One of the most ambitious and truly international films to emerge from India is set to dominate cinemas worldwide as Reliance BIG Pictures presents the long-awaited KITES a film that will undoubtedly fly high in Box Offices across the globe when it releases on 21st May 2010.
KITES, the widest ever release for any Indian film production to date, heralds a new milestone in international filmmaking by truly crossing geographical, cultural and social boundaries making it a film which cannot be confined to any singular defining film genre. Anurag Basu, one of the most forward-thinking directors to emerge from India and fearless in his vision of breaking the conventions associated with Indian filmmaking, directs the heartthrob of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan, one of India's most idolized artists.
Hrithik sets screens ablaze with the on-screen chemistry he shares with smoldering Mexican beauty, Barbara Mori, the South American screen icon who has been creating waves across the international film circuit. KITES has been produced by veteran of Indian cinema, Rakesh Roshan, under his Filmkraft banner.
KITES trails a filmic journey through the neon and nightlife of the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas, where the crew took special permissions and blocked off roads for filming to the point of creating rain in the middle of the Nevada desert, through to the barren and beautiful landscape of New Mexico, where the natural beauty and unusual cloud formations provide a Utopia-like backdrop to a kaleidoscopic piece of cinematic work. The film effortlessly seams together romance, action, thriller and road trip into a montage that will guarantee a love affair with audiences universally. Narrated through a series of slickly edited flashbacks, KITES tells its story through a mix of Hindi, English and subtitled Spanish. The soundtrack has been composed by music maestro Rajesh Roshan who has created a haunting ensemble of tracks fusing Western, Indian and Latino ballads.
