I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a pair of returnees to start the month. Hum Aapka Hain Koun..! and Hum Saath-Saath Hain are available for streaming once more, although for some reason Netflix is calling Hum Saath-Saath HainTogether for Eternity” now. The 2019 Tamil film Thambi arrives on the service on February 3.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of new additions in the last week, including the 2019 remake Pati Patni Aur Woh, which looks gross. The 1978 original is also available on Prime, and maybe it’s better. Or you could just watch the newly added thriller Shanghai, which is awesome.

Other recently added 2019 releases include:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week, including today’s blockbuster addition of the Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff action extravaganza War, one of my favorite movies of the year.

Other 2019 releases added in the last week include:

It looks like the Excel Entertainment back catalog really is leaving Prime for good on Thursday, November 28. To see a list of all the titles on their way out, scroll past the “Newly Added” section at the top of my Amazon Prime page to find the “Expiring Soon” section, or click here.

The expiring titles will be replaced on December 1 by seven Punjabi titles, which you can find listed in the “Coming Soon” section near the top of my Netflix page.

Happy Thanksgiving! — Kathy

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian and Pakistani films added in the last week or so. The September theatrical release Pailwaan is available in its original Kannada, along with Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu versions. (Disclosure: my Amazon links include an affiliate tag that may earn me a commission on purchases made via the links.) The Malayalam movie Ittymaani: Made in China is also now available, in both standard and 4K, as is the 4K Kannada version of Saaho. Other recently added 2019 releases include:

Streaming Video News: September 27, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with four 2019 titles added in the last week, including the new Netflix original series Bard of Blood, starring Emraan Hashmi. Also new are the Hindi film Malaal, the Telugu sequel Manmadhudu 2, and the Malayalam and Tamil versions of Oh! Baby (the Telugu version was added last week).

Sixteen Indian movies are set to expire from Netflix on October 1 — mostly Malayalam titles, but the service’s lone Manipuri film, Loktak Lairembee, is on its way out as well. The full list of expiring titles is available here.

Streaming Video News: July 12, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian movies added in the last week. Amazon India is wrapping up its Prime Day promotions, with last of its big 2019 releases — the Marathi film Mogra Phulaalaa — due to join the streaming service on July 14. I’m surprised that Student of the Year 2 wasn’t ultimately part of the promotions, but it’ll make its way to Prime eventually. Besides the previously announced 2019 releases, several more were added to Prime in the last week:

Other recent notable additions include the classic comedy 3 Idiots, the lovely Bengali-English-Japanese film The Japanese Wife, and the hilarious documentary Meet the Patels, which became available on Prime the same day it expired from Netflix.

Streaming Video News: July 3, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two 2019 Malayalam releases just added today: Ishq and Kumbalangi Nights. The 2019 Telugu film Maharshi was added yesterday.

These additions are part of Amazon’s big marketing push in India, leading up to Prime Day on July 15-16. Here’s what else to expect in the coming days (get your 30-day free trial now if you don’t yet have Prime):

  • July 5: NGK (Tamil)
  • July 6: D/O Parvathamma (Kannada)
  • July 7: Muklawa (Punjabi)
  • July 8: Bhoot Chaturdash (Bengali)
  • July 9: Student of the Year (Hindi)*
  • July 10: Chandigarh Amritsar Chandigarh (Punjabi)
  • July 11: ?
  • July 12: Comicstaan, Season 2
  • July 13: A Star Is Born (probably India only)
  • July 14: Mogra Phulaalaa (Marathi)

Due to the time difference between India and the United States, these films will likely become available in the US the day before their official release date. The asterisk by Student of the Year 2 is because Amazon hasn’t officially announced it yet — although the cast just appeared in a new Prime promo video. My information comes from Bollywood Buff, a great site that keeps track of streaming video licensing deals in India, including likely streaming release dates for Hindi movies. Some of these dates may not apply outside of India, but it’s still fun to see what’s might be on the horizon.

Bollywood Buff expects The Tashkent Files to join on Netflix on July 12, with Badla also becoming available sometime this month (I predict July 8).

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a July 9 expiration date for the international production Lion. I also added a link to the Netflix original Hindi horror series Typewriter, which premieres July 19. The trailer is creepy:
