- Advertisement -

Movies are fun, right? Almost everyone watches movies, some people watch movies regularly, some people not so regularly. But we can say it pretty confidently that every person reading this has at least watched one movie in their entire life.

Apart from entertainment, movies also give a lot of information (even if it’s unintentional) about the culture, places, religion, rituals, and a lot more about the country in which they are shot. With increasing resources, movies are not just meant for cinema halls. You can now watch any of your favorite movie, newly released or an old one easily on your TV screens, laptops, mobile phones having the comfort of your house.

In this article, we are going to show you some methods (almost every possible method) to download movies free of cost on your devices. So, try out all the methods mentioned below to download some of your favorite movies.

Why Should You Download Movies?

Well, as mentioned earlier movies have a very deep significance in the cultural context and not just entertainment. In some sense, movies are a lot like literature, they capture a timeframe. So, if we want to look back in time, movies are a good and easy way. For example, Sholay(1975) is one of the most iconic Bollywood movies of all time, if we want to see what acting, sets, locations looked like in 1975 we can directly watch Sholay movie. Now the problem is that it is not broadcasted in cinema halls nowadays. So, the only way is to download movies and watch them. So, if you want to watch an old movie, you will have to download it.

Another thing is the region barrier. It happens a lot of times that some of the most iconic movies were never meant to be released worldwide, or even nationwide and only after they get taken off from the halls, their true value is realized. Oscar-winning movie like Parasite (2019) is a Korean movie, and because it won Academy Award in 2020 for the best picture, it was released worldwide and on OTT to watch anywhere. Tummbad (2018) is another great example in which an iconic movie got its true recognition after some months when people downloaded it and watched it.

There are some other benefits too, you can watch a downloaded movie anytime, you can watch it anywhere, if you have a movie available offline, you can watch it even in remote areas where the internet connection isn’t that good or not available.

With all those benefits of downloading movies, let us see some of the steps and methods by which we can download them and save them offline.
