Streaming Video News: January 15, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several new additions to the catalog. The 2017 Kannada film Urvi is now available for streaming, as are the 1980s Hindi movies Alibaba Aur 40 Chor and Pyar Ke Do Pal. The most intriguing new addition is the Jennifer Winget-Kunal Kohli romance Phir Se, which was completed back in 2015. Kohli — who produced and directed Phir Se, his acting debut — was sued for copyright infringement by Daawat-e-Ishq writer Jyoti Kapoor, stalling the film’s initial release. After paying a settlement, Kohli finally elected to skip theaters and release the movie straight to Netflix for its worldwide debut. In case you need a refresher on Phir Se, here’s the trailer:

I also made some updates to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime, adding a bunch of newly discovered Bengali movies that start with the letter “C.” Now onto letter “D”! For everything else new on Netflix and Amazon Prime — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

    Thank you for the trailer for Phir Se! I’ve started watching it and am enjoying it so far. One topic it explores is life and dating after divorce, which is seldom mentioned in Indian films.

    I added a bunch to my Netflix list, based on reviews from your site. Already watched one and now I have lots of questions for you. šŸ™‚

    Another thing i really liked is the positive characterization of the gay parents. It was a welcome change in an Indian film.
