Opening July 7: Mom and Guest Iin London

Two new Hindi films hit Chicago area theaters on July 7, 2017. Sridevi plays the title character in the thriller Mom, which gets the wider release of the two movies.

Mom opens Friday at AMC River East 21 in Chicago, MovieMax Cinemas in Niles, AMC South Barrington 24 in South Barrington, Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 20 min.

This weekend’s other new release is the comedy Guest Iin London, the followup to 2010’s Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?. Paresh Rawal returns as the problematic guest, but Ajay Devgn and Konkona Sen Sharma aren’t back for the sequel, sadly. Guest Iin London opens Friday at the South Barrington 24 and has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 13 min.

Following a stellar holiday weekend, The Big Sick expands across the Chicago area on Friday. Tubelight carries over at MovieMax and the South Barrington 24.

Tickets are already on sale for the 15th anniversary presentation of Devdas, taking place in theaters across the United States on Sunday, July 23. Visit Fathom Events for more information and a list of theaters carrying the special showing.

Opening March 25: Rocky Handsome

One new Bollywood movie opens in the Chicago area on March 25, 2016. Rocky Handsome — starring John Abraham — is an apparently faithful remake of a South Korean movie that I love: The Man From Nowhere. The remake fills me with trepidation, but I am open to being pleasantly surprised.

Rocky Handsome opens on 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. 6 min.

Last weekend’s big hit Kapoor & Sons carries over at all three of the above theaters, plus the AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison, Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.

Neerja gets a sixth week at MovieMax and the South Barrington 30, which also carries the English-language film Miss India America in limited engagement.

In Theaters: January 16, 2015

While there are no new Bollywood movies opening in the Chicago area on Friday, January 16, 2015, there are still plenty of Hindi movies to see in local theaters.

Two recent releases — Tevar and PK — continue their theatrical runs. Tevar gets a second week at the Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. PK gets a fifth week at the South Barrington 30 and Cantera 17.

One older Hindi film finally makes its U.S. theatrical debut on Friday. 2012’s 5-hour epic Gangs of Wasseypur is being released in two parts in select theaters across the country, including the South Barrington 30. Part 1 debuts on January 16, and it will be replaced the following Friday, January 23, by Part II.

The Indian movie that is dominating local screenspace in unprecedented fashion is the sci-fi/fantasy adventure romance I, which opens today. Originally shot in Tamil, I is also dubbed into Telugu and Hindi. It’s showing all across the Chicago area, with different theaters carrying different versions (all of them supposedly have English subtitles). Here’s a list based on info available at Fandango:

Tamil: AMC River East 21 in Chicago; Century 12 Evanston in Evanston; Century 16 Deer Park in Deer Park; MovieMax Cinemas in Niles; Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont; Cinemark Melrose Park in Melrose Park; Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale; Marcus Addison Cinema in Addison; Cantera 17; Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge; Cinemark Louis Joliet Mall in Joliet

Telugu: River East 21; Century 12 Evanston; Century 16 Deer Park; MovieMax; Rosemont 18; Cinemark Melrose Park; Century Stratford Square; Marcus Addison Cinema; AMC Showplace Naperville 16 in Naperville; Cinemark at Seven Bridges; Cinemark Louis Joliet Mall

Hindi: MovieMax; South Barrington 30; AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge

I’m not sure which language version is showing at the Regal Gardens 1-6, but I’m betting Tamil since that’s what’s showing at the Cantera (another Regal theater). Considering that several theaters are showing multiple versions of I, be sure to check the schedule before you head to the theater to make sure you select the correct showtime.
