‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar’ in global non-English Netflix Top 10

Hindi movie ‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar’ and Tamil film ‘Doctor’ were trending in the Top 10 global list of non-English films on Netflix between November 8 and 14. Both the films have been released in theaters as well.

According to Netflix, ‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar’ had 4.41 million hours of view time while ‘Doctor’ had 1.43 million hours of view time globally. The two films had substantial viewership from the USA, UK, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Malaysia, Maldives, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and the United Arab Emirates.

The long-distance relationship drama of a young Tamil couple, ‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar’ was 4th in the list while ‘Doctor’, a kidnap story told in a whacky way, was at the 10th spot.

Telugu flick ‘Maha Samudram’ also made it to the Indian-specific Top-10 list for the same period while Indians binge-watched American action comedy ‘Red Notice’, which topped the country-specific list for India.

Netflix recently unveiled a new Top-10 portal namely top10Netflix.com for showing off the viewership stats for its biggest draws. This site is an important step in its journey towards transparency around its numbers.

The lists are based on the number of hours that Netflix members around the world watched each title from Monday to Sunday of the previous week.

Netflix users on their home screen can see a row of ‘Top 10’ titles in their own region, which is all about pushing the user towards content the algorithm expects the viewer will like.
