Tag Archives: Tamil Movies on Amazon Prime

Streaming Video News: October 13, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 sports biopic Soorma to the streaming catalog.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several 2018 theatrical releases. The lone Hindi film among them is Fanney Khan, which was disappointing in spite of its stellar cast. The Marathi movies Me Yetoy…Chhota Pudhari and Take Care Good Night are now available for streaming, as are the Tamil and Telugu versions of the thriller U Turn. (If you want to watch the 2016 Kannada film of the same name on which the new versions are based, find it here on Netflix.)

There are still more titles on the way in October. Sanju is supposedly coming to Netflix this month, and Prime announced that it will add John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate on October 19.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two 2018 theatrical releases. The romantic drama Dhadak is now available for streaming, as is the Bengali movie Bidaay Byomkesh. I also found some previously unknown titles during my ongoing project of checking Amazon’s “Customers who watched this item also watched” entries for every film on this list (!). Here’s what I turned up:

One update to the Netflix list is the addition of the 2017 Punjabi movie The Black Prince.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with three new additions, including the Tamil films Ayya and Neengal Kettavai and the Gujarati movie Ahmedabad Palanpur Via Kadi Kalol, which becomes the third Gujarati film in the streaming catalog (along with Be.Shak and Percy). The new Amazon original reality dating show Hear Me Love Me — hosted by Shilpa Shetty — is apparently only available in India right now, not the United States.

In other Amazon news, the original series Inside Edge was nominated in the drama category for the International Emmy awards.

Just a reminder that AkiraKothanodi, and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story expire from Netflix on October 1. Have a great weekend!

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of recently added titles. In addition to a dozen older Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu titles, several 2018 releases are now available for streaming: Bus Stop (Marathi), Shaadi Teri Bajayenge Hum Band (Hindi), Uma (Bengali), and the Telugu films Goodachari and Srinavasa Kalyanam. The comedy special Improv All Stars: Game Night is also available, as is the English-language, Bollywood-inspired musical Basmati Blues, which is all kinds of problematic.

Amazon released the teaser for the new dating show Hear Me Love Me, hosted by Shilpa Shetty. It premieres September 28:

One bit of Netflix news is that, after a one-day absence, PK is available for streaming again.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with some titles added over the Labor Day holiday weekend. Besides the 2018 TV series Yeh Meri Family, all of them are Hindi films from the last year that didn’t release in US theaters, including director Q’s Garbage, the marital drama Love and Shukla, director Onir’s Kuchh Bheega Alfaaz, Nasseruddin Shah’s family flick Hope Aur Hum, and the romance Once Again, starring Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of last month’s Tamil theatrical release Ghajinikanth, along with a few other Marathi, Bengali, and Telugu titles. For everything else new on Prime and Netflix, check Instant Watcher.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with three movies from last year. The action spin-off Naam Shabana is now available for streaming, as are Qarib Qarib Singlle and the Telugu thriller Spyder. I found Naam Shabana kinda slow.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of titles set to expire in early September. Catch these while you can:

Streaming Video News: August 24, 2018

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because the horror series Ghoul is now available for streaming. The Netflix original series stars Radhika Apte and Manav Kaul, and it consists of three 45-minute episodes. On behalf of my fellow cowards, I appreciate that the whole series can be finished in one sitting with plenty of daylight hours to spare.

In other Netflix news, Chennai Express is set to expire on August 30, which is weird since it was just added on August 7. I’m not sure what’s up with that, but if it’s in your queue, you’d best watch it while you can in case it really disappears for good. Netflix also announced its acquisition of the movie Garbage by the director Q (Quashiq Mukherjee), with an anticipated premiere date later this year (possibly as early as September).

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with some newly added Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu films, joining Race 3 on the service for your weekend viewing pleasure. For everything else new on Prime — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with one new addition to the catalog. After a brief theatrical run in the spring, Beyond the Clouds is now available for streaming. I found the story compelling, and the camerawork in the opening sequence is fantastic. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

Some premiere dates I’m keeping an eye on in the next week include the Tamil film Kadaikutty Singam on August 13 and the music documentary Harmony with A.R. Rahman on August 15 over on Amazon Prime, followed by Bhavesh Joshi Superhero on August 16 on Netflix. There’s a chance the Amazon Prime dates are for India only, which is why I’ve not included them on my Amazon Prime streaming list. If they are worldwide release dates, I’ll post links to the movies as soon as they are available. Have a great weekend!

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix because Chennai Express is available for streaming again.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the additions of 2015’s Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein, the Telugu film Shankar Dada M.B.B.S., the Tamil movies Billa and Rowdy Kottai, and the Hindi comedy specials  Best of K Se Comedy and Best of Waiting Lounge.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with more new additions to the catalog. Besides the previously announced arrival of the Netflix original film Brij Mohan Amar Rahe!, 2 States and Baaghi showed up as well today — something of a surprise after yesterday’s massive infusion of new Bollywood titles into the catalog. 2 States is legitimately good, and Baaghi is unintentionally hilarious. It was one of the two movies I picked to discuss with Erin and Matt when they invited me to appear on the Bollywood Is For Lovers podcast.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with two new additions. Comedian Sorabh Pant’s second stand-up special — Make India Great Again — is now available for streaming, as is the 2017 Tamil movie Maayavan.
