Dedh Ishqiya opens on Friday at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. Unfortunately, the Cantera is only showing the movie once per day at 10:15 p.m. The movie has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 32 min. (Update: I won’t be able to review Dedh Ishqiya until Monday. Update 2: Make that Wednesday.)
I’m a little bummed that the cool-looking Bengali adventure film Chander Pahar isn’t opening in the Chicago area this weekend. The movie’s official website promises an expanded release next weekend, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
The Indian film getting the widest release this weekend is the Telugu movie Nenokkadine (1). It gets an early Thursday night release at the Golf Glen 5, AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, and Century Stratford Square in Bloomingdale before it expands to the Carmike Market Square 10 in Dekalb on Saturday. The Stratford Square’s website specifies that the film has English subtitles, so I’d assume that’s the case for all the prints at all local theaters. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 7 min.
Starting Friday, the Golf Glen 5 will also carry the Tamil films Jilla and Veeram. Due to the scheduling quirks of the Carmike Market Square, Veeram will open there on Saturday, and Jilla will open on Sunday.
