Opening May 3: Shootout at Wadala

One new Hindi movie opens in the Chicago area on May 3, 2013. Sadly, it’s not Bombay Talkies*, but Shootout at Wadala looks like it could be a cool action flick. The trailer features Anil Kapoor using wet laundry to beat up a guy, for Pete’s sake!

Shootout at Wadala 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. 25 min.

Fans of Hindi films may want to check out Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which features Bollywood vets Om Puri and Shabana Azmi in supporting roles. It opens locally on Friday at Landmark’s Century Centre Cinema in Chicago.

Other Indian movies playing locally this weekend include Greeku Veerudu (Telugu) at both the Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge and the Golf Glen 5, which also carries Ethir Neechal (Tamil), Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde (Telugu), and Immanuel (Malayalam).

*Director Karan Johar tweeted that Bombay Talkies will release internationally after it premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19.

      I choose to imagine that this is a regular feature of life in India, as if on every street-corner, somebody’s getting the tar beaten out of them by a dude wielding a wet shirt.

    I am super excited for this film, more so after I started reading Manya Surve’s story in the book Dongri To Dubai. I have a feeling that those hailing from Mumbai or those who have read the story would be able to relate with it more. Just what I feel.

      I’m going to be really interested to read your review, Keyur, since I’m going into the movie without knowing the story behind it. Looking forward to it.

          Thanks for the link, Keyur. I’m going to wait to read your review until after I see Shootout at Wadala on Monday. Looking forward to it. In the meantime, everyone should head over to Keyur’s blog!
