Opening October 26: RA.One

As far as Bollywood movies are concerned, there’s only one game in town this week: RA.One. Shahrukh Khan’s 3D superhero epic — the most expensive Indian movie yet, with a price tag of nearly US$40 million — opens in the Chicago area on October 26, 2011.

RA.One opens on Wednesday in both 2D and 3D at the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. If you just can’t wait to see it, the South Barrington 30 is holding a midnight showing late Tuesday night.

The Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles doesn’t specify if it will carry the 3D version of RA.One, but it will be showing the film in its original Hindi, plus versions dubbed into Tamil and Telugu, all starting on Wednesday as well. The AMC Ford City 14 and AMC Loews 600 North Michigan 9 — both in Chicago — are carrying the 2D version of RA.One, which has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 36 min.

If you’re not interested in RA.One, the Golf Glen 5 is also carrying, as of Wednesday, Velayutham (Tamil), 7aum Arivu (Tamil), and the latter’s Telugu-dubbed version, The 7th Sense.

    hi kathy,
    when r u going to watch But dont compare it hollywood movies as those have budget of over 100 million dollars n has 30 million. But one thing for sure has shown that a good sci fi movie with good special effects can be made with a small budget.
    Waiting for the review.

      Hi, tanay! I’m on vacation right now, so I won’t be able to see RA.One until Monday. A small budget used wisely can make a much better movie than one with a huge budget spent poorly, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the makers of RA.One used their resources. It should be fun.
