I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films added in the last week, most of which are decades old or Hindi-dubbed versions of South Indian movies.

Amazon also launched the official trailers for Ponmagal Vandhal (which premieres May 29) and Gulabo Sitabo, which debuts globally on Prime on June 12.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of the 2020 Hindi thriller Malang, starring Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Disha Patani.

I also updated list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of the new Amazon Original Hindi crime series Paatal Lok (also in 4K UHD), starring Jaideep Ahlawat.

Amazon made the big announcement that director Shoojit Sircar’s comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo — starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana — will not wait for theaters to reopen, but will instead debut worldwide on Amazon Prime on June 12.

If you’re interested in what the future may hold for theatrical releases, I recommend this episode of The Boxoffice Podcast. The discussion centers around American theaters and titles, but the same concerns apply to studios and cinemas globally.
