Streaming Video News: August 2, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several additions to the catalog. Jab We Met made its triumphant return to the streaming service, joining the newly added 2017 film Anaarkali of Aarah, starring Swara Bhaskar. Also new is the 2016 American-Indian co-production Tie the Knot, which stars Omi Vaidya and Tara Reid. The Netflix original documentary series Daughters of Destiny — which follows a group of impoverish girls through their life at a boarding school — is available as well. The show looks inspiring, and it features music by A.R. Rahman.

    Daughters of Destiny is a really interesting series. Children (girls and boys) from Dalit communities given wonderful educational opportunities at Shanti Bhavan but life isn’t necessarily easy for them once they get to college – decisions they have to make, family conflicts etc… It would be good to have a documentary follow some of the boys at the school to see if things are easier (or not) for them.

    I watched “Daughters of Destiny” and I highly recommend it. It’s inspirational and it’s great to see efforts are being made to bring those in the Dalit caste up and above poverty.

      I felt the same after I watched it. It had the feel of a made-for-tv movie like those shown at midday on our free-to-air channels.

    I have a real problem with how Indian writers write roles for Western women – almost invariably blonde and vapid. The only exception that I can recall is Elizabeth in “Laagan.” And the writer for “Tie the Knot” loses Beatrice after about 45 minutes into the film and only lets her back in during the last 15 minutes. No meaningful dialogue, no meaningful behavior.

      Yeah, Indian movies don’t have a great track record for positive depictions of white ladies, NCKat53. I sometimes feel like a broken record for pointing that out all time. 😉
