Opening May 24: Ishkq in Paris

Preity Zinta stars in Ishkq in Paris, the first film from her production house, PZNZ Media.

Ishkq in Paris gets a very limited opening in the Chicago area, debuting on Friday, May 24, 2013, at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles. It has a listed runtime of just 1 hr. 36 min.

Aurangzeb gets a second week in area theaters, despite shockingly low first-weekend receipts of just $91,000 in North America, according to Bollywood Hungama. (My usual source for figures, Box Office Mojo, doesn’t list Aurangzeb‘s U.S. returns.) Aurangzeb carries over at the Golf Glen 5, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

The Golf Glen 5 is also holding over Go Goa Gone for a third week, with earnings of $270,139 in the U.S. so far. As noted in my latest Streaming Video News, Go Goa Gone becomes available for rent on Eros Now starting this Friday.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Mumbai Police (Malayalam) and the Tamil film Soodhu Kavvum.

    Hi Kathy – I’m looking forward to your review as well as seeing the film. It seems that I’ve been waiting so long for Priety’s Parisian romance. I even mistakenly bought Anu Menon’s London, Paris New York think it was was Priety’s film.

    I hope the film is fun to wtch.

    jmm.

      I’m going to have to wait for Ishkq in Paris on DVD, unfortunately. Because I like Preity, I’m predisposed to like this movie. I hope it’s good. Anyone else’s reviews are welcome here!

    Hi Kathy, I am a South Indian who like your reviews a lot. it’s good to see movies I like through the eyes of a foreigner. Well, I’d like to recommend you to try watching a malayalam movie which will give you a different cinematic experience. You may start with the new hit Malayalam movie “Diamond necklace”, or “ustad hotel”. You will find something different from Hindi Cinema.

      Thanks for the recommendations, Godwin, and I’m glad you like my reviews. I’ve chosen to focus almost exclusively on reviews of Hindi movies for this site, but I will keep these Malayalam films in mind for own recreational viewing. Thanks again!
