We’re entering a busy stretch at Netflix, starting with the Valentine’s Day (Sunday) additions of the 2020 Indo-Nigerian romance Namaste Wahala and the debut of the Indian wedding reality series The Big Day. Those are followed on the 15th by Awara Paagal Deewana, Eeb Allay Ooo! on the 17th, and the premiere of the Netflix Original Telugu anthology Pitta Kathalu on February 19.

Here are all the other upcoming Netflix release dates that we know of:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two new additions today: the animated series Mighty Little Bheem: Kite Festival and the 2018 Hindi film Is Love Enough? Sir. The indie drama made the festival rounds under the title Sir (which is how it’s listed at IMDb and Wikipedia) but added the alternative title Is Love Enough? above the main title on promotional posters (like the one to the right) at some point after that. Netflix uses the updated, full title for alphabetization purposes.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a number of recently added Indian titles, including yesterday’s world premiere of R. Madhavan’s Tamil film Maara.

Amazon revealed that the second season of The Family Man will debut on February 12.

Happy New Year! After a holiday break, I’ve finished updating my lists of Bollywood movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime. The 1999 action romance Hello Brother was added to Netflix the other day. Prime continues to add Indian titles on a daily basis, but what’s notable is what’s been removed recently. More than 60 Pakistani TV series and 17 movies disappeared, leaving just 23 Urdu films on Amazon Prime.

Here’s a look at new Indian titles debuting on streaming video this month:

January 8Maara (Tamil) on Amazon Prime

January 14Bhoomi (Tamil) on Hotstar

January 15Tandav (Hindi series) on Amazon Prime

January 15Tribhanga: Tedhi Medhi Crazy (Hindi) on Netflix

January 22The White Tiger (English) on Netflix

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week, including today’s premiere of Coolie No. 1 (also in 4K UHD), the Varun Dhawan remake of the classic Govinda comedy.

I also updated my list if Bollywood movies on Netflix with the debut of the Netflix Original dark comedy AK vs AK, starring birthday boy Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap as sinister versions of themselves.

The other gigantic Netflix news is that 48 Hindi movies are scheduled to expire on December 31. Most of them are Shemaroo Entertainment titles that were added to Netflix on December 31, 2019, and almost all are also currently available on Amazon Prime. Since there are no expiration dates listed for the versions on Prime, I’m guessing that Amazon is their permanent home for the time being. I don’t expect the movies expiring from Netflix to return anytime soon. Nevertheless, I’m gonna wait until January 2 to purge my Netflix list, because it would be super annoying to remove them all and have to re-add them two days later if the contract renews. Here’s the full list of Hindi movies expiring from Netflix on December 31:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the new series Bhaag Beanie Bhaag, starring Swara Bhaskar as a woman chasing her dream of becoming a standup comic. The lauded animated film Bombay Rose was supposed to arrive on December 4, but a technical issue has delayed its release.

Some really good movies expire from Netflix on December 8, so watch them while you still can:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian titles added this week, including the premieres of the Telugu film Bombhaat and the sports docuseries Sons of the Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Just a reminder that Friday, December 11 has a couple of big new Hindi streaming releases: Sanjay Dutt’s Torbaaz on Netflix and Bhumi Pednekar’s Durgamati on Amazon Prime. Amazon often launches their Indian titles at midnight in India, which means Durgamati will likely be available the afternoon of Thursday, December 10 in the United States.

Bollywood fans have two brand new movies to choose from today — both starring Rajkummar Rao. On Netflix, Rao features in the dark comedy Ludo as part of an ensemble that includes Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Pankaj Tripathi. On Amazon Prime, Rao and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub play rival gym teachers in director Hansal Mehta’s comedy Chhalaang (also available in 4K UHD).

Today’s new releases cap off a busy holiday week on streaming that started with Laxmii‘s Hotstar premiere on Monday. Yesterday, Soorarai Pottru debuted on Prime in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Telugu (under the title Aakaasam Nee Haddhu Ra).

Lots of other Indian titles have been added to Amazon Prime in the last few days, so head over to my Prime list to see what’s new. And don’t forget to check my Netflix list to see what’s new and what titles are expiring soon. Have a wonderful Diwali!

A week of new releases to celebrate Diwali kicked off with today’s premiere of the Akshay Kumar horror comedy Laxmii on Hotstar. Thursday, November 12 sees the debut of the ensemble dark comedy Ludo on Netflix and the Tamil film Soorari Pottru on Amazon Prime. Finally, the social comedy Chhalaang premieres on Amazon Prime on Friday, November 13.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the new release Gatham, which is available in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu. There’s been a ton of upheaval on Prime in the last week, with hundreds of titles disappearing — some for several days — only for most of them to reappear on the service. The listings at my page are now up-to-date, but it did mean hours of ultimately pointless work for me. 😦 I wish Amazon handled its contract renewals and expirations as seamlessly as Netflix does.

Speaking of which, 21 Indian shows and movies are set to expire from Netflix on November 15. The full list is available on my Netflix page under the “Expiring Soon” section near the top of the page. Of the expiring films, these are the ones that I’ve reviewed:
