Opening August 19: Happy Bhag Jayegi

Diana Penty plays a runaway bride in the romantic comedy Happy Bhag Jayegi, the only new Bollywood film opening in the Chicago area on August 19, 2016. Penty’s co-stars include Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill, and Ali Fazal.

Happy Bhag Jayegi opens on Friday at MovieMax Cinemas in Niles and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 6 min.

Mohenjo Daro carries over for a second weekend in seven local theaters: MovieMax, South Barrington 30, AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Round Lake Beach Stadium 18 in Round Lake Beach, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.
