THE PLOT –
Kites is different. It’s a film that for once, defines why the production house is so called – Film Kraft.
It’s nothing short of a carefully crafted piece of art that may still find few connoisseurs. A superbly woven tale of endless love that transcends the barriers of race, religion and language – and glides into eternity, Kites will go into the books as one of the better films ever produced.
THE CAST –
Hrithik Roshan just takes everything about an actor to a different level altogether. He’s light years above the script and is ably supported by Barbara Mori. While the supporting cast sticks to their track, they are not the reason you would want to remember this love story.
It’s the Hrithik & Barbara Show, and it is awesome!
THE MUSIC –
Rajesh Roshan again comes up trumps in a home production. While the background music is well laid out too, the standout number remains Zindagi Do Pal Ki besides the other chartbusters including Dil Kyun Yeh Mera.
The soundtrack may not be Rajesh’s best but is definitely the ideal thing to have happened for the movie – subtle, soothing and ethereal!
THE VERDICT –
Kites has received a lot of flak in several reviews and from several big-mouths. It’s time people understood they had no business to talk about something that they did not understand at all – it doesn’t have to be the clichéd rocket science or mathematics all the time, you can actually miss everything in a piece of art such as this.
THE SCORE –
8.50 / 10.00
