Streaming Video News: August 4, 2023

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with today’s premiere of the docuseries The Hunt for Veerappan and yesterday’s addition of the Telugu film Rangabali. There’s no sign of Jimmy Shergill’s new series Choona, which was supposed to release on August 3. I suspect that’s to leave more space before the launch of Guns & Gulaabs on August 18. Netflix describes both shows as “Offbeat, Exciting” in their catalog entries, and there’s a good chance Choona could be eclipsed by the higher profile new show from Raj & DK.

Netflix released a video announcing a September 1 release date for the new Excel Entertainment movie Friday Night Plan, about two teenage brothers who make big plans when their mom (Juhi Chawla) leaves them home alone for the night.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Hulu with the premiere of the new Telugu series Dayaa (also available in Bengali, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, and Tamil).

Nothing new on Amazon Prime in the US this week, but journalist Suchin Mehrotra posted a really good interview with Amazon’s Head of Indian Originals, Aparna Purohit, on the latest episode of The Streaming Show podcast.
