Streaming Video News: February 26, 2021

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s world premiere of the thriller The Girl on the Train, based on the book by Paula Hawkins. The Hindi anthology film Zindagi in Short and the Telugu movie Red were also added to Netflix this week. A bunch of Indian titles are set to expire on March 1, so catch these while you can:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films added in the last week, including today’s addition of the 2021 Tamil neo-noir thriller Kabadadaari (also available in 4K UHD).

Hotstar launched a new drama series yesterday — 1962: The War in the Hills, starring Abhay Deol. If that doesn’t float your boat, Hotstar also recently released the horror series Live Telecast and the animated show The Legend of Hanuman. Still no sign of The Big Bull or Bhuj, unfortunately.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of the 2019 Hindi dark comedy Eeb Allay Ooo!. The 2020 Malayalam film Love debuts on Thursday, followed by the Netflix Original Telugu anthology Pitta Kathalu on Friday.

Yash Raj Films announced the theatrical release dates for five upcoming movies today:

YRF’s catalog streams on Amazon Prime in the United States, so the same should hold true for these releases. What will be interesting is how long of an exclusivity window YRF gives to theaters. Six weeks to two months was the standard pre-pandemic, but I won’t be surprised if the window is flexible based on box office returns, if not shortened outright. Keep in mind that, even if theaters are allowed to operate at 100% capacity in India, not all states are currently doing so. US theaters have occupancy limits (where they are operating at all), and other countries may have similar restrictions.

A smaller movie like Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar would be an interesting test case for a day-and-date digital rental via Amazon, even if only outside India. (I’m not holding out hope that’ll happen — just throwing that wish out into the world.) With so many people unable or unwilling to watch films in theaters, there is a need to make new titles available as widely as possible before people turn to pirated copies.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s debut of the semi-autobiographical Original series Masaba Masaba, starring Masaba Gupta and her mother, Neena.

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.
