2017 was a great year for Indian Cinema Industry. Baahubali: The Conclusion, a Tollywood studio movie, & Dangal, a Bollywood movie, together broke all records by crossing the Rs. 3,000+ Crore mark (approximately USD 465 million) from box office collection worldwide! Therefore, it won’t be wrong to say that the craze & demand of watching Indian Cinema exists across the globe! And since not all movies have the budget to go global, they are only released in India. Therefore, in this post, I will give you nine places to watch Bollywood movies online. On these sites, you even get regional movies in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, etc. and of course, Hindi movies online as well.
Note: All the websites below are entirely legal to watch online Bollywood movies. Since many other websites are providing pirated content, it is essential to know how to check if a website is streaming movies illegally.
Watching movies on any pirated platform may not be a problem currently. But, it will be in the upcoming years. Also, it is imperative that we take this step as a responsible human being ourselves and stop watching pirated content as it severely affects the industry.
But, don’t worry. There are many places where you can watch Hindi movies legally. Some of these websites also have their Android and iOS Apps to watch free Bollywood movies.
Also, if you are willing to shred some monthly/yearly subscription amount, you can even get the latest & unlimited Bollywood movies to watch online!
However, Hotstar, Amazon Prime, and Netflix are some of the paid subscription websites to watch latest Bollywood films.
Also, check out some of the legal sites to watch free movies online if you’re interested in watching Hollywood.
Now, let’s see what the websites have to offer:
Box TV or www.boxtv.com is a venture by the Times Internet, headed by Pratik Mazumder, VP and HOM of Times Internet. I am sure this information is enough to convince you that this website is legal.
You can also check out our comprehensive review of BoxTV.
Box TV offers you many old Hindi movies & regional movies to watch. The videos are available in various local languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Bengali, Marathi, Bhojpuri, etc.
Not a great platform for latest, or even the non-trending movies, but yes, it’s free. And if you’re an old Bollywood movie lover, this is an excellent platform for you!
Some of the free movies to watch on BoxTV are: Phas Gaye Re Obama, Alone, Gulaab Gang, Singh is Bling, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, etc.
Spuul is another website to watch Bollywood movies online. This site also offers a premium plan subscription as well as a rental option that you have to finish watching in 72 hours.
The range of movies is excellent. A Hindi movie lover is going to love this platform too, as the films range from Silsilay to Harry Met Sejal! Though not all the movies are available for free, you may be lucky to find the film you want to watch, for free!
Some movies available on Spuul for free or during the free trial are Lootera, Once upon a time in Mumbai Dobara, Coffee with D, Kabali, Wazir, Baaghi, etc.
Well, Reliance has made sure that the perks of getting a Jio sim never stop!
The initial offering by Reliance for the customers was free internet! Now, they are providing Jio users free Bollywood movies to watch! Both online and through the app!
Apart from movies, there are many other TV Shows, Short Films, etc. that you can enjoy on the Jio Cinema site or app!
Some movies available on Jio Cinema are Queen, Bajirao Mastani, Tamasha, Wake Up Sid, English Vinglish, etc.
#6. Eros Now
Who doesn’t know about Eros Now! They are a pioneer in production in the Bollywood industry.
It’s an effort from the industry’s side to provide that content for free which is not generating any more revenue for them. That’s fair enough! I’m just surprised as to why there are only a few free movies to watch.
However, if you have access to JioCinema, you also have access to unlimited movies on Eros Now! If you don’t, then you can go for a paid subscription based on your country.
Free Movies available on Eros Now are Shamitabh, Ferrari ki Sawaari, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Son of Sardaar, Go Goa Gone, Qurbaani, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Saajan, Ra-One, etc.
As it is apparent, it’s a product of Sony, so the website is obviously legal! SonyLiv is the right choice for you in the cases if:
- You would like movies, TV shows, and sports, all at one place
- You want the platform to work on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, and Smart TV!
Apart from full-length movies and TV Shows, you can enjoy various other mini-clippings too!
All the KBC Fans, this is the place for you! For all the movie lovers, there’s not much to explore for free. But Regional-Movies can be seen without having to worry about a subscription. Some of the free movies available on SonyLIV are Kanchana Returns, Dynamite, Ekkadiki, etc.
Voot is the latest Movies & TV Shows Portal by Viacom 18 Network. You must have noticed that a lot of YouTube videos have been removed and are now only available on Voot, such as MTV Unplugged Videos.
It is natural that a lot of their in-house produced content is available for free. You can find a lot of movies, original TV-Shows, and songs on Voot that are provided by Viacom 18. The best part about Voot is that it doesn’t require any sign-up or paid subscription!
You can watch Queen, Bajirao Mastani, Namastey London, Drishyam, Cocktail, Gangs of Wasseypur, Jab We Met, Kahaani, and other such Bollywood movies online for free.
#3. Yupp TV
Yupp TV is one of the biggest players in the industry of OTT Service Providers. It features 250+ TV Channels, and thousands of Movies & TV Shows, available in 14 languages!
There is something on Yupp TV for everybody – Kids Channels, News, Self Help, etc.
While the app or website is free to watch (with ads), but with a small pass of Rs. 30/week, you can access over 150 Live TV Channels, thousands of movies, and the best part – you get no advertisements!
Movies available for free on Yupp TV are Kabali, Kya Kool Hain Hum, Mastizaade, Hawaizaada, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Main aur Charles, etc.
We all know about the Star India Ltd product – Hotstar! They’ve been in the news recently for ‘showing’ Game of Thrones Season 7. It was sad to see one of the episodes getting leaked from Star India’s internal showcase portal. However, they did apologise for it.
But, regardless of what happened, they were the first to get GoT to India, officially! We all know how you watched the game of thrones before Hotstar. (Hint: Torrent)
Therefore, there is enormous respect for Hotstar for bringing the whole idea of an app that brought back old shows and movies like Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, Koffee with Karan, Ishq, Khilaadiyon Ka Khiladi and various other Hindi Movies!
The above is a screenshot of Gentleman, a 2017 movie. Well, I know the movie was a flop, but you’re getting entertainment for free!
Hate Story 3, Golmaal 3, 2 States, MS Dhoni, Jolly LLB 2, Action Jackson, Housefull 3, etc. are some free films on Hotstar!
Well, what is it that YouTube doesn’t provide? It is the pioneer of pioneers in delivering free movies, TV Shows, Videos, etc.
However, it’s not the YouTube team which uploads the content. The people who do it are real people and organisations from around the world! And some of them even allow you to download the movies or TV shows from YouTube!
If you wish to watch the latest movies, then you may have to pay for it. But, for viewing any of the old films, the only pain you may have to face is getting interrupted by in-between advertisements!
You can watch Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, Lakshya, Shaurya, D-Day, etc. for free on YouTube!
Many websites will come in the search results of Google when you look for places to watch free Bollywood movies online. However, not all sites that show up are legal.
Therefore, it is essential to know which platforms are safe and which are not.
