As the curtain falls on 2023, Netflix emerges victorious as the fastest-growing market globally in India, a testament to the power of storytelling transcending borders. The year showcased a rich tapestry of narratives, from desi comedy in “Guns & Gulaabs” to the untold saga of “The Hunt For Veerappan.”

India reveled in a cinematic feast, embracing local gems like “Kaala Paani,” “Thunivu,” “Leo,” “Kushi,” and “Padmini.” The pan-Indian blockbuster “RRR” held its reign in the India Top 10 for 25 weeks, while “Jawan” swiftly claimed the title of the most-watched film just two weeks after its November 2 launch.

Netflix’s global hits, including “Extraction 2” and “Stranger Things S4,” resonated with Indian audiences, available in languages like Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. French, Japanese, and Korean stories also found a place in India’s top 10, underlining the nation’s appetite for diverse content.

The streaming giant became a home for talent, from iconic debuts like Kareena Kapoor Khan in “Jaane Jaan” to the discovery of Suvinder Vicky in “Kohrra.” Across genres, from thriller to comedy, Netflix celebrated diversity with 15 new acting talents joining projects like “Class” and “The Archies.”

The love for Indian stories echoed globally, with over 50 narratives reaching international audiences, consistently securing spots in the Global Top 10 for Non-English content. From the heist-thriller “Chor Nikal Ke Bhaaga” to the family mystery “Kathal,” Indian content found a global audience, with licensed films like “Shehzada” and “Jawan” making waves on international charts.

Netflix’s success extended beyond viewership to critical acclaim, with awards at the 95th Academy Awards for “The Elephant Whisperers” and international Emmy nominations for “Delhi Crime S2” and “Vir Das: Landing.” Partnerships with industry giants like Yash Raj Films, Hansal Mehta, and Neeraj Pandey, along with collaborations with first-time directors and seasoned creators, underscored Netflix’s commitment to fostering diverse storytelling.

The year 2023 celebrated not just the triumph of content but the collaborative spirit with creative partners. As the world eagerly anticipates 2024, Netflix promises a cinematic rollercoaster, continuing to push boundaries and captivate audiences with an unparalleled variety of films and series.
