An infamous website called Tamil Rockers emerged in 2011 and offers high-quality, free illicit downloads of the newest movies and television shows. The website, which was controlled by a gang of Tamils as its name suggests, for a considerable amount of time, shook the Tamil cinema business with its unscrupulous techniques of stealing content and uploading it online, sometimes even before release.
 
Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus Hotstar joined the forces that were already fighting for the takedown of Tamil Rockers and their notoriously hard-to-find administrators during the start of the pandemic and the development of OTT in 2022. ISPs were instructed to block access to the website after it was made illegal in India.
 
In the series, Arun Vijay portrays Rudhran, a police inspector, who works to apprehend the persons responsible for movie digital piracy. As a cop, he is tasked with investigating pirated copies of Tamil films that have just opened in theatres or are upcoming.
 
Tamil Rockers persists in popping up on browsers without supervision in spite of this and changes its domain frequently in order to stay online. Actor Arun Vijay is getting ready for the launching of an OTT series on Sony Liv based on this pirate website after a Tamil film was made based on it. The series, titled Tamilrockerz, will debut on August 19, 2022, and is made by AVM Productions.
 
The series, which also stars Vani Bhojan, Ishwarya Menon, Azhagam Perumal, Vinodhini, G. Marimuthu, Tharun Kumar, Vinod Sagar, Sharath Ravi, Kaakamuttai Ramesh, Kakkamuttai Vignesh, and Ajit Joshy, is directed by Kuttram 23 director Arivazhagan. The technical team for Tamilrockerz consists of PP. Saravanan, B. Rajasekar, and Vikas Badisa for music. Stunt Silva for action, MFA for artwork, and V.J. Sabu Joseph for editing
