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.
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.
