The Netflix Original series She returned for a second season, headlining a month chock full of crime thrillers. Several of the Indian theatrical releases added this month have multiple language options — a trend that is likely to continue. Netflix sometimes gives each language version its own separate catalog entry, but more often audio options for a given title can be selected from the same menu (represented by a speech bubble icon) where subtitle options are found.
Here are all of the new Indian movies and series added to Netflix in June 2022.
