Opening August 21: All Is Well

One new Hindi movie opens in Chicago area theaters on August 21, 2015. Sadly, it isn’t Manjhi: The Mountain Man but All Is Well, a comedy whose trailer promises lots of yelling and pee jokes. The only reasons for optimism are that it’s directed by Umesh Shukla of OMG fame and stars Abhishek Bachchan, who’s good in comedies.

All Is Well opens Friday at MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 7 min.

Brothers carries over for a second week at all three of the above theaters, plus the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, and Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison.

The South Barrington 30 and Cantera 17 carry over both Drishyam and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which also sticks around at MovieMax.

The Pakistani film Bin Roye gets another week at the South Barrington 30.

Opening August 21: Sikandar

One new Hindi film opens in a couple of Chicago area theaters this weekend. Sikandar is about a football-loving boy from Kashmir who becomes a pawn in a political struggle between militants and the army. The movie has a runtime of 1 hr 50 min and will play at the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles.

After earning a solid $726,834 in U.S. theaters its opening weekend, the thriller Kaminey extends its run for a second week in theaters. It continues to play at the AMC South Barrington 30, Golf Glen 5, AMC Loews Pipers Alley 4 in Chicago and AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville.

Last week’s other new film, Life Partner, earned a disappointing $49,898 in U.S. theaters, eclipsed even by Love Aaj Kal‘s third week earnings of $85,632 (granted, Life Partner was only shown on 26 screens to Love Aaj Kal‘s 102). Life Partner sticks around for a second week at the AMC South Barrington 30.

There are several other Indian movies playing in the Chicago area this weekend. The Golf Glen 5 will show the Telugu movie Anjaneyulu and the Tamil movie Kanthaswamy, which is also showing at the theater in Telugu under the name Mallana.
