The success of Petta lies in the fact that it doesn't pretend to be anything else.

Sun Pictures has filed the complaint against Tamilrockers and such websites not to release movie online. Although the movie does not have anything fresh to offer, the superstar's vintage styles have connected well with the audience, which has come as a good sign for the film to set the box office on fire.

This is not the first film of Thalaivar that has been leaked by TamilRockers.

The movie which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vijay Sethupathi in pivotal roles was released today worldwide in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages but soon reports in Indian media suggested that the movie has been leaked online on a website called tamilrockers.

There has been no backing down for piracy sites even after Madras High Court's order to 37 Internet Service Providers (ISP) to block over 12,000 sites which distribute pirated copies of recent releases.

Back in Mumbai too, a theatre had hosted the first day first show of Petta for fans, the celebrations for which began from 5.30 am. Angry fans tweeted to the president of Tamil Film Producers Council, Vishal, demanding that legal action be taken against the website.
