Streaming Video News: September 4, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of the brand new Telugu movie V (available in Kannada, Malayalam, and Tamil as well). The new Malayalam film C U Soon was added earlier this week. A Spanish-dubbed version of the Rajkummar Rao-Nargis Fakhri movie 5 Weddings is also now available on Prime.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the South African Desi comedy sequel Kandasamys: The Wedding. Netflix just released the trailer for Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, which will be available for streaming on September 18:

Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb was rumored to debut on Hotstar on September 9, but it’s undergoing re-shoots, so no release is imminent. Instead, Hotstar will launch a second season of its original series Hostages on September 9.

In other news, Yash Raj Films plans to launch its own streaming service. This could potentially lead to YRF titles being removed from Amazon Prime, which currently holds the streaming rights to the studio’s catalog. The news report is light on details, so we’ll have to wait and see how YRF justifies asking consumers to subscribe to yet another streaming service.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of the Netflix Original crime drama Class of ’83, starring Bobby Deol. Director Ashutosh Gowariker’s disappointing romantic comedy What’s Your Raashee? returned to the service after a month away.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian titles added in the week, including two Abhishek Bachchan films: Bluffmaster! (which is good) and Raavan (which is really good). Amazon announced a September 1 release date for the new Malayalam movie C U Soon and a September 5 release date for Nani’s new Telugu film V.

Streaming Video News: July 30, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films that have been added in the last few days, including today’s worldwide debut of the biopic Shakuntala Devi (also in 4K UHD), starring Vidya Balan. Other recently added 2020 releases include the Punjabi film Jaan To Pyara and the Malayalam movie Velikku Veluppankalam.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with yesterday’s release of the 2020 Telugu film Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya. The Netflix Original crime drama Raat Akeli Hai — starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte — debuts tomorrow.

Most of the movies in this list I posted earlier this week have been renewed and are not expiring from Netflix as planned. However, there are still seven Indian titles expiring from Netflix on August 1, with Chennai Express (which has good dance numbers) following on August 7. Scroll down to the “Expiring Soon” section of my Netflix page to see what’s on the way out.

Also releasing globally tomorrow on Hotstar is the Hindi comedy Lootcase, starring Kunal Khemu. You’ll need a subscription to watch it, but Dil Bechara is still available for free if you haven’t caught it yet.

Streaming Video News: June 26, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the new Netflix Original film Bulbbul, from Anushka Sharma’s production company Clean Slate Films. It’s really good, and I hope to have my review up soon. Other new additions this week include the 2020 Telugu movie Krishna and His Leela and the older Hindi releases Vivah and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (which is okay). Netflix also made changes to two films already on the service: Seven and Thackeray. Instead of one entry with a drop-down menu that allowed you to choose the language, Netflix made individual entries for each language version of the movie. Seven is available in Tamil and Telugu, and Thackeray is available in Hindi and Marathi.

Be sure to check out the Expiring Soon section of my Netflix page, as a bunch of movies and series are set to leave Netflix on July 1.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian and Pakistani titles added in the last week. Out of nowhere, Prime added the brand new Hindi series Rasbhari (also in 4K UHD), starring Swara Bhaskar. Recently added 2020 releases include Cheema Prema Madhyalo Bhama (Telugu), Janaki Nayakan (Malayalam), and Prawaas (Marathi). Amazon also moved the digital premiere of the Kannada film Law to July 17.

Streaming Video News: June 18, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s premieres of the Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam versions of the new film Penguin, featuring Mahanati star Keerthy Suresh.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of the 2020 releases Chaman Bahar (Hindi) and Asura Guru (Tamil). The 2020 Malayalam film Kappela hits Netflix on Sunday, June 21.

Recently, Netflix adopted Amazon Prime’s strategy of making new Indian titles live on the service globally at midnight Indian Standard Time, which is late morning/early afternoon in the United States, depending on where you live. So, if an Indian film’s Netflix entry lists it as “coming Thursday,” it’s likely to mean that it will be available in the US on Thursday afternoon, and not Thursday at midnight.
