Streaming Video News: November 9, 2023

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s world premiere of the Hindi war drama Pippa, starring Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal Thakur. Amazon also added the Tamil film Pulikkuthi Pandi today.

While Tiger 3 gets ready to hit theaters this weekend, its eventual streaming home is Amazon Prime, likely sometime in January.

After a forgettable theatrical run, the Abhishek Bachchan-Saiyami Kher cricket drama Ghoomer debuted today on Zee5.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with today’s debut of the Tamil series Label (available in Bengali, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, and Telugu as well). The first three episodes are streaming now, with new episodes coming every Friday.

Finally, I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the Tamil film Irugapatru. Netflix also released the official trailer for The Archies, which launches December 7. It looks really cute:

In Theaters November 9, 2012

With Bollywood heavyweights Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar dropping into theaters early next week, there are no new Hindi films opening in the Chicago area on Friday, November 9. This is likely your last chance to catch up on older releases before the two big boys wipe out all competitors.

Last weekend’s new release, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, performed poorly at the U.S. box office but gets a second week at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

For a sense of how LSTCK underperformed, take a look at these returns from last weekend (courtesy of Box Office Mojo):

Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana: $95,038 (first weekend)
Student of the Year: $49,885 (third weekend)
English Vinglish: $34,575 (fifth weekend)
Chakravyuh: $14,783 (second weekend)

English Vinglish and Student of the Year each earned upwards of $300,000 in their opening weekends and have continued to hold audiences. Chakravyuh opened with approximately the same tally as LSTCK the previous weekend (not including the approximately $15,000 it earned in the first two days of its mid-week opening), so LSTCK should perform similarly this weekend.

Last weekend’s other new release, Ata Pata Laapata, didn’t report its returns, which were surely worse than LSTCK‘s low figures. The fact that it departs theaters after one week seems to confirm that.

Hindi movies to catch while you can include Student of the Year at both the Golf Glen 5 and South Barrington 30, and English Vinglish and OMG Oh My God at the South Barrington 30.

Other Indian movies playing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Ayalum Njanum Thammil (Malayalam) and the Telugu films Damarukam and Dhenikaina Ready.
