Vijay’s latest release Beast is making all the right noises. The film directed by Nelson Dilipkumar was released in theatres on April 13, a day ahead of Puthandu, the Tamil New Year. The action thriller is Thalapathy’s second film to release post the pandemic, after Master (2021), which also coincidentally received similar reactions from the audiences. Talking about the response to Beast at the theatres, the film has been getting favourable reviews from audiences and critics alike. Many are heaping praises on the incredible acting chops of the lead actors, action sequences, whistle-worthy dialogues of Vijay, songs and vibrant colour patterns used in the film. Not just that, the fans and followers of Thalapathy are now celebrating the film’s terrific response in theatres by trending #Beast on social media.
Amid all the good news, what has also caught the attention of netizens is the film’s leak on infamous websites. Apparently, Beast has leaked on various piracy-based websites, which might now impact its collection hunt at the box office. Learning the news about the leak, fans and followers of the leading man took to their social media handles to request audiences to not promote piracy through any means, and encourage virtuous process of viewing.
Well, Beast is not the first film to get leaked online. Earlier, OTT and theatrical releases like Valimai, Doctor, Annaatthe, Maanaadu, Master, Jai Bhim, Navarasa, Soorarai Pottru and Enemy also had fallen prey to piracy. Leaks of films, especially Tamil, have become a huge headache for filmmakers and bankrollers, and looks like it is high time to tighten the security in theatres and multiplexes so as to ensure safer viewing.
Beast directed by Nelson Dilipkumar features Pooja Hegde as the female lead.

Vijay starrer Beast is an out-an-out action film. Co-starring Pooja Hegde and Yogi Babu, Beast (Raw in Hindi) was released in cinema halls on Wednesday, April 13 amid much fanfare. After Master (2021), fans have been eagerly waiting for the Tamil film to release and now as it finally did, it fell prey to piracy. Various versions of Beast have been leaked online for download. Needless to say, this is going to cost the makers a huge deal of money as piracy affects film business greatly.
Nelson Dilipkumar has written and directed Beast. It is an Anirudh musical. The song Arabic Kuthu had gone viral upon release with fans making Instagram reels on it and sharing it widely on social media.
Tamilrockers website has leaked Beast online on the day of release. It is also available for download and can also be streamed online. Tamilrockers is infamous for leaking shows and movies online on release, thus costing the makers a huge deal. With Beast, they have done it again. Despite the govenment banning such websites on Google and other search engines and putting a blanket ban on piracy for the film industry’s sake, these incidents continue to happen.
Actor Vijay plays a spy called Veeraraghavan in Beast, the story of which takes place inside a mall. The East Coast Mall is under seige by terrorists and a negotiator (Selvaraghavan) is summoned by the government to start negotiations with them. The negotiator is relieved to know that an Indian soldier called Veeraraghavan (Vijay), considered to be among the best of spies, is inside the mall.
How the soldier deals with the terrorists is what the film is all about. The trailer has triggered huge excitement among fans who gathered in large numbers in theatres to watch it on the giant screen.
