Gautham Karthik's Mr Chandramouli has been hit by piracy. Despite the anti-piracy cell of the Tamil Film Producers' Council (TFPC) taking proactive measures in preventing the movies from hitting torrent sites, the latest Tamil movie has appeared on Tamil Rockers and other notorious sites, which encourage illegal "free downloading" for free.
Mr Chandramouli was released on Friday, July 6, to a decent hype. The movie has met with mixed reviews from the critics. Among the new releases, this film had generated a decent hype and the makers were hoping that the film would do well during the weekend. Unfortunately, it is affected by piracy and it has to be seen how the Gautham Karthik's film performs on Saturday and Sunday.

Gautham and his father Karthik along with Regina Cassandra and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar are in the lead roles in the Tamil flick, which is funded by G Dhananjayan, S Vikram Kumar and Lalitha Dhananjayan.
