One of the most awaited Kannada movies of this year, Pailwan (Bailwaan in Tamil and Pehlwan in Telugu) was facing bad news even before its box office release. Pehlwaan is one of those high budget flicks which will depend extensively on its opening week collections. Pailwaan is released in Kannada, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil versions.
However, bad news awaits the makers of Kannada superstar Sudeep Kiccha’s mega budget Kannada movie “‘Pailwaan” as Tamilrockers, a leading torrent site for movies download has already leaked the full movie online in Tamil version online.
Pailwan will hit the screens across India this weekend. Pailwaan’s cast includes the Sudeep Kiccha, Aakanksha Singh, Suniel Shetty and Kabir Duhaan Singh in the lead roles.
Will Bailwan’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Box Office Collections?
Bailwan’s budget for production is around INR 45 Crores which is not a small number by any means. Considering the amount of investment at stake, the early pirated release of Pailwan movie online for free download, is likely to dent its earnings.
As emphasized earlier, modern day movies depend a lot on opening week collections as a significant source of return on investment. With the advent of Tamilrockers and other online movie streaming sites, film makers face a daunting task of dealing with this situation.
However, Bailwaan is hyped well enough and the cast of Sudeep Kiccha will definitely attract their fan base to the theaters to watch the movie. Also, Pehlwan promises to be a visual treat for the amount of money invested in production and watching it on a mere 480P or 720P print will not do justice for the visuals at stake, we believe.
On the other hand, first hand reactions of Bailwaan are very promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Pailwaan on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run.
