Streaming Video News: August 21, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with some really exciting new additions to the catalog, including two Akshay Kumar social issue flicks: 2017’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and 2018’s Pad Man. I missed Pad Man in the theater, so I’m eager to finally check it out; Toilet was okay. Also new are the Tamil film Mersal and the revenge drama Mom, featuring Sridevi in her final starring role (she’s terrific in it, of course). I’m most excited about the addition of Bareilly Ki Barfi, one of my favorite movies of 2017. I can’t believe we had to wait a whole year for it to show up on a streaming service! Of the new additions that I’ve seen, I recommend watching Bareilly Ki Barfi first, followed by Mom, then Toilet, then Bareilly Ki Barfi again.
