I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a big new addition to the catalog. 2017’s Mubarakan is now available for streaming. I missed this Arjun Kapoor-Anil Kapoor comedy in the theater, but it made over $700,000 in North America, and I’m interested to see why it was so popular. Netflix has added over thirty new Hindi titles in the last month, presumably to bulk up its catalog to compete with the hundreds of Bollywood movies available for streaming on Amazon’s Heera channel. Many of the newly added movies are just filler material — junk like Karzzzz — but the addition of Mubarakan and other 2017 releases like Baadshaho and Lucknow Central show that Netflix is trying to make this a fight.
