Jodi, the musical drama starring Diljit Dosanjh and Nimrat Khaira, has become the latest victim of online piracy. The film, which was released worldwide on May 5, has been leaked online by the notorious website Filmyzilla. The website has uploaded the full movie in HD quality and made it available for free download.
The film, directed by Amberdeep Singh, explores the folk music in Punjab during the 80s and is based on the life story of Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjot Kaur, the most celebrated musical duos in the region. The film also features Drishtii Garewal, Hardeep Gill, Gurshabad Singh and others in supporting roles.
The leak of the film is a huge setback for the makers, who had high hopes for the film after receiving positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. The film was praised for its authentic portrayal of the Punjabi culture, its catchy songs and its powerful performances by the lead actors.
The makers had also taken several precautions to prevent the leak of the film, such as releasing it only in theatres and not on any OTT platform. However, their efforts seem to have gone in vain as Filmyzilla managed to get hold of a pirated copy of the film and uploaded it on their website.
Online piracy is a serious crime that affects the film industry adversely. It not only causes huge losses to the producers and distributors, but also deprives the artists and technicians of their rightful share of revenue. It also affects the quality of cinema, as it discourages filmmakers from investing in new and innovative projects.
We urge our readers to refrain from downloading or watching pirated content from illegal websites, and support the film industry by watching movies only in theatres or on authorized platforms. Piracy is a punishable offence under the Indian law, and anyone found indulging in it can face legal action.
