No you will not get the packages or supporting files. dpkg -i <package>
is only to install individual *.deb files that you have already
downloaded.  Now if you were to use apt-get install <package> it will
get the package and all dependancies.  And it will store these *.deb
files in /var/cache/apt/archives/
