I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a number of new additions to the streaming catalog. The most high-profile titles are the 2017 theatrical releases Jab Harry Met Sejal and Half Girlfriend (although the story in JHMS lets Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan down, and Half Girlfriend is regressively sexist). Two other notable new Bollywood flicks are the absurd Ajay Devgn thriller Tezz and the disastrous horror movie Hisss, the making of which was such an ordeal that they made a documentary about it. Also new are the Hindi movies Bhouri and Prague and the Punjabi films Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe and Sardaar Ji. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.
I’m compelled to point out that the superb Korean TV series Boys Over Flowers — a common entry point into the addicting world of K-dramas — expires from Netflix on December 23. It’s absolutely worth the investment of time, but fair warning: the soundtrack will be stuck in your head forever.
