Streaming Video News: January 6, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix — which increased dramatically on December 31 with the addition of 60 Hindi films — with a January 30 release date for Karan Johar’s new series What the Love!. The official series description makes it sound like a show designed to appeal to Queer Eye fans: “With help from celebrity guests and a glam squad, filmmaker Karan Johar mentors six singletons through their personal struggles as they look for love.”

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than twenty Indian titles added in the last week or so, including the wacky killer animal movie Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans and the following 2019 releases:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week, including today’s blockbuster addition of the Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff action extravaganza War, one of my favorite movies of the year.

Other 2019 releases added in the last week include:

It looks like the Excel Entertainment back catalog really is leaving Prime for good on Thursday, November 28.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of two 2019 releases: the Rajeev Khandelwal-starrer Pranaam and the Telugu film Evvarikee Cheppoddu. Twenty Marathi titles are set to expire from Netflix on December 1, as are Shah Rukh Khan’s Deewana and the excellent drama Masaan. (Half Girlfriend is leaving as well, but you don’t want to watch it.) The expiring titles will be replaced on December 1 by seven Punjabi titles, which you can find listed in the “Coming Soon” section near the top of my Netflix page.

Happy Thanksgiving! — Kathy

Streaming Video News: November 1, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the worldwide premiere of the Hindi heist film Drive, starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Sushant Singh Rajput. Producer Karan Johar wasn’t confident enough to release this trash fire (my review’s in progress) into theaters, so he sent it to Netflix as part of his content creation deal with the streaming service. The 2019 Tamil film Mehandi Circus was also added to Netflix recently, even though it’s been available on Amazon Prime since May (disclaimer: all my Amazon links contain an affiliate code that may earn me a commission on purchases made via the links).

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of movies added in the last few days, including the following 2019 releases:

In other Amazon news, it looks like the Malayalam film Jallikattu joins Prime on November 3, even though it just released in North American theaters yesterday.

If you just can’t get enough Sushant Singh Rajput this weekend, Chhichhore is now available on Hotstar.

Streaming Video News: October 28, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian and Pakistani films added in the last week or so.

The Malayalam movie Ittymaani: Made in China is also now available, in both standard and 4K, as is the 4K Kannada version of Saaho. Other recently added 2019 releases include:

The Vishesh Films and Dharma Productions back catalogs have departed Prime, but some titles — including Kapoor & Sons — are still available for rent. Others like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… moved to Eros Now.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the interview special My Next Guest with David Letterman and Shah Rukh Khan. A handful of titles are set to expire in the first few days of November, including the Hindi films Mirror Game: Ab Khel Shuru and Sameer.

Streaming Video News: October 18, 2019

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!

Streaming Video News: July 30, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 release 7, which is available in both Tamil and Telugu. The Netflix original Hindi horror series Typewriter was also recently added, and the reporting about it here in the United States has been a little awkward.

Some Netflix expiration dates of note include Amu on August 1, Jab We Met on August 2, and Parched on August 5.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of new additions in the last week, notably the 2019 releases Kantharam (Malayalam) and Rustum (Kannada) and the restored version of the 1928 silent film Shiraz: A Romance of India.

So, what new movies can we hope to find on the streaming services in August? Badla is almost certain to hit Netflix on August 8, five months after its theatrical release. The second season of Sacred Games drops on August 15, with Article 15 joining Netflix on August 24. Over on Amazon Prime, Bollywood Buff expects Salman Khan’s Bharat to become available for streaming on August 2 followed by Student of the Year 2 on August 26.
