Hard to fly for Kites

-Saket Narayan

Come back of Hritik Roshan after two years, Barbara Mori, Rakesh Roshan, Anurag Basu, heavy promotion, little controversy and the ‘K’ factor even not seems to fulfill the intension of flying the kites high up in the sky. The movie has lots in it but everything seems to be incomplete.

As a work it’s good one, for we should appreciate anyone’s hard work and we all know that film making is really a hard job. But when we look at the banner of the film and see its director and producer name the work seems to be quite diminutive. The movie is not a triangular love story but quadrant one. In the movie Hritik is a poor dance teacher and one of his students Kangana loves him but he is not interested. When he comes to know that Kangana is the daughter of the richest and most powerful person of the city, he thinks he has got an opportunity to become rich and there the love story starts. The twist in the movie comes when Hritik is invited in Kangana’s brother’s (tony) engagement party and see Barbara the fiancée of tony. Now he feels that he has really fallen in love and Barbara also gets attracted towards him, finally just before the day of marriage they both run away and from here the movie starts. Then what happen is to be seen on the silver screen.

In the movie they have tried to do a lot but after seeing the movie it seems that they were actually confused. Anurag Basu and Rakesh Roshan had a bollywood concept and tried to give hollywood treatment. But they exactly did not knew which one to give an edge. The acting in the movie is good and as an actor Hritik has left an impression. Even Barbara, tony and Kangana with small role have impressed. The music of the film is also good and Hritik’s dance is awesome. But as a movie of Rakesh Roshan, Anurag Basu and Hritik Roshan fame, it is not as per the expectation of viewers, it seems that the movie is missing something and at the end it can only be said that it looks hard for kites to fly at the box office.
