Streaming Video News: January 24, 2020

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with a bunch of Indian content added in the last week, including the debut of the Amazon Original Hindi series The Forgotten Army: Azaadi Ke Liye (also available in 4K UHD). Recently added 2019 releases include:

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with the addition of the 2019 Tamil road trip film K.D. (A) Karuppudurai. There are a few new releases lined up before the end of the month, including the stand-up special Vir Das for India on January 26. The Rajkummar Rao-Hema Malini romantic comedy Shimla Mirchi debuts on January 27, following a really brief theatrical run in India earlier this month. On January 30, we finally get Karan Johar’s makeover reality dating show What the Love!, which will either be great or disastrous. Celebrity guests include Huma Qureshi, Saif Ali Khan, Ali Fazal, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, and Sunny Leone.

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix — which increased dramatically on December 31 with the addition of 60 Hindi films — with a January 30 release date for Karan Johar’s new series What the Love!.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with more than twenty Indian titles added in the last week or so, including the wacky killer animal movie Roar: Tigers of the Sundarbans and the following 2019 releases:

I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with the today’s addition of Saif Ali Khan’s October release Laal Kaptaan.

I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with yesterday’s addition of the Hindi version of Saaho. (Saaho was already available on Amazon Prime in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu.) The Priyanka Chopra Jonas/Farhan Akhtar family drama The Sky Is Pink hits Netflix on December 11.

Over the weekend, the Twitter account Cinema Rare tweeted a thread of Netflix Originals from India coming to the service in the next year or so.
