Tag Archives: Bollywood Movies on Hulu

Streaming Video News: November 16, 2016

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with big news: there are no more Indian films on Hulu. None. Hulu’s limited selection of Indian content was all part of the Criterion Collection. When Hulu’s contract with Criterion expired, Indian content went extinct on Hulu. The site’s subpage for Indian movies is now totally blank. If that changes, I’ll update my Hulu page accordingly.

The good news is that Criterion’s collection of movies by director Satyajit Ray are available on the new streaming service FilmStruck. In addition to loads of other fabulous movies, FilmStruck features a handful of “Classic Bollywood” films. (Six of the nine movies in that category are in black-and-white, just to give you a sense of how “classic” we’re talking.) A monthly subscription to FilmStruck that includes access to Criterion’s movies costs $10.99, but the site offers a 14-day free trial when you sign up.

In other streaming video news, Netflix added five movies to its Indian catalog, including the documentaries Fireflies in the Abyss and Shukranallah and the fiction films M Cream, Miss India America, and Mumbai Cha Raja.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two additions to the catalog. The 2014 comedy Sulemani Keeda is now available for streaming, as is 2007’s Water, which returns to the service after a prolonged absence. Another Hindi title just expired from the catalog, and it’s a doozy: Queen.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with a big change: there are no more Bollywood movies on Hulu! With the expiration of Entertainment and Hunterrr, Hulu’s Indian collection is reduced to a handful of documentaries and about a dozen Bengali movies by Satyajit Ray. Hulu’s been shedding Hindi films over the last year, so we knew this was coming, but it still feels weird to see the plan completed.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several newly available titles. In addition to three intriguing indies — Amal, The Bright Day, and Good Night Good Morning — the 2015 Salman Khan-Sonam Kapoor romance Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is now available for streaming. I thought the movie was just okay, but it does have some lavish dance spectacles. For everything else new on Netflix, check Instant Watcher.

In other news, Hulu’s already meager Indian collection was decimated by the departure of five of its Hindi-language titles. Hulu’s Bollywood catalog is now just three titles. Here’s what got the boot:

Streaming Video News: October 30, 2015

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with one new addition to the catalog. 2015’s Hunterrr is now available for streaming, without a subscription. While not a perfect film, Hunterrr does have interesting performances by Radhika Apte and Gulshan Devaiah, two actors I’d love to see more of in the future.

New Hulu Streaming Page

I just added a new page to Access Bollywood with a list of Hindi movies streaming on Hulu in the United States. The link to the page is always accessible at the top of this site and in the right sidebar under “Other Pages at This Site”.

I’ll update the list regularly with movies newly added to Hulu as well as movies recently expired from the service. Enjoy!
