Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

This is a corresponding thread to the Netflix thread started by Kalidas NKA HHM long back.
Some generic stuff - There are a lot of old hollywood movies and age old bollywood movies like Pyaasa on Prime.

Now, Pakistanis hate Indians, but still love Bollywood. Somene in Netflix hates gults more than that and has blocked all but 4 gult movies. There are more Pakistani movies than Gult movies in Netflix

Prime has a whole host of gult movies ranging from 2018 to 1957.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

Amar Akbar Anthony-

All three are played by Ravi Teja.
Only, at the end you realize that it is just one (like Sane Less and MSShanze)
Ravi Teja style action plus shot in new Gult land, i.e. Umrika (mostly in NY)
And the rating is 5/10 by msm critics makes it more whorth watching.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

Crime Busters


Veeru and Jai accidentally become cops. Lot of action and comedy follows and they ultimately bust the smugglers.
80s America plus bollywood style action. Am sure it was copied into a bollywood movie i missed.

There is also a bit of cleavage show towards the end.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

is it because you got India account that you see so many Gult/Indian films higlighted?

I am watching a series called Man in the high castle - interesting concept on fictional events of IF Germany and Japan had won the second world war...

It's ok, 3 seasons out, 4th season being made.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

The first show anyone in UK would mention if you have Prime is Grand Tour. Thats the reason I did not mention it first - I am different

Grand Tour is good entertainment, show about cars and what can be termed as antics of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. Definitely worth a watch. They used to do Top Gear on BBC before Clarkson was kicked out for assaulting a producer because he did not arrange food that Jeremy liked....

The India account was not working with limited range (only SLB movies). So reactivated the US account just before Black Friday. They extended my free trial to 2 months. Now continuing after that too.

Interestingly, checked the India account once and found that a lot of content was back.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

so you had to search for Telugu content? I don't imagine that will be highlighted on your home page in US...

there are quite a few Indian stand up comedy shows on Prime... Thugs of Hindostan is the latest movie on Prime - although I would strongly suggest avoid it...

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

Folks, Hotstar has a new New Years deal for US customers. Usually, their subscription cost is $99.99/Annum but they are giving a 40% discount thus reducing the cost to $60. They are also offering a $50 Amazon gift Card to new subscribers! This pushes the cost down to $10/Annum!! Its a great deal. I subscribed recently and Ive received the $50 Amazon Card via email.. Its legit.

Hotstar has good movies/program content and they have also tied up with Star to exclusively stream their channels ..

How do you stream hot star?
Is it a separate app? I see it as a channel in prime video. Will this deal work through that?

I am hardly finding anything on Hotstar to watch.. I took a subscription last year during England cricket series thinking 5 bucks a month is not bad, plus it has cricket.

All crap movies and stupid tv serials.. really, for my liking I hardly have 2-3 hours of stuff to watch in a month.

I had taken their subscription for Asia cup and had then cancelled it later.. Have taken it again since $10/yr is a great deal... I didn't find it crap at all.. For example they have movies like "Badhai Ho" and "Stree" which aren't available on other streaming channels. They have a decent enough repertoire of movies in various languages.. They have the Koffee episodes (as a matter of fact I saw that infamous Rahul and Pandya episode on Hotstar) They have the breakfast with Champion Series and now with exclusive streaming of Star Channels, all the Star Content like Star Sports (Match Point) is also available on Hotstar.


I just noticed that they stream Republic TV as well. They also have AsiaNet and TV9 (Telugu) News.

Re: Movies and Shows in Amazon Prime

^^ Acc to me most of the stuff on Hotstar is stuff I kinda stay away from.. especially the TV channels.. and KJo with his despicable guests.. that cricket breakfast stuff is also on youtube.

60 bucks wasted for me.. everything I can stream for free on youtube or on Netflix..

I have free sites for cricket, tennis, etc as well.. all at HD like quality.. but its not at click of a TV remote.. have to do a small amount of work.. but free like sunshine.

^^ Wait for a few weeks.. badhai ho will come on netflix, like every other movie.

May be for Gult stuff it makes sense.

I found it a very good deal for $10/annum.. wouldn't have subscribed for $60.. its really well worth it
