I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with four new titles. In addition to a pair of Hindi-dubbed films, two 2018 releases are now available to stream: the Kay Kay Menon murder mystery Vodka Diaries and the geriatric family comedy 102 Not Out, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. I enjoyed 102 Not Out for its depiction of the challenges of aging and how it influences family dynamics.
Amazon’s push to increase its foothold in India has essentially turned Prime Day into a week-long event, with at least three more 2018 releases added to Prime in the coming days (Vodka Diaries was a nice surprise). We’re likely to see Sanjay Mishra’s Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain join the catalog on Thursday, followed by Raazi on Friday, and the Telugu movie Officer on Saturday. If you’re not a Prime member yet, this is a good week to start a free trial.
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a new premier date. The Netflix original horror series Ghoul — starring Radhika Apte and Manav Kaul — debuts on August 24, 2018. The trailer looks super scary:
