Vacation’s over! I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a bunch of new additions in the last two weeks.

Also new are the Netflix original series Leila and last year’s delighfully clever horror comedy Stree.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 50 Indian titles added in the last two weeks. 2019 releases added include the Amazon original series Mind the Malhotras, Anu Menon’s standup comedy special Wonder Menon, and the following films:

While there are no new additions to my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix, the original Hindi series Leila — a futuristic dystopian show starring Huma Qureshi, Siddharth, and Rahul Khanna — debuts June 14, and you can add it to your queue now by following this link. The series trailer is intriguing and grim.

I’m on vacation for the next couple of weeks, and I won’t be updating the site. I will still be on Twitter, however, so if anything cool becomes available for streaming, I’ll mention it there. You can follow me on Twitter at @kathyfgibson. Talk to you soon! — Kathy

Junglee is now on Hotstar. I really enjoyed this family-friendly martial arts flick. It disappeared from theaters quickly this spring, so now’s a great time to catch up with it on streaming.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 biographical drama Thackeray, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Thackeray is available in both Hindi and Marathi, but there is only one catalog entry for the film, so the language version must be selected under the “Episodes” tag. It’s weird.

Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai and Koi… Mil Gaya expire from Netflix on May 30.
