Dileep’s Ramaleela leaked in internet; Makers take swift action to nab the culprits
Film industries across the globe are in a quest to find a permanent solution to put an end to piracy, the biggest menace they have been facing for years now. Several films have suffered heavy commercial losses due to this illegal practice of leaking new releases. When compared to other language films, only very few Malayalam movies have been hit by piracy thanks to the timely efforts taken by the makers as well as the authorities.
Unfortunately, the pirated copies of actor Dileep’s latest release Ramaleela has now been leaked in the internet. The makers with the help of cyber officials have already taken action to nab the culprits. Within hours of uploading the pirated version, hundreds of users have downloaded the movie from the Torrent websites. It is highly unfortunate that people, who belong to an educated society like Kerala, are opting to watch movies illegally.
Despite the piracy issue, Ramaleela continues to do terrific business across all the centres. Releasing on September 28, the movie opened to overwhelming response from the audience. It is fast progressing to become one of the all time highest grossers of Malayalam cinema. Such a phenomenal success is even more special considering all the issues amidst which the movie got released.
Ramaleela, directed by debutant Arun Gopy is a political thriller. Sachi has scripted this movie which features Dileep as Ramanunni, a public representative. Prayaga Martin has played the female lead. Senior actors like Raadhika Sarathkumar, Mukesh, Viayaraghavan, Kalabhavan Shajon and Suresh Krishna are also part of the supporting cast. Tomichan Mulakupadam has produced the movie under his banner Mulakupadam Films.
