Saamy Square Leaked Online!
According to a report carried by News 18 (Tamil), Vikram’s latest release Saamy Square has fallen prey to piracy. The full movie has been uploaded on a few websites and is available for download. Needless to say, this is totally unacceptable and it might ruffle a few feathers.
Will This Affect The Weekend Collections?
Saamy Square hit the screens yesterday (September 22, 2018) and opened to a decent response at the Chennai box office, collecting Rs 64 Lakhs on Day 1 itself. Saamy Square has been shot against a relatively high budget and it needs to have a good first weekend in order to be a success. As it has been leaked online, the weekend collections are bound to be affected.
About Saamy Square
Saamy Square is a sequel to the 2003 release Saamy and features Vikram in a double role. Directed by Hari, it is quite an action-packed affair and features plenty of mass sequences. The film has received mixed reviews from critics, however, it is likely to appeal to the masses.
Piracy is a major problem and it has been plaguing the Tamil film industry for quite some time now. In the past, films such as Mersal and Kaala had been leaked hours after hitting the screens. And, needless to say, this affected their collections in a big way.
Even though the TFPC President Vishal has taken several steps to stop the menace, it still persists. Similarly, the steps taken by several government authorities too have had limited impact. Let us hope that those in the industry are able to find a solution to this ASAP!
