Sarileru Neekevvaru, starring Mahesh Babu, has been leaked online by piracy website Tamilrockers. The Telugu film was leaked for illegal download shortly after it was released in theaters.
Sarileru Neekevvaru also stars Vijayashanti and Rashmika Mandanna.
The Mahesh Babu starrer, which hit theaters on January 10, has been receiving an overwhelming response from fans.
Not just Sarileru Neekevvaru, films like Tanhaji, Chhapaak and Darbar among others have also been leaked on Tamilrockers.
Despite stringent laws and a high court order blocking piracy hubs, Tamilrockers has not stopped being a troublemaker. As the website keeps changing its domain extension, it is hard to block every extension it comes up with. In fact, even the blocked URLs can also be accessed through proxy servers.
Homecivil.com’s Manoj Kumar R gave the film 2.5 stars and wrote in his review, “Mahesh Babu has played the role of Major Ajay in his latest movie Sarileru Neekevvaru. Ajay may be a trained soldier, but he’s a quintessential fan of Telugu cinema at heart. He behaves like a typical Telugu hero, who is very particular about his looks and his judgements are driven by hyper-masculinity. Also, he is all over the place. On odd days, he seems to head a bomb disposal squad, and on even days, he leads a squad of foot soldiers into a rescue operation. Well, accuracy seems to be the first casualty of the act of glamorization.”
