Streaming Video News: July 1, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two dozen additions to the streaming catalog. More than half of the new films are Malayalam movies from the last year or two, including Angamaly Diaries. Notable titles among the newly added Hindi films include SRK & Rani’s Chalte Chalte, the Govinda-Priyanka Chopra comedy Deewana Main Deewana, Akshay & Katrina’s Namastey London, Imtiaz Ali’s directorial debut Socha Na Tha, and the 2018 release Zoo, featuring Brahman Naman star Shashank Arora and directed by Haraamkhor‘s Shlok Sharma.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two new additions: the 2017 Tamil film Sakka Podu Podu Raja and Golmaal Again, which I think has been available on Prime in India for a while. Lucky us?

2011 Chicago South Asian Film Festival

As if the eight Indian films showing in Chicago area theaters this weekend weren’t enough to keep you busy, the second annual Chicago South Asian Film Festival opens tonight with a screening of 2008’s Rang Rasiya, followed by a Q & A session with the movie’s stars, Nandana Sen and Randeep Hooda. Actor Gulshan Grover, whose film I Am Kalam screens on Saturday, is also expected to be in attendance at the opening night gala.

The festival, which takes place at Columbia College from Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2, will screen twenty-seven films, from features to documentaries to shorts. Ticket prices for individual films range from $5 to $10, but there are a number of free films showing at the Chicago Cultural Center throughout the weekend.

In honor of the festival, Kama Indian Bistro in La Grange is offering 20% off meals to patrons who present their CSAFF ticket stubs through the end of October.
