Tag Archives: Kannada Movies on Netflix

Streaming Video News: March 1, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with 55 new additions to the catalog. Woo hoo! The crop of new films includes one documentary; titles in Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, and Urdu; plus more than forty Hindi films. Pardes, Laal Rang, and Taal all return to Netflix after a hiatus, while others — like Aitraaz, Bewafaa, and Dil Se — migrated from Amazon Prime.

Probably the flashiest of all the new additions is 2017’s Judwaa 2, subject of a recent episode of the Split Screen Podcast. Speaking of the Split Screen Podcast, host Shah Shahid and I spent this episode comparing the real-life crime dramas Talvar and Rahasya, which was also just added to Netflix today (joining Talvar).

Even with so many good titles now on Netflix — Shanghai, Company, and the underrated comedy The Shaukeens among them — the new addition I am most excited about is the batshit crazy 2003 crime caper Boom. Katrina Kaif’s film debut costars Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, a Bo Derek-obsessed Amitabh Bachchan, and Jackie Shroff, whose character has a secretary that lives under his desk. You have to see Boom to believe it, it’s just that insane.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several new additions to the catalog. The 2017 Kannada film Urvi is now available for streaming, as are the 1980s Hindi movies Alibaba Aur 40 Chor and Pyar Ke Do Pal. The most intriguing new addition is the Jennifer Winget-Kunal Kohli romance Phir Se, which was completed back in 2015. Kohli — who produced and directed Phir Se, his acting debut — was sued for copyright infringement by Daawat-e-Ishq writer Jyoti Kapoor, stalling the film’s initial release. After paying a settlement, Kohli finally elected to skip theaters and release the movie straight to Netflix for its worldwide debut. In case you need a refresher on Phir Se, here’s the trailer:

I also made some updates to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime, adding a bunch of newly discovered Bengali movies that start with the letter “C.” Now onto letter “D”! For everything else new on Netflix and Amazon Prime — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with eighteen new additions to the streaming catalog. Among the newly added titles are several small-budget films with intriguing actresses, including Richa Chadha in Tamanchey, Konkona Sen Sharma in Gour Hai Dastaan: The Freedom File, Tannishtha Chatterjee in Jal, Ira Dubey in Aisa Yeh Jahaan, and Swara Bhaskar in the horror flick Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai. There’s also the dumb Sanjay Dutt crime drama Zila Ghaziabad, as well as the documentary Why Knot. Here are all the other Indian films just added to Netflix (courtesy of Instant Watcher):

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon’s Heera channel with five additions to the streaming catalog. 2008’s Hari Puttar: A Comedy of Terrors is the most recent release of the bunch, with also includes Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke (2001), Chauraha (1994), and Gardish (1993). I am most excited for 1998’s Hatyara, in which Mithun Chakraborty plays a character who avenges the rape and murder of his loved ones by villains played by Mukesh Rishi and Rami Reddy. If that sounds an awful lot like the plot of my beloved Gunda, get this — Hatyara released in theaters in 1998 just three months before Gunda!

I also made a couple of recent updates to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime. Admittedly, they aren’t “Bollywood” movies by the strict definition, but rather international productions about desis abroad that might appeal to Bollywood fans, including the American film Quarter Life Crisis (starring Maulik Pancholy and Lisa Ray) and the 2017 Italian movie Babylon Sisters, about an Indian family that opens a dance studio. The 2016 Malayalam film Girls is also now available for streaming.

Finally, my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix is updated to include several new Indian movies: Chocolate (Bengali), Rama Rama Re… (Kannada), Superstar (Gujarati), and the Malayalam films An Off-Day Game and Six Feet High.


Streaming Video News: March 9, 2017

I’ve updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The award-winning 2015 Kannada film Thithi is now available for streaming. For everything else (Bollywood or not) new on Netflix, check Instant Watcher.

I made one other change to my Netflix page by adding each film’s language next to its release year for titles in the section “Other Indian and Pakistani Movies on Netflix.” For some reason, Netflix no longer lists a film’s language on its individual page, nor does it list whether subtitles are available or in what languages. Since nothing else changed regarding the design or structure of the individual movie pages, this seems unnecessarily reductive. I hope this is just a temporary glitch.
