Streaming Video News: March 3, 2021

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s big announcement of more than 40 new Indian movies, TV series, and specials that Netflix plans to release in 2021. Many of these titles were previously announced — I wrote about a number of them for my 2021 Netflix preview for What’s On Netflix — but some are brand new. I’ll go into detail about each of the different categories, but first check out this general teaser video Netflix India released:

First up is movies. Today’s announcement includes 13 titles. Netflix had already announced a March 26 premiere date for Pagglait and released teaser videos for Dhamaka and Jagame Thandhiram. The Karan Johar-produced anthology film which had been called The Other is renamed Ajeeb Daastaans. Three films that I previewed in my piece for What’s On Netflix mentioned above were not included in today’s announcement: Cobalt Blue, Desert Dolphin, and Freedom. Here are all the movies included in today’s press release (Hindi-language, unless otherwise specified) with links to their Netflix entries where available, followed by another video specifically focused on Original films:

The bulk of today’s announcement was made up of fiction TV series, including 9 brand new shows and new seasons of 6 returning series. Bombay Begums already has a March 8 premiere date. The series starring Madhuri Dixit Nene that was rumored to be called Actress is officially titled Finding Anamika. Baahubali: Before the Beginning was conspicuously absent from today’s announcement, as were updates on new seasons for Hashmukh and Selection Day. Here are all of the TV series mentioned in the press release, followed by a video featuring highlights from those series:

Finally, Netflix announced 13 non-fiction movies, series, and stand-up comedy specials. No word on a second season of Indian Matchmaking, but The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives and The Big Day are both returning. Here are the Unscripted Originals coming to Netflix in 2021.

I’ll update my Netflix page as soon as release dates for these titles are announced. Get those watchlists ready, people!

Streaming Video News: March 20, 2020

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.
