Amazon Prime Video is the dark horse among streaming services in India. And it does not hurt that Amazon has quite a few original shows that are fantastic and are finally being considered in the Emmys (Marvelous Mrs Maisel won two Emmys last year). Amazon also seems serious about producing more original content. It bought the TV rights to JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings for an incredible 250 million dollars.
On Amazon Prime Day, Prime subscribers will not just get discounts on products on Amazon retail store, but Prime Video users will also get new movies, some of which have already debuted on the platform. Here is the full list:
102 Not Out: Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor play the role of father and son in this laugh-out-loud comedy. While the father, aged 102 years, is the very picture of cheerfulness, the son at 75 is already counting days to his death. 102 Not Out is already streaming on Prime Video.
Dunkirk: Christopher Nolan’s war epic can now be seen on the small screen. The experience is not that magnificent, as it is meant for large IMAX screens, it is still something special. Dunkirk is streaming on Prime Video.
