As you probably already know, Indians are quite good with their movies. Other than Hollywood movies, Indian movies are perhaps, the next widely sort after movies for downloads. Most of the movie downloading sites on the internet, for the most part, provide strictly Hollywood and Bollywood movies.
While their movies are often interesting to watch and quite lengthy too, there is a set back. If you do not understand Hindi, you will definitely have a problem understanding what their movies is about. If you solely just watch motions without having to understand Bollywood movies, great! However, if you aim to understand the movie, the need to get English subtitles for those Bollywood movies is a necessity.

Perhaps, in subsequent posts, we will be looking at some of those sites. However, for quite popular movie downloading sites like FzMovies, there is no provision for English subtitle by default.

Best Method To Get English Subtitles For Indian Bollywood Movies
While there are sites to download these subtitles from and then load into your favorite media player, there is a simpler route. Based on research carried out, this can be done using two android apps. Although there are more, these are the only ones I have tried and can vouch for.
Hence, the easiest way to get English subtitles for Indian movies on your device, is via the use of media players like VLC And MX player.
In this post, I will be giving you a step by step guide on how to accomplish this on both apps. I will also be giving you a hint on the best to use.
Download English Subtitles For Hindi Movies Using VLC Media Player
VLC player as you probably already know, is one of the best media player apps in the market today. The app is not only available on Android, but also available on windows. It’s also available on iOS thus making it a cross platform app.

Step 1: Download VLC from the app store.
Step 2: Launch the app and have it synchronize all the videos on your device. Depending on the number of videos on your device, this might take a while.
Step 3: Open the Bollywood Movie you watch to watch
Step 4. On the screen, tap on the subtitle icon as indicated in the image below.
Step 5: Next, tap on Download subtitles.
Step 6:. Wait a few minutes till an indication stating subtitle download completed is displayed. Give it a few seconds and the subtitle should begin showing.
Download English Subtitles For Bollywood Movies Using MX Player
Based on research, MX Player is the major alternative to VLC player. Although there is a pro version, you should be comfortable with the free version. The only noticeable issue with the free version however, is ads.
Here is a step by step guide on the easiest way to get English subtitles for Indian movies using MX Player.
Step 1: Launch the MX player app and open the Bollywood movie you want to get subtitles for.
Step 2: Immediately the movie begins to play, tap on the options icon as indicated in the image below.
This should be done immediately the movie begins to play.
Step 3: When the options are displayed, tap on Subtitle. Next, select Online subtitles and choose search.
An option indicating to Get subtitle online will be displayed.
Step 4: Select OK. Searching for subtitles indication will be displayed. After a while, found subtitles will be found.
Tick the box next to the one you want to download and choose the download option. After a while, you should get the successful notification and English subtitles should be displayed as soon as the movie begins to speak in Hindi.
That’s it. You have successfully downloaded English subtitles for bollywood movies without having to navigate through external websites.
Is Internet Connected Required For This To Work?
Obviously, yes! Internet connection is required to download the subtitle online using both apps. However, you do not need internet connection to keep watching the movie after the subtitle has been downloaded. When the movie begins to display the subtitle and properly synchronize with the hindi language being spoken in the movie, you can deactivate your internet connection if you want.
Which Of These Apps Do I Recommend?
For the most part, I would recommend using MX player for this. Reason being that, VLC Media player pretty much just downloads a subtitle it deems appropriate and begins to display that. MX Player on the other hand, provides you with options. You can thereafter, choose whichever you want and download.
In cases where one doesn’t properly synchronize with the movie, you can always choose another till you arrive at the best.
