Streaming Video News: December 26, 2019

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the addition of a bunch of Indian films, including the November Hindi release Ujda Chaman.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a January 1, 2020, expiration date for twenty Indian films. Most of the expiring titles are Marathi movies, but Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath-Saath Hain, and Maine Pyar Kiya are on their way out as well.

The good news is that the number of Hindi films joining Netflix on December 31 has grown to 49. You can check out the full list of titles at my Netflix page, under the “Coming Soon” section. Happy holidays!

Opening November 1: Ujda Chaman

I don’t know why Ujda Chaman — the Hindi remake of the Kannada film Ondu Motteya Kathe (which is on Netflix) — is opening in Chicago area theaters on November 1, 2019. Housefull 4 ate Saand Ki Aankh‘s and Made in China‘s lunch last weekend. This isn’t going to go well.

Ujda Chaman opens Friday at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, and AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington. It has a listed runtime of 2 hours and heads to Amazon Prime when its theatrical run ends.

Housefull 4 continues to dominate the local market, carrying over at the River East 21, MovieMax, South Barrington 24, Regal Round Lake Beach in Round Lake Beach, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Regal Cantera in Warrenville, Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge, and AMC Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.

Saand Ki Aankh gets a second week at MovieMax, South Barrington 24, Woodridge 18, and Cantera, which is the only theater holding over War.

Made in China sticks around at MovieMax and the South Barrington 24.
