Streaming Video News: June 15, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the worldwide debut of Lust Stories, a followup to 2013’s anthology film Bombay Talkies (also available on Netflix), featuring new short movies from the same four directors: Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar, and Anurag Kashyap.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of the April theatrical release Blackmail, starring Irrfan Khan. Other recent additions include the Tamil films Rombha Nallavan Da Nee, Saivam, Vetri Selvan, and Yaamirukka Bayamey.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two 2018 theatrical releases. Varun Dhawan’s October and Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu are now available for streaming. Other recent additions include Karthik Kumar’s standup comedy special Blood Chutney, the Kannada film Puta Tirugisi Nodi, the Hindi-dubbed flicks Mera Aakrosh and Shivam the Warrior, and the Tamil movies Engaeyum Eppothum, Naaigal Jaakirathai, and Pisasu.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of two movies that released in theaters earlier this year, each starring a stellar lead actress. The thriller Missing — starring Tabu and Manoj Bajpayee — is now available for streaming, which is cool since it only released theatrically in India, not in the US. Rani Mukerji’s Hichki is also now available (and well worth watching). Thanks to Gaurav Arora for giving me the heads up about Hichki!

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a newly announced expiration date. You’ve got until July 3, 2018, to catch all thirteen episodes of the 2015 TV series Adrishya. This is part of the purging of shows produced by the TV channel Epic, which were only under contract to air on Netflix for two years. Six shows just expired on June 1, and we can expect to see Ekaant and Siyaasat hit bricks in September.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of some new TV shows and comedy specials. Besides the Hindi series Pushpavalli and Shaitaan Haveli, the Amazon exclusive drama Gangstars premiered in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The new comedy specials feature comedians Kautuk Srivastava, Nishant Tanwar, and Rahul Subramanian.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few additions to the catalog. B.A. Pass 2, the Marathi film Natsamrat: Asa Nat Hone Nahi, and the TV series Gabru: Hip Hop Revolution are all now available for streaming.

The most interesting addition to the world of streaming video this week is the debut of Saif Ali Khan’s black comedy Kaalakaandi on Hotstar. If you haven’t taken advantage of their free week trial, this might be a good time to do so.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few new additions to the catalog. The Malayalam film Aadu 2 and the Urdu movie Chalay Thay Saath are now available for streaming, as is the February Bollywood release Aiyaary. It’s not a great movie, but any Manoj Bajpayee is better than no Manoj Bajpayee.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several 2018 releases, including Hate Story 4, the Telugu action drama Rangasthalam, the Bengali romcom Raja Rani Raji, and the Hindi kids film Chakarghinni, that I can’t seem to find any information about. I cleaned up the list a bit as well, removing titles that expired. Dil, Listen… Amaya, Mann, Shootout at Lokhandwala, and Shor in the City are all still available to watch with an Amazon Channels subscription to Eros Now (free 7-day trial), and Ocean of Pearls is available with a subscription to the Gaia channel (free 7-day trial).

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of new seasons of a couple of Hindi cartoons for kids: Prince Jai Aur Dumdaar Viru and Sab Jholmaal Hai.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several new additions, including Anushka Sharma’s horror movie Pari, which released into theaters on March 2. Other new offerings include the Hindi films Accident on Hill Road, Deadline: Sirf 24 Ghante, Dehraadun Diary, Kuchh Meetha Ho Jaye, and Rudraksh.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two new additions to the catalog. Amitabh & Rekha’s 1977 film Alaap is now available for streaming, as is Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Prime now has two 2018 theatrical releases — SKTKS and Padmaavat — in its catalog, while Netflix has none (although it is the exclusive home of Love Per Square Foot). Oh, and Eros Now has Mukkabaaz.

We’re approaching the time of year when we can expect to see 2018 theatrical releases show up on streaming services more regularly. On May 26 of last year, Netflix added Raees, and Amazon’s Heera (R.I.P.) added Commando 2. Two more 2017 titles showed up in June before things really picked up in July. If there’s a movie you missed seeing in the theater earlier this year, you may not have to wait much longer before you can watch it from the comfort of home.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of recent additions to the catalog. The new batch includes a few Tamil and Marathi films and some Hindi-dubbed titles, but most are Hindi movies. I’ve only seen a few of them, including Aakrosh (which I found really accessible for an international audience), Kidnap (which had its moments), and Jail (which stunk). Here are the rest of the new Hindi films (for all other titles, check the “Newly Added” section at the top of my Amazon Prime page):

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix to include the surprise addition of three older Shah Rukh Khan movies: Main Hoon Na, Paheli,and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with six more contributions from Shemaroo Entertainment. New additions include the 1989 Aamir Khan-Juhi Chawla romance Love Love Love, the Raveena Tandon films Ghulam-E-Musthafa and Satta, plus two more recent releases: Bollywood Diaries and Jigariyaa. I’m most intrigued by the comedy Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, starring Naseeruddin Shah (click the CC button in the video below for English subtitles).

Streaming Video News: April 11, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with almost three dozen additions to the streaming catalog (everything above Bumm Bumm Bole under the “Newly Added” section of the page). Just the other day I had a Twitter conversation about Shemaroo Entertainment making some of their titles available on Prime, and they went ahead and added even more movies, including Shah Rukh Khan’s Yeh Lamhe Juddai Ke and the meh 2011 romantic comedy Tere Mere Phere. Tiger Zinda Hai is now available, too, in both regular High Definition and Ultra High Definition (UHD).

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix to include The Tiger Hunter, which stars Danny Pudi as an Indian immigrant building a life in Chicago in the 1970s. The movie played at a number of film festivals in 2016, including the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles. IFFLA 2018 starts today, and you can view the lineup here. If you can’t make it out to LA for the fest, the Hindi Titus Andronicus adaptation The Hungry is available on Amazon Prime.
