Streaming Video News: August 27, 2021

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s additions of the 2021 Telugu movie Thimmarusu and the first season of the Hindi series Kota Factory (a series Netflix acquired in order to produce a second season). Other new additions include a bunch of returning titles from Balaji Motion Pictures, which had expired from Netflix on November 15, 2020:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the last week — mostly Tamil films released from 2016-2020.

Today, Hotstar launched the new 8-episode historical series The Empire, starring Kunal Kapoor:

Streaming Video News: June 16, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with nineteen new additions to the catalog. Along with the 2017 Tamil movie Kanavu Variyam (“Dream Factory“), the following Hindi films are all now available for streaming:

Confession: I’m not really jazzed about anything in this collection. Kidnap was just okay, and I hated Golmaal Returns so much that I named it my Worst Bollywood Movie of 2008. This seems like a lot of filler material meant to bulk up Netflix’s Indian catalog to compete with the huge collections of Eros Now and Amazon’s Heera channel.

Speaking of the Amazon channel, I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Heera with one new addition to its Hindi catalog. The 2016 anthology movie Shor Se Shuruaat features short films by rookie directors mentored by veterans like Zoya Akhtar and Imtiaz Ali.
