Streaming Video News: August 6, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with 30 new Indian titles added in the last week, including the new Amazon Original Hindi series Bandish Bandits (also in 4K UHD). The music-themed show features a soundtrack by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who were among the participants in a concert of songs from the series that streamed live on YouTube. Watch it here:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with an August 21 premiere date for the Netflix Original Hindi film Class of ’83, starring Bobby Deol. The trailer launches later tonight.

Kasey Moore of What’s on Netflix analyzed all of Netflix’s content across all languages and found that 10% of the movies and series on Netflix are in Hindi (552 titles total). That’s the second highest percentage after English (55%, or 3,186 titles). And in case you missed it, head to What’s on Netflix to check out my roundup of all the new Indian content added to Netflix in July.

Hotstar announced an August 28 release date for Sadak 2, starring Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Alia Bhatt.

Streaming Video News: July 16, 2020

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.
