All India Rank - New On Netflix April

Picture: Karmic Films

What a month for high-quality Hindi movies on Netflix! In addition to the film festival favorite Laapataa Ladies, Netflix released one of its finest Indian Original movies to date: the musical biopic Amar Singh Chamkila. Here are all of the new Indian movies added to Netflix in April 2024.

If you missed our roundup for last month – you missed nine new movies and two new series. We also published our HUGE Indian slate preview for the next year, too.

Titles marked with an N are Netflix Originals.

Amar Singh Chamkila (2024) N

Languages: Hindi, English, Polish, Spanish (Latin America), Tamil, & Telugu
Runtime: 145 Minutes
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Cast: Diljit Dosanjh, Parineeti Chopra, Anurag Arora
Genre: Biographical, Musical | Added to Netflix: April 12

Amar Singh Chamkila is easily one of Netflix’s best Indian Original movies. In Punjab in the 1980s, no singer was more popular than Amar Singh Chamkila (Diljit Dosanjh). He and his wife Amarjot Kaur (Parineeti Chopra) sang catchy duets with naughty themes that drove audiences into a frenzy. Conservative groups branded Chamkila’s music as offensive, and the couple was assassinated in 1988. That’s where the film by lauded director Imtiaz Ali begins. Ali’s movie features new music written by Oscar-winner A. R. Rahman and performed by Dosanjh and Chopra. Ali weaves performance footage and archival materials of Chamkila and Kaur into a story that’s told in a unique and compelling fashion, making it one of the director’s most accomplished works. Additional language options — including a Hindi audio description track — are available in the film’s audio menu.

Much like 12th Fail — which was added to Netflix in MarchAll India Rank is another film about a teenager preparing to take a competitive exam in the 1990s. This time, the test is the rigorous admission exam for the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology.

All India Rank is the feature directorial debut of writer and lyricist Varun Grover.

Article 370 (2024)
