Tag Archives: Telugu Movies on Netflix

Streaming Video News: March 15, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several recent additions to the catalog. Two 2018 Hindi films — the LGTBQ family drama Evening Shadows and Radhika Apte’s Bombairiya — are now available for streaming, as is 2017’s Bhasmasur. Other newly added 2018 releases include the Tamil movie Genius and the Tamil and Telugu versions of Sarkar.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than 50 new additions in the last week. I’m really excited that the 2013 spy thriller D-Day is available for streaming again, because it hasn’t been for a couple of years. It has one of my all-time favorite song picturizations and great performances by Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, and Huma Qureshi. Prime also added a number of 2019 theatrical releases to its streaming catalog:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with several new additions to the catalog. Recently added 2018 theatrical releases include Adhugo (Telugu), Echcharikkai (Tamil), Next Enti? (Telugu), Pari (Urdu), and Saif Ali Khan’s corporate thriller Baazaar.

In other cool Netflix news, they reinstated language as a genre category. Baazaar is now filed under both Indian Movies and Hindi-Language Movies, Pari is under Pakistani Movies and Urdu-Language Movies, etc. (This led me to discover that I failed to add Ali Zafar’s 2018 release Teefa in Trouble to the list last month. Eek!) Note that the new categories only apply to languages in which Netflix has a significant number of titles. For example, Assamese and Manipuri movies are still filed under the general Indian Movies category, and there’s nothing in the film’s description about the dialogue language. You have to actually play the movie and check the audio options to verify. There’s also still no option to sort titles by most recent additions, but that’s what I’m here for.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with several dozen additions — mostly older Hindi and Tamil titles returning to the streaming catalog after having disappeared a few months ago, but some Telugu and Gujarati titles as well.

Update: Tumbbad is on Amazon Prime!!!

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime because Akshay Kumar’s 2018 Independence Day release Gold is now available for streaming. It would’ve been more interesting with less Akshay. Prime also added a bunch of older Tamil and Telugu releases in the last few days, as well as my new obsession: the first season of Raja Aur Rancho, a 1996 Hindi TV show about a detective and his monkey sidekick. I’m three episodes in, and the show has already ripped off Mr. Big’s power ballad “To Be With You” for incidental music, and Raja just taught Rancho how to shoot a gun. I’m in heaven.

Prime Video India announced some 2018 releases poised to join the streaming service in the near future, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get them in the United States, too (but I can’t guarantee it). I’m keeping an eye out for the Kannada films Sankashta Kara Ganapathi and Katheyondu Shuruvagide on November 1, the Tamil thrillers Imaikkaa Nodigal on November 3 and NOTA on November 4, and the Amazon original series Mirzapur on November 16.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2018 Telugu film W/O Ram. The overly broad 2011 higher education drama Aarakshan expires on November 1.

Eros Now recently released Smoke, an original series starring Kalki Koechlin, Jim Sarbh, Mandira Bedi, and Gulshan Devaiah, among a host of other Bollywood regulars. All eleven episodes are available when you subscribe to Eros Now directly, but I can’t seem to find it on Eros Now’s Amazon channel. If you’re considering the Amazon option, it might be worth trying it for free for seven days first.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with two new additions to the catalog. The 2013 Telugu movie Naa Bangaaru Talli is now available for streaming, which is significant because Netflix only has three other Telugu films (plus the Hindi-dubbed version of Eega). Also new is the 2018 Tamil film Mr. Chandramouli. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of John Abraham’s August action flick Satyameva Jayate.

A gander through my massive Amazon Watchlist revealed that more than 25% of Prime’s Bengali catalog will expire by October 25. There are a handful of Hindi movies expiring, too, and the some titles depart the service as early as tomorrow. It’s not unusual for movies to disappear from Prime only to return the next day after Amazon negotiates a new contract with the distributors, but if one of the titles on the chopping block is in your Watchlist, best get to it toot sweet, just in case. For the full list of 44 movies on their way out, check the “Expiring Soon” section of my Amazon page, right underneath the “Newly Added” section.

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:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with an interesting assortment of new additions to the catalog. The insightful drama Waiting is now available for streaming, as are Gurgaon and the disappointing 2017 romance Running Shaadi. Also new is Onaatah, the first Netflix’s first Khasi-language movie. Here are today’s other newly added flicks:

Perhaps the most compelling additions are four TV shows that just started airing on the cable channel Discovery Jeet within the last few months: Anjaan: Special Crimes Unit, Khan No. 1, Mere Papa Hero Hiralal, and Swami Baba Ramdev: The Untold Story. It’s pretty cool to be able to catch up on episodes so soon after their Indian debuts. For everything else new on Netflix — Bollywood or not — check Instant Watcher.
