In Theaters January 13, 2012

As independent films make their way into theaters in advance of Oscar season, there’s little screenspace available for Bollywood movies without all-star casts. Accordingly, there are no new Hindi movies opening in the Chicago area the weekend beginning Friday, January 13, 2012.

The Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington are both carrying over recent releases Players and Don 2, though only the South Barrington 30 has Don 2 in 3D.

Both of the above theaters will also feature the Tamil film Vettai as of Friday. Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Bodyguard (Telugu), Business Man (Telugu) and Nanban (Tamil). Business Man is also showing at the Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge.
