One new Hindi film hits Chicago area theaters on April 21, 2017. The comedy Noor — which stars Sonakshi Sinha as a Mumbai journalist — is based on the novel Karachi, You’re Killing Me! by Saba Imtiaz.
Begum Jaan carries over for a second week at the South Barrington 24 and MovieMax Cinemas in Niles.
Local theaters have announced showtimes for Baahubali 2‘s release on Thursday, April 27. Tickets are already available for a full week of shows at MovieMax, which carries Baahubali 2 in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi (all with English subtitles). If you want to splurge, four area theaters are showing Baahubali 2 on their IMAX screens, with 2D showings in Telugu and Tamil starting at 2:30 p.m. next Thursday: Century 12 Evanston in Evanston, Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale, Cinemark Tinseltown USA in North Aurora, and Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge. Be prepared to pay for the IMAX experience, with tickets ranging in price from $30-40. I expect other non-IMAX theaters to add showtimes sometime next week.
Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend:
- Manje Bistre (Punjabi w/English subtitles) at Stratford Square
- Georgettan’s Pooram (Malayalam), Shuddhi (Kannada), Mister (Telugu w/English subtitles), The Great Father (Malayalam), Power Paandi (Tamil), Kadamban (Tamil), Kaatru Veliyidai (Tamil w/English subtitles), Cheliyaa (Telugu w/English subtitles), and Kavan (Tamil) at MovieMax
