Sensual scenes,boring story,illogical matter and blah blah blah.

You cannot feel the so-called intense love between the characters.

it was predictable from the fact like good pictures such as "Swades" and "lakshya" failed to set a mark on box office then a movie like "Kites" certainly cant be a blockbuster keeping this fact in mind.

It has no story, no plan, no direction !

i was on the edge...

the resulting babel was confusing enough even for someone like me who's used to reading subtitles.

Overall, It has some adrenaline rush,romance & good ending.

The action scenes are simply superb and completely succeed in giving you in adrenaline rush.

Waste of money and time.

With some Intense Physical scenes and unique narration which really required for the story material, I think this movie is going to be a "Love It or Hate It" category.

Looking at the track record of Hrithik Roshan, Rakesh Roshan and Anurag Basu, a very polished, well worked upon and entertaining movie was being expected from the trio.

Overall a very good movie to waste money and time and to laugh after watching...

Some action sequences are entertaining and so are some of Hrithik and Barbara's scenes together.

Well then you have hit bulls-eye – Kites is indeed a breathtaking movie.

Hrithik is stunning and so is Barbara and all the cast - not a bit of over or under acting - just perfect and absolutely flawless !

What a waste of money and time,Hritik had done this type of movie in past ,Aap mujhe acche...

,& Muzse Dosti Karoge,same boring stuff he had done with the "Kites".

Many of the moments in the movie that were intended to be intense were moving so slow, it became extremely painful to watch.

In the end if the movie is worth the watch or does it belong to the league of films that don't live-up to the pre-release hype???

2 hrs of boredom.

Other than that it's a Total Adrenaline movie, with great cast and good locations.

Actress(Barbara) :Looking stunning,acted OK.

A movie worth watching on a weekend with family.

A movie could be anything but boring which Kites sadly is.

the intense feeling of love can be feeled after watching this movie.

Don't waste your money...

Overall I really enjoyed it.

In short, this movie is real bore!!!.

It was all disconnected and dryThe director got bored and started blowing up cop cars.

no story line !

Still, a bold and intriguing experiment, well worth watching.

Plus, the moments between J and Natasha during the second half can get quite boring since neither are they engrossing nor do they offer any character development.

Finally its worth watching for the effort the makers have kept.

Action:Good, but quite repetitive.

First half of the movie was so slow and dragging that I saw few people walking out of the theater.

a complete waste of money and time !

The flash-backs are not just too many, erratic and confusing to the viewer.

Worth watching once.

From there on, its pretty much predictable.

Don't waste your money by going to theater.

Basu seemed to champion cars smashing against cars followed by noisy explosions, and exploits this so much that it becomes generic and a formulaic yawn.

That explains how pointless and lifeless this movie was.

Strangely, the action packed second half doesn't have much action to boast of - save the chase scene on the Mexican highway.

Again the movie is painstakingly slow in the first half and goes haywire in the second.

With a predictable story, and over two hours runtime, what is that keeps you in the movie, i.

But no, we have seen it all (Yawn!

His stunning looks alternate between being some Greek god to an amorous Mexican to an Italian charmer.

Such moments were even drawing yawns from audience, to my surprise it wasn't just me.

Kites tried hard to fly with banality!!.

In short don't waste your money in this movie.

But the movie is poorly directed, very slow and dragging and extremely boring.

The cinematography is simply mind blowing, the movie took us to various locales which we have never seen in a Bollywood movie before.

The intense love between Hrithik and Barbara has been portrayed with utter perfection.

it is better than movies release with same boring, predictable stuff on nowadays.

His stunning looks are even more enhanced in this film, his body is a sculpture, he can dance like he has no bones and most importantly, he can act well too- a complete package really.

The music is forgettable and bland - nothing catchy at all.

Surely, the movie doesn't tell a completely unique or 'not seen/heard before' kind of love story; but the direction, great acting and the composing elements like scenes, landscapes, cinematography and music does make it worth watching for a great experience, when you are completely free and in a blue/romantic mood.

The movie is full of confusion.

The climax is sooo boring that one wants to quit the show before its end.

the first number was spectacular and lead actor:s moves were mind blowing.

Music is pretty average and sometimes boring though the background score is excellent (especially the Spanish / English song which plays in the background and is prominently heard through most of the trailers).

Breathtaking action sequences.

Many people here have complained that the first half of the movie is slow and disengaging.

While the first half of the film drags through, the second half is a cinematographer's delight - moving all over the stunning Mexican landscapes.

Hrithik's dance sequence is the only part worth enjoyable.

An enormous bore with Hrithik being the only ray of light.

Direction was bad, screenplay is sometimes slow and other times even slower.

The script is very poor and the story is generally uninspiring and at points does not even make sense.

The mature and even compelling performance he delivers here as a grey character lifts "Kites" to another level.

The narrative is filled with flashbacks and some sequences are devoid of words, resulting in a very confusing development which distracts from the main proceedings.

the plot is as predictable as in any typical love story...........

A torture.

This movie is really boring.

Yawn...

), seen better (Yawn Yawn!

Kites is basically a intense love story with an ordinary story that has resemblances of movies in 70s .

You know there are times when we've gotta be impetuous and need to have some adrenaline rush.

What a waste of talent and money.

First of all, the statement "closest ever bollywood's been to Hollywood" is confusing.

and YES I have seen the movie 3 times..Hrithik is mind blowing as always..I just want to say that those who think that its a boring movie those people really have no idea how to rate a movie...

"Kites" is a bravely attempted film well worth watching for many unique elements.

Hrithik and Barbara set the screen ablaze even if its only in the form of repetitive looks, stares and glares at each other.

This movie is worth watching every minute, u will be amazed by beautiful cinematography and beautiful story, not like other Indian movies..beautiful, beautiful movie...

Don't waste your money and time on this pathetic melodrama.

But then that's what the production is: Spectacularly boring.

We left like as if we were being dragged on a concrete floor on a bare butt.

The movie was going good until the love story started between Hrithik and Babra it slowed down and it got very boring.

Its just plain boring.

Some wonderful acting, great music, stunning dance by H, thriller, great cinematography and so on.

That description sounds boring no?

i saw loads of people in the front seats holding there heads due to how bored they got.

The script and the concept are all same but the location of the movie shooted and the presentation is different with lots of confusion in the screen play.
