Smartphones have ceased to be what they used to be - a mere communication device. Apart from helping you get your work done, they also double up as one of the best options for entertainments needs as well. Video streaming has been one of the excellent means of how these little devices have been able to improve our lives for better.

With over 5 billion people having access to smartphones, it goes without saying that they have become an indispensable part of our being. With the dwindling data charges and extremely powerful innards that smartphones are built with, they have been our best companions for consuming entertainment in highest quality.
From that perspective, and given the fact that Bollywood has been world's largest movie industry - what would we think about the apps available on the Android ecosystem? Well, here is the list of best Android apps for watching Bollywood movies.

We would list out the apps that would come under both free and paid variety. In fact, the entertainment apps available on Android are available in different formats. There are apps that offer you movies free of cost. But such apps are supported by ads and you would need to be ready to face ads even between the movie as well. Another genre of movie apps works in an in-app purchases mode.


Coming from Star TV network, Hotstar is one of the most popular movie streaming services in India. Basically catering to the fans of the programmes on Star TV Network, the app offers a huge content for free in terms of movies as well.
