The Indian film industry has gained prominence not only in the country but also all over the world. This year alone, the industry is already worth a staggering $3.7 billion and it is projected to grow even more over the next few years.
But just like other film industries, Indian film has also suffered from the setbacks caused by illegal torrent websites that have been distributing Bollywood and Hindi films for free online. One of these popular websites is Filmywap.
Filmywap is a piracy website that uploads Bollywood, Punjabi, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu and even Hollywood movies for users to download free of charge.
The Rise of Filmywap
Over the years, the website has gained a strong following from millions of users around the world. That’s especially so because it allows for unlimited access to movies and TV shows within just hours from their release in theaters or on subscription-based streaming portals.
Filmywap also uploads web series, songs and music videos adding to its wide repertoire of content that users can enjoy.
But since Filmywap’s business is illegal due to copyright concerns, it has been spotted and shut down by cyber police several times. The owners of the website has been smart, however, and they’ve changed domain several times to keep their operations up and running. Some of Filmywap’s proxies working today include Filmywap.age, Filmywap.in, Filmywap.one, Filmywap.ro, Filmywap.biz, Filmywap.org and Filmywap.blue.
Filmywap boasts of a wide category list of content including action movies, animated movies, Bengali movies, Indonesian movies, Hollywood movies, Arabic movies, Adventure movies and even Mexican movies.
Some of its latest content include the blockbuster hit “Avengers: Endgame” and local movies like “Thappad,” “Shooter,” “Chhappak,” “Angrezi Medium,” “Street Dancer 3D” and “Jai Mummy Di.”
Downloading movies from Filmywap is also very easy. You just need to find the working website, search or the movie that you like and click the format that you prefer for your video. It only takes a few minutes to download movies through this website and you can already start enjoying them.
Filmywap is dead, Long Live Filmywap
But like other torrent sites, Filmywap is illegal because it promotes piracy. Although you can download movies for free, you cannot guarantee that the content you’re downloading is safe and doesn’t contain any viruses.
Sharing or selling videos and music from Filmywap also gets you into more trouble under the copyright act where you could get imprisoned for 3 years and pay a fine depending on the severity of your offense.
Filmywap has been offline lately, but some of its alternative proxies and links are still working. With the website being tagged as illegal, the administrators are playing a game of hide and seek with authorities who are after businesses that release movies, music videos and other content for free.
So if you don’t want to get into trouble, just go to legal streaming websites like Hulu, Voot, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, BigFlix, Sony Liv and Hungama Movies. Although you will need to pay a monthly subscription, you can also guarantee that you can safely stream and download your favorite movies and TV shows.
