Streaming Video News: May 9, 2022

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with upcoming expiration dates for a bunch of films from Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment:

Other titles like Dear Zindagi have also expired in recent weeks, but I don’t think this necessarily means that Netflix’s deal with Red Chillies is done for good and that the films are headed to another streaming service. Chennai Express returned to Netflix in August 2021, and Yodha and two other titles returned in January of this year. This could just be a reset before the start of a new streaming contract. However, there’s no guarantee that the above titles will return to Netflix, or that they will return quickly if they do, so prioritize watching them if you’re so inclined.

Last week, Netflix added a pair of Hindi movies, including Radhe Shyam and the Original film Thar, which is really good. The Tamil action flick Beast — starring Vijay and Pooja Hegde — debuts on Netflix May 10 (in the afternoon in the US). And Netflix recently moved Masaba Masaba into the “Worth the Wait” row on their New & Popular page, joining She. No Season 2 release dates for either series yet, though.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of additions in the last week:

The Amazon Original anthology series Modern Love: Mumbai premieres in the afternoon on Thursday, May 12.

Finally, I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with the debut of the Hotstar Special Hindi series Home Shanti, which is also available in Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s additions of the North American Desi diaspora films Definition Please and Donkeyhead and yesterday’s streaming debut of the Telugu movie Shyam Singha Roy.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with this week’s premiere of the Hindi anthology series Unpaused: Naya Safar, starring Saqib Saleem. Other recently added 2021 releases include Jhimma (Marathi) and Shava Ni Girdhari Lal (Punjabi).

Lastly, I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with today’s OTT debut of the 2021 Telugu film Akhanda. The Hindi romance Tadap comes to Hulu on January 28.

The first new Hindi films of 2022 are out on streaming. 36 Farmhouse — starring Sanjay Mishra and Vijay Raaz — premiered on Zee5 today, while ShemarooMe released the drama Sorry Day last week.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films that have been added in the last few days, including today’s worldwide debut of the biopic Shakuntala Devi (also in 4K UHD), starring Vidya Balan. Other recently added 2020 releases include the Punjabi film Jaan To Pyara and the Malayalam movie Velikku Veluppankalam.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with yesterday’s release of the 2020 Telugu film Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya. The Netflix Original crime drama Raat Akeli Hai — starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte — debuts tomorrow.

Most of the movies in this list I posted earlier this week have been renewed and are not expiring from Netflix as planned. However, there are still seven Indian titles expiring from Netflix on August 1, with Chennai Express (which has good dance numbers) following on August 7. Scroll down to the “Expiring Soon” section of my Netflix page to see what’s on the way out.

Also releasing globally tomorrow on Hotstar is the Hindi comedy Lootcase, starring Kunal Khemu. You’ll need a subscription to watch it, but Dil Bechara is still available for free if you haven’t caught it yet.

Streaming Video News: April 1, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with loads of newly added Indian content. In addition to the Hindi film Paharganj, the 2020 Tamil releases Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal and Sethum Aayiram Pon are now available for streaming. A bunch of animated kids movies and series in Hindi were also added: Akbar Birbal, Bal Ganesh, Chhota Bheem and the Curse of Damyaan, Mighty Raju Rio Calling, and Punyakoti (Sanskrit). But the big news is the new batch of movies from the Dharma Productions catalog that are now available for streaming:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the Original Hindi crime series She, starring Aaditi Pohankar and Vijay Varma and written by Imtiaz Ali. The Bollywood drama Blood Money expires on March 27.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian and Pakistani films added in the last several days, including Varun Dhawan’s and Shraddha Kapoor’s January theatrical release Street Dancer 3D. It’s not as good as its predecessors in director Remo D’Souza’s dance trilogy, ABCD and ABCD 2 (both of which are on Netflix). Other recently added 2020 releases include the Punjabi film Gidarh Singhi and the Tamil movie Irumbu Manithan.

Streaming Video News: February 1, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a pair of returnees to start the month. Hum Aapka Hain Koun..! and Hum Saath-Saath Hain are available for streaming once more, although for some reason Netflix is calling Hum Saath-Saath HainTogether for Eternity” now. The 2019 Tamil film Thambi arrives on the service on February 3.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of new additions in the last week, including the 2019 remake Pati Patni Aur Woh, which looks gross. The 1978 original is also available on Prime, and maybe it’s better. Or you could just watch the newly added thriller Shanghai, which is awesome.

Other recently added 2019 releases include:

On January 30, we finally get Karan Johar’s makeover reality dating show What the Love!, which will either be great or disastrous. Celebrity guests include Huma Qureshi, Saif Ali Khan, Ali Fazal, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, and Sunny Leone.

Streaming Video News: December 6, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films and shows added in the last several days, including a new season of Inside Edge, available in Hindi with English subtitles (standard and 4K UHD) and English-dubbed (standard and 4K UHD). Recently added 2019 movies include Ardab Mutiyaran (Punjabi), Bharaate (Kannada), and the Bengali titles Dash Mash Dash Diner Galpo and Unish Bish.

In other Amazon Prime news, most of the Excel Entertainment back catalog is set to expire by the end of this month. Unlike the recent departures of movies from Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions, I’m not sure that this exodus is permanent. Excel has new seasons of Inside Edge and Mirzapur coming to Amazon in the next few months, and I haven’t found any news stories about them striking a deal with another streamer. Still, if you have any of their titles in your Watchlist, you might want to watch them in the next week. Excel’s fantastic debut production, Dil Chahta Hai, expires on November 27, followed by these other titles on November 28:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of the 2019 Telugu releases Dorasaani and Mallesham and the documentary Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator.
