I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with some excellent new additions to the catalog. The splashiest new addition is the 2016 hit Neerja, which I adored. Another big deal is the Tamil movie Interrogation (“Visaaranai“), India’s submission to the 2017 Oscars. Also new are the highly regarded Marathi film Sairat, 2016 Hindi indie The Violin Player, 2014 Marathi film 1000 Rupee Note, and the behind-the-scenes documentary Beyond Bollywood.
Netflix also announced the streaming debut dates of three intriguing documentaries. December 6 marks the release of One in a Billion, a film about Satnam Singh Bhamara, the NBA’s first Indian-born draftee. 2013’s When Hari Got Married — a humorous look at an arranged marriage — joins the service on December 25. Then on December 31, I finally get the chance to see Big In Bollywood, the 2011 documentary about Omi Vaidya‘s rapid rise to fame following the release of 3 Idiots.
