Kites Movie Review – Hrithik Roshan & Barbara Mori’s Kite Flying in Bollywood

Star cast: Hrithik Roshan, Barbari Mori, Kangana Ranaut, Kabir Bedi and others.

Kites is an enthralling love story of a couple coming from different backgrounds and how their life goes through the ups and downs to finally find peace and solace in life.  It is a passionate love sage that defies rules and creates a relationship that goes through a thrilling journey with some very precious moments and an unexpected episode of betrayal.

Hrithik Roshan as Jai or J is a salsa-dance coach in the enticing Las Vegas that has been beautifully captured by Anurag  Basu, the director of Kites. Barbara Mori as Natasha, a beautiful Spanish girl, comes to J for a formal training in salsa.  Their language, though a barrier, brings them together despite all odds and the love story is beautifully woven.

Hrithik is an orphan with charming looks. He loves t do all odd jobs apart from teaching salsa to earn few more dollars. But he takes just one wrong step in life- he falls in love with the character of Natasha.

Barbara Mori is an illegal immigrant and is always fearful about her deportation. She’s all set to make her mark in USA and would leave no stones unturned, not even getting married to an American. She finally fins her love in Jai and leaves everything else behind.

Kangana Ranaut makes the story a love triangle, as everything she desires in life is Jai- her salsa teacher.

The story takes a turn when Jai is found lying in a mortally wounded condition in the Mexican desert.  He is alive because of his intense desire to meet his lady love Natasha, who is engaged to someone else, but is destined to meet Natasha.

The story goes through different angles and plots, with beautifully captured Mexican desert and other parts of Las Vegas.  Although the story is not something that you’ve never seen before, the choreography, cinematography and direction makes it appealing.  Watching it once will do no harm as the characters of Natasha and Jai are quite good, and deserve applause.

The main characters of the film live up to the expectations and their onscreen chemistry is quite good. Kangana Ranaut however, has very little to do in this field and is lost amidst the statures of Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori.

Anurag Basu has taken the movie to a different level, and has excelled as a director.

All in all, Kites is good; watchable!
