I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition and several films soon to expire from the catalog. Faith Connections — a 2014 Hindi-language documentary about the Kumbh Mela — is now available for streaming.

Four films will leave Netflix on Wednesday, March 18, 2015: Dhoom, Dostana, Rocket Singh, and Veer-Zaara. My top viewing priorities are Veer-Zaara and Dostana, with Dhoom and Rocket Singh ranking a distant third place and fourth place, respectively.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three new additions to the catalog. After a few months’ absence, Ek Tha Tiger and Ladies vs Ricky Bahl are once more available for streaming. Also, just two months after its theatrical release in the U.S., Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain is now on Netflix. The English-language drama featuring Hollywood stars like Martin Sheen and Kal Penn alongside Bollywood vets like Rajpal Yadav and Tannishtha Chatterjee depicts the true, tragic events of a 1984 industrial disaster. It’s worth watching.

Romantic Bollywood Movies on Netflix

This post is from February, 2015. Click here to view my full, up-to-date list of all Hindi movies currently available on Netflix.

It’s Valentine’s Day, the perfect excuse for a romantic movie marathon. Here are some of the best lovey-dovey Bollywood flicks available for streaming on Netflix.

ddljDilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)

I could write an entire post about Shahrukh Khan romances on Netflix, given his fondness for the genre. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is a more recent SRK romantic-comedy than Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, but it’s hard to resist watching him woo Kajol in a true classic. My review

 

veerzaaraVeer-Zaara (2004)

If you’re in the mood for a more somber SRK romance, watch him love and lose Preity Zinta in Veer-Zaara. Rani Mukerji plays a lawyer who tries to reunite the lovers across borders.

 

MBKDMere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011)

As for romances starring actors other than SRK, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a light-hearted rom-com. Imran Khan plays matchmaker for his brother, Ali Zafar, only to fall in love with Katrina Kaif, the woman he’s chosen to be his brother’s bride. Fun dance numbers and sweet characters make this a really enjoyable film. My review

Band_Baaja_Baaraat_posterBand Baaja Baaraat (2010)

If you’re looking for flashy dance numbers, then Band Baaja Baaraat is where it’s at. For two wedding planners — played by Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh — getting down is part of the job. The relationship drama ramps up in the second half, but overall, this movie is a lot of fun. My review

 

ShuddhDesiRomanceShuddh Desi Romance (2013)

Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra, and Vaani Kapoor find themselves in a love triangle in Shuddh Desi Romance, a funny, clever film about modern romance in India. My review

 

KismatKonnectionKismat Konnection (2008)

Vidya Balan and Shahid Kapoor are lauded these days for their gripping dramatic performances, but back in 2008, they made a romantic comedy together. It’s worth checking out these seasoned thespians in some lighter fare from earlier in their careers. My review

Streaming Video News: January 30, 2015

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one change. The 2012 thriller Tezz departs the streaming service on February 6, 2015. There’s no need to prioritize watching this messy flick, about which I wrote: “The more of the plot that is revealed, the less necessary the film seems, especially when the events all stem from the inappropriate and dangerous response of a single man to an easily surmountable problem.”

Streaming Video News: January 23, 2015

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because another film produced by Excel Entertainment is departing the service. As of January 30, 2015, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. will no longer be available for streaming. This follows on the heels of today’s removal of Dil Chahta Hai, Don, and Lakshya from the catalog. Assuming this is a trend, it may be worth boosting good, older Excel releases like Rock On!! and Luck By Chance to the top of your Netflix queue.

Streaming Video News: January 16, 2015

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because three films are about to expire from the streaming service. Dil Chahta Hai, Don, and Lakshya — three movies from Farhan Akhtar’s studio, Excel Entertainment — all leave Netflix on January 23, 2015. Don was one of the first Hindi movies I saw in a theater, I loved Dil Chahta Hai, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about Lakshya. If you’re looking to marathon some movies this weekend, these three are a good place to start.
