Tag Archives: Indian Comedy Specials on Amazon Prime

Streaming Video News: September 24, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few upcoming expiration dates. Akira, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, and the Assamese movie Kothanodi all leave Netflix on October 1, 2018. M.S. Dhoni was just okay, and Akira — aka Naam Hai Akira — was awful, so their departure isn’t a devastating loss.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several new titles, including the improv comedy special Go Straight Take Left and the 2018 Hindi release Nawabzaade, starring ABCD‘s Dharmesh Yelande and Punit Pathak.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of recently added titles. In addition to a dozen older Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu titles, several 2018 releases are now available for streaming: Bus Stop (Marathi), Shaadi Teri Bajayenge Hum Band (Hindi), Uma (Bengali), and the Telugu films Goodachari and Srinavasa Kalyanam. The comedy special Improv All Stars: Game Night is also available, as is the English-language, Bollywood-inspired musical Basmati Blues, which is all kinds of problematic.

Amazon released the teaser for the new dating show Hear Me Love Me, hosted by Shilpa Shetty. It premieres September 28:

One bit of Netflix news is that, after a one-day absence, PK is available for streaming again.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with more new additions to the catalog. Besides the previously announced arrival of the Netflix original film Brij Mohan Amar Rahe!, 2 States and Baaghi showed up as well today — something of a surprise after yesterday’s massive infusion of new Bollywood titles into the catalog. 2 States is legitimately good, and Baaghi is unintentionally hilarious. It was one of the two movies I picked to discuss with Erin and Matt when they invited me to appear on the Bollywood Is For Lovers podcast.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two new additions. Comedian Sorabh Pant’s second stand-up special — Make India Great Again — is now available for streaming, as is the 2017 Tamil movie Maayavan.

The most interesting addition to the world of streaming video this week is the debut of Saif Ali Khan’s black comedy Kaalakaandi on Hotstar. If you haven’t taken advantage of their free week trial, this might be a good time to do so.
