In a nut shell Einthusan is a south Asian hub that serves as a platform for full length movies like Hindi, Tamil, Malayala, Teluga and more. Einthusan in short is a free online movie service that offer pirated movies.
The cost to stream these movies are free to the visitor because Einthusan for all intent and purposes obtained the movies illegally. Typically legit services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime have to shell out a lot of money to distributors/copyright holders for the right to showcase their movies.
Because Einthusan have pirated movies, they’ve in essence went around the distributor, and went directly to the consumer. The legitimacy of Einthusan being a good platform to stream hindi movies in our opinion isn’t a very good. They are really on shaky ground, and it’s inevitable that they’ll get shut down permanently (sooner or later).
Will you go to jail for downloading content on Einthusan?
Law Enforcement aren’t investing a lot of time looking for people who are watching free movies (but things can change rapidly), they are much more interested in the people who have created the illegal platform for people to download movies.
You need to know that it’s illegal in the United States to offer a downloadable stream of copyrighted audio or audiovisual content without a license from the copyright owner. With that being said, the individual providing the link is more at risk for potential incarceration than the one doing the downloading.
Even though the cops may not be beating down your door for downloading illegal Bollywood movies, I would be concerned about visiting a site that is offering pirated movies. Potential lawsuits for downloading illegal Indian movies are much more likely than getting arrested. You may get sued by the movie distributor, but there won’t be any cops coming to visit (except maybe the sheriff serving you a notice of a lawsuit).
Beware of Malware
Visiting illegally streaming platforms like Einthusan will bombard you with ads with many of them embedded with hidden software that will potential harm your computer, phone or laptop. Malware isn’t something you want on your computer ever. Hackers use it to monitor your online purchase activity, and may use what they’ve gathered from you (credit card info), and then sell it on the black market.
Our conclusion it to stay away from Einthusan as it will do more harm than good. There are plenty of legitimate Telugu Hindi movie sites that aren’t providing illegal movies. Let’s put it this way, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
