Kites Review


Synopsis - J or Jai (Hrithik Roshan) is a person living in Vegas
in search of luck.Finally lucky charm came in form of Jia (Kangana
Ranaut),a rich casino owner's daughter, when she proposes him.There he
falls in love with his future brother in law's fiancee,Nathasha (Barbara
Mori) where he had to make a choice between money n love.

Script
- This film considered to be Hrithik Roshan's attempt to expose him as
an international brand n thus attract some Hollywood eyes.So the script
is packaged in such a manner where it gives more value to Hrithik's
skills as an actor,dancer n stuntman.But the writers (Anurag Basu,Robin
Bhatt etc) failed to bring up an innovative storyline to support Hrithik
Roshan.Before the release,I already had an idea about how well can be
Rakesh Roshan's Story gonna look.Its just a typical Bollywood Love Story
taken in Hollywood style frames n action.But it lacks
innovation,grip,pace n above all novelty.Just like someone said,Too Many
Cooks Spoil the Broth,Too many writers failed to communicate with each
other to bring out a decent script.Anurag Basu who was credited with the
script of Gangster n Metro should have done the job alone.Plus the film
had more English n Spanish dialogues than Hindi.Hope this won't
backfire.Plus they left a loads of space just for action.Blasting n
Crashing cars won't narrate a story.

Direction - I would have easily told the Visuals were great.But
again its Deja Vu for people who follows Hollywood films.The Action
sequences were lifted from Bad Boys II,the Road Scenes (with locations)
looked very much similar to Susan Saradon n Geena Davis starrer "Thelma n
Louise".The director again failed to maintain pace in this film.That
mainly because of the reasons mentioned before.Inspite of being just
above 2 hrs,I had to look at my watch at regular intervals.One place I
have to appreciate Anurag Basu was the casting of Barbara Mori.Very
rarely will you see non desi actors overshadowing our stars in our
films.The film lacked the poetic effect of Gangster (which was a love
story) n the climax shot was just a rehash of it.But driving from Vegas
to Mexico with a tired body n a bullet was bit too incredible .

Music & Background Score - Dil Kyu Yeh Mera...happens to be
the best song n well picturised out of the list.Zindagi...is another
noticable number.Tum Bhi Ho Wahi...has been picturised during a hot
chase scene which I didn't personally appreciate.Then the dance number
Fire n another song to display Hrithik's singing ability...Kites in the
Sky which I liked just because of its picturisation.

Technical
Expertise
- Cinematography will surely earn the respect of any
critic.Ayank Bose has done a terrific job in terms of framing
(Especially during the action sequences),colour tone (use of neon
lights,black n white colour n postcard effect).Action Scenes are good
but as mentioned inspired.Choreography was excellent.Hrithik's make up
after the disaster was great n Barbara looked really lovely.

Cast & Performance - We know Hrithik Roshan is perhaps the
most hardworking actor after Aamir Khan in Bollywood.He looked hand in
glove to the role J.As
Salsa Dancer,he danced well,He performed stunts scenes well (eventhough I
didn't feel his scenes were taken efficiently).But He wasn't effective
as an actor in this film because it got heavily overshadowed by his body
show n previously mentioned reasons.For me,his best performance happens
to be in Lakshya.Barbara Mori as Nathasha aka Linda was the show
stealer.Her smile is so magnetic that it will remain in your mind if
nothing from the film remains.She handled her character gloriously n
didn't show an signs of insecurity.The only other character I remember a
bit is the guy who played Hrithik's buddy Robby.Kangana seems to have
earned the Drug Addict Icon of India.Just like Metro,Gangster,Woh
Lamhe,Fashion,here also she had to play the role of a terribly disturbed
gal.The guy who played the role of her brother was a big bore.Kabir
Bedi had to do whatever he usual does in Hindi films.Special Mention -
There is special body show by Kangana,Barabara n of course Hrithik
Roshan.

Production Value - Spent Rs 140 crores for
blasting a few cars n using Vegas n Mexico as locations??....Well...the
film didn't have the look of a 140 crore.I felt a 65 crore Sivaji looked
far more grand than this.Actually still wondering where did the 140
crore was spent since Hrithik,Rakesh,Rajesh r all part of the producers'
team.

On whole...This Film is all hype n nothing to live
upon.Its more like U R expecting a Well (water) n ended up as a
mirage.Just for some glamourous shots,Barbara Mori,Hrithik Roshan's
skills,U may give it a try...else U won't b disappointed to avoid....2.5/10
experience for me.

'Kites' grosses over Rs 60 crore in three days

'Kites' grosses over Rs 60 crore in three days




Rakesh Roshan has hit out at the critics of Hrithik Roshan starrer 'Kites' saying despite poor reviews, the film has grossed over Rs 60 crore in the first three days of its release.


"On the first day, the movie grossed Rs 21 crore. On Saturday, it earned Rs 20 crore and then on Sunday the collections increased by another Rs 21 crore," producer Rakesh Roshan told reporters.

The total three-day box-office collections, therefore, stand at Rs 62 crore.

"There has been no drop in collections. Going by the kind of reviews which we have got, the film should have been flopped by now," Roshan said while hitting out at film critics for rejecting the movie.

♥♥♥Kites review: Stylish, but dissappointing...♥♥♥


film: kites (hinglish)
theatre: new a/c dts ufo, thiruvananthapuram
date and time: 25-05-2010, 11 30 am
status: balcony 60%, reserved 35%


kites, directed by Anurag basu is noway special. It is just a rehash of many times told love story. This time, the love is between an indian born youth J(Hrithik Roshan) in las vegas, falling love with mexican girl Linda alias Natasha(Barbara mori). Linda cant speak hindi or english and J cant speak Spanish. But they fell in love...
The story takes a turn when J attacks Linda's would be and millionaire Tony and elopes with Linda. The chase begins then and Tony is all set to destroy the pair...

There is nothing new in story, script and twists in the film. Also most twists are predictable too..
The director , who had proved his caliber in earlier works, wants to make the film special, but the below average script prevents him from doing so. Anyway he was successful in giving the film an international flavor and colour.

The lead pair makes us watch the movie without boredom. As in his earlier movies, hrithik excels in dancing and action sequences. Barbara mori is cute and sexy.

The background music by salim sulaiman suits the mood and camera by ayananka bose is super. Music by Rajesh roshan is just average. I dont feel there is any other sections in the film which can be mentioned as positives.
Totally, Kites is charming, but it is flying without any strings. So cant predict where it goes or how it lands...

rating: 2.5/5

Box
Office: Kites first week collections; Rajneeti and Raavan preview

Friday, May 28, 2010








As per early week
figures coming in, Kites, falling further is wrapping up with Rs. 37-39
crores with single screens having abandoned the film and multiplexes
abandoning it mid-week just about as well. The film recorded collections
less than a third of the actual collection capacity as occupancies
ranged around 18%-34%, worst for a Hrithik Roshan film since perhaps
2002. And given the extreme costs, this one is a bigger loser than the
likes of Shahrukh Khan's My Name is Khan.

The actor's core base
of support appears to be no longer be there as in the hindi heartland
centers of UP, MP, occupancies were as low as 15%. So they bailed pretty
early. Interestingly in the south, such as Vishakhapatnam the film did
fare better doing around 50%. Chennai, Tamil Nadu tried to carry Kites
with response being around 80% in some theaters. But Tamil Nadu centers
are marginal in the overall scheme for a Hindi film. And problem for
Kites was it was rejected as a Hindi film but not accepted in a big way
elsewhere either, in terms of box office turnover.

Whatever
money Reliance ended up making from 3 Idiots it's fearing may lose in
Kites, and they are hoping Raavan doesn't follow next.

Raavan
maybe one film where Tamil Nadu may be more relevant. The Vikram -
Aishwarya Rai - Abhishek Bachchan fare Raavan where Tamil Nadu may show
better numbers than other parts of India because bulk of lead cast and
director: Aishwarya Rai, Vikram, Mani Ratnam; they are all South Indians
and the film maybe caters more to sensibilities in parts of Tamil Nadu.
However there then the Tamil version (Ravanan) will likely fare better
than Hindi version, so it remains to be seen how Raavan fares in the end
in totality.

In between next week releases, Ranbir
Kapoor-Katrina Kaif-Manoj Bajpai starrer Rajneeti. Raavan (both
versions) is a 100 crore film and Rajneeti around 45-50 crores.
