The illegal digital piracy website Filmyzilla recently downloaded the full 1962: The War in the Hills series from its official website.
Movie and entertainment piracy is still a huge problem in many countries, including India. And with many movies making their way to OTT platforms due to lockdown restrictions, it has become even easier for illegal sites to leak them hours after their release. Filmyzilla is probably the most popular website to leak digital content religiously. The most recent crime was for the movie 1962: The War in the Hills to download.
Filmyzilla Leaks 1962: the War in the Hills full series download
1962: The War in the Hills is an Indian war drama inspired by true events starring Abhay Deol. The series officially aired on Hotstar on February 26, 2021. As a result of the Filmyzilla leak, the series will undoubtedly have suffered a huge loss to creators in terms of audience and revenue. It should be noted that illegal downloading of content in India is considered a crime and can have various consequences. There is no doubt that many viewers get stuck in this vicious circle every day.
1962: The War in the Hills is a fictional take on one of the fiercest battles between 125 Indian soldiers, led by their leader Major Suraj Singh, and 3000 Chinese for the freedom of Ladakh. The series tries to give viewers a close-up view of the lives of the soldiers who sacrifice themselves day in and out for the future of this country. The Abhay Deol starrer is part of Hotstar specials and gets a lot of attention online. However, it has received mixed reviews for its long running time and poor visual effects. But many have actually backed this series, saying that such content should be released and encouraged more often.
OTT platforms bring new movies from all over the world to their library every Friday due to the ongoing pandemic situation and lockdown restrictions that keep people from going to theaters. Rumor has it that filmmakers are in talks about recording digital releases as a way to stand alongside theater releases in the future. Hotstar, the 1962 series distributor, offers several packages from the nominal amount that can be considered worthwhile for the amount of content it brings to the table.
