Streaming Video News: May 14, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of the 2020 Hindi thriller Malang, starring Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Disha Patani.

I also updated list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of the new Amazon Original Hindi crime series Paatal Lok (also in 4K UHD), starring Jaideep Ahlawat.

Amazon made the big announcement that director Shoojit Sircar’s comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo — starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana — will not wait for theaters to reopen, but will instead debut worldwide on Amazon Prime on June 12.

If you’re interested in what the future may hold for theatrical releases, I recommend this episode of The Boxoffice Podcast. The discussion centers around American theaters and titles, but the same concerns apply to studios and cinemas globally.

Netflix released the trailer for its new dark comedy series Hasmukh, which stars Vir Das as a comic who resorts to murder to overcome his stage fright. Hasmukh debuts on Netflix April 17. It’s worth watching the trailer below just to see Manoj Pahwa’s ridiculous wig.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the streaming debut of Saaho. It’s not available in Hindi — that version is headed to Netflix in November — but it is available in Kannada, Malayalam (standard and 4K UHD), Tamil (standard and 4K UHD), and Telugu (standard and 4K UHD).* Dozens of other Indian movies have been added in the last week, including the new Vir Das travel series Jestination Unknown and the following 2019 releases:

Make sure to scroll down the Prime page past the new additions to the Expiring Soon section, because I found many more films set to leave Prime by the end of the month since posting this list of 60 or so expiring titles.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the Netflix original Hindi film Upstarts. I added the Australian series The Unlisted to the list as well. It’s about a pair of Desi twins, and the first episode takes place during their family’s Diwali celebrations. Timely!

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.
