This has been a unique year of late and none expected for things to turn out the way it did as there have been many ups and downs for the entire world with a deadly pandemic in the form of Covid-19 having devastating results on a population of nearly 8 billion people and counting.
This is the deadliest pandemic to have come out in a century after the bubonic plague of the early 20th century and people have been confined to their homes in order to contain the virus to a considerable extent.
While the vaccine is being worked out, people are slowly learning to operate from home whether it is work or personal matters and youngsters have found a new opportunity to do things that they could not have under normal circumstances due to work pressure.
What do the youngsters enjoy the most? Naturally, anything laced with entertainment and frolic that gives them a reason to celebrate in a big way and what better than these two to do so.
When it comes to entertainment, movies and sports come to mind first as they form the core basis of entertainment not just in US but all across the globe for now we shall focus on films alone.
Movies have been tremendously popular right from their inception in the early 20th century when the silent era was dominated by the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, etc. and now we are relegated to action adventure fictional superheroes like Batman, Spiderman, The Avengers, Captain America and their ilk.
However, movies aren’t made for entertainment purpose alone as there are many examples of films that have a social message for the society highlighting the good and bad aspects of any situation or about tackling worldly problems in a moral way.
At the same time, Hollywood is unthinkable without gangster movies right from the immortal ‘The Godfather’, ‘Scarface’, ‘Goodfellas and many Al Pacino flicks that make him the undisputed king of this genre.
While the Covid-19 cases continue to be on the rise, theatres have been shutdown that has allowed OTT platforms to thrive in a big way due to which filmmakers have started releasing their ventures on them.
Easy as Pie
Some people are still skeptical on whether movies can be watched online or not as they feel that there is some system involved where they have to make a huge payment before getting to watch movies.
Rest assured that it is as easy as pie because you just need to download & convert Couchtuner videos online after which you can rent out on any movie that you want for a period of one month.
Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+Hotstar are slowly set on a booming phase as filmmakers across the world are selling them the rights to air their movies for a mammoth price that has set the cash registers ringing for OTT platforms.
Since it looks like corona virus is here to stay, theatres can’t be opened up until a vaccine is discovered soon but by then it would be too late and theatres can be rendered obsolete.
