I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of nineteen Indian and Desi films in the last three days, including four 2019 releases:

While there are no new additions to my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix, the original Hindi series Leila — a futuristic dystopian show starring Huma Qureshi, Siddharth, and Rahul Khanna — debuts June 14, and you can add it to your queue now by following this link. The series trailer is intriguing and grim.

I’m on vacation for the next couple of weeks, and I won’t be updating the site. I will still be on Twitter, however, so if anything cool becomes available for streaming, I’ll mention it there. You can follow me on Twitter at @kathyfgibson. Talk to you soon! — Kathy

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the premiere of the Hindi film Chopsticks, starring Karwaan‘s Mithila Parkar as a woman who enlists the help of a conman (Abhay Deol) to find her stolen car.

Junglee is now on Hotstar. I really enjoyed this family-friendly martial arts flick. It disappeared from theaters quickly this spring, so now’s a great time to catch up with it on streaming.

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).

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.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 Hindi indie Life of an Outcast. One of last night’s most inspiring Oscar wins went to the Netflix Original documentary short film Period. End of Sentence., about a group of women in Hapur, India working to improve local access to menstrual hygiene products. Check out the winners’ speech:

Streaming Video News: January 29, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian films — usually ten or so new titles every day. In addition to 2007’s Jab We Met, 2010’s Aisha, and the Amazon original Hindi series Four More Shots Please!, a lot of 2018 releases were added recently:

Streaming Video News: November 25, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with some HUGE news: the streaming service loses 25% of its Indian catalog in the next few days. 285 movies will expire between now and November 29. Most of the films on the way out are older Bengali, Tamil, and Hindi titles, including the whole NFDC catalog. Sadly, the purge wipes out Prime’s entire selection of Bhojpuri, Oriya, and Sanskrit movies.

One caveat is that Amazon’s expiration dates aren’t always as hard-and-fast as Netflix‘s expiration dates. It could be that Amazon’s dates simply indicate the end of existing contracts, with new contracts set to kick in the following day. But if any of the films below are in your Watchlist, better watch ’em while you can.

Update: It looks like this purge is really happening after all. I’m in the process of pulling the expired titles out of my main Prime list. The good news is that a lot of the older Hindi titles are still available on Eros Now (which you can try for free for 7 days through Amazon channels).

Here’s the full list of everything set to expire from Amazon Prime, organized first by date and then alphabetically:
