KITES, the eagerly anticipated romantic adventure starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori in lead, will open globally, including the U.S. and Canada, on May 21st, day and date with its Indian release. The Rakesh Roshan production, will be released by Reliance BIG Pictures on more than 2000 screens simultaneously, including over 200 in the States.
KITES is a unique Bollywood film in a number of ways, not the least of which is the fact that a reworked English language version, designed to extend the reach of the original, will be launched in select engagements one week later. Entitled KITES: THE REMIX, it is being presented by Brett Ratner, who oversaw its creation. In the States, KITES: THE REMIX will be released in association with Mark Urman's Paladin, and will open in several major markets, including New York and Los Angeles, for the Memorial Day holiday weekend beginning May 28th (one week after the Hindi version release).
Sharp direction by Anurag Basu of GANGSTER and LIFE IN A METRO fame is something to look forward to. Music Maestro Rajesh Roshan's music, who is known for his superhit music in KAHO NAA PYAAR HAI and KOI MIL GAYA, makes it to the number 1 spot again.
It is a tale of history of Love, Action, Dance and persecution. A romantic action thriller set in the urban surroundings of Las Vegas, Sante Fe and Los Angeles, including the breath-taking exotic locales of New Mexico. It is a poetic film based on chronological events that take place in the lives of all the three characters of the film. A strong star cast - Hrithik Roshan, Barbara Mori, Kangana Ranaut, Kabir Bedi and Nick Brown, each of the film's actors are talented and recognized globally.
With so much in store, this Bollywood flick is all set to take over the world we say...like kites flying high in the sky!
In the harsh terrain of the Mexican desert, a mortally wounded man is left for dead in the heat of the desert sun. This is J.
Once a street smart, carefree young guy. Now, a wanted man. As death looms, the only thing that keeps him alive is the quest to find the love of his life, Natasha. A woman betrothed to another man, but surely destined for J. A woman who comes into his life like a bolt of lightning and changes it forever.
KITES is a story of love that goes beyond barriers, boundaries and cultures. It is a story of passion that defies every rule, of a relationship that takes two lovers on a thrilling journey filled with precious moments and unexpected betrayal that is beyond comprehension.
