I’m not a huge fan of Hindi movies (Ok I'm not a fan of them at all – I hate them). However judging by the number of E-Mail queries we get about Bollywood movie torrents, it’s a fact that Indian movies are very popular across the world. What most folks do not know is that there are many private torrent trackers dedicated specially for ‘Desi’ stuff. You can not only download movies but also TV shows, music and other media too from these sites – free of charge and at fairly good download speeds as well. This article summarizes info about 5 such private BitTorrent sites that specialize in Indian/Pakistani content.
These trackers index a wide range of releases of various quality including Pre-DVD, DVDRip and even HD content. Most of these are being uploaded by ‘Desi’ P2P groups and not to mention a handful of scene groups. Note that when in comes to movies, English subtitles are included in the release most of the time.

Note that this by no means is a complete list of Indian/Bollywood torrent trackers. There are many other sites that track similar stuff (ExDesi, DCTorrent, DesiTorrents, BwTorrents, etc) that were not open for signup by the time this article was posted. If you know any other similar sites (that are currently open), feel free to share them in the comments section.
