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. Piya Behrupiya is a filmed version of the stage play by the same name, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night that played at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater last fall (though I’m not sure where the Netflix version was recorded). Also new is comedian Hasan Minhaj’s stand-up special Homecoming King.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon’s Heera Channel with another new stand-up special — Biswa Kalyan Rath: Biswa Mast Aadmi. Biswa gained fame as a member of the duo behind Pretentious Movie Reviews, and he had a killer cameo in Brahman Naman.

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 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 five additions to the streaming catalog: Aiyyaa, Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, Gabbar Is Back, Madras Cafe, and Michael, starring Naseeruddin Shah. Madras Cafe is the most interesting of the new additions that I’ve seen. Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is underdeveloped, and Gabbar Is Back‘s narrative is a disaster.
