I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. Last year’s action sequel Force 2 — starring John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha — is now available for streaming. It’s a fun followup to a really terrific thriller. It’s also the sixth 2016 release added to Netflix this month. Let’s hope Netflix’s renewed fondness for recent mainstream Bollywood fare continues.
I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three new additions to the catalog. The international drama The Lovers — which stars Josh Hartnett opposite Bipasha Basu, Abhay Deol, and several other Bollywood actors — is now available for streaming. Also new are a pair of documentaries from last year: The Karma Killings and Naga the Eternal Yogi. Though Netflix’s plot description for Naga the Eternal Yogi promises an examination of “the naked yoga gurus of India,” a recurring complaint in the Netflix member reviews is that there’s not enough nudity.
I also made a couple of additions to my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime. While I don’t think these titles are new, I just found two more movies available for free with Prime (thanks for the frustrating catalog organization and limited search capabilities, Amazon!): the 2007 English film Partition — starring Smallville‘s Kristen Kreuk, of all people — and the documentary Despite the Gods, a terrific chronicling of the drama behind the making of Hisss.
The first Bollywood movie to release in Chicago area theaters in 2017 is OK Jaanu, a remake of the 2015 Tamil hit OK Kanmani (available on Netflix). The Hindi remake hits theaters on January 13 and stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor.
