New Indian Movies on Netflix: August 2023

Rangabali (2023)

Adipurush (2023)

Language: Hindi
Runtime: 177 Minutes

Cast: Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan
Genre: Epic, Mythological | Added to Netflix: August 10

Adipurush tells a part of the ancient Indian epic the Ramayana, specifically the section in which exiled prince Raghava must rescue his kidnapped wife Janaki from the clutches of the demon king Lankesh. Though it’s one of the most expensive Indian films of all time, CGI-heavy Adipurush doesn’t look as good as some of the movies that inspired it (chiefly Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes). If you’re in the mood for an Indian epic, watch both Baahubali movies instead. Adipurush was shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu, but only the Hindi version is available on Netflix.
