Kites tried hard to fly with banality!!!
29 May 2010 | by (Shanghai) – See all my reviews

A bit of miss from Roshans this time. I tried my best to believe Jay(Hritik Roshan) is die-hard love with Natasha (Barbara Mori) for which he turned against whole world. But alas, there is no iota of passion I could find in their on-screen chemistry. Although, both Hritik and Barbara looks good individually.Bob (Kabir Bedi) gives warning to Jay on the first meeting that he can't see his daughter Gina (Kangana Raut) unhappy. And vanishes from the screen in whole of second half when Hritik run away with Natasha. Gina's hot tempered brother and Natasha's fiancé, Tony (Nicolos Brown)tried to speak awkward Hindi, don't know why.

Talking about story line, its totally beaten track. You might have seen the same story in hundreds of bollywood flicks if not thousands. For camera work, Mexican desert is anyway picturesque, a novice photographer with a good camera in hand can also give an awesome view of that region. Hritik, Barbara Mori, Kangana Raut are few of the most good-looking people in world, you make them look good on screen. Come on, I won't give you points for that. In terms of editing the train sequence, when Jay found unconscious in a goods train compartment was repeated at least thrice. Direction and script are confused, whole movie goes on two track before and after Jay was shot. And transition to and from flash back is poor.

Although acting wise there was not much of an expectation, the cast failed in meeting that as well. Except first few minutes of Hritik's dance, it was an ultimate torture to sit through 2 hours to watch an undeveloped love story of under developed characters.

Take away - Not worth an effort to go and watch in theater
