In Theaters: January 31, 2014

Sadly, the Abhay Deol-Preeti Desai romcom One By Two isn’t opening in the Chicago area on Friday, January 31, 2014. That leaves local Bollywood fans with two options in theaters: Dhoom 3 and Jai Ho.

Jai Ho got off to a rocky start in U.S. theaters last weekend. Despite opening on more screens (195) than any previous Salman Khan film, it earned just $840,506 in the U.S. Its per-screen earnings of $4,310 are the lowest of any Khan film since Veer opened in January, 2010, with per-screen earnings of $3,637.

Jai Ho carries over for a second week at the 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.

Dhoom 3 gets a seventh week at the South Barrington 30.

Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda (Telugu) at the Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont and Inga Enna Solluthu (Tamil) at the AMC Loews Streets of Woodfield 20 in Schaumburg. The Golf Glen 5 will carry Chhota Bheem and the Throne of Bali, Drishyam (Malayalam), Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal (Malayalam), Heart Attack (Telugu), and Rummy (Tamil).

    Kathy,
    For International Audience where the movie one by two wasn’t released at your local theaters,the makers came up with an option of VOD.Infact,for the first time in the history of Indian Cinema,a Bollywood movie has been released on Facebook on the same day of its release in theaters.Although, FB has blocked the IP addresses in India for the obvious reasons.The price is around $5 and it is altogether a different matter whether you want to watch it given the bad ratings it received.
    PS:I am assuming you are unaware of this piece of information.

      This is really cool, Nicky! Thanks for mentioning it. I haven’t been able to find a link to the streaming version of the movie, possibly because I’m not on Facebook. If you (or anyone else) have a link to direct people to where they can rent the movie, please let me know.

    Kathy,
    Below are the two facebook pages where the makers say they have made the movie available.
    Abhay Deol’s FB page
    https://www.facebook.com/AbhayDeol
    One By Two Film FB page
    https://www.facebook.com/OneByTwoFilm
    Now if you go to Abhay Deol’s FB page ,the background cover photo has”Click on the tab below” to watch the movie.This tab/link is however invisible/disabled for users in India.So try logging into that page using a friends account and see whether it works.

      Thanks, Nicky! I logged in and checked on Abhay Deol’s page, and the rental process seems really easy. I may check out the movie this way, at some point.
