I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the new series Bhaag Beanie Bhaag, starring Swara Bhaskar as a woman chasing her dream of becoming a standup comic. The lauded animated film Bombay Rose was supposed to arrive on December 4, but a technical issue has delayed its release.
Some really good movies expire from Netflix on December 8, so watch them while you still can:
- Delhi Belly (2011) — ★★★★
- Dhobi Ghat (2011) — ★★★★
- Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na (2008)
- Lagaan (2001) — [no review, but I loved it]
- Papa the Great (2000)
- Peepli Live (2010) — ★★★
- Taare Zameen Par (2007) — ★½
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian titles added this week, including the premieres of the Telugu film Bombhaat and the sports docuseries Sons of the Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Just a reminder that Friday, December 11 has a couple of big new Hindi streaming releases: Sanjay Dutt’s Torbaaz on Netflix and Bhumi Pednekar’s Durgamati on Amazon Prime. Amazon often launches their Indian titles at midnight in India, which means Durgamati will likely be available the afternoon of Thursday, December 10 in the United States.

Hi Kathy, I think u made a genuine mistake in regards to Taare Zameen Par, 1st movie directed by Aamir Khan, cause there’s no way you would have given that movie a 1.5 star…even on a bad day that movie deserves over 3 stars; I don’t care what you say you can’t all yourself a movie reviewer if u give Taare Zameen Par 1.5 stars, A movie, most rated 4/4 stars and i had 10/10; Check your llist, I think u mixed it up with something else. I checked IMDB, i didn’t c your rating on Taare Zameen par, so if u haven’t seen it go see it ASAP…thanks
I didn’t make a mistake, Dev, I just didn’t like it. Making Aamir’s character the sole focus in the second half and sidelining the kid was a bad choice. And my job as a movie reviewer isn’t to have the same opinion as you, it’s to write about my own experience of watching the movie.
