- In India before 2016, internet charges were expensive there was an absence of platforms where one could watch movies or web series. All were at the mercy of their cable TV providers but after 2016 ISP providers have provided competitive prices for the internet and the digital divide in India has decreased. There is a boom in OTT companies like never before. Tech giants from Amazon to Netflix all have launched OTT apps and sites in India. Even channel providers such as Sony, and Network 18 also came up with OTT apps such as Sony Liv, and Voot.
- The dynamism of watching television has also changed. ISP providers like Jio have bought telecast rights for the IPL sports franchise, FIFA 2022 World Cup to attract more and more viewers to their platform.
- Post-pandemic, there was a decrease in cinema-goers also for a brief duration the movie production houses also released movies over the OTT platform. “Rajkumar Rao” starring in “Chhalaang”, and “Varun Dhawan” starring in “Coolie No 1” were released on Prime. Movies such as “Gunjan Saxena” were released on Netflix and actor “Sushant Singh Rajput’s” eventual movie was released over Disney Hotstar. The web series industry however since its inception has always relied upon OTT platforms for releases.
- Because of the increasing demand, many actors now prefer working in web series to conventional movies. Actors such as “Pankaj Tripathi”, IITian “Jitendra Kumar”, “Ali Faizal”, “Jaideep Ahlawat” and “Amit Sadh” have played iconic roles in the web series.
- These platforms have helped production houses in increasing their viewers which was earlier impossible because of limited seats and screens in cinemas and multiplexes.
Why OTT platforms are better?
- The content on these platforms showcases new talents. The overall budget for creating an OTT series comes lower than conventional movies hence the entry barrier for becoming a creator is lowered which motivates many creators. The remaining amount is devoted to the story and screenplay which is not the
case with big production houses. In big production houses, a large chunk of the budget is paid to the actors/actresses thereby cost-cutting is done in the story and screenplay.
- Here shows/movies are segregated according to genres and one can watch Tollywood, Bollywood, and Hollywood movies dubbed in multiple languages. The web series is divided into seasons and a few episodes which can be watched according to convenience.
- Since you pay to get access to these platforms you will experience ads free streaming and you get the option to skip the introduction part. Their interface is easy to navigate and allows users to choose from horror, drama, K-pop, and many other genres. OTT consumes comparatively less data.
There are some limitations related to these platforms. As the contents of these platforms are unique, you might have to pay for multiple subscriptions to enjoy some contrast. Therefore people often search for websites that provide free content from these websites and make your work easy. Filmy Zilla is one such website that allows you to explore unmatched content from all streaming platforms. It not only saves your money but also time by providing all content under one platform.

- Countless times you will witness pop-ups of unwanted ads that might irritate you getting rid of them may seem impossible to you. They may redirect you and compel you to download third-party or unwanted apps therefore you must act vigilant in each step.
Are websites that allow free downloads of movies/series legal?
- Without any hesitation, the answer to this question is no. These torrent websites are not legal but they do not provide you with the content directly they redirect to the link of the file. You must always watch content from the original source.
- Downloading and storing the content is considered piracy and is a punishable offense in India. If found guilty you can either be awarded imprisonment or a fine or both in rare cases because you will be violating rules related to (IPR)Intellectual Property Rights.
- On moral grounds, you will be disregarding the efforts made by the original creators who will be losing a fair deal of capital to piracy.
Movies/web series often contain adult-rated content, violence, and racial or bad language which may not be appropriate for all users and may be traumatizing to some. Therefore it becomes important for a user to read the disclaimer and rating of a movie before downloading.
