Great news for the movie lovers. YouTube in partnership with Hollywood & Bollywood studios is bringing free movies and TV shows to its viewers. The big names partnering with YouTube are Sony, CBS, MGM, BBC, etc.
When i heard this news, I thought the free movie showcases are going to be available only to US viewers. But surprisingly from India, I was able to view most of them (very few shown an error – This video is not available in your country) and also few popular Bollywood movies popped up in the list. Here is a screen grab of Bollywood movies in the showcase
As everyone expected all the movies have advertisements during the playback and the quality of the videos are amazingly good. Even though the movies are not the latest releases, the collection contains a good list of recent hits( Amitabachan’s Sarkaar released in 2005) and old hits. So if we are bored on any weekend and not in mood to go to a theater, just turn to YouTube movies and enjoy.
Here are few interesting movies I was able to locate on YouTube
- Sarkar ( Hindi)
- Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke ( Hindi)
- Deewana ( Hindi)
- Hera Pheri( Hindi)
- Hulchul ( Hindi)
- Emperor ( English )
- Captain Kidd ( English )
- Cliffhanger ( English – not available for Indian viewers)
