Streaming Video News: September 1, 2016

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with some new additions to the streaming catalog, the most recognizable of which is Miss Lovely, which I thought was okay. Also new are the 2009 drama 99 and Placebo, a documentary about the intense pressure of medical school in India. Two British travel series — India’s Frontier Railways and India’s Lost Worlds — were also added. [Update: I just noticed on Instant Watcher that the lauded 2014 Pakistani drama Dukhtar was also added.]

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime as well. The two new additions include 2004’s Iqbal and 2005’s Aitraaz, starring Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Kumar, and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
