Streaming Video News: August 6, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with 30 new Indian titles added in the last week, including the new Amazon Original Hindi series Bandish Bandits (also in 4K UHD). The music-themed show features a soundtrack by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who were among the participants in a concert of songs from the series that streamed live on YouTube. Watch it here:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with an August 21 premiere date for the Netflix Original Hindi film Class of ’83, starring Bobby Deol. The trailer launches later tonight.

Kasey Moore of What’s on Netflix analyzed all of Netflix’s content across all languages and found that 10% of the movies and series on Netflix are in Hindi (552 titles total). That’s the second highest percentage after English (55%, or 3,186 titles). And in case you missed it, head to What’s on Netflix to check out my roundup of all the new Indian content added to Netflix in July.
