Sadly, Aisha and Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai are no longer available on Prime.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of a bunch of cartoons in the Chhota Bheem series. On May 15, the Bengali movies Ant Story and Television expire along with a few filmed versions of Hindi plays. Netflix announced that the original movie Chopsticks — starring Karwaan‘s Mithila Palkar, Abhay Deol, and Vijay Raaz — debuts on the service on May 31.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a couple of new additions to start the month of May. The 2019 Marathi film Sur Sapata and the 2018 Bengali movie Kia and Cosmos are now available for streaming.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of a new straight-to-streaming Hindi film — Music Teacher, starring Manav Kaul, Amrita Bagchi, and Divya Dutta.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a couple dozen Indian films added in the last few days, including the 2019 releases Boomerang (Tamil) and Sakala Kala Vallabhudu (Telugu) and the disappointing 2015 comedy Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. India’s submission to this year’s Oscars — Village Rockstars — is also now available in its Hindi-dubbed form.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a blockbuster new addition. Gully Boy is now available for streaming! It’s yet another terrific movie from filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, and a phenomenal example of character creation. Another 2019 release new to Prime is the Kannada film Yajamana.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 Bengali film Rainbow Jelly, a bunch of older Hindi flicks — Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Jhankaar Beats, Mumbai Matinee, and Shabd — and the English movie Bollywood Calling, starring Om Puri.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of Rajinikanth’s January release Petta, as well as the 2018 Hindi horror flick Lupt. Also new in the last few days is the 2019 drama Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which made over $1 million in North America but only lasted four weeks in theaters. It’s a great opportunity for those of us who missed out to finally catch up.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with almost four dozen Indian films added in the last four days. Five 2019 releases were added — Chambal (Kannada), Crazy Crazy Feeling (Telugu), Spot (Tamil), Thadam (Tamil), and Vinara Sodara Veera Kumara (Telugu) — along with a second season of the series Laakhon Mein Ek, now available in Tamil and Telugu in addition to the original Hindi (just choose your desired season in the drop-down menu). Also new on Prime is the 2016 Bollywood romance Mirzya, which is visually stunning and has great music (and is also on Netflix).

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few additions to start the month of April. The 2019 Hindi thriller 706 — starring Divya Dutta and Atul Kulkarni — is now available for streaming, as is Arshad Warsi’s 2016 comedy The Legend of Michael Mishra. The most intriguing addition is the series Midnight Misadventures with Mallika Dua, in which the comedian cooks with celebrities like Sanya Malhotra, Vicky Kaushal, Huma Qureshi, Rajkummar Rao, and Radhika Apte.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 30 additions since Friday. Newly added 2019 titles include the Telugu film Love Game and the Tamil movie Dev, which is available dubbed in Telugu as well.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the premiere of the Netflix Original Marathi movie 15 August. A bunch of Hindi movies expire from the service March 30, so tonight is your last chance to watch these titles:

Shah Rukh Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment has a streaming deal with Netflix that lasts through the end of this year, and I’ve wondered when Zero is going to wind up on Netflix. I checked on the other RCE titles produced since the deal was signed, and Dear Zindagi, Jab Harry Met Sejal, and Ittefaq all became available for streaming five months after their theatrical release. The only exception was Raees, which appeared on the service after four months. We can likely expect Zero to join Netflix at the end of May, maybe end of April. Badla is also an RCE production, so look for that in early July, possibly early June.

I’ve also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week. Newly added 2019 releases include:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of recent additions to the streaming catalog. Kangana Ranaut’s January theatrical release Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi now available in the original Hindi as well as Tamil and Telugu.

One strange bit of Amazon housekeeping is that Yash Raj Films added new versions of several movies that were already on Prime, and the old links no longer work at all. It’s not that the listing remains and says the movie isn’t available on Prime — you get a “Page Not Found” error when you follow the link. I updated my list with the new links I’ve found, but here they are just in case you’ve got the old links in your bookmarks (if you find any other YRF Amazon Prime links in my list that no longer work, please leave a comment and let me know):

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a new original Hindi series to binge this weekend: Delhi Crime, starring Shefali Shah, Adil Hussain, and Denzil Smith.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several recent additions to the catalog. Two 2018 Hindi films — the LGTBQ family drama Evening Shadows and Radhika Apte’s Bombairiya — are now available for streaming, as is 2017’s Bhasmasur. Other newly added 2018 releases include the Tamil movie Genius and the Tamil and Telugu versions of Sarkar.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 50 new additions in the last week. I’m really excited that the 2013 spy thriller D-Day is available for streaming again, because it hasn’t been for a couple of years. It has one of my all-time favorite song picturizations and great performances by Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, and Huma Qureshi. Prime also added a number of 2019 theatrical releases to its streaming catalog:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 50 Indian titles added in the last week, the most exciting of which is Zoya Akhtar’s new original drama series Made In Heaven (also available in 4K Ultra HD). Other recently added 2019 releases include:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several additions since the first of the month, including the original series Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians. Other newly added titles include the Tamil movie Sarvam Thaala Mayam and the Hindi films Contract, Dear Dad, I Am, and War Chhod Na Yaar, which is meh. If you’ve been meaning to watch Zila Ghaziabad on Netflix, don’t bother you have until March 15 to do so.

Today, Netflix announced a June 14 debut date for the dystopian Hindi series Leila, starring Huma Qureshi. The teaser has a definite Handmaid’s Tale vibe about it.
