Some movies you go with expectation and get disappointed and some surprise you out of the blue. This is neither of them. It disappointed me even though I had very low expectations. All the hype about celebrities showing off at the premiere was even more nauseating given the output. At best it can be described as a cheap medley of bollywood romance, pointless car chases and stale humor.
A good movie is not about big budget or having stars on board or overt display of emotions to entice the audience. Its about story telling, novelty, about subtly brining out the nuances of human sensibilities and above all expressing director’s/writer’s heart. The actors should be a device for the plot and not the other way round. Kites lacks on all counts besides its overly long and becomes even painful by the end of it.
All the hype was just created to get the returns, for people will be curious to see it .
The movie seems to be an advertisement or a demo reel for Mr. Roshan for his entry into Hollywood. He has it all – looks, dancing and presence. The one thing he lacks is the ability to act. There is no chemistry between him and the lead actress, played by Barbara Mori.
I sincerely hope kites won’t set a new trend.
But , guess what? ,i have a gut feeling that kites would do well in terms of money,owing to its hype.It seems that film makers are more concerned about its promotion rather than its content.
