Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 3 has become another victim of piracy website Tamilrockers. The Ahmed Khan directorial also features Riteish Deshmukh, Shraddha Kapoor, Ankita Lokhande and Jaideep Ahlawat among others.
Tamilrockers regularly leaks major films, TV shows and even web series. It puts up the content as soon as it is released or aired. The quality is often high definition. The website keeps changing its domain extension every single time, so it is hard to block every extension it comes up with. Even the blocked URLs can also be accessed through proxy servers.
Despite stringent laws and a high court order blocking similar piracy hubs, Tamilrockers has not stopped being a troublemaker.
Tamilrockers has not only successfully evaded authorities, but it has also acquired an audience for itself.
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars in a mixed review. Shubhra concluded the review by noting, “The main act has Shroff show us just how he’s conquered the action space. And two tiny, almost throwaway things, which you cling on to in this much too stretched saga, despite all the hustle-bustle: when a cop (yes, Jackie’s here too, as a brave, sacrificial daddy-o) says that rioters have no dharm aur mazhab, which gives off a sharp resonance. And when sonny boy strikes another for Hindu-Muslim amity, and rescues not just Hindustanis but also Pakistanis from the Jehadis, who are the enemies-of-us-all.”
She added, “These bits are not as gung-ho as they would have been in the masala era of the 70s and 80s, but I will take this pallid stab — any thing to hold on to in these dark days — and wave back at our baaghi while doing so.”
