The romantic comedy sequel Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is the only new Bollywood film opening in the Chicago area on August 24, 2018. The 2016 original — Happy Bhag Jayegi — was just okay, but maybe the addition of Sonakshi Sinha to the cast can liven up the second film.
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi opens Friday at the AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 16 min.
Gold carries over for a second week at the South Barrington 24, AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.
Satyameva Jayate also gets a second week at MovieMax and the South Barrington 24.
