The moment we hear the name “Jio”, we get nostalgic about the hype created by the connection launched by Ambanis. However, there is an illegal site named “Jio Rockers” that offers pirated cinema without payment. Piracy has created ripples in the movie industry. It hampers the box office collections adversely. We were often asked to write an essay on “Science is a curse or boon” during our school days. Now, we can say that scientific discoveries like the internet proved to be a curse for the movie industry. Easy access to a stable net connection gives rise to piracy. Sites such as Jio Rockers promote piracy by offering newly released movies without paying a cent. The movies are also available in HD format. Anybody can get movies from this site without paying a cent. As a result, none of the viewers want to pay the price of a ticket. While most of the standalone halls and multiplexes go empty, people watch the movies from home. So, science (as is evident through websites promoting piracy) is a boon for movie lovers, but a curse for those who make quality cinema.
The history of Jio Rockers:
This site is enriched with a never ending assemblage of primarily Tamil and Telugu cinema available. Apart from these two languages, movies in Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi are available in this site too. A few English movies may also be got from here. All the movies are free of cost. So, we can say that it supports piracy since makers of such movies miss out on making any profit. It had come into existence since 2017. The viewers do not have to download the movies. They may also select a movie online from the list sorted by their release dates. After that, they may watch the movie online. Movie buffs are delighted with this site as films are available here are in HD format.
This site in India:
Many countries like India as well as the USA have declared piracy to be unlawful. As a result, Jio Rockers and many other sites that offer pirated movies free of cost have been prohibited in these countries. However, the makers of Jio Rockers change the domain extension of the site to avoid stringent measures.
Films available here:
Jio Rockers is famous to have an awesome collection of Bollywood movies. Apart from that, it has a stock of movies in, Tamil and Telugu language. Celebrated cinema-like” Prati Roju”, “Ruler” and “Donga” are available here. Movie buffs say that almost every Tamil or Telugu movie where a celebrity has acted, is available here. Old movies like “Kabir Singh”, “Baahubali”, “Guna 369”,”Dabangg 3” and “Joker”, are available here too.
The administration has taken steps:
The ruling party of India has prohibited piracy. A Bengali proverb points out that anyone who commits a crime is as guilty as the one who tolerates it. So, a person who downloads a pirated movie is as liable to be punished as the person who has uploaded one in such a site or in Torrent.
