Streaming Video News: May 14, 2020

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.

Streaming Video News: May 8, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of about a dozen Indian titles in the last several days, including the 2020 pictures Valayam (Telugu) and Dhauli (Hindi) and Praveen Kumar’s new Tamil stand-up comedy special Mr. Family Man. Amazon also released the trailer for its new Hindi crime series Paatal Lok, which debuts May 15.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the trailer for the short-run Hindi horror series Betaal, which debuts on May 24. It’s directed by Patrick Graham, who previously directed the horror series Ghoul for Netflix (as is obvious from the look and vibe of the trailer):

In other news, it looks like the two big releases originally set to face-off in theaters on May 22 will now be heading straight to streaming video. Bollywood Hungama reports a likely June release of Akshay Kumar’s Laxxmi Bomb on Hotstar. The makers of that weekend’s other big flick — Salman Khan’s Radhe — are also considering a streaming release, but they’re asking in the neighborhood of $30 million for the streaming rights (per Bollywood Hungama). The Abhishek Bachchan-Aditya Roy Kapur film Ludo may also head to streaming after missing its April release date. All of these decisions are predicated on the current prevailing industry sentiment that theaters won’t reopen until September at the earliest.

Streaming Video News: April 3, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than a dozen Indian titles added in the last two days, including the new Hindi series Panchayat, which looks kinda good. Newly added 2020 releases include:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is now available for streaming. (Thanks for the alert, Courtney!) And check out my post “New Indian Movies & TV Series on Netflix: March 2020” at What’s on Netflix, just to make sure there’s nothing you missed last month. 🙂

Netflix released the trailer for its new dark comedy series Hasmukh, which stars Vir Das as a comic who resorts to murder to overcome his stage fright. Hasmukh debuts on Netflix April 17. It’s worth watching the trailer below just to see Manoj Pahwa’s ridiculous wig.

There are a few new releases lined up before the end of the month, including the stand-up special Vir Das for India on January 26. The Rajkummar Rao-Hema Malini romantic comedy Shimla Mirchi debuts on January 27, following a really brief theatrical run in India earlier this month. On January 30, we finally get Karan Johar’s makeover reality dating show What the Love!, which will either be great or disastrous. Celebrity guests include Huma Qureshi, Saif Ali Khan, Ali Fazal, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, and Sunny Leone.

Streaming Video News: January 16, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of Rajkummar Rao’s 2019 comedy Made in China and director Rima Das’s Assamese film Bulbul Can Singh. The Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Athiya Shetty romantic-comedy Motichoor Chaknachoor arrives on the service on January 20.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian films added in the last week, including the John Abraham-led ensemble comedy Pagalpanti.

Two new shows debut on Prime on Friday, January 17 — the Russell Peters comedy series Deported and the thriller series Afsos, starring Gulshan Devaiah. It looks pretty good. [Update: The release of Afsos was postponed “due to unforeseen circumstances“.]

Streaming Video News: October 18, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the streaming debut of Saaho. It’s not available in Hindi — that version is headed to Netflix in November — but it is available in Kannada, Malayalam (standard and 4K UHD), Tamil (standard and 4K UHD), and Telugu (standard and 4K UHD).* Dozens of other Indian movies have been added in the last week, including the new Vir Das travel series Jestination Unknown and the following 2019 releases:

Make sure to scroll down the Prime page past the new additions to the Expiring Soon section, because I found many more films set to leave Prime by the end of the month since posting this list of 60 or so expiring titles.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the Netflix original Hindi film Upstarts. I added the Australian series The Unlisted to the list as well. It’s about a pair of Desi twins, and the first episode takes place during their family’s Diwali celebrations. Timely!

Streaming Video News: March 8, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 50 Indian titles added in the last week, the most exciting of which is Zoya Akhtar’s new original drama series Made In Heaven (also available in 4K Ultra HD). Other recently added 2019 releases include:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several additions since the first of the month, including the original series Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians. Other newly added titles include the Tamil movie Sarvam Thaala Mayam and the Hindi films Contract, Dear Dad, I Am, and War Chhod Na Yaar, which is meh. If you’ve been meaning to watch Zila Ghaziabad on Netflix, don’t bother you have until March 15 to do so.

Today, Netflix announced a June 14 debut date for the dystopian Hindi series Leila, starring Huma Qureshi. The teaser has a definite Handmaid’s Tale vibe about it.

Streaming Video News: February 8, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 60 Indian films added in the last week. Today’s big new addition is the Telugu film NTR: Kathanayakudu, which released in theaters just last month! K.G.F: Chapter 1 was recently added to Prime in four languages (but not Hindi):

If you haven’t caught up with the Amazon original series Four More Shots Please! yet, Shah Shahid highly recommends it.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix at the beginning of the month with three “new” Indian titles: Manusangada (2017/Tamil), Truckbar Swapna (2018/Marathi), and Talvar, which is back after a two-month vacation. Note that Netflix lists Talvar by its international title, Guilty.

Streaming Video News: December 12, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of recent additions. Since the massive catalog purge at the end of last month, Prime has added more than 60 titles, including the new original series Vella Raja, available in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu in both standard and Ultra-HD. Jimmy Shergill’s 2018 theatrical release Phamous is among the recently added Bollywood movies, which also include a bunch of older titles. Here are some that I’ve reviewed:

For the full list of recent additions to the catalog, head to my Prime page and check out the “Newly Added” section at the top. (All of the Amazon links include my affiliate tag, meaning I get a portion of the proceeds from any items purchased through those links.)

In Netflix news, the new Andy Serkis movie Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle debuted last week, but the Hindi audio option isn’t available in the United States — even though it features an awesome voice cast that includes Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, and Jackie Shroff. But we do have German, Italian, French, and Spanish audio options, so there’s that. Head over to my Netflix page to explore other recent additions to the catalog, including a new Vir Das comedy special.
