Kites is a film directed by Anurag Basu starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori as the lead actors. The film is based on the idea of Money can buy anything. Kites has some of the biggest names in the business - Rakesh Roshan, Anurag Basu and Hrithik Roshan. Therefore the film has a huge responsibility on its shoulder to fly higher than the hits delivered by this trio. But it fails to meet that expectation.
Shot in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Santa Fe, 'Kites' is an unconvincing love story about an Indian man's affair with a Latin woman and their predicament as they don't understand each other's language, 'Kites' is about their misadventure.
Finally the film reveals the story of J. (Hrithik Roshan) a dance teacher in Las Vegas, who is also in the business of marrying illegal immigrants in order for them to get green cards. While being at his dance class, a rich casino heiress Gina (Kangana Ranaut) falls for her dance instructor. When J. comes to know of the background of Gina, the lust for green paper makes him play along the romance and marriage game with Gina.
But when Gina brings him home to meet the family, J. meets Natasha (Barbara Mori) and discovers a piece of his past. The film travels back and forth time and locations - just as J. and Natasha find love in each other and elope to Mexico to start their live afresh while Tony (Nicholas Brown) Gina's brother and his gang is baying for their blood.
Kites is desi at heart, but also takes a few steps that might be considered risky by Bollywood standards. The leading lady speaks in Spanish and the makers have used sub-titles for people to comprehend. This, very frankly, might not go down too well with the traditional audiences.
Performance wise, Hrithik is just matchless. He has worked above the script which is commendable. Barbara Mori looks perfect for her part, but appears slightly mature at places. Kangana does not get much scope. Kabir Bedi has done a wonderful job. Nicholas Brown is top notch.
On the whole, Kites is stylish and slick, filmed like any international film. But the film also takes a few steps that might be considered risky by Bollywood standards. Kites does not justify the hype surrounding it but watch it for chemistry between Hrithik and Barbara Mori.

|On the whole, Kites is a nice movie, filmed like any international film. But it does not meet the expectations.
1. Hrithik and Barbara look hot and unbeatable on screen.
2. Rajesh Roshan's music is fine.
3. Ayananka Bose's cinematography is superb.
4. Salim-Sulaiman's background score suits the mood of the film.
1. The writing could've been tighter.
2. The couple's encounters with the American police look ludicrous.
3. There's no mention of Kabir Bedi after a point.
4. The climax is not formulaic. |

|Overall its a good movie, Mori and Rithik sex appeal and chemistry....all are good.
Kabir bedi also did a good job.....
Standrad storyline based on Money can buy anything including love... but turned out to be otherwise.. i.e Money can't buy love.............
Overll movie is good, but doesn't mett expectations/Hype it created.
Buts if you want to watich Rithik and Barbara looks/body then you won't be disppaointed....
