On Friday, March 22, Badla starts its third week at the River East 21, MovieMax, South Barrington 24, Cantera 17, and Naperville 16.
Gully Boy gets a sixth week at the South Barrington 24, Cantera 17, and Woodridge 18.

In news of movies that aren’t playing in Chicago right now, I’m super bummed that we didn’t get Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota (“The Man Who Feels No Pain“). I also expected The Wedding Guest to expand out from Chicago into suburban theaters, but that didn’t happen either. In better news, it looks like Dev Patel & Anupam Kher’s Hotel Mumbai will open wide across the Chicago area next weekend, so that’s cool.
Other Indian movies showing in Chicago area theaters (all films have English subtitles unless indicated):
- Chaal Jeevi Laiye (Gujarati) at MovieMax, Rosemont 18, and Naperville 16
- June (Malayalam), Band Vaaje (Punjabi w/no subtitles), 118 (Telugu), Thadam (Tamil), and Kumbalangi Nights (Malayalam) at MovieMax
