I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two new additions to the catalog. The 2017 Bengali film Aroni Takhon and the 2016 Pakistani movie Janaan are now available for streaming. Apparently, I missed the expiration of Hate Story 2, but fear not: Hate Story and Hate Story 3 are still available. Just a reminder that Bombay Velvet and Finding Fanny depart on September 20.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of new additions to the catalog. In addition to the documentaries The Love Commandos and Santa Shakti, the following fiction films are now available for streaming: Bollywood Hero, Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love, Partu (Marathi), Poriyaalan (Tamil), and Velaiilla Pattadhari (Tamil).
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix to include some recent additions, most of which are films from the 1970s and ’80s. Along with the Punjabi movie Chadi Jawani Budhe Nu and the Bengali film Lorai: Play to Live, the newly added Bollywood titles are: Aakhri Adaalat, Ek Jaan Hain Hum, Khoon Khoon, Manoranjan, Murjim, Sohni Mahiwal, and Teesri Aankh.
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.
