I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 Kannada film Mundina Nildana. 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.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with info from today’s big announcement about the streaming service’s slate of upcoming Indian movies and TV series. In addition to five new series, Netflix announced five Original films that were already in the works and seven movies that have chosen not to wait for theaters to reopen (whenever that may be). Netflix’s press release has details about the new additions, all of which are in Hindi or English. The only one with a release date so far is the previously announced Gunjan Saxena, which debuts on Netflix on August 12.

For me, the highlights are Ludo (which stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, and Pankaj Tripathi), Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare (Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar), Aurangzeb director Atul Sabharwal’s Class of ’83, and Vikramaditya Motwane’s AK vs AK — shorthand for Anil Kapoor vs Anurag Kashyap.

The only one with a confirmed release date is the anthology movie Ghost Stories, from the filmmakers behind Bombay Talkies and Lust Stories. It premieres December 31.
