I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with seven new additions to the catalog, including two 2018 releases: the Malayalam film Eeda and the Tamil sequel Goli Soda 2. The other titles now available for streaming were all released in 2017: the Assamese film Maj Rati Keteki, starring Adil Hussain; the Mumbai-set documentary Jugaad; and three Bengali movies — Mayurakshi, Red Oleanders Raktokarobi, and Samantaral.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with more than a dozen new additions to the catalog. Ten of those films are Malayalam flicks from the last year or so, as well as the 2015 Hindi movie P Se PM Tak and the cartoon Mahabharat. I’m especially excited that Tikli and Laxmi Bomb is finally available for streaming. It had been on the festival circuit for the last year, and it’s really thought-provoking. I recommend it.
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with ten new Indian films. The 2018 Tamil theatrical release Thaanaa Serndha Koottam is now available for streaming, along with six Telugu movies, and the Bollywood flicks Amit Sahni Ki List, Main Aisa Hi Hoon, and 8×10 Tasveer (which is not very good).
I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two dozen additions to the streaming catalog. More than half of the new films are Malayalam movies from the last year or two, including Angamaly Diaries. Notable titles among the newly added Hindi films include SRK & Rani’s Chalte Chalte, the Govinda-Priyanka Chopra comedy Deewana Main Deewana, Akshay & Katrina’s Namastey London, Imtiaz Ali’s directorial debut Socha Na Tha, and the 2018 release Zoo, featuring Brahman Naman star Shashank Arora and directed by Haraamkhor‘s Shlok Sharma.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two new additions: the 2017 Tamil film Sakka Podu Podu Raja and Golmaal Again, which I think has been available on Prime in India for a while. Lucky us?
I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a few new additions to the catalog. The Malayalam film Aadu 2 and the Urdu movie Chalay Thay Saath are now available for streaming, as is the February Bollywood release Aiyaary. It’s not a great movie, but any Manoj Bajpayee is better than no Manoj Bajpayee.
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several 2018 releases, including Hate Story 4, the Telugu action drama Rangasthalam, the Bengali romcom Raja Rani Raji, and the Hindi kids film Chakarghinni, that I can’t seem to find any information about. I cleaned up the list a bit as well, removing titles that expired. Dil, Listen… Amaya, Mann, Shootout at Lokhandwala, and Shor in the City are all still available to watch with an Amazon Channels subscription to Eros Now (free 7-day trial), and Ocean of Pearls is available with a subscription to the Gaia channel (free 7-day trial).

The new additions include the English-language drama Mango Dreams, the documentary Martyrs of Marriage, seven Marathi films, four Malayalam movies, two Bengali flicks, and one other Tamil title besides OK Kanmani. Curiously, four of the Marathi films — Chal Dhar Pakad, Irada Pakka, Lalbaug Parel, and Ranbhool — are also currently available on Amazon Prime, though their addition to Netflix makes me wonder if that’s about to change. (For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.)
Speaking of Amazon Prime, while no new movies were officially added today, my digging unearthed three more Tamil films that hadn’t previously appeared in any of my searches: Ethir Neechal, Kuraoindrumillai, and Political Khiladi, the Hindi-dubbed version of Ko 2. I added them to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime.
Another bit of good news is that Amazon updated the interface of “Your Watchlist” to allow users to sort titles in their list alphabetically, A-Z or Z-A. The alphabetical sorting option replaces a “Featured” sorting method governed by an Amazon algorithm. (It wasn’t a function that I ever used, so I may be misremembering the exact name.) Both new options and the existing “Most Recent Addition” sort function work within consistent parameters — alphabetically and chronologically — making it much easier to find desired titles, rather than sorting via an algorithmic popularity contest, the rules of which only Amazon understands. It’s a welcome step toward a more consumer-friendly user interface.
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 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.
Earlier today, I wrote that the Hindi-dubbed versions of Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion were added to Netflix. Since then, the Malayalam-dubbed and Tamil versions of both movies have also been activated on the streaming service. I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix to include the new additions. Each version of each film has its own separate ID at Netflix. Here are the direct links:
- Baahubali: The Beginning (2015/Hindi-dubbed) — my review
- Baahubali: The Beginning (2015/Malayalam-dubbed) — my review
- Baahubali: The Beginning (2015/Tamil) — my review
- Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017/Hindi-dubbed) — ★★★★
- Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017/Malayalam-dubbed) — ★★★★
- Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017/Tamil) — ★★★★
I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several new additions to the catalog. The 2016 Malayalam film Munroe Island (aka Mundrothuruth) is now available for streaming, as are the Indian television shows Buddha Sutra, The Great Escape, Kissa Currency Ka, and Samagri, Sampatti Aur Sauda. Instant Watcher also has a link to the cooking show Ithihas Ki Thali Se, but the show isn’t available on Netflix just yet. Look for it to join the streaming catalog soon.
I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a bunch of new additions to the catalog. The Hindi films Halla Bol and Singh Saab the Great are now available for streaming. My brother was (un)lucky enough to watch Singh Saab the Great with me in the theater, and we agreed that it had some gloriously terrible moments. Also new to the streaming service is the Marathi movie Vitti Dandu and the Malayalam films Kanyaka Talkies, Ottakolam, The Painted House, and Shavam: The Corpse. Fair warning that Kal Ho Naa Ho expires from the service on July 22, 2017. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.
