Bad news for actor Vikram

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Vignesh Shivan had requested Tamil Rockers, a popular destination for pirated movies, not to upload their movie Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and other releases like Sketch and Gulaebaghavali. Unfortunately, the plea has fallen on deaf ears and the website went on with its illegal activities.

In what could be a big headache for the makers, the pirated copies of Sketch, in different resolution and quality, have been uploaded to TamilRockers and other torrent sites. Some websites are streaming the film and crazy fans of Chiyaan are sharing the bits and pieces of the flick on social media platforms.

Sketch has opened to mixed reviews with critics pointing out that it is a usual commercial entertainer that solely banks on Vikram. The makers of the film were planning to cash in on the Pongal holiday season, but the piracy is feared to take a toll on the collection of the movie.

The Kollywood, like other industries, has been battling piracy for long. In the past few years, online piracy has become rampant thanks to digitalisation and with the internet being accessible in every nook and corner of the world.

It is believed that the torrent sites operate from overseas and have access to the film hours after the first show outside India. As a result, many big banner films, as well as small movies, hit the internet immediately after the release.

Actor Vishal, the president of Producers' Council and secretary of Nadigar Sangam, has waged war against piracy and has taken a slew of measures to check the menace, but it has gone in vain as websites find new ways to reach the people.

Coming back to Sketch, it is an action thriller in which Vikram and Tamannah Bhatia play the leads. Directed by Vijay Chander, the film is set in North Chennai.

Agnyaathavaasi beats Baahubali

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Pawan Kalyan's Agnyaathavaasi (Agnathavasi/Agnyathavasi) has made a brilliant collection at the US box office in the premieres and beaten the records of Baahubali: The Beginning and Khaidi No 150.

Agnyaathavaasi, which is also known as PSPK25, is one of the most-talked-about Telugu movies of 2017, but it will clash with Balakrishna's Jai Simha and Suriya's Gang at the box office. Its theatrical rights were sold for exorbitant prices and in a bid to recover the distributors' investments, the makers decided to release it in the cinema halls two days ahead of other movies.

LA Telugu had acquired the overseas distribution rights of Agnyaathavaasi for Rs 19. 50 crore and had grand plans for release and promotion in the international markets especially in North America. The distributors had booked nearly 600 screens in the US for the premiere shows on Tuesday and also opened its advance booking 23 days before the film hit the screens.

Agnyaathavaasi has received a fantastic response in its pre-sales in the country and crossed the mark of $1 million at the US box office, even before the premiere show began. The movie went on to beat even Hollywood movies like Jumanji, Insidious and Star Wars in the online ticket booking.

Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted, "The pre-sales collection of #Agnyaathavaasi has crossed $1 Million dollars even before a single show is screened. PSPK's cult craze and Trivikram's following along with good trailers/songs and excellent planning by overseas distributor LAtelugu made it possible!

According to early updates, Agnyaathavaasi has collected $1,305,655 at the US box office in the premieres and the movie would easily surpass the mark of 1. 5 million in the country. The movie has shattered the records of Baahubali: The Beginning and Khaidi No 150, which grossed $1,005,630, $1,295,613 and $1,395,309, respectively at the US box office in their premieres.

Agnyaathavaasi has emerged as the second biggest Tollywood opener of all-time after Baahubali 2. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted, "#Agnyaathavaasi crosses $1. 3 Million in USA. The reported gross so far is $1,305,655 from . Crosses the premieres figure of Khaidi No 150. It will cross the premiere number of Baahubali 1 in some time!

PaniPuri tweeted: "#Agnyaathavaasi #USA Gross till 10:45 PM EST! 1,454,868 from 485 Locations.
