Chicago’s Bollywood drought continues. There are no new Hindi movies opening on Friday, March 26. The only Hindi films showing in the Chicago area are Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge and Right Yaaa Wrong, both at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles. I’m surprised that both of Boman Irani’s new films — Well Done Abba and Hum Tum Aur Ghost — were shut out of theaters.
With little to choose from in theaters, it may be time to hit the video store to rent some DVDs. Among the films on Bollywood Hungama’s list of Top Rentals, I recommend Kurbaan and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year.
Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Leader (Telugu) and Bodyguard (Malayalam) at Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove, and Angadi Theru (Tamil), Maro Charitra (Telugu), Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (Tamil) and Ye Maya Chesave (Telugu) at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5.
Don’t forget, the Golf Glen 5 is also broadcasting IPL cricket matches on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
