Kites - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Lovely locales are shot and edited beautifully and set to some very nice background music. But the story doesn't fly that high. The twists and turns are mere ploys to get to an end that was decided before the first chapter was written.

Plot Summary

J (Hrithik Roshan) is in trouble because he didn't something unforgivably grave that he was not supposed to do in bad-town Las Vegas.

What Worked

  • The underwater photography.
  • The editing between the fountain and the romancing couple.
  • The mass destruction of cars. Felt bad for the cars but was a good vent for my destructive tendancies.
  • Reference to 42, even if it meant nothing. :D

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Hrithik's tan - looked too artificial.
  • Are Indians allowed to break all rules in the US? Drinking and driving, no seat belts. I'm not even getting into broad daylight murders.
  • How silly the cops were made to look.
  • The sporadic humor.
