Streaming Video News: September 19, 2013

The 2008 thriller Kidnap is now available for streaming on Netflix. While by no means a great movie, Kidnap stars Sanjay Dutt in perhaps my favorite role I’ve ever seen him play. Dutt plays the father of a kidnapped young woman — a la Liam Neeson in Taken — a role befitting a man of his age (Dutt was 49 when the film released). He still gets to kick plenty of butts but without having to simultaneously romance a woman in her early twenties. I wish there were more cool dad roles for Bollywood actors. One can’t play a college student forever (right?).

Mark your calendars for Friday, October 4, when Lootera makes its streaming debut on Eros Now. Lootera is currently my favorite movie of 2013, so I’d say it’s worth the $1.99 rental.

    Late 40’s to late 50’s – then they play Dad’s or school principals or deans or even uncles –

    Rishi Kapoor – Student of the Year – Dean
    Anupam Kher – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – Principal
    Rishi Kapoor – Jab Tak Hai Jaan – uncle
    Rishi Kapoor – Patiala House – Father
    Anupam Kher – Jab Tak Hai Jaan – Father –

    I remember Sanjay Dutt as the older man romancing the younger girl in Parineeta with Vidya Balan.

    Thanks for the update re Lootera. I am looking forward to this film.. And have been since your review.
