Editorial Reviews

Hot, sexy, exotic, and wild are the only words to describe this "lovers-on-the-lam blast of pure pulp escapism." (The New York Times) Indian superstar Hrithic Roshan stars as J, a Las Vegas hustler engaged to the daughter of the city's most powerful and dangerous casino owner. But all bets are off when he falls in love with the ravishing Natasha (Barbara Mori), an illegal immigrant engaged to J's jealous and violent future brother-in-law. When their illicit romance is discovered, J and Natasha flee for the border with the police and relentless hired killers on their trail. Pulse-pounding action and sensational musical numbers propel this passionate love story to its stunning conclusion. This special edition contains the "deliriously entertaining" (Variety) full-length version that became the first Bollywood movie to make the American box office Top Ten, and Kites: The Remix, the edgier and sexier English language version produced by director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand).

Format: DVD
'Kites' was specifically made to appeal to Western sensibilities--it's not the first Bollywood film to try to crossover, but it is the first to succeed at it, and it does so while remaining true to the essence of Hindi cinema. 'Kites' looks like an American film, but it feels like an Indian one.

It's not the best Bollywood movie--not by a long shot--but by stripping itself of the typical trappings of Hindi films (and making itself stylistically familiar to Westerners), it reveals the heart of Bollywood--a beating, bleeding operatic heart. Hindi cinema is ultimately not about language or culture or musical numbers; it's about exalted melodrama that draws you in despite yourself and affects you with life's corniness and agony.

The story is set in Las Vegas; the actors speak a combination of Hindi, English, and Spanish; there is only one dance scene; and the plot follows a single sequence of events--all of which help make the film accessible to non-Indian audiences. Director Anurag Basu was the perfect choice for this project as his style naturally lends itself to the objective. Had his previous film, 'Life in a...Metro' (2007), been marketed abroad as aggressively as 'Kites' has been, it would have garnered the same critical praise in the U.S that his latest film has. Cinematographer Ayananka Bose produces sharp, gorgeous shots of the glitz of Las Vegas, the desolation of the desert, and the beauty of the leads, Indian superstar Hrithik Roshan and Mexican actress Barbara Mori.

Roshan and Mori play struggling immigrant hustlers Jay and Linda, who are about to marry into money--they are engaged to sister and brother Gina (Kangana Ranaut) and Tony (Nick Brown), the children of a ruthless crime boss/casino owner (Kabir Bedi).

I rented this because it has Hrithik Roshan in it, period! I love watching him dance and move about on the dance floor but OMG was he ever so marvelous in this movie. When he dances, I see the "pop" culture influence but I also see Greg Hines, Christopher Walken and Baryshnikov, all wrapped up in Hrithik Roshan. Watch him dance in one of the dream sequences in Guzaarish. This man is a triple threat!

Kites was action packed and the story was well told. I have watched Guzaarish since seeing Kites and both movies left me emotionally drained and gut wrenched! This man can act, he's not just "a pretty face." I remember Barbara Mori from watching Rubi and she responded well as Linda to Hrithik's Jay. She was perfect for this role. Their chemistry was quite good. Superb, absolutely superb movie...

Some people have issues with this movie not being in English, but it came in both languages, at least the one that I bought. Just make sure you read the descriptions before you buy it. I wouldn't mind it only in Hindi as long as it has the subtitles in English! I like this movie a lot!

Ok so I saw the trailer and the dance scene on you tube and decided to watch it. VERY disappointed!!!!! The trailer is its own movie itself. The movie is nothing like the trailer depicted. What caught my attention like in true Bollywood fashion was the dance scene I saw on YouTube and it wasn't in the movie at all!!! Very disappointed.

I didnt know that it was a Hollywood version of that beautiful movie. What a shame! I think the Bollywood version it s such way much better. And I noticed because I saw the original one. Looks like its something missing in the movie. I had to explain to the others why certain things happened. Looks like discontinuous sequences. Where is the scene with the dance with J. and Julia (the girl who danced with him at the Dance Contest?) i dont understand why they deleted that gorgeous scene. And they added the love scene! for what? i felt disappointed!
I really thought you were sending me the Original version (the next time im gonna write it down this: I WANT THE ORIGINAL MOVIE MADE IN INDIA)
Thanks any way.

I absolutely do not like the ending to this movie! Hate it! But other than that..a FANTASTIC movie for sure! I love pretty much anything with Hirthik Roshan in it. I did miss the Bollywood dancing and music in this but I know this version was made for us Americans...watched it twice! Good story line!

Kites

I bought this movie as I loved the Hindi version and wanted to experience an English version. (I don't speak Hindi, but thanks to the movies I'm learning a few words).

I enjoyed this movie as one of Hrithik Roshan's newer films, especially as I was able to understand the dialogue without having to read it, but I think it lost a bit in the remix.

Hrithik plays the part of J a young guy who falls in love with the wrong woman Linda/Natasha played by Barbara Mori. It has a sad ending, so be warned, but it is still a beautiful love story and one of my favourites.

The story is basically the same (30 minutes cut with a bit extra included), but the sound track is completely different to the Hindi (Original) version. That was a big loss to me. I love the music Rajesh Roshan put to the original movie - I also bought that soundtrack. The car chase (should I say truck chase) scene is not quite the same without Tum Bhi Ho Wohi as the background tune.

Hrithik can dance and this was a big part of the attraction of this movie for me. The part where J takes up with Gina and they compete in a dance contest is cut (just a very small part of their dance is kept) and I felt that this is a big loss to the movie. The part that is cut also shows how J is accepted into the family.

I agree with the statement on the back of the DVD cover "hot, sexy, exotic and wild" but I was quite happy with the more modest Hindi version. It is not as explicit as some Hollywood movies (thank goodness), I prefer movies that leave things up to your imagination!
