I updated my list of Bollywood movies on Amazon Prime with today’s addition of the theatrical release Madgaon Express. This follows last week’s addition of Sidharth Malhotra’s Yodha.
I also updated my list of Bollywood movies on Netflix with a June 7 expiration date for the horror comedy Stree. It’s definitely worth prioritizing.
You’ve probably noticed that it’s been quiet on the streaming services as well as in theaters. We’re in the middle of cricket season, a time when producers and distributors traditionally pull back on releases while audience attention is elsewhere. The Indian Premier League is happening this month followed by the Cricket World Cup all throughout June.
So what releases are on the horizon? The only Indian Original streaming title with an announced release date is Season 3 of Panchayat, which comes to Amazon Prime on May 28:

We can predict some likely streaming debut dates for theatrical releases, which typically wind up on OTT 8 weeks after hitting theaters. All these dates are all approximate, and the streaming service may be subject to change:
May 24 – Crew on NetflixJune 5 – Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (I’ve seen both Netflix and Prime rumored)June 5 – Maidaan on Amazon PrimeJune 14 – Do Aur Do Pyaar on HuluJune 14 – Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2 on Netflix
Other smaller or India-only theatrical releases may also get global streaming distribution, but these are the biggest titles we’re waiting for.
In the meantime, this is a great time to catch up on some of the 2024 releases you might have missed. My 5 favorite films of the year so far are:

Amar Singh Chamkila (on Netflix)
Crakk (on Hulu)
Ae Watan Mere Watan (on Amazon Prime)
Bhakshak (on Netflix)
Shaitaan (on Netflix)
