I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with five new additions to the catalog. Three early ’90s Shah Rukh Khan movies — Chamatkar, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, and Ram Jaane — are now available for streaming, as is the TV series Buddha and the Bollywood biography series Classic Legends, hosted by Javed Akhtar.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon’s Heera channel with one new addition: 2016’s Poorna, a biopic about a 13-year-old girl who climbed Mt. Everest, directed by Rahul Bose. Click here to try Heera free.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. 1920 London is now available for streaming, following a brief theatrical run back in May. If you need to catch up on the first film in the horror series, 1920 is available for free on Amazon Prime.

In other Netflix news, three Indian TV series were recently added to the service: Ekaant, Mumbai Railway, and Siyaasat. Three other TV series — Adaalat, C.I.D., and Maharana Pratap — will expire from the service on October 15, exactly one year after they were added.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several more additions to the collection. Yesterday’s catalog update also included the addition of six Hindi television series, both fiction and non-fiction. Thanks to Instant Watcher for alerting me to the newly added shows, listed below with genres in parenthesis:

In other Netflix news, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is set to expire on June 8. The movie is 90% great, but the bad 10% is right at the very end.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The 2012 crime epic Gangs of Wasseypur is now available for streaming. When the five-hour-plus film originally released in theaters, it was split into two parts. Netflix has taken that approach further, breaking the movie into eight episodes of approximately 40-minutes each. Netflix even classifies Gangs of Wasseypur as a TV show instead of a film.

I’m intrigued by this approach, as I think it could really help to make the movie more accessible. The plot is organized in a way that doesn’t suit an even split in the middle, so breaking it into smaller chapters should help maintain narrative cohesion. Psychologically, it also seems (at least to me) less daunting to commit to watching eight short episodes of a show than one five-hour film. Without having seen the episodic version, it sounds like a great idea.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with some new additions to the catalog. 2014’s Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is now available for streaming. I thought it was really cute.

The big news is that Netflix just added three Hindi-language TV shows to its catalog. The crime dramas Adaalat and C.I.D. are now available to stream, as is the historical drama Maharana Pratap. The twenty-six episodes of each of the crime dramas plus more than fifty episodes of Maharana Pratap add up to 50+ hours worth of entertainment. That helps to offset the pain of Netflix’s ever-dwindling Bollywood movie catalog.

Since we’re on the topic of TV shows, let me throw out links to two of my favorite Korean TV shows on Netflix: Boys Over Flowers and You Are Beautiful. Both shows are fantastic.
