Chicago area Bollywood fans have two new theatrical releases to choose from the weekend beginning June 17, 2011. The teen romance Always Kabhi Kabhi gets the wider opening of the two.
Always Kabhi Kabhi opens on Friday at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles and the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington. AMC’s site gives the movie its standard Hindi-film runtime of 2 hrs. 35 min., but I suspect it’s somewhat shorter based on how showtimes are staggered.
Also opening on Friday at the Golf Glen 5 is Bheja Fry 2, the sequel to 2007’s low-budget success Bheja Fry.
The Golf Glen 5 and South Barrington 30 are both carrying over Salman Khan’s Ready for a third week. The movie has earned $781,855 in U.S. theaters so far.
Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Avan Ivan (Tamil) and Badrinath (Telugu).
