Streaming Video News: July 22, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera with an exciting new addition to the catalog. The reincarnation drama Raabta — which just released in theaters on June 9 — is now available for streaming!

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two American movies from 2011: Bobby Khan’s Ticket to Hollywood and When Harry Tries to Marry, starring Zenobia Shroff, best known for playing Kumail’s mom in The Big Sick.

Lastly, I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a bunch of new additions, including the Pakistani movies Ho Mann Jahaan, Waar, and Wrong No., as well as the comedy special Aditi Mittal: Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say and the India-set Swedish TV show Delhis vackraste Händer.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The animated children’s movie Chhota Bheem and the Curse of Damyaan is now available for streaming. Half-a-dozen titles are set to expire from Netflix on July 1, including: Bajatey Raho, Darr @ the Mall, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Greater Elephant, and Kshay.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of the 2016 Malayalam movie Shyam to the streaming service. For everything else new on Amazon Prime or Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

And I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera because Action Replayy is now available for streaming. The only reason to watch the 2010 time travel comedy is to see just how far Aditya Roy Kapur has come as an actor, because he’s super annoying in Action Replayy.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon’s Heera channel with one new addition to the catalog. Sonakshi Sinha’s Noor is now available for streaming, just seven weeks after its theatrical release. Sonakshi is better than the material she’s given to work with in Noor.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of the 2011 documentary The Highest Pass. The footage of the Indian Himalayas is beautiful, but I found the narrative a little too self-helpy for my tastes. For everything else new on Amazon Prime — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The 2017 family film The Wishing Tree — which features Shabana Azmi, Saurabh Shukla, and Shernaz Patel — is now available for streaming in the United States — before it opens in India on June 9! Fair warning that Kaanchi expires from Netflix on June 11. Watching it should not be a priority.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a couple of new additions to the catalog, including Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Liar’s Dice, which was popular on the festival circuit a few years ago. Also new is director Shomshuklla Das’s 2013 Bengali film Chhutii Aar Picnic.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a major new addition to the catalog. Shah Rukh Khan’s 2017 gangster drama Raees is now available for streaming. It’s not my favorite SRK film, but it has its moments. For everything else new on Netflix (Bollywood or not), check Instant Watcher.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera with two new additions, including another 2017 theatrical release — Commando 2! The plot is crazy, but Vidyut Jammwal action movies are always fun. The second new addition to Heera is 2016’s Dev Bhoomi: Land of the Gods. I’m not sure if Amazon’s deal with Cinestaan applies to the US as well as India, but the addition of Dev Bhoomi could presage the eventual addition of Konkona Sen Sharma’s directorial debut A Death in the Gunj to Heera. We’ll have to wait and see.

I made one addition to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime as well. The documentary Faith Connections — which director Pan Nalin made before Angry Indian Goddesses — is now available for streaming.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two new additions to the catalog, both from 2017. The Hindi films 30 Days in September and The Big Fat City are now available for streaming. It’s hard to find much information about these movies — such as whether they ever released theatrically — but both appear to be filmed versions of plays written by Mahesh Dattani, who directed both movies.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of 2006’s My Faraway Bride (aka My Bollywood Bride) to the streaming catalog. For everything else new on Amazon Prime, check Instant Watcher.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera with one new addition. The 2007 drama Swami — starring Manoj Bajpayee and Juhi Chawla — is now available for streaming.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two more additions to the catalog. The 2014 Bengali movie Teenkahon is now available for streaming, as is the 2013 Hindi film Siddharth, which I absolutely love.
