I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several new additions to the catalog. Two Shah Rukh Khan films from 2001 — Asoka and One 2 Ka 4 — are now available for streaming, evidently part of Netflix’s deal with Red Chillies Entertainment. Also newly added were two movies from 2014: the Marathi film Sunrise and the Malayalam movie Ottaal, listed at Netflix by its English title, “The Trap“. Thanks to Aroon Deep — Access Bollywood’s unofficial Twitter correspondent on the Netflix beat — for alerting me to the new additions!
I made one other change to my Netflix page by adding each film’s language next to its release year for titles in the section “Other Indian and Pakistani Movies on Netflix.” For some reason, Netflix no longer lists a film’s language on its individual page, nor does it list whether subtitles are available or in what languages. Since nothing else changed regarding the design or structure of the individual movie pages, this seems unnecessarily reductive. I hope this is just a temporary glitch.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. Last year’s action sequel Force 2 — starring John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha — is now available for streaming. It’s a fun followup to a really terrific thriller. It’s also the sixth 2016 release added to Netflix this month. Let’s hope Netflix’s renewed fondness for recent mainstream Bollywood fare continues.
