I admit, I’m pretty excited for Dabangg 2. The original Dabangg was funny and clever, and I’m hoping for more of the same in the sequel. I’m also looking forward to the obligatory moment in the movie where Salman Khan removes his shirt, causing all of the women in the audience to scream.
Dabangg 2 opens on Friday, December 21, 2012, in six Chicago area theaters: AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 30 min.
The South Barrington 30 is the only area theater holding over any other Hindi movies after Thursday. It’s giving a third week to Khiladi 786 ($352,684 in total U.S. earnings) and a fourth week to Talaash ($2,706,375 in the U.S. so far).
The only other Indian movie showing in the Chicago area this weekend is the Tamil romance Neethaane En Ponvasantham at the Golf Glen 5.
