In Theaters October 21, 2011

Bollywood seems to be taking the weekend off in anticipation of the release of Shahrukh Khan’s massive 3D superhero epic Ra.One next Wednesday. Rascals is the only Hindi movie showing in Chicago area theaters the weekend beginning Friday, October 21. The comedy — which has earned $261,156 in U.S. theaters so far — carries over at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles and AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include the Telugu films Dookudu, Oosaravelli and Pillai Zamindar and the Malayalam movie Indian Rupee (though the Golf Glen 5’s print may be dubbed in English).

Opening October 14: Aazaan

Aazaan is the only new Hindi movie opening in the Chicago area the weekend beginning October 14, 2011. It’s a bit of a surprise that Aazaan is opening here at all, as the bio-warfare action film features no established Bollywood stars, usually a prerequisite for securing screenspace in American theaters. Based on the trailer, it looks like it could be a decent thriller:

Aazaan opens on Friday at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles and the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. and 8 min.

The only other Hindi movie showing in the Chicago area this weekend (apart from those showing at the Chicago International Film Festival) is Rascals, which carries over for a second week at the Golf Glen 5, South Barrington 30 and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. Rascals earned $168,082 in its opening weekend in the U.S. — $8 of which, unfortunately, were mine.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Khushiyaan (Punjabi) and the Telugu films Dookudu, Oosaravelli and Pillai Zamindar.
