What's New on Netflix in August, and Our Top 3 Picks
Highlights
  • Whiplash was nominated for Best Picture at the 2015 Oscars
  • Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down is Netflix's most expensive show
  • Release dates may vary for some entries

August seems to be the lightest month Netflix India has on offer since its launch this year, but there should still be enough to keep you occupied while it pours outside.
