The action flick Naam Hai Akira — starring Sonakshi Sinha — opens in the Chicago area on September 2, 2016. In India, the film is releasing as simply Akira. If you’re going to have a separate international title, why not make it in English in the hopes of attracting a wider audience, especially since the movie has such an evocative poster?
Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend:
- Janatha Garage (Telugu w/English subtitles) at MovieMax, Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale, and Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge
- Pellichoopulu (Telugu w/English subtitles) at Stratford Square and MovieMax
- Kidaari (Tamil), Kuttrame Thandanai (Tamil), Pretham (Malayalam), and Dharma Durai (Tamil) at MovieMax
