. However, seems like the leak will now affect its business at the ticket window.
Ratsasan is a dark psycho thriller from director Ram Kumar who last made the enjoyable dark comedy Mundasappati. It is about a serial killer who is on a murder spree and all his victims are school girls. Vishnu Vishal, known for his lighthearted comedies, is very impressive as a cop who tries to solve the gruesome murders.
Arun Kumar (Vishnu Vishal) is an aspiring film director who has written a script on a serial killer. But he cannot find a producer as it is not a commercially viable subject. His family, including his uncle (Ramdoss), forces him to become a cop, a police sub-inspector on government compensatory quota, as his father a policeman died in harness.
After he joins the police force, a series of murders, of young school girls, happen. The scriptwriter in him pieces together evidences that suggest that all four murders are the work of a serial killer and they are interconnected. At the same time, his senior officer, a lady inspector, hates his guts as she finds his modern investigation methods do not fit in with her old school police investigation. A personal loss forces Arun to turn obsessive with the case and a clue leads him to the final twist in the tale.
The film successfully earned Rs 13. 5 crore on its Day 1 at Box Office. However, the makers are yet to take an action against the film’s leak.Not just Kollywood or Bollywood, but the film industries across the world are trying to fight piracy. In fact, Kollywood has taken several necessary measures to curb piracy under the leadership of the President of Tamil Film Producer’s Council and Secretary of Nadigar Sangam, Vishal. Many domains under the name of Tamil Rockers have been removed from the internet but no major improvement has been seen so far. Piracy continues to be a big problem in the film industry.
