Streaming Video News: May 24, 2023

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s addition of two Hindi theatrical releases: Jimmy Shergill’s Operation Mayfair and the social issue drama Bheed. It’s worth noting that the version of Bheed — which deals with the turmoil of India’s COVID-19 lockdown — that Netflix carries is the censored version of the film, according to this report in The Hindu.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of Ajay Devgn’s March theatrical release Bholaa.

I’ll update my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu tomorrow when Season 3 of the Hindi series City of Dreams debuts.

Opening May 24: India’s Most Wanted and PM Narendra Modi

Two new Hindi films hit Chicago area theaters on May 24, 2019. The Arjun Kapoor spy thriller India’s Most Wanted gets the wider release of the two.

India’s Most Wanted opens Friday at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, AMC Niles 12 in Niles, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Regal Cantera in Warrenville, and AMC Naperville 16 in Naperville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 4 min.

Also new this week is the political biopic PM Narendra Modi, opening Friday at the South Barrington 24 and Cantera. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 10 min.

Other Indian movies playing in the Chicago area this weekend (all films have English subtitles):

Opening May 24: Ishkq in Paris

Preity Zinta stars in Ishkq in Paris, the first film from her production house, PZNZ Media.

Ishkq in Paris gets a very limited opening in the Chicago area, debuting on Friday, May 24, 2013, at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles. It has a listed runtime of just 1 hr. 36 min.

Aurangzeb gets a second week in area theaters, despite shockingly low first-weekend receipts of just $91,000 in North America, according to Bollywood Hungama. (My usual source for figures, Box Office Mojo, doesn’t list Aurangzeb‘s U.S. returns.) Aurangzeb carries over at the Golf Glen 5, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

The Golf Glen 5 is also holding over Go Goa Gone for a third week, with earnings of $270,139 in the U.S. so far. As noted in my latest Streaming Video News, Go Goa Gone becomes available for rent on Eros Now starting this Friday.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Mumbai Police (Malayalam) and the Tamil film Soodhu Kavvum.

Streaming Video News: May 21, 2013

This is pretty cool. Just two weeks after its theatrical release, the zombie comedy Go Goa Gone debuts on the streaming service Eros Now on Friday, May 24, 2013. While I didn’t love the movie, it is totally unlike anything else coming out of Bollywood right now. For a rental fee of just $1.99 (free with the monthly subscription), it’s worth checking out if you’re in the mood for some adult humor.

Update: Jab Tak Hai Jaan is now available on Netflix.
