I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with twenty-two new additions to the catalog! About half of these titles were on Netflix years ago, but the rest — films like Highway, Mohenjo Daro, and PK — are available on the service for the first time. I’m excited that three more of director Vishal Bhardwaj’s movies have joined the catalog. Here are all the titles added today:

In other Netflix news, the streaming service announced that it’s begun work on a Baahubali prequel series based on Anand Neelakantan’s book The Rise of Sivagami. Woo hoo!

Two Bollywood movies were just added to Netflix: 2012’s Rowdy Rathore and 2008’s Fashion. I found both Fashion and Rowdy Rathore moderately enjoyable. For everything else new on Netflix, check Instant Watcher.

Shaadi Ke Side Effects — a moderately enjoyable movie from earlier this year — is now available for streaming on Eros Now.

Movie Review: Fashion (2008)

Fans of Project Runway will enjoy this inside look at the seamy side of the fashion industry. Priyanka Chopra (a former Miss World herself) plays Meghna, a small-town girl who dreams of becoming a supermodel. Her morals are put to the test as her star rises; quaintly, she considers wine and cigarettes gateway drugs. Apart from the stereotypical treatment of gay characters, Fashion has continuity, believable performances and enough content for a TV mini-series.
