Kites- the flight was boring & a never ending one

May 24, 2010 at 10:43 am 17 comments

Popcorn, Pesi, a hot dog and a burger each, nachos & one over hyped movie.

I never anticipated it could be that bad. I thought critics were way too insensitive towards the film after all it comes from the famous ‘Roshan’ stable.

BTW I have never written a review before but my wasted Saturday evening compels me to do so.

Anyhow, I will start on a good note; two good things about the film

1. Kangna Ranut- way to go girl. She barely has 5 scenes and probably 2-3 dialogues but they way she has emoted those makes me give her a thumbs-up! We all know Hrithik is unbeatable when it comes to dance but she makes a good match to his moves.

2. Music is nice. It helped in breaking-away from the monotony of the over stretched film.

Now the negatives (from where should I even begin). Okay, since everyone including our dear Patty was keen to know about the chemistry between Roshan Jr. & Barbara Mori, then in two words- it is very mechanical nothing that would make your go Awww!!

Too many flashbacks and the irritating bit was the scenes you saw 15 minutes back were repeated as part of them. Though they have tried to make the movie a la ‘Hollywood’ style it has high dose of ‘bollywood masala’ which only adds to the grouse. It is indeed an expensive production because of the number of cars they have blown-up.

Half of the audience left in intermission and rests (like me) were hoping that second half would be better. To understand 70% of the film you will have to read the English sub-titles thanks to Ms. Mori’s Spanish dialogues. So, it is not a masses movie.

Mr. Basu your last flick made a good mark and this one left an impression but a negative one. Mr. Roshan (sr.) we prefer your directions and Hrithik please don’t act in such films again. Maybe you are too much in love with it to spot all the holes it has.

As for Dr. D who had accompanied me (thanks!) she was eating through the first half and sleeping through the second. And in the end shoved me and said ‘I told you lets go for Shrek Ever After’ instead. We could have but only if I knew the level of disappointment that was in-store.

Basically, if you have nothing better to do then sleep at home but don’t step in the theatre to watch Kites.

PS: Tang; you don’t have to see the film only to get inspired by Hrithik’s well-chiseled body. There are better ways that can make you hit a gym!!

    Ihe theme is not bad.. but i’m not so sure.. will take a few days to get accustomed to it.. your previous one was quite cool , but change is important!
    Ah what can i say bout the movie , you’ve said it all; Oh and I couldn’t stop laughing out loud at the supposedly teary, heart rending scenes! And how we clapped when hrithik finally ended our misery by jumping off the cliff! Yeah i gave out the ending! what were any of you planning to watch it ?!! Pl. Save yourselves the torture!

  • 10. Prateek  |  May 24, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Pretty nice summing up of the movie. Poor girl, you had to face 3rd degree torture for nearly 2 hrs. But with Dr. D and others along it wouldn’t have been that bad.

    P.S. Nice theme. Pretty and not so loud i.e. devoid of any complicated designs. Simple and beautiful, just like the blog’s author. 🙂

  • 11. Mayur  |  May 26, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    • 15. delhizen  |  May 31, 2010 at 10:35 am

      trust me Rahul, you are not missing out on much in life by not seeing Ms. Mori’s work… 🙂

  • 16. rb  |  June 21, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    Thanx to the feedback from friends including you, I have decided NOT to watch Kites. It will be the first time I will be boycotting a movie produced by Rakesh Roshan… 🙂

    • 17. delhizen  |  June 23, 2010 at 1:44 pm
