Streaming Video News: August 1, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with seven newly added Indian films and two TV shows. The Hindi movies 3 Idiots, Darna Mana Hai, Ek Hasina Thi, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, and Wazir are now available on for streaming — which is a little weird because they’re all available on Amazon Prime as well. 3 Idiots, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, and Wazir were all added to Prime in the last month, in fact. So much for exclusivity on the streaming services, I guess. Also new to Netflix today are the 2019 Tamil sequel Uriyadi 2, the Telugu film Manu, the Hindi docuseries Regiment Diaries, and the Pakistani drama series Khaani.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a dozen new additions in the last two days, including three 2019 releases: Diljit Dosanjh’s Punjabi comedy Shadaathe Marathi drama DNA, and Mammootty’s Malayalam action film Unda, which is also available in 4K Ultra HD.

August 2 Update: Salman Khan’s June, 2019 release Bharat is now on Amazon Prime.

Streaming Video News: January 3, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of new additions to the streaming catalog. Highlights among the recently added movies — which mostly consist of older Hindi and Telugu titles — include Village Rockstars, India’s submission to this year’s Oscars. The movie was originally filmed in Assamese, but Amazon’s version is dubbed in Hindi. Also new is the Richa Chadda & Neil Nitin Mukesh movie Ishqeria, which was filmed from 2012-2014 but didn’t release until September of last year. I’m also really excited because Andhadhun director Sriram Raghavan’s first film, Ek Hasina Thi, is finally available for streaming.

Amazon’s recent strategy — at least the one they’re allowing distributors to pursue — is to add about a dozen or so Indian movies to the catalog every day. It sounds cool, but it’s really easy to miss stuff if you take a few days off. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love for you to visit Access Bollywood every day to see what’s new, but you shouldn’t be obligated. Adding movies in large batches on a regular schedule would give titles and consumers (and me, LOL!) room to breathe.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix. Netflix started the new year quietly, with the addition of three Tamil movies — Merku Thodarchi Malai, Puriyatha Puthir, and Taramani — and the original series Comedians of the World, featuring stand-up specials from Indian comics Atul Khatri, Aditi Mittal, and Amit Tandon.
