Kites Movie Review by Movie Critics

Jack Rico (ShowBiz Cafe)  3.5/5

Kites recalls such master movie mixologists as Sergio Leone, Quentin Tarantino, and Baz Luhrmann. Producer Rakesh Roshan and director Anurag Basu, have made Kites into an intoxicating cinematic cocktail with a flavor—and a kick—all its own.

Kara Baer ( 4/5

Kites is a pure Bollywood entertainer from start to finish. The Kites team have proven that it is possible to make a film that interprets mainstream Bollywood in all its big budget glory into a film style that works on both the world stage and at home.

Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 2.5/5

Watch Kites for its kool looks. But don’t expect the popcorn to remain crunchy for long.

Taran Adarsh ( 3/5

On the whole, KITES has style, visuals and Hrithik Roshan as its trump cards, but its content leaves a lot to be desired.

Martin D’Souza ( 3/5

KITES is a business module for anyone wanting to invest in movies and hit the jackpot. Provided they also get their PR machinery in place, almost a year before the release.

Raja Sen (Rediff) 2/5

Kites starts off well enough, but loses itself in a mess of superficiality, which would have been just fine if the film wasn’t also masquerading as operatic drama

Anupama Chopra (NDTV)  3/5

And yet the film doesn’t become more than the sum of its parts because the second half is flat and in places, outright foolish. It’s far from brilliant or even fully satisfying but it’s easily one of the better Bollywood films I’ve seen this year.

Khalid Mohammad (Passion For Cinema) 2/5

Kaho na story hai? Sorry, if there is one, it’s replete with cheesy coincidences, mind-spinning implausiblities, senseless killings and heisted material from more movies than you can count on your toes and fingers

Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 2/5

Kites is shot beautifully, produced lavishly and has some decent action sequences. However, the music remains average, while the background score is a bit too operatic. The major problem however, remains the ordinary story, and the garbled screenplay that follows.

Aniruddha Guha (DNA India)  2.5/5

Watch it only if you are a die-hard Hrithik fan and someone with low expectations.

Lisa Tsering (The 3.5/5

What makes the movie pop is a standout performance by Roshan, one of Indian cinema’s treasures. Blessed with near-divine good looks and a chiseled form (not to mention an auspicious extra right thumb), the green-eyed actor also happens to be Bollywood’s most accomplished dancer. Despite the extremes of Basu’s script and producer Rakesh Roshan’s story, Roshan anchors the film with a solid, believable performance and a palpable chemistry with his co-star that will remind audiences just how hot a good Bollywood romance can be

Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN)  3/5

Watch Kites because it’s an ambitious, brave experiment that may not always work, but it tries. Which is more than what one can say about many films we’ve seen recently.

Ashok Nayak (  2.5/5

Kites requires a bit of patience. Watch it without any distractions and you might just about like it.
