Streaming Video News: August 18, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon’s Heera channel with five additions to the streaming catalog. 2008’s Hari Puttar: A Comedy of Terrors is the most recent release of the bunch, with also includes Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke (2001), Chauraha (1994), and Gardish (1993). I am most excited for 1998’s Hatyara, in which Mithun Chakraborty plays a character who avenges the rape and murder of his loved ones by villains played by Mukesh Rishi and Rami Reddy. If that sounds an awful lot like the plot of my beloved Gunda, get this — Hatyara released in theaters in 1998 just three months before Gunda!

I also made a couple of recent updates to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime. Admittedly, they aren’t “Bollywood” movies by the strict definition, but rather international productions about desis abroad that might appeal to Bollywood fans, including the American film Quarter Life Crisis (starring Maulik Pancholy and Lisa Ray) and the 2017 Italian movie Babylon Sisters, about an Indian family that opens a dance studio. The 2016 Malayalam film Girls is also now available for streaming.

Finally, my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix is updated to include several new Indian movies: Chocolate (Bengali), Rama Rama Re… (Kannada), Superstar (Gujarati), and the Malayalam films An Off-Day Game and Six Feet High.

Baahubali and Baahubali 2 Are Now on Netflix in Three Languages

Earlier today, I wrote that the Hindi-dubbed versions of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion were added to Netflix. Since then, the Malayalam-dubbed and Tamil versions of both movies have also been activated on the streaming service. I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix to include the new additions. Each version of each film has its own separate ID at Netflix. Here are the direct links:

Hindi Version of Baahubali 2 is Available on Netflix

Update: All versions of Baahubali and Baahubali 2 are now available.

The Hindi-dubbed versions of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion are now available on Netflix! If you read my Thoughts on Baahubali piece and my review of Baahubali 2, you know I’m super excited about this news. You’ll find both movies listed under the “Other Indian and Pakistani Movies on Netflix” section of my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix. But that’s not all…

The Tamil and Malayalam-dubbed versions of both movies are on their way to Netflix, too! Although those versions aren’t available yet, Instant Watcher found listings for Baahubali (Malayalam version), Baahubali (Tamil version), Baahubali 2 (Malayalam version), and Baahubali 2 (Tamil version). I will post again when those versions become available. There’s even a note under Netflix’s description of the Hindi version of the first film that reads: “(Tamil, Malayalam, English versions available via search.),” so might we even get English-dubbed versions of the Baahubali films? I’m skeptical. Besides, who needs English-dubbed versions when rekhs and her crew provided us with amazing English subtitles for every version of both movies!

As of right now, the Telugu version of Baahubali 2 doesn’t appear to be available in the US in any format, either on DVD, Blu-ray, or in downloadable form on iTunes (which does carry the first film in Telugu). I’m not sure why that is, but hopefully that will change in the near future.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The 2007 supernatural drama Bhool Bhulaiyaa is now available for streaming. This was one of the first movies I reviewed for the Naperville Sun, and I am still just as impressed with Vidya Balan’s performance in the song “Aami Je Tomar” as I was when the movie came out.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several additions to the catalog. Jab We Met made its triumphant return to the streaming service, joining the newly added 2017 film Anaarkali of Aarah, starring Swara Bhaskar. Also new is the 2016 American-Indian co-production Tie the Knot, which stars Omi Vaidya and Tara Reid. The Netflix original documentary series Daughters of Destiny — which follows a group of impoverish girls through their life at a boarding school — is available as well. The show looks inspiring, and it features music by A.R. Rahman.
