Ok, having said that let’s go through it in detail. It was the most hyped and most awaited movie in bollywood ever…The promotions done were convincingly international so what went wrong? Let’s peak in a bit more…

Story: No, it was not perfect…the plot was good, bad and the ugly. Jai (Hritik) and Natasha/Linda (Barbara Mori) were getting married to their respective partners for money. It turns out their partners are brother/sister and to put the icing on the cake, we get to know that Jai and Natasha are already married to each other. How? Natasha was an illegal immigrant who married Hrithik to get a green card who used to do this money. But when they met again, sparks of love is seen flying in the air…a slow and steady exchange of glances and another glance over another…then they find they are in love…and the story turns rough when they fled away. The rest is followed by chasing, hiding, a lil romance and spanish and english and hindi…and blah blah…Ooops sorry I got lost as I was while watching the movie. So one point down.


The highly anticipated chemistry, as was promoted during promotions, of Hrithik and barbara was very thanda…They were not that romantic or may be they were…might be off the screen lol…so one point down again…there steamy kiss was nowhere near the likes of what Hrithik gave in dhoom –2. Remember, Aish and Hrithik going commandos. The bikini clad Barbara and brief clad Hrithik scene was rather looking artificial to give the additional oomph factor but was again thanda…and to add to it was the “Give my Kiss back”…lolz…what was that? Pervert…your life in danger Jai…keep the sex part out of your mind…

For inevitable reasons of boredom, I’m not going in for details on music. Let’s just cut one point straight away…although Hrithik’s moves as perfect as perfect as they are stand out winning, it’s not helping you grab your seat till end.

kites-movie1Plus Point: Hrithik’s greek god look and the sensual looks of Barbara gives an international appeal to the film and so does the cinematography. The locations are exotic and acting is good. Everyone has done good as per the demand of the role.

But the crux remains the same that story was dull and dud and quite like a do away with. If only, they had worked more on the story it would have been a great experience and could have proved to be a milestone for bollywood going international.

P.S. – Ahh yes, Kangana Ranaut was also there, was she…yeah…I guess so…huh…what a waste of beauty and talent.

  1. Rakesh unperturbed by unfavourable reviews…

    The negative reviews and poor ratings by critics for his recently released movie ”Kites” have not affected filmmaker Rakesh Roshan. “Everybody has their own view point. If I like something, it is not necessary that o…

  3. Vishal says:

    I agree…the movie was just another over hyped…’laila majnu’ story! yes, the feel was good and so were the locations but at the end what matters is the story..which was not good.
