Watching movies is one of the favorite pastimes for a major chunk of our population. And why not, when we have one of the largest movie industries in the world. Indian movie industries should not just restrict to the Hindi film industry, but it should include all the regional film industries too.
These regional film industries have a huge contribution to making good content movies and entertaining its audiences. The best part is, regional language movies are also dubbed in Hindi or English so that it can reach out to a larger audience.
However, for an average movie lover; it is still a tough task to find all their favorite movies on the internet. Many of these platforms charge monthly fees, and younger people, like students, can not afford to pay for them. Thus, they are deprived of watching and downloading these movies.

As the freely accessible movies are actually the pirated version of the movie.

There are anti-piracy laws in our country which protect the original producers from copyright violation and piracy. Downloading this content from the internet will be violating the copyright laws of the country.
A lot of movies that are leaked before its release are also found on these websites. However, very old movies, which do not have copyright protection any longer. And are legally and freely accessible to the public, may be considered for exemption.
Ethically also, downloading movies these sites seem questionable and controversial. Even though there may be some who may argue in favor of downloading movies. It is not ethical to download a free movie. The reason is that by doing this act. You are depriving the original owner of the movie of earning their rightful profit.
