At a time when people are increasingly used to watching Kuttymovies from the comfort of their home, OTT platforms are doing better and better. Many no longer feel the need to go to cinemas or cinema complexes to watch movies. But the other impact of this is the tendency to watch movies from illegal sites by downloading them illegally. Despite strict laws in place, many watch these illegally leaked movies, TV shows and series through illegal movie sites. Despite being punishable by law, it becomes a huge threat. Sites like Kutty Movies – a download site for Tamil movies – have been leaking content for years. While movie piracy is a criminal offense, it continues unabated as sites like Kutty Movies find ways to reach viewers who enjoy illegally downloading illegal movies and watching them without paying for them.
Imagine the number of losses the movie industry (and its various stakeholders, including actors, producers, directors, screenwriters, and technicians of all kinds, even mock guys) causes when movies are watched by viewers who don’t pay for them. Typically, these movies are available for free download only hours or days after their release, and sometimes, shockingly, even before their official, legitimate release. When available for free, many choose to view them through illegal sites rather than pay for them. Of course, the huge investment that goes into filmmaking does not get back to stakeholders, not only causing industry losses, but creating a whole crime network setup where ordinary viewers become a vital part. Some viewers are aware of the implications, while others are not even aware of the criminal network they feed on. This urgently needs to stop and various awareness programs need to be launched.
What is Kuttymovies?
Kuttymovies is a piracy website that features the latest Tamil movies that can be viewed online or downloaded for free. The content available on the website can be easily downloaded. The site has a huge collection of the latest releases – including blockbusters – movies released several years ago, and even old Tamil movies and Tamil TV shows. Apart from that, there are also Hindi dubbed versions of Tamil movies. Yet another attraction of Kuttymovies is the huge list of English movies in dual audio formats. These are arranged according to the year of release that is always available on the site. But the biggest attraction is offering viewers illegal leaks of movies either immediately after their official release or sometimes even before they officially premiere. Kuttymovies offers HD movie downloads and several other options that are ‘easy to use’ and therefore can be easily used by all kinds of audiences. Other piracy websites such as Tamilrockers and Movierulz in India are the main competitors.
Why Kuttymovies stands out among other illegal sites
What makes Kuttymovies “popular”, although an illegal site, is that HD movie downloads can be easily downloaded from here, and many are not even aware of its “illegal” status. Due to its varied functions, it offers stiff competition with other piracy sites. As mentioned above, this piracy website is leaking HD Tamil movies on the internet for free. But instead of directly providing the users with content to watch and download, KuttyMovies has a clearly listed set of movies that you can browse through to find movies from a variety of genres as well.
There are several sections set by language and genres, and viewers can choose movies to watch based on their choices. There are sections such as “Tamil Movies”, “Tamil Dubbed Movies Updates”, “English Movie Updates”, “English Movies” and so on.
What other illegal sites are leaking illegal movies?
Besides Kuttymovies, there are several infamous sites that leak movies from Tollywood, Bollywood, Hollywood and so on. Others are 123movies and Fmovies. Their sites have a host of the latest movies, reality shows and TV series ready to be downloaded for free. Some of the most popular illegal movie download websites include the following:
- Jio Rockers
- Film counter
- Madras Rockers
- Download hub
- 123 movies
What are the movies leaked through Kuttymovies?
Kuttymovies has played an infamous role in the leakage of some of the latest Tollywood, Hollywood and Bollywood movies, TV series, serials and shows. The popular stars have movies their fans eagerly await, and taking advantage of the crazy following of superstars – both Indian and international – these illegal sites have illegal downloadable movies, sometimes even before they are officially released. Some of the movies leaked by this site are Baahubali, Baahubali 2, Kadaram Kondan, Adithya Varma, Avengers: Endgame, Bird of Prey, Joker, Dear Comrade, Petta, Jackpot, Guna 369, Spider-Man: Far From Home , The Lion King, Darbar, Kaala, etc. Some of these have even led to the site being convicted.
If movie piracy is illegal, how do these sites exist?
Film piracy is illegal in many countries around the world, including India and the US. The government of India has banned sites such as Kuttymovies, Movierulz, 123movies, Tamilrockers and so on, but these sites are always finding new ways to survive and appearing in new avatars. Usually they keep creating new domain extensions from .com. .uz, .pn, .it etc.
How serious is the violation?
Downloading and watching illegal movies is a criminal offense. In India, according to the Cinematograph Act, shooting a movie without permission can mean a fine of up to Rs 10 lakh and a prison sentence of up to three years. It can also be dangerous for viewers as downloading such movies is a criminal offense and once proven viewers may also have to pay a hefty fine. In addition, it is a shame to cause massive losses to artists and businessmen who work hard to create movies and TV series and shows.
