If you are looking for a massive collection of free Indian movies to stream, well, you have come to the right place. Tamil Gun is easily one of the most reliable and regularly updated archives of free movies in India. Whether you are looking to stream free movies in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, or Telugu, Tamil Gun has you covered.
In addition to offering hundreds of free movies in HD quality, Tamil Gun also lets users stream TV shows for free, listen to Indian radio, and stream hard to find overdubbed films. Could Tamil Gun be the free movie streaming site that you have been looking for? Well, let’s take a closer look and find out, shall we?
Although free movie streaming sites are not exactly known for providing really intuitive, dynamic, or innovative website design, I still tend to expect a little bit more from sites like this. Call me an optimist, or naïve, or whatever you will … but I believe that a free movie streaming site can also be a high-quality movie streaming site.
It is not as if this belief arose in a vacuum or anything either. The reason that I hold out hope for each free movie streaming site that I visit to be on par with, say, Netflix or Hulu design wise is because, well, I have had the pleasure of using such sites in the past. I am not so foolish that I would hold every free movie streaming site that I come upon to the design standards of the biggest and most popular premium streaming services without having precedent to do so.
The fact is that there are free movie streaming sites out there that have really impressed me. I am thinking of sites (and apps) like Sling, Viki, and a select few others. So, then, when I see a site like Tamil Gun, I am slightly disappointed. I know that it is possible to provide an immersive, dynamic, and intuitive user experience while also not charging users to stream movies. Therefore, it just strikes me as lazy when a site like Tamil Gun presents itself so plainly.
Actually, “plain” is something of an understatement. Perhaps “unprofessional” would be a better description of this free movie streaming site. It is inconsistent and, in places, appears to even be unfinished. This site was clearly thrown together, seemingly at the last possible second by somebody who just barely knows how to code. The lack of attention to detail here is troubling. I mean, just look at the section labeled HD Movies. Not only does the text and graphic look like bad clip art, but the design grid was left in the background; this couldn’t have been an intentional aesthetic decision, right? No, this is just lazy design.
There is also little to no logical organization to this site. Let me bring you through the home page alone, from top to bottom. Below the site menu bar (which we will get to in a moment), you’ll find a selection of 8 titles, the Latest Videos section. Below this is the aforementioned HD Videos category. Then, for reasons that are unbeknownst to me, you have another segregated section dedicated to, well, More HD Videos (there has to have been a more elegant way to streamline these into one larger category, no?).
Keep scrolling down to find a completely different format for Kids Movies, with a random smattering of TV channel icons separating those and what appear to be another random selection of movies – this time with no header letting us know what is going on. The site builder seems to have completely given up by the time you get to the bottom of the page.
Scroll back up to the top of the page in order to find the site menu bar. This offers a little more help when it comes to navigating the site and finding the movie you want. Here, you can jump to various key areas of the site, including Home, HD Movies, Kids Movies, Dubbed Movies, Big Boss Tamil 4 (which deserves its own section on the site menu bar for some reason…), a dropdown menu for TV Series with only one option to choose from: Tamil Web Series, TV Shows, and Hindi (which also has a dropdown menu; this time linking to 2 other languages, as well as the Contact page).
This has to be one of the most randomly chaotic free movie streaming sites that I have ever seen. From a design standpoint, Tamil Gun needs a lot of work (a whole overhaul of the site entirely; I would say detonate this and start from scratch).
Content and Features
The content of Tamil Gun, however, is a bit of a saving grace. Even though the site doesn’t look good (nor is it easy to navigate), at least it offers a lot of free movies of all types and in several languages. Users of Tamil Gun, naturally, will find free Tamil movies (that’s kind of a given, right?). Additionally, though, Tamil Gun has plenty of Hindi, Punjabi, Malayalam, and Telugu films. Plus, the site is a great source of overdubbed movies, making Tamil Gun a great free movie streaming site for international releases as well.
As is the case with many free movie streaming sites, though, Tamil Gun’s scope expands beyond merely free movies. You will also find a solid selection of free TV series here. Although the site frequently claims that its movies and TV shows are in HD quality, unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sure, some titles are available to stream free in HD, but many are not. In fact, there are several movies that I attempted to play that were of a very low quality, even when 720p HD quality had been selected.
One fun quirk that is unique to Tamil Gun is its inclusion of a built-in radio station, Sooriyan FM. As a music lover, I think that this is really cool. It creates an ambiance as you search for the free movie that you wish to watch.
Once you do find your movie of choice, another nice feature is the fact that there are often several embedded streams provided. This way, if one host server is slow or not working for whatever reason, with certain titles (where available) you have backup options. This is definitely a welcomed feature because it is endlessly frustrating when you are watching a free movie stream and suddenly there is a network error, and the movie won’t buffer or load back up. In this case, Tamil Gun has provided (when possible) some backup options.
Mobile and Desktop Experience
There is no mobile app for Tamil Gun. Those of you who have experience with free movie streaming sites like this one probably won’t find this as too much of a surprise. It is extremely rare for a free movie streaming site to offer a mobile app.
That being said, I am happy to report that Tamil Gun’s mobile site is optimized for mobile devices. So, if you don’t mind having to stream free movies from your phone or tablet’s web browser, then Tamil Gun is actually one of the more mobile friendly free movie streaming sites out there.
One more strength that warrants mention is the fact that Tamil Gun has a relatively low number of ads. I don’t think it is possible to find a free movie streaming site with no ads (you have to pay for the servers and web hosting somehow, right?), but there are certainly some that are much better than others. And compared to some of the free movie streaming sites that I have seen that just bombard you with invasive ads, Tamil Gun is pretty ad light. With a decent ad blocker, you can stream free movies for hours without ever being interrupted by an ad on this site.
Suggestions that I have for Tamil Gun
The biggest issue that I take with Tamil Gun is how poorly designed it is. It is a shame, too, because this site really has the potential to be one of the best free streaming sites in India (perhaps even the world). The one missing piece is an intuitive, professional, and dynamic site. I would like to see the site undergo a cosmetic makeover, sure, but, more importantly, I want the site to offer a more user-friendly way to browse. Some filters and a search engine couldn’t hurt.
