Netflix | Amazon Prime Video Streaming Guide Bollywood movies of 2019

The Bollywood movies of 2019 like Gully Boy, War, Bala, Article 15, The Sky Is Pink, Sonchiriya and more, which released in 2019 and are now available to stream online at Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Youtube and Eros.

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Jisshu Sengupta, Ankita Lokhande

Kangana Ranaut’s fierce avatar as Rani Laxmibai in the biopic Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi got mixed reviews from film critics. Kangana took the director’s chair for the movie along with Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and delivered an impressive performance. Just don’t get into the film expecting correct portrayal of historical facts.

Gully Boy

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz, Vijay Varma, Amruta Subhash

One of the best and my favourite too, Gully Boy was inspired by the life of rappers Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy. Not just Ranveer or Alia, every actor in the Zoya Akhtar directorial has done a commendable job. It has been selected as India’s official entry in the International Feature Film category at the 92nd Academy Awards.

Total Dhamaal

Streaming On: Hotstar

Cast: Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffery, Sanjai Mishra

Even if you are looking for just some good dose of humour and not content-driven cinema, in my opinion, you can skip watching Total Dhamaal. I am sure Hindi cinema has better slapstick comedies. Still, if you are a movie buff and can’t miss any release of the year, watch it on Hotstar.

Luka Chuppi

Streaming On: Netflix

Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Kriti Sanon, Aparshakti Khurrana, Vinay Pathak, Pankaj Tripathi

Writer Rohan Shankar took up an important topic of moral policing and young couples being judged for live-in relationships, but its execution by director Laxman Utekar made Luka Chuppi a tough watch. The good thing is you have got a forward button and you can comfortably skip the first half and watch the second half when finally some action takes place in the movie. Don’t worry about the first half, it’s only about a young boy (Kartik Aaryan) and a young girl (Kriti Sanon) who meet for an arranged marriage setup and decide to live-in to figure out if they are compatible or not.

Badla

Streaming On: Netflix, YouTube

Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu

Badla is an official adaptation of the 2017 Spanish film The Invisible Guest. If you haven’t watched The Invisible Guest, also available on Netflix, you are bound to like this Sujoy Ghosh directorial. But if you have watched it, expect some twists and surprises. Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu are at their best in the movie.

Photograph

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanya Malhotra

Set in Mumbai, Photograph has Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the role of a photographer who takes photographs of tourists at the Gateway Of India. One day he meets a girl Miloni (Sanya Malhotra) and introduces her to his grandmother, who is desperate to get him married, as his girlfriend. Eventually, both of them become fond of each other. But is it love? Or, both of them just decide to help each other? Watch Photograph on Amazon Prime Video to find out.

Kesari

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Akshay Kumar, Parineeti Chopra

Akshay Kumar’s Kesari narrated the lesser-known tale of Battle of Saragarhi when 21 Sikh soldiers fought Afghan invaders in September 1897. The official description of the film read, “Kesari is an unbelievable true story based on the Battle of Saragarhi, 1891. Touted as one of the bravest battle ever fought, 21 courageous Sikhs countered 10,000 invaders. These saffron-clad warriors fought valiantly against all odds and changed the meaning of bravery.” The film, according to the makers, celebrates the spirit of bravery and sacrifice.

Kalank

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Kunal Kemmu

Kalank was Karan Johar and his father Yash Johar’s dream project. The film, set in the 40s, was about turbulent relationships and eternal love. But when it was released in theaters, it failed to find love from the audience and film critics. You can watch it for the extravagant sets and beautiful costumes. There’s nothing more than this to the movie.

Student Of The Year 2

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria

Are you looking for a film that can give you a little of both Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? Stream Punit Malhotra directorial Student Of The Year 2.

Bharat

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani

Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is a remake of the South Korean film Ode To My Father. I am still wondering why the film was made and if it was made, why was it released. While I find answers to these questions, you can find it for yourself as Bharat is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video. It is about a man’s search for his father and sister who were separated from him during the India-Pakistan Partition in 1947.

Kabir Singh

Streaming On: Netflix

Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani

The Hindi remake of Telugu superhit Arjun Reddy, Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani became a national topic of discussion. The film’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga was pulled up for his approach towards violence against women. Film critics were impressed with Shahid’s acting in the film, but they called out the misogyny and toxic masculinity in it.

Article 15

Streaming On: Netflix

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub

article 15, caste in hindi cinema, Anubhav Sinha Article 15, indian express, indian express eye

 Ayushmann Khurrana in Article 15.

The poster boy of small-town movies, Ayushmann Khurrana exercised his acting chops in Anubhav Sinha’s hard-hitting social drama. The film dealt with the issue of casteism which is still prevalent in several states of India. In her review, Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Article 15 may have an unsatisfactory element or two, but as a film, it rushes in to reclaim the grounds we have ceded. It is what is needed– a clarion call, a bugle, a calling-out– all rolled in one.”

Batla House

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: John Abraham, Mrunal Thakur, Ravi Kishan, Rajesh Sharma

Nikhil Advani directorial took inspiration from the events of the Batla House encounter case that took place in 2008.

Saaho

Streaming On: Netflix

Cast: Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mahesh Manjrekar, Chunky Panday

It might be a box office hit, but Prabhas’ Saaho failed to leave an impact on cinephiles. Director Sujeeth forced the element of romance in what could have been a nice action drama with some superbly choreographed action sequences. So, if you are a fan of interesting action sequences, you can just scroll and watch those since the screenplay of the film offers nothing.

Section 375

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Akshaye Khanna, Richa Chadda, Rahul Bhat, Sandhya Mridul, Meera Chopra

The courtroom drama tried to raise the issue of women misusing the law which has been made to protect them. The film’s title is taken from Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code under which a woman can file a complaint against a man if he has sexual intercourse with her without consent. If you like watching heated legal proceedings in Bollywood style, then Section 375 makes for a good watch.

War

Streaming On: Amazon Prime Video

Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff

Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan share screen space in Siddharth Anand’s action drama War. In the movie, the two stars are pitted against each other. While Hrithik’s Kabir has gone rogue, the government has employed his protege Khalid (Tiger) to neutralize him. Apart from Shroff and Roshan, the film also stars Vaani Kapoor and Ashutosh Rana in supporting roles.

The Sky Is Pink

Streaming On: Netflix

Cast: Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim, Rohit Saraf

Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf starrer The Sky Is Pink is the story of 14-year-old girl Aisha Chaudhary who dies due to pulmonary fibrosis. Shonali Bose has helmed the film and PeeCee has delivered a phenomenal performance in the movie. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film two stars and felt it was “both constructed and sentimental”
