Streaming Video News: September 16, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with an October 2 release date for the Netflix Original movie Serious Men, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

I also updated my Upcoming Bollywood Release Dates page (where I keep track of Hotstar news) with a newly announced November 9 release date for Akshay Kumar’s Laxxmi Bomb. The announcement follows a Bollywood Hungama report yesterday that Hotstar planned to hold the release of its three remaining “Multiplex” titles — Laxxmi Bomb, Bhuj, and The Big Bull — until after the conclusion of the Indian Premier League cricket season in early November. While it’s common practice for major movies to avoid releasing theatrically during cricket tournaments, I suspect the fact that all three movies are still finishing filming and post-production influenced the decision as well.

So what does that mean for streaming releases in the near term? Netflix seems content to debut one or two new films or series per month. Amazon Prime quietly launched a few new Indian series in recent weeks but hasn’t made any major movie announcements. I suspect Laxxmi Bomb‘s release date indicates that things will be relatively quiet until around Diwali in mid-November. Last month, Bollywood Hungama scooped a potential Diwali release for Varun Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1 on Amazon Prime, so we’ll see if that comes true.

On a related note, even if theaters in India reopen next month, don’t expect any major flicks to be first out of the gate (especially after the tepid response to Tenet). Kiara Advani-starrer Indoo Ki Jawani purportedly wants to be first in theaters.

Finally, I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of older Hindi titles added in the last two days. Check ’em out:

Streaming Video News: February 15, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with nine newly added Indian films, including the 2018 Telugu movies Awe and Neevevaro. Kalki Koechlin’s 2017 Hindi release Candyflip is now available, as is Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Chameli. Ranvir Shorey fans can choose from Fatso, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, and Ugly Aur Pagli.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime today with seven new additions, which amounts to a slow day for Prime. Fifty-two Indian movies in total have been added in the four days since my last streaming video update, among them a new comedy special featuring Kanan Gill and Kenny Sebastian — Sketchy Behaviour — and Gully Boy: Live in Concert.

In other Prime news, the Hindi version of K.G.F: Chapter 1 will be available for streaming February 16.
