Tamil Rockerz - Review ( Web Series )

 This Web Series has taken one of the interesting things that happened to the Indian Cinema Industry starting from Tamil Cinema and affected the revenue of the Industry heavily through online Movie Piracy.  

Tamil Rockerz - Tamil Web Series Review

Before talking about this Tamil Web Series, we shall have a look at the Tamil Rockers website which is the baseline of this web series:

Tamil Rockers:

Tamil Rockerz - this name was so popular in Tamilnadu and even throughout India because this website was releasing many Tamil Movies and other language movies in India and even some Hollywood movies without any permission from the Film Production teams or from the Government. from the late 1990s till now. 

That website was making money through online monetization. Initially, this website was collecting content openly from its members and commenting on each other after uploading the content online. 

Those members and admin of the website were uploading full movies on black websites such as torrents and the link to those pages were posted in Tamil Rockers. 

Now about this web series, here is the beginning stage of Tamil Rockers, the evolution of it as a massive threat to the Cinema Industry, and how some of the important persons who were handling Tamil Rockers were arrested by police against movie piracy have been taken in account to talk in this web series. 

  • There are many cinematic elements have been added to this web series such as many scenes with emotional drama. 
  • The baseline of this web series is so unique and is not touched by any Tamil movie/web series yet. 
  • The casting of this web series is so good that the on-screen presence of Arun Vijay has given big strength to this web series. 
  • Even though M S Baskar comes in only one scene, his immersed acting has added value to the concept of the web series that the scene point outs, how Cinema Industry people are affected by the Tamil Rockerz website. 
  • The acting of Azhagam Perumal has given soul to his role in each and every scene he comes on screen. 
  • This is yet another mass medium ( Web series with well-known casts and crew ) talking in detail about how the Cinema directors are facing problems before their movie gets released such as pressure from the production team, the hero of the movie, and other things. 
  • The endpoint of this web series that gives leads to the Part 2 of Tamil Rockers is really interesting. 

For me, the following are the issues raised in my mind while watching this web series. 

  • The foremost thing is the detailing handled in this web series about Tamil Rockers. Many of us, especially from the 1990s know very well how Tamil Rockerz and other pirating websites were running at the beginning and the changes they made on the website itself as time passed. 
  • In this web series, it's shown as if the protagonist ( Arun Vijay ) gets involved in the Tamil Rockerz case after losing his wife in front of his eyes and because she likes cinema, he gets into the case. 
  • Also when he loses his wife too there was not much impact in my mind due to fewer in-depth scenes showing the bonding between this couple. 
  • There is no strong scene showing how powerful are Tamil Rockerz such as how strong web site they made. 
  • Also there could have been follow-up scenes showing if the Tamil Rockerz team was involved in Criminal activities like regular kidnaps. 
  •  With the very strong introduction scene and follow-up scenes, for me, Arun Vijay's role was like so strong and the same did not allow me to get any doubt if the Villain ( admin of Tamil Rockers ) can win the protagonist and so at some point it made me feel as if the whole remaining web series is going to be lengthy. 
Overall, if you want to know the story behind Tamil Rockers website roughly, know the struggles of Tamil cinema directors in the Industry and if you like to watch the massive presence of Arun Vijay then this web series can be watched if you have enough time.
