Opening February 22: Kai Po Che and Zila Ghaziabad

There are two new Hindi movies opening in the Chicago area on February 22, 2013, though, sadly, Rise of the Zombie is not one of them. Kai Po Che is a coming-of-age story about three friends trying to establish themselves in Ahmedabad in the early 2000’s.

Kai Po Che opens on Friday at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 10 min.

The political action thriller Zila Ghaziabad is this week’s other new release. It stars Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, and Vivek Oberoi.

Zila Ghaziabad also opens on Friday at all of the above theaters except the River East 21. It’s rated PG-13 and has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 24 min.

Special 26 carries over for a third week at the Cantera 17 and South Barrington 30, which also holds over ABCD for a third week.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Aadhi Bhagavan (Tamil), Annayum Rasoolum (Malayalam), and Jabardasth (Telugu).

    Looking forward to Kai Po Che this weekend, since I’ve seen the promo, my (filmy) instinct said it would be a good movie. I had read the book on which the film is based “3 Mistakes of my life” am not much of a reader but was so much into the book that I remember I read the entire book in one stretch 8 hours flat 😛 (its by the same author Chetan Bhagat on whose first book “Five point someone” the movie 3 idiots was made). Hoping to watch it by Sunday. Waiting for your review Kathy in case u watch the movie before me.

      Enjoying a book enough to read it straight through in one sitting is a pretty high endorsement, Vivian. I’m heading out to see Kai Po Che shortly (and saving Zila Ghaziabad for Monday), so I should have a review up in several hours.
