I updated my list of Hindi movies streaming on Netflix to reflect one new addition to the catalog. Director Richie Mehta’s acclaimed 2013 drama Siddharth — which released in U.S. theaters in June — is now available for streaming.
One new Hindi movie opens in the Chicago area this weekend. Kurbaan stars Kareena Kapoor as a professor entangled in the schemes of a terrorist, played by her real-life boyfriend, Saif Ali Khan.
Kurbaan, listed at some cinema websites by its English title, “The Sacrifice,” will open at the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville and Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles. The movie’s runtime is listed as 2 hrs. 32 min.
Other Indian movies in theaters this weekend include Kanden Kadhalai (Tamil) and Magadheera (Telugu) at Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove and Kurradu (Telugu), Heer Ranjha (Punjabi) and Bettadapurada Ditta Makkalu (Kannada) at the Golf Glen 5.
