  • When we search for online movie for showing those portals to us then many results would come in front of us on the screen. But all of them would not be delivering the real value and some of them might be too misleading as they will eventually lead us for some payment to be made and task to be done in lieu of which we would score some point and then view the movie and many such complex traps made by these sites. Generally, in Google search, because Google does it with much digital care and concern, we can assume that the top searched results will generally be reliable.

    There are many popular streaming sites free as well as paid where one can view the movies legally but all movies would not be available free there and if we click for a particular one then they may ask us to join their premium plan.

Some of these sites are Voot, Jio Cinema, YouTube Movies, Hotstar, SonyLiv, Vudu, Crackle, TubiTV, Viewster, Popcornflix, Moviesfoundonline, 123movie, Retrovision, Yahoo view, The internet archive, IMDb TV, Kanopy, Plex, Yidio etc.

  • We can watch movies online other than netflix, amazon prime, hotstar as there are several other websites available and these are legal. Mostly they provide content on paid basis. It is also true that if you will type a bollywood movie name in google and search to watch online, many links are shown. But they all do not provide the full content. They only provide trailers or short movie/video clips. But some time they provide poor quality content that may be pirated.

  • My grand mother even in 1950's did not like if one tell the movie was not good. She used to tell they are taking film by spending huge amount and effort but we are telling it it is bad by giving 45 pause (then the minimum ticket in theaters was 45 pause only). Similar to that if we watch movies in CD or online it is unjust as we are insulting their effort. It is okey if we see old movies in online as we cannot get the copy in theaters.

  • It is allowed to watch movies online. There are some paid channels and some are free channels. When you type the name of a movie in Google search you will get many search results and you can watch the movies as per that checking list.

  • If you wish to watch latest movies online then most of the times they are available on Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Hotstar which you already know. Now if you search for other means to watch latest movies then be assured that the links that you get in search results are mostly spammy links.

    Even if you are able to go to site where they are streaming movies then it will be only for few minutes or so and then they would be ask for payment or subscription. These also lead you to many dangerous sites where your details may get stolen and if any payment is made then your financial details will be at huge risk.

    To cut the story short any sites streaming latest movie online is doing it illegally as it must have not purchased the rights for public display. Most movies streaming sites pay a premium or purchase the rights to display the same to its paid audience as done in theatres.

    If you wish to watch old movies then you can find them on YouTube for free or pay a small amount to watch the same.

    Most sites streaming online movies are not based in the country in which they are streaming and are always streamed from a server outside the country.

    Sites providing links to free movies get banned very soon and also torrents are now banned in India, although many people still download and watch movies online or through torrent by using technical means not known to people in general.
