BestWap Now BassWap – Sounds The Same But What’s New?
Swap “BestWap” with “BassWap” and you get to practice a new tongue twister!
Kidding aside, BestWap is now BassWap.in.
If you look at the bottom of the site’s homepage, you will see the word “BestWap” written on the middle.
Its “About” section begins with this sentence:
Basswap.in is free BestWap in India.
Now if anyone finds that sentence a bit confusing, one thing remains clear, though: this download site is still around.
As Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet (1597), “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Then BestWap by any other name would allow anyone to download movies and songs.
Yes, BestWap.life is now dead.
Bodis, a Florida-based domain parking platform, hosted www.bestwap.life, according to Website.informer.com.
BestWap created this domain on August 17, 2021.
EasyCounter said on its website that it started to track BestWap.life in May 2018.
When it was still up, its traffic came mostly from the following countries:
- India (75.4 percent)
- Pakistan (13.2 percent)
- Bangladesh (1.5 percent)
- Turkmenistan (1.2 percent)
- United Arab Emirates (0.9 percent)
If you go to BestWap.life, here is what you will see:
The good news is that you can successfully and safely download (based on the author’s experience) songs and films at BestWap.
There’s nothing new with BassWap because when it was still BestWap, it also offered downloadable movies and songs.
Perhaps its collections and/or repertoire either got bigger or fewer. In addition, there could now be new features.
It would now be hard to make comparisons, apparently.
The homepage of BestWap has seven categories (in the following order):
- Free Movies
- Bollywood MP3 Songs
- Pop MP3 Songs
- Telugu MP3 Songs
- Punjabi MP3 Songs
- Pagalnew (list of latest released songs)
Except for “Free Movies” and “Pagalnew,” if you click/tap any of the categories, you will be directed to www.pagaldance.com.
Clicking/Tapping “Pagalnew” will direct you to www.pagalnew.com.
BestWap allows people to download songs in MP3 format.
There are two speed options: 128 kbps (kilobits per second) and 320 kbps.
The Bollywood songs are from 2003 and 2008–2022.
One commendable feature of BestWap is that, aside from the song’s album/music/promo poster, it includes important information about it:
- the album where the song is found
- main singer
- featured artist(s), if there are any
Aside from Hindi, BestWap includes songs in the following languages:
- Bengali (songs released in 2021 and 2022)
- Odia (2020–2022)
- Punjabi (1999; 2009; 2011–2022)
- Telugu (2020–2022)
The song categories are:
- Bollywood (songs released in 2003; 2008–2022)
- Pop (1995; 1998–2003; 2008–2009; 2013–2022)
- Remix (2003–2006; 2015–2019)
Under “Special Songs,” the subcategories are:
- Deshbhakti (Indian Independence and Republic Day)
- Friendship Day
- Hanuman Jayanti (Hindu festival; the birth of Hanuman, a Hindu god)
- Krishna Janmashtami (Hindu festival; the birth of Krishna, another Hindu god)
- Shiv Bhajans (thanksgiving and praise songs to Shiva, an Indian deity)
- Valentine’s Day
Go to “Free Movies” to download Bollywood films (the only ones available) at BestWap.
Clicking/Tapping that category will redirect you to www.pagalfilmy.xyz.
Under its film category, BestWap has (as of this writing):
- Bollywood movies (15)
- Hindi-dubbed movies (2)
- Hindi web series (2)
When downloading a movie, you will see as page that contains the following information:
- names of the main actors
- names of the main actresses
- date uploaded at BestWap
- a brief movie description
You must have noticed that the last three sites mentioned all start with the word “pagal.”
It has several meanings or synonymous words in the English language.
Well, based on where it’s used, in the opinion of the author, “pagal” is used to mean “crazy” or “craziness” – in a positive light, that is.
Crazy over Indian songs?
Then visit BestWap!
“Pagal” may refer to the 1939 Nepali poem by novelist, poet, and playwright Laxmi Prasad Devkota (1909–1959).
Of course, we’re talking about a word here, not a literary piece.
The Punjabi language is the spoken language of people in India and Pakistan.
In Punjabi, the word “pagal” is an adjective.
Douglas McConnell, Ph.D., an Oxford research fellow, described “pagal” as a “stigmatizing Punjabi word.”
McConnell explained in his 2020 article for the blog “Practical Ethics” by the University of Oxford why “pagal” is condemnatory.
It’s used to refer to people with dementia – those having difficulty analyzing, thinking, and remembering.
BestWap created an eponymous YouTube channel on March 18, 2013.
As of this writing, it has around 98,000 subscribers, 35.7 million views, and 115 uploaded videos (majority are music videos).
The video that comes with this article is from the BestWap channel.
It last uploaded a video – a 58-minute-24-second audio compilation of ‘90s Bollywood love songs – on March 1, 2021.
The first video was uploaded on May 20, 2013.
On April 3, 2020, it uploaded a 20-second video, with the caption, “BestWap is now Bestwap.cyou.”
If you go to www.bestwap.cyou, there’s nothing there. It’s a blank white page but with word “Pagalfilm” on the upper left corner.
Now about the video clip, it says that one “can download A to Z Bollywood MP3 songs” as well as “Punjabi” and “pop” songs at bestwap2.in.
When the author checked out that address, the personal computer displayed this message on the screen:
Go to Google Play Store to download the BestWap app.
According to Google Play, the app has been downloaded approximately 1,000 times already and was last updated on December 19, 2021.
At 9Apps, where Android users can also download it, the former name of the BestWap app was BassWap.in.
From this site, you can download the 1.2 version (size: 5.1 MB; updated December 24, 2018).
BestWap 1.0 (4.8 MB) came out on December 11, 2018.
Apparently, based on the date of the update, Google Play offers the latest version of the BestWap app.
According to GOV.UK, All4You22 was a private limited company incorporated on April 16, 2018.
A certain Christos Kelapostolou, a Greek, served as its director.
The company’s registered office address was 85 Great Portland Street, London, United Kingdom, W1W 7LT.
If the BestWap app can still be downloaded from Google Play, then most likely it has a new developer.
You may check out these sites:
- Open Culture
- Public Domain Torrents
- The Internet Archive (vintage documentaries)
- Watch TCM (Hollywood film classics)
The answer depends on one’s user experience. Guru99 suggests the following:
You can try downloading your favorite songs from these sites:
- Free Music Archive
- Museopen (the free ones are mostly classical music)
- TrendyBeatz (more on artists from South Africa, particularly from Nigeria)
- YouTube Audio Library
Try these apps (Ok for both Android and iOS users), as recommended by Guru99:
- By Click Downloader
- Sidify Music Converter
The “best” in “BestWap” clearly refers to its claim of providing the opportunity to download songs and films for free.
Yes, the compilation is entirely from India, BUT at least it lives up to its promise.
It can be considered an oasis of sorts by Indian film and music lovers.
BestWap – now BassWap – is something they can all be crazy about.
