Streaming Video News: June 27, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three additions to the streaming catalog. Kahaani is back, which makes sense since director Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla is likely to join Netflix in early July. The Aamir Khan-hosted documentary Rubaru Roshini is also now available, as is director Aditya Kripalani’s Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal. Like Kripalani’s previous film — Tikli and Laxmi BombTottaa Pataaka Item Maal also deals with sexual violence against women, using it as the basis for a revenge drama. I found the new film too upsetting to finish, so be forewarned.

In addition to all of the Bollywood movies expiring from Netflix on July 1, five non-fiction TV series will depart the service on July 25: Buddha Sutra, The Great Escape, Ithihas Ki Thali Se, Kissa Currency Ka, and Samagri, Sampatti Aur Sauda.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a dozen Indian films added in the last two days, including the 2019 Telugu release Bottu.
