Tag Archives: Hindi Movies on Amazon Prime

Streaming Video News: October 19, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two new additions to the catalog. The 2013 Telugu movie Naa Bangaaru Talli is now available for streaming, which is significant because Netflix only has three other Telugu films (plus the Hindi-dubbed version of Eega). Also new is the 2018 Tamil film Mr. Chandramouli. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of John Abraham’s August action flick Satyameva Jayate.

A gander through my massive Amazon Watchlist revealed that more than 25% of Prime’s Bengali catalog will expire by October 25. There are a handful of Hindi movies expiring, too, and the some titles depart the service as early as tomorrow. It’s not unusual for movies to disappear from Prime only to return the next day after Amazon negotiates a new contract with the distributors, but if one of the titles on the chopping block is in your Watchlist, best get to it toot sweet, just in case. For the full list of 44 movies on their way out, check the “Expiring Soon” section of my Amazon page, right underneath the “Newly Added” section.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 sports biopic Soorma to the streaming catalog.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several 2018 theatrical releases. The lone Hindi film among them is Fanney Khan, which was disappointing in spite of its stellar cast. The Marathi movies Me Yetoy…Chhota Pudhari and Take Care Good Night are now available for streaming, as are the Tamil and Telugu versions of the thriller U Turn. (If you want to watch the 2016 Kannada film of the same name on which the new versions are based, find it here on Netflix.)

There are still more titles on the way in October. Sanju is supposedly coming to Netflix this month, and Prime announced that it will add John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate on October 19.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two 2018 theatrical releases. The romantic drama Dhadak is now available for streaming, as is the Bengali movie Bidaay Byomkesh. I also found some previously unknown titles during my ongoing project of checking Amazon’s “Customers who watched this item also watched” entries for every film on this list (!). Here’s what I turned up:

One update to the Netflix list is the addition of the 2017 Punjabi movie The Black Prince.

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.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few upcoming expiration dates. Akira, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, and the Assamese movie Kothanodi all leave Netflix on October 1, 2018. M.S. Dhoni was just okay, and Akira — aka Naam Hai Akira — was awful, so their departure isn’t a devastating loss.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several new titles, including the improv comedy special Go Straight Take Left and the 2018 Hindi release Nawabzaade, starring ABCD‘s Dharmesh Yelande and Punit Pathak.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of recently added titles. In addition to a dozen older Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu titles, several 2018 releases are now available for streaming: Bus Stop (Marathi), Shaadi Teri Bajayenge Hum Band (Hindi), Uma (Bengali), and the Telugu films Goodachari and Srinavasa Kalyanam. The comedy special Improv All Stars: Game Night is also available, as is the English-language, Bollywood-inspired musical Basmati Blues, which is all kinds of problematic.

Amazon released the teaser for the new dating show Hear Me Love Me, hosted by Shilpa Shetty. It premieres September 28:

One bit of Netflix news is that, after a one-day absence, PK is available for streaming again.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three movies from last year. The action spin-off Naam Shabana is now available for streaming, as are Qarib Qarib Singlle and the Telugu thriller Spyder. I found Naam Shabana kinda slow.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of titles set to expire in early September. Catch these while you can:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because the horror series Ghoul is now available for streaming. The Netflix original series stars Radhika Apte and Manav Kaul, and it consists of three 45-minute episodes. On behalf of my fellow cowards, I appreciate that the whole series can be finished in one sitting with plenty of daylight hours to spare.

In other Netflix news, Chennai Express is set to expire on August 30, which is weird since it was just added on August 7. I’m not sure what’s up with that, but if it’s in your queue, you’d best watch it while you can in case it really disappears for good. Netflix also announced its acquisition of the movie Garbage by the director Q (Quashiq Mukherjee), with an anticipated premiere date later this year (possibly as early as September).

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with some newly added Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu films, joining Race 3 on the service for your weekend viewing pleasure. For everything else new on Prime — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the additions of 2015’s Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein, the Telugu film Shankar Dada M.B.B.S., the Tamil movies Billa and Rowdy Kottai, and the Hindi comedy specials  Best of K Se Comedy and Best of Waiting Lounge.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with more than a dozen new additions to the catalog. Ten of those films are Malayalam flicks from the last year or so, as well as the 2015 Hindi movie P Se PM Tak and the cartoon Mahabharat. I’m especially excited that Tikli and Laxmi Bomb is finally available for streaming. It had been on the festival circuit for the last year, and it’s really thought-provoking. I recommend it.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with ten new Indian films. The 2018 Tamil theatrical release Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is now available for streaming, along with six Telugu movies, and the Bollywood flicks Amit Sahni Ki List, Main Aisa Hi Hoon, and 8×10 Tasveer (which is not very good).
