We all know that Netflix is the go-to place for entertainment. However, there aren’t many Kannada movies on Netflix as compared to other languages. We hope that Netflix expands its Kannada content on its platform.
At present, there are only six Kannada movies on Netflix. In addition to this, there is a documentary series in Kannada and English language.
What happens when a criminal commits a crime? What is the Bengaluru police department’s process in capturing the criminal? Bengaluru police on the job offer a rare glimpse into these questions and more in this gripping series about four major crime investigations.
The documentary series Crime Stories: India Detectives is streaming now. Watch it!
Here is the trailer!
Oh, wait, you have a Netflix subscription of your own??

On the other side, the last decade has seen an explosion of creativity in Kannada cinema. The storylines appear to be unique and have found an audience of their own. The Kannada industry has churned out films like Ulidavaru Kandanthe, Avane Srimanaryana and the recent KGF: Chapter 1 (the most expensive Kannada film to be made). Here are content-oriented, unusual and simple storylines that you should watch.

Interested in entrepreneurship? This movie is a must-watch. It would be best if you streamed it.
There are many shows/movies about this topic in other languages. But in recent times, we have had it in Kannada too. The movie explores the life of a young entrepreneur in the startup capital of India – Namma Bengaluru. Many of us can relate to this movie as it shows the fun-filled days of our life – the college days. Also, it perfectly captures how the days change your thoughts and point of view with the bigger responsibility calls.
The OTT has come up with Netflix South exclusively for the south languages, and we should wait and watch. Hope we have some Kannada original shows/series and Kannada movies on Netflix.
