I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s premiere of the new Original Hindi series, Scoop, directed by Hansal Mehta. Other additions in the last two days include the return of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (which I thought was decent), a new season of Chhota Bheem, and the 2013 Telugu films Attarintiki Daredi, David, Ramachari, and Ramayya Vasthavayya.

If you missed out on anything added to Netflix last month, check out my May recap for What’s on Netflix.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with the new Hindi series School of Lies (also available in Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu).

Finally, I update my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the additions of the Marathi film Maharashtra Shaheer, the Telugu movie Ugram, and the streaming debut of the Tamil epic Ponniyin Selvan: Part 2. Here’s a link to Ponniyin Selvan: Part 1 if you need to catch up.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of two Hindi theatrical releases: Jimmy Shergill’s Operation Mayfair and the social issue drama Bheed. It’s worth noting that the version of Bheed — which deals with the turmoil of India’s COVID-19 lockdown — that Netflix carries is the censored version of the film, according to this report in The Hindu.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of Ajay Devgn’s March theatrical release Bholaa.

I’ll update my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu tomorrow when Season 3 of the Hindi series City of Dreams debuts.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with this week’s surprise addition of the 2023 Ranbir Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor romantic comedy Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar. A bunch of Telugu titles were added as well, including Amrutham Chandamamalo, Rowdy Fellow, Thammudu, Three, Yogi, and the 2023 theatrical release Meter.

Weirdly, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is temporarily unavailable after having just been added to Netflix on March 15. It’s set to return May 31. A handful of Indian titles will expire from Netflix over the next several weeks, including:

Streaming Video News: February 21, 2023

It’s last call for a bunch of Dharma Productions titles on Amazon Prime and Netflix, which will also lose a ton of Balaji Motion Pictures films this week as well. Here’s what’s leaving when, and why this may not be cause for panic.

First of all, thanks to CinemaRare on Twitter for listing the movies on the way out. One thing to notice immediately is that some of the titles on CinemaRare’s list are currently available in India but not the United States. This is because streaming rights are negotiated on a regional — and sometimes country-specific — basis between the company that owns the film’s rights and the streaming service interested in licensing them. These contracts cover a specified time period, after which the rights holder can renegotiate a new contract or shop their content elsewhere.

That’s likely what’s happening with Dharma and Balaji now. There’s every chance that they will simply sign a new contract with the same streaming companies for another few years. Balaji did that in late 2020 with Netflix. If that’s the case, then the titles may only be unavailable for a short window. I’m going to wait a week or two before removing the links to the expiring titles from my Netflix list and my Amazon Prime list just in case the films are renewed.

However, there is a chance that the Dharma Productions titles may not return to Netflix. Karan Johar and Dharma have a deal with Amazon Prime to bring their newest theatrical releases to Prime and to create new streaming content for the service. I won’t be shocked if they want to make the back catalog exclusive to Prime as well. If you subscribe to Netflix but not Prime, you may want to prioritize watching the expiring Dharma titles listed below this week.

Here are all of the Dharma Productions and Balaji Motion Pictures titles expiring from Netflix and Amazon Prime in the next week (note that the last day to watch is the day before the expiration date):

Expiring from Netflix February 27 (Balaji Motion Pictures titles)

Expiring from Netflix February 28 (Dharma Productions titles)

Expiring from Netflix March 1

Expiring from Amazon Prime February 27 (Dharma Productions titles)*

*The Amazon Prime Dharma list looks small by comparison to the Netflix list because some of the films are available on Eros Now instead of Prime, while others have already expired from Prime. Keeping track of all this stuff is no joke!
