Bollywood on Hulu?
This might be old news, but I've had a houseguest since Monday and am way behind on the internet in general: looking to see if I missed a new episode of Bones last week, I noticed that Deewana is now available on hulu.com. So are Hera Pheri, Sarkar, Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke (which I've never even heard of), and Hulchul (a movie whose number one fan might well be me). Wow! Or do I mean "Huh?" It strikes me as a weird collection: one SRK before he was SRK, a wackadoodle comedy the average hulu viewer will probably be totally confused by, a Bachchan duo version of a story very familiar to the average hulu viewer, an Abhi-Aish (let's be honest, probaby more an Aish-Abhi), and a wackadoodle family feud. Three have Amrish Puri. I'm wildly curious about the selection criteria. Does anyone know the story beyond this?
What is interesting is that in the comments about the movies people comment on the odd selection.
I keep hoping they'll bring hulu to Canada, but alas, I just get to look at the site. How will I ever get to do my power Bhangra exercises now?
I agree that it's probably about rights. There's a pretty eclectic collection of movies on Hulu.
It's a conspiracy! To destroy Bollywood! *grumble grumble*
OK, I admit it. I love this movie. Beth, perhaps you could watch it some day when you're in a mood to appreciate absurdity and do a review?
We're releasing two more titles in June...be on the lookout!
