The Emraan Hashmi heist flick Raja Natwarlal opens in Chicago area theaters on August 29, 2014. The title roughly translates to “King Con,” so why on earth did they not use that title instead? It’s short, alliterative, and plays on the title King Kong. Movie studios: hire me.
Raja Natwarlal opens on Friday at the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 20 min.
Rani Mukerji’s thriller Mardaani gets a second week at MovieMax, South Barrington 30, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge. Singham Returns also carries over at MovieMax, South Barrington, and Cantera.
