Opening June 17: Always Kabhi Kabhi and Bheja Fry 2

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).

After posting impressive opening weekend earnings of $460,238 in 97 U.S. theaters, Ready continues for a second week at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 & RPX in Warrenville.

Meanwhile, Dum Maaro Dum finished its seventh week in three theaters in the United States, earning $220. Its total American haul is $563,699.

Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Aaranya Kaandam (Tamil) at the Golf Glen 5 and Badrinath (Telugu) at both the Golf Glen 5 and Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove.
