Tamil horror comedy Pottu has been leaked online by piracy site Tamilrockers. Written and directed by Vadivudaiyan, the film stars Bharath, Iniya, Namitha and Srushti Dange.
Bankrolled by John Max for Shalom Studios, the film has also been dubbed in Telugu (Bottu) and Hindi (Bindi).
Pottu opened on March 8 to poor reviews. The Times of India noted in its review, “You feel like walking out of the theatre right after the first few minutes of Pottu — there is a lot of screaming, jarring noise in the background, people get killed randomly and you have no inkling of what’s happening.”
Despite strict laws, film piracy is still prevalent due to websites like Tamilrockers. Tamilrockers keeps changing its domain name, making it difficult to track them.
In the recent past, Tamilrockers has leaked movies like Sathru, Badla, Captain Marvel, Thadam, 90 ml, Luka Chuppi, Kanne Kalaimaane Pettikadai and Total Dhamaal among others.
