Streaming Video News: October 1, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with more than fifty Indian titles that are now available for streaming. Most of the new films are in Hindi (23 titles), Punjabi (22), or Tamil (7), with one new addition each in Marathi and Bengali (as well as one Urdu movie from Pakistan). The full list of titles is available in the “Newly Added” section at the top of my Netflix page. Here are all of the Bollywood films that were just added:

Supposedly, Soorma is scheduled to join Netflix in India on October 20, with Sanju set to join the catalog this month as well, so we’ll keep an eye on that. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I also update my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with one new addition to the streaming catalog: the road trip movie Karwaan, which hit in theaters back on August 3, 2018. The July, 2018 theatrical release Dhadak comes to Prime in India on October 4, so hopefully we’ll get it here in the US as well.

Update: Thanks to my Twitter pal Gaurav for letting me know that Fanney Khan debuts on Amazon Prime on October 12, and Sanju hits Netflix on October 15.

In Theaters: February 27

In the Chicago area this weekend, the AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville and the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington are both showing Billu Barber and Delhi-6. The AMC Loews Pipers Alley 4 in Chicago is also carrying Delhi-6 over for a second week.

According to box office returns for the weekend of February 20-22, Delhi-6 earned $602,850 in its opening week in U.S. theaters. Billu Barber earned a total of $698,910 during its first two weeks of release, while Luck By Chance (my favorite of the three movies) has earned only $355,492 after four weeks in theaters. Dev D, which did not open in the Chicago area, has earned a total of only $18,613 after three weeks in theaters.
