Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra plays a different kind of law enforcement officer in Jai Gangaajal, opening in Chicago area theaters on March 4, 2016.

Jai Gangaajal 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. 25 min.

Neerja carries over for a third week at all three of the above theaters, plus the AMC Showplace Village Crossing 18 in Skokie. MovieMax also holds over Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive for a second week.

Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Kalyana Vaibhogame (Telugu) at the Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, plus seven other films at MovieMax: Monsoon Mangoes (Malayalam), Pokkiri Raja (Tamil), Kshanam (Telugu), Maheshinte Prathikaaram (Malayalam), Puthiya Niyamam (Malayalam), Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha (Telugu w/no subtitles), and Action Hero Biju (Malayalam).

In Theaters March 4, 2011

The yearly Bollywood drought is underway. The only new Hindi movie scheduled for release in the whole month of March, Yeh Faasley, opens this Friday, but not in the Chicago area. Expect a flood of new films once the Cricket World Cup ends in early April.

Since there won’t be much news to report, I’m tabling my weekly theater updates in March unless a Hindi movie is showing at more than one Chicago area theater. I’ll also post if a specialty theater like the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles shows any classic Bollywood movies. Throughout the month, I’ll post DVD reviews of some recent releases and older favorites.

As of Friday, March 4, Tanu Weds Manu will be the only Hindi movie showing in the Chicago area. It gets a second week at the Golf Glen 5 and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington.

7 Khoon Maaf ends its theatrical run on Thursday. The black comedy earned $253,274 during its first two weeks in U.S. theaters.

Other Indian movies showing around Chicago this weekend include Kudirithe Kappu Coffee (Telugu), Life Before Wedding (Telugu), Mangala (Telugu) and Singampuli (Tamil) at the Golf Glen 5 and Aha Naa Pellanta (Telugu) at Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove.
