Streaming Video News: October 14, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of upcoming expiration dates. Amazon’s content licensing deals for the back catalogs of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and the Bhatt brothers’ Vishesh Films are up, which means that fifty-two Hindi films will leave Prime before the end of the month. Recent releases like Dharma’s Kalank and Vishesh’s Begum Jaan are sticking around, but the classic Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… and the guilty pleasure horror flick Khamoshiyan are on the way out. The Dharma movies are likely heading to Netflix, but I’m not sure about the Vishesh pictures. Here’s a list of all the titles on their way out, organized by expiration date:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two 2019 Bollywood releases added today. John Abraham’s Batla House is now available for streaming, as is Kunaal Roy Kapur’s comedy Marudhar Express. Dozens of other Indian films have been added in the last week, including Aamir Khan’s 2005 historical drama Mangal Pandey and the 2019 releases Jaddi Sardar (Punjabi) and Kolaiyuthir Kaalam (Tamil).

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 Hindi drama Noblemen, starring Kunal Kapoor. In other Netflix news, the Kannada films Kahi and U Turn expire from the streaming service on October 15, followed by the riveting Bollywood crime drama Raman Raghav 2.0 on October 16.

Finally, Mission Mangal is now available for streaming on Hotstar. It’s problematic but watchable.

October got off to a slow start on these two streaming video services, and there’s little on the horizon for the rest of the month. According to Bollywood Buff, Batla House comes to Prime in India on October 11, although that date may not apply to the United States and Canada. The only new Hindi release on the docket for Netflix is their straight-to-streaming film Upstarts, starring Bhavesh Joshi Superhero‘s Priyanshu Painyuli. Upstarts debuts on Netflix October 18.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of new additions in recent days. The highest profile newcomer is the Amazon Original Hindi series The Family Man, starring Manoj Bajpayee as a spy struggling to balance his work and family life. Amazon is so confident of the series’ international breakout potential that they had the cast record an English dub of the dialogue as well. It’s also available in 4K Ultra HD in both Hindi and English. Other 2019 releases just added include:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of Kabir Singh. The 2016 horror film 1920 London is poised to expire on September 24.

It’s last call for movies from the Yash Raj Films catalog at Amazon Prime. YRF is taking its library to Hotstar, and Prime has started posting expiration dates for the 60+ films on the way out. Most titles — including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge — will be gone in the next two weeks. The most recent releases will be the last to go, with no departure dates announced for films like Thugs of Hindostan and Sui Dhaaga: Made In India. I’ll update this post when their dates are announced. Here are the expiration dates we know so far:

In other big Amazon Prime news, looks like we have confirmation that the Yash Raj Films catalog really is leaving Prime, with a handful of movies departing in the next two weeks. Kabhi Kabhie, Salaam Namaste, and Vijay all expire on September 25, followed by Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year on September 27. I’ll post expiration dates as they appear.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the excellent 2019 thriller Article 15. Based on my experience, it’s a good movie to recommend to people who don’t normally watch Hindi films. Other recent additions include the 2019 Tamil release Watchman and the 2018 Telugu movies C/o Kancharapalem and Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi.
