Streaming Video News: April 11, 2017

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three new additions to the catalog. 2012’s Hate Story — which is full of troubling examples of victim blaming — is now available for streaming, giving context to Hate Story 2 and Hate Story 3, which have been on Netflix for a while now. Likewise, Koi… Mil Gaya finally joins its sequels Krrish and Krrish 3 (there is no Krrish 2) on the streaming service. Netflix also added its first 2017 release: the Bengali movie Incomplete, starring Hate Story‘s Paoli Dam.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with eight new additions to the streaming catalog. (Well, seven if you discount Yamla Pagla Deewana, which was added to the site prematurely last week and pulled down after a day or two. But now it’s back!) The new additions include Aarakshan, Horror Story, Kaho Naa.. Pyaar Hai, Krrish, Krrish 3, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, and Rangrezz. I found Aarakshan disorganized, and Krrish 3 was just okay.

With more than thirty Indian titles added in the last month — including a bunch of mainstream Bollywood films like those added today — it sure looks like Netflix is feeling the heat from Amazon’s new Heera channel, which just added the Hindi version of The Ghazi Attack to its subscription service.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with lots of new additions to the catalog. The start of a new month brought the addition of a bunch of Indian movies and shows to the streaming service, including fiction films Elaan, Salaakhen, and the Marathi movie Killa. Several documentaries also joined the service: Among the Believers, Beyond All Boundaries, Celluloid Man, The Human Factor: The Untold Story of the Bombay Film Orchestras, and Mostly Sunny (which was okay). Lastly, a slew of Hindi TV shows are now available, too: Badalte Rishton Ki Dastaan, Khelti Hai Zindagi Aankh Micholi, Razia Sultan, and Satrangi.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with six new additions to the catalog. Older films like 2006’s Baabul and 2011’s Yamla Pagla Deewana (which was too self-referential) were added along with three movies from last year: Azhar, M.S. Dhoni — The Untold Story, and Akira, which released in US theaters as Naam Hai Akira. The Dhoni biopic was just okay, the Azhar biopic wasn’t great either, and Akira was just bad. The most intriguing new addition is the 2015 reality show The House That Made Me, in which actor Vinay Pathak interviews celebrities like Govinda, Remo D’Souza, and Irrfan Khan in their hometowns.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The 2012 thriller Blood Money — starring Kunal Khemu — is now available for streaming.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with an intriguing new addition. Naseeruddin Shah plays a pot farmer in 2016’s The Blueberry Hunt, now available for streaming free with a subscription to Amazon Prime. The service recently added the 2010 stand-up special Indian Comedy Tour as well.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one excellent new addition to the catalog. 2015’s Angry Indian Goddesses is now available for streaming. The cast is great, and the story takes some unexpected turns. I loved it. Thanks to Aroon Deep for sharing the news with me via Twitter!

I’ve updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. The award-winning 2015 Kannada film Thithi is now available for streaming. For everything else (Bollywood or not) new on Netflix, check Instant Watcher.

I made one other change to my Netflix page by adding each film’s language next to its release year for titles in the section “Other Indian and Pakistani Movies on Netflix.” For some reason, Netflix no longer lists a film’s language on its individual page, nor does it list whether subtitles are available or in what languages. Since nothing else changed regarding the design or structure of the individual movie pages, this seems unnecessarily reductive. I hope this is just a temporary glitch.
