Streaming Video News: October 30, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime because Akshay Kumar’s 2018 Independence Day release Gold is now available for streaming. It would’ve been more interesting with less Akshay. Prime also added a bunch of older Tamil and Telugu releases in the last few days, as well as my new obsession: the first season of Raja Aur Rancho, a 1996 Hindi TV show about a detective and his monkey sidekick. I’m three episodes in, and the show has already ripped off Mr. Big’s power ballad “To Be With You” for incidental music, and Raja just taught Rancho how to shoot a gun. I’m in heaven.

Prime Video India announced some 2018 releases poised to join the streaming service in the near future, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get them in the United States, too (but I can’t guarantee it). I’m keeping an eye out for the Kannada films Sankashta Kara Ganapathi and Katheyondu Shuruvagide on November 1, the Tamil thrillers Imaikkaa Nodigal on November 3 and NOTA on November 4, and the Amazon original series Mirzapur on November 16.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 Telugu film W/O Ram. The overly broad 2011 higher education drama Aarakshan expires on November 1.

Eros Now recently released Smoke, an original series starring Kalki Koechlin, Jim Sarbh, Mandira Bedi, and Gulshan Devaiah, among a host of other Bollywood regulars. All eleven episodes are available when you subscribe to Eros Now directly, but I can’t seem to find it on Eros Now’s Amazon channel. If you’re considering the Amazon option, it might be worth trying it for free for seven days first.

Streaming Video News: July 17, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with one new addition to the catalog and a couple of “Coming Soon” announcements. First, the Hindi-dubbed version of the 2008 Telugu movie Krishnarjuna is now available for streaming (with ads if you don’t have a Prime membership). More importantly, Rajinikanth’s Kaala comes to Prime in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam on July 27. The series Comicstaan announced the release dates for its remaining five episodes. Most intriguing of all is the teaser for the original series Mirzapur, produced by Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment (who also did the series Inside Edge for Amazon). There’s no date set for Mirzapur‘s debut, but here’s a little something to pique your interest:

One other bit of news is that Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is coming to Netflix on July 31, 2018. I really liked this movie, and I can’t wait for more people to get the chance to check it out.
