New Movies on Amazon Prime Video

With Amazon Prime Video’s ever-changing catalogue, it’s challenging to keep up. And when you do notice an influx of new titles, it’s hard to pick which one to watch.

We have curated this list of new movies on Amazon Prime Video for you. So, if sorting your weekend watches is on your to-do list, that’s one thing you can cross out.

Influencer (2022)

While scrolling through aesthetically pleasing posts of travel influencers which showcase vistas of hills, waterfalls, and beaches, we often wonder if their lives are what they appear to be on social media. With this question in mind, the plot of Influencer unfolds.

Madison (Emily Tennant) is vacationing in Thailand and curating her social media posts in a way that screams vacation goals. Then she meets CW (Cassandra Naud), who shows her around Thailand but also robs and abandons her on a remote island.

Activating her inner Joe from the show You (2018), CW posts on Madison’s social media so that no one thinks she is missing. But what happens when Madison’s boyfriend shows up? This movie has great pacing for a thriller that could have just as easily dragged on if it chose to be preachy.

A well-executed mystery movie, Influencer is a chilling narrative you might not want to expose yourself to before a solo trip. Still, it’s a top movie on Amazon Prime Video you cannot miss out on.

Guthlee Ladoo (2023)

This is one of those new movies on Amazon Prime Video that are wholesome from start to end. Up there with other films based on accessibility to education, such as Super 30 (2019), or an example of a teacher-student bond that can change someone’s journey, like in Taare Zameen Par (2007), this movie deals with caste prejudice.

When Guthlee (Dhanay Sheth), a determined boy, wants to push past the caste discrimination and go to school, as juxtaposed by Ladoo (Heet Sharma), his best friend, who seems to have resigned to his fate of being a lower-class illiterate, we see an inspiring journey of overcoming oppressive social hierarchies in the form of a visual masterpiece.

Instead of going into macro narratives of caste discrimination, Guthlee Ladoo focuses on a concentrated journey of two individuals and their relationship with caste barriers.

It beautifully shows how support from a single person in power, like Harishankar (Sanjay Mishra), the principal in this movie, though cannot effect significant change, can mean the world to someone. just like Ram Shankar Nikumbh’s (Aamir Khan) support in Taare Zameen Par (2007) for Ishaan Awasthi (Darsheel Safary).

Where the Heck is My Period (2023) 

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a painful hormonal disorder that plagues millions of women, and yet, there’s no awareness. Even the medical community misunderstands it. This documentary addresses the hardships that come with PCOS by interviewing 11 Nigerian women living with PCOS and the societal discrimination that is an indirect consequence of PCOS symptoms.

The documentary skillfully brings together multiple perspectives. By talking about symptoms that you may not find many references for, it raises awareness and educates us through raw accounts that do not hold back about this taboo topic.

Anatomy of a Fall (2023)

This new movie on Amazon Prime Video is a French legal drama that has won multiple awards, including five nominations and one win for Best Original Screenplay at the 96th Oscars. The director, Justine Triet, is the first French woman to be nominated for the Best Picture category.

These accolades are justified because Anatomy of a Fall is thrilling.

Sandra Voyter (Sandra Hüller) is a novelist living with her husband (also a novelist at some point) Samuel (Samuel Theis) in the isolated mountains of Grenoble.

One day, their visually impaired son Daniel (Milo Machado-Graner) and his guide dog Snoop (who is a celebrity now!) find Samuel lying dead in the snow outside the attic window. The rest of the plot unfolds through courtroom hearings, where Sandra is accused of murder.

The defence throws around evidence of plagiarism, infidelity, suicide, depression, and so much more during the proceedings.

It should have been hard to keep up, but Sandra's smooth performance and the attention that her lawyer, Vincent (Swann Arlaud), commands make this movie captivating. There are no loose ends, and every aspect of the plot has been carefully executed to perfection.

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya (2024)

The concept is new, the soundtrack pops, and the impressive acting by the leads makes this a refreshing watch. Aryan (Shahid Kapoor) is a robotics engineer who works for a US-based company owned by Urmila (Dimple Kapadia), his maasi (aunt). When Aryan falls in love with SIFRA (Kriti Sanon), Urmila’s secretary, chaos occurs. As you might have guessed from the promos, SIFRA is a robot being trained to live among humans.

What occurs next is a mountain of chaos as we see the shortcomings of a robot trying to operate in a real-world environment, especially when Aryan tries to marry SIFRA after introducing her as a human to his family.

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya has humour, romance, and heartbreak. If you can ignore the scientific intricacies, you will love the light-hearted way in which the characters show the potential issues with robots coexisting with humans.
