Movies have always been hit with the Indian audience and mindset. We love dramas and emotions, juicy spicy stories filled with good-looking heroes and heroines, the action, the thriller – everything from A to Z. Our Bollywood has never failed to appease to our senses and every year the entertainment industry earns crores of money from the numerous releases. Had it been in the past, movie ticket booking was not an easy affair and hats off to all the people who have stood in the swarming crowd, in the heat and sweat for years to buy movie tickets and watch their beloved movie stars battle it out in different films and shows.
Today, thankfully and a lot of credit for this goes to the digital medium, the process of movie ticket booking has been made easy, simple and quite straightforward. You can be sitting in the comforts of your home, you can be on the go or you can be out for a doctor’s appointment – from anywhere and everywhere, tickets for ongoing and forthcoming movies can be booked easily.

These are all safe methods of payment, at least when compared to the fiat currencies in hand. Of these the credit card and the electronic wallet are mostly advised for online transactions as they have no link up directly with your bank account. However, if you ensure that you conduct your online transactions in private and take necessary precautions; all online methods of payments are safe and secure.
There was a time when many people would wait for years to catch a movie on the television rather than go to movie halls and booking counters to buy movie tickets. Those were the days when movie ticket booking was all done manually. There was never a guarantee that you would get to watch the particular show for tickets could get sold-out much before your turn and in order to catch the next show you would need to line up again after 3 hours. This meant that you needed to loiter around near the hall for that length of time, having nothing much to do and quite frankly wasting all your time and energy.
Today, movie ticket booking can be done from online entertainment reseller sites and Apps. Some of the common aggregators who sell movie tickets online are Paytm, MobiKwik and PhonePe. There is no virtual queue here. You simply click on the movie that you want to see, click on the show of your liking, choose your preferred theatre and best of all; you choose the seats that you want. This additional freedom of choicest seats is because of the online medium. Finally you pay to confirm and receive your e-tickets on your handset.
Remember to be sure of the movie timing, show and theatre that you choose for once you have paid; the tickets cannot be changed or refunded back.
