ARRAY releasing are starting 2022 off with a bang with two new movies hitting Netflix in multiple regions on January 21st, 2022. The two new movies coming to Netflix includes Definition Please by Sujata Day and Donkeyhead by Agam Darshi.

Netflix saw the release of four movies in 2021 including In Our Mothers’ Garden, Cousins, Sankofa and most recently, Love and Fury.

The two new movies which are both from South Asian Women joining Netflix at the end of January include:
