Streaming Video News: June 26, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the new Netflix Original film Bulbbul, from Anushka Sharma’s production company Clean Slate Films. It’s really good, and I hope to have my review up soon. Other new additions this week include the 2020 Telugu movie Krishna and His Leela and the older Hindi releases Vivah and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (which is okay). Netflix also made changes to two films already on the service: Seven and Thackeray. Instead of one entry with a drop-down menu that allowed you to choose the language, Netflix made individual entries for each language version of the movie. Seven is available in Tamil and Telugu, and Thackeray is available in Hindi and Marathi.

Be sure to check out the Expiring Soon section of my Netflix page, as a bunch of movies and series are set to leave Netflix on July 1.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian and Pakistani titles added in the last week. Out of nowhere, Prime added the brand new Hindi series Rasbhari (also in 4K UHD), starring Swara Bhaskar. Recently added 2020 releases include Cheema Prema Madhyalo Bhama (Telugu), Janaki Nayakan (Malayalam), and Prawaas (Marathi). Amazon also moved the digital premiere of the Kannada film Law to July 17.

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 1, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the additions of the 2020 Tamil film Psycho and the new Netflix Original Hindi flick Mrs. Serial Killer, starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Manoj Bajpayee. The 2019 Hindi movie One Day: Justice Delivered hits Netflix on May 3.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with five Indian titles added since yesterday.

Bollywood Buff put together a helpful post listing all of the yet-to-be released Hindi films that have already inked streaming video deals — a move that opens the door for them to release straight to streaming if they decide not to wait for theaters to reopen. Akshay Kumar is reportedly considering releasing Laxmmi Bomb — which was set to debut in theaters on May 22 — on Hotstar once post-production is finished, possibly in June.

According to Bollywood Buff, a number of movies have already ruled out a straight-to-digital release, including Sooryavanshi, 83, Radhe, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, and Bunty Aur Babli 2. We’ll have to wait and see if all the other titles on the list are as resolute.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s additions of Amitabh Bachchan’s 2020 Marathi film AB Aani CD and Taapsee Pannu’s Hindi drama Thappad (also available in 4K UHD).

Thappad is the last major Hindi theatrical release of 2020 scheduled to join Amazon Prime for the foreseeable future. There’s a chance some smaller releases from this year may make their way to Prime, and some already completed pictures may skip theaters altogether and release straight to streaming. Of course Amazon has a bunch of its own Indian Originals in the works as well. But until theaters reopen and studios start releasing new movies into cinemas — which may depend not just on conditions in India but across the globe — we’re facing a bit of a new-content drought on Prime.

Another of the last remaining Hindi theatrical releases of 2020 — Baaghi 3 — is now streaming on Hotstar. The original Baaghi was bad in a fun way, but Baaghi 3 is just bad.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 Tamil film R.K.Nagar. I also added May 7 expiration dates for Andaz Apna Apna, Jalpari: The Desert Mermaid, and Action Replayy (which is not good).

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with dozens of Indian films added in the last week, including the 2020 Tamil releases God Father and Sandimuni and the Vicky Kaushal horror flick Bhoot: Part 1 — The Haunted Ship.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of Dulquer Salmaan’s 2020 Malayalam release Varane Avashyamund, the 2019 Tamil film Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, and the new stand-up comedy special Yours Sincerely, Kanan Gill. I also included Chris Hemsworth’s new action flick Extraction in the list because it features Bollywood actors Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi, and Priyanshu Painyuli.

More than 30 Indian movies will expire from Netflix on May 1, so catch these while you can:

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:
