Streaming Video News: January 16, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of Rajkummar Rao’s 2019 comedy Made in China and director Rima Das’s Assamese film Bulbul Can Singh. The Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Athiya Shetty romantic-comedy Motichoor Chaknachoor arrives on the service on January 20.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian films added in the last week, including the John Abraham-led ensemble comedy Pagalpanti. Two Yash Raj Films titles — Qaidi Band and Titli (which is good but gross) — are finally available for streaming as well. Other recently added 2019 releases include:

Two new shows debut on Prime on Friday, January 17 — the Russell Peters comedy series Deported and the thriller series Afsos, starring Gulshan Devaiah. It looks pretty good. [Update: The release of Afsos was postponed “due to unforeseen circumstances“.]

    I watched “Made in China.” Strange movie. Paresh Rawal does a great job. Half is how to succeed in business. The other half was about helping men who have problems with their s*x life. Still not sure if I liked the movie or not. It’s pretty blunt in speech so people may not be into watching the movie. Khandaani Shafakhana had a similar theme of helping people with their problems. It’s gentler being not as graphic as “Made in China.”

      “Still not sure if I liked the movie or not.” — I don’t know if this comment makes me more or less interested to see the film, Jill. 😉 It’s trailer didn’t grab me, and your description makes me suspect there are reasons for that.
