Kites Foreign Trailer (2010)

Somewhere in the blistering heat of the Mexican desert, a man has been left for dead. This is “J,” (Hrithik Roshan), a once- carefree Vegas huckster, now a wanted man, fighting for his life. As he makes his way back home, “J” relives the past, and we learn that the one thing keeping him alive is his burning desire to reunite with Linda (Barbara Mori), the love of his life. When “J” first meets her he is working odd jobs, the oddest of which is to marry “illegals” for money. Linda, fresh from Mexico, has barely enough cash to pay for the phony marriage but, like “J,” she has dreams of striking it rich in America. They wed and, that very night, she departs, green card in hand. Though he barely knows her, and they don’t even speak each other’s language, “J” will never forget her. The next time he sees Linda, she is engaged to Tony (Nick Brown), the son of a fabulously wealthy casino owner. As fate would have it, “J” is dating Tony’s sister. Both of them are prepared to marry for money so they can finally make their dreams come true. There are just two problems: they are still legally married and they have fallen madly in love. Choosing one another over wealth, they flee, with a vengeful Tony in hot pursuit…

A supremely romantic tale of star-crossed lovers destined to be together but doomed to be apart, Kites is Bollywood as you’ve never seen it before. Filmed almost entirely in English and Spanish, and completely set in America and Mexico, the film is far more international in appeal than most traditional Indian super-productions. Yes, the extravagant scale, intense emotionalism, and unshakeable sincerity are all there. But, at a mere 130 minutes, the film is practically a short subject by Bollywood standards and, though there is a big dance number (performed with gravity-defying grace by the astonishing Roshan), it is actually integrated into the plot! Like the romance at its center—“a love that knows no language”-- Kites rises above nationality. Impossible to categorize, it blithely leaps from romance, to musical, to action adventure, to western, referencing any number of Hollywood genres while reveling in each of them. Recalling such master movie mixologists as Sergio Leone, Quentin Tarantino, and Baz Luhrmann, producer Rakesh Roshan and director Anurag Basu, have made Kites an intoxicating cinematic cocktail with a flavor—and a kick—all its own.
