Streaming Video News: September 4, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of the brand new Telugu movie V (available in Kannada, Malayalam, and Tamil as well). The new Malayalam film C U Soon was added earlier this week. A Spanish-dubbed version of the Rajkummar Rao-Nargis Fakhri movie 5 Weddings is also now available on Prime.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the South African Desi comedy sequel Kandasamys: The Wedding. Netflix just released the trailer for Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, which will be available for streaming on September 18:

Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb was rumored to debut on Hotstar on September 9, but it’s undergoing re-shoots, so no release is imminent. Instead, Hotstar will launch a second season of its original series Hostages on September 9.

In other news, Yash Raj Films plans to launch its own streaming service. This could potentially lead to YRF titles being removed from Amazon Prime, which currently holds the streaming rights to the studio’s catalog. The news report is light on details, so we’ll have to wait and see how YRF justifies asking consumers to subscribe to yet another streaming service.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Streaming Video News: June 18, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s premieres of the Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam versions of the new film Penguin, featuring Mahanati star Keerthy Suresh.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of the 2020 releases Chaman Bahar (Hindi) and Asura Guru (Tamil). The 2020 Malayalam film Kappela hits Netflix on Sunday, June 21.

Recently, Netflix adopted Amazon Prime’s strategy of making new Indian titles live on the service globally at midnight Indian Standard Time, which is late morning/early afternoon in the United States, depending on where you live. So, if an Indian film’s Netflix entry lists it as “coming Thursday,” it’s likely to mean that it will be available in the US on Thursday afternoon, and not Thursday at midnight.

Streaming Video News: May 28, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than a dozen Indian titles added in the last week, including today’s worldwide premiere of the Tamil film Ponmagal Vandhal, which opted to release straight to streaming rather than wait for theaters to reopen.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the new Netflix Original series Betaal, another Hindi horror series from the makers of Ghoul (which was decent). A trio of Bollywood movies from the 1970s — Bawarchi, Chupke Chupke, and Gol Maal — will expire from Netflix on May 31.
