Streaming Video News: March 29, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the premiere of the Netflix Original Marathi movie 15 August. A bunch of Hindi movies expire from the service March 30, so tonight is your last chance to watch these titles:

Shah Rukh Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment has a streaming deal with Netflix that lasts through the end of this year, and I’ve wondered when Zero is going to wind up on Netflix. I checked on the other RCE titles produced since the deal was signed, and Dear Zindagi, Jab Harry Met Sejal, and Ittefaq all became available for streaming five months after their theatrical release. The only exception was Raees, which appeared on the service after four months. We can likely expect Zero to join Netflix at the end of May, maybe end of April. Badla is also an RCE production, so look for that in early July, possibly early June.

I’ve also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week. Newly added 2019 releases include:

Streaming Video News: April 25, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several additions to the catalog, including 2016’s thoughtful coming-of-age drama Dear Zindagi, starring Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan. Also new to streaming are a pair of Amitabh Bachchan films — 2003’s Baghban and 2008’s Bhoothnath, which didn’t really work — as well as the Netflix Original comedy special Vir Das: Abroad Understanding by the Delhi Belly actor.

Other recent additions to Netflix include Robot (the Hindi-dubbed version of Enthiran), Chandni Bar, the 2016 Bengali movie Colkatay Columbus, and a bunch of Hindi TV shows, including Agent Raghav: Crime BranchBhaage Re Mann, Bh Se Bhade, and Gangs of Haseepur.
