What to Know

Critics Consensus

Thoroughly overwrought in true Bollywood fashion, Kites is deeply flawed -- and too effervescently charming to resist.

Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express After Life In A Metro, you would have thought [Anurag] Basu's considerable story-telling skills could have only have ratcheted up. But both for him, and for [Hrithik] Roshan, who comes out after three years, Kites is a good-looking disappointment. Rated: 2/5 Apr 16, 2019 Full Review Anil Sinanan Time Out The technically accomplished result is cheesy, engaging but unmemorable 'time-pass' Rated: 2/5 Oct 21, 2017 Full Review Lisa Tsering Hollywood Reporter Roshan anchors the film with a solid, believable performance and a palpable chemistry with his co-star that will remind audiences just how hot a good Bollywood romance can be. Jul 6, 2010 Full Review Nikhat Kazmi The Times of India Sadly, it flounders even before it can take off and soar. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 28, 2020 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens Power, passion, revenge, heartbreak, heartache, tragedy, joy, lust, and love. Let yourself soar with KITES and a love that knows no boundaries, no barriers, a love that is eternal. Rated: 5/5 Nov 6, 2019 Full Review Itrath Syed Georgia Straight Instead of being moved by the story, I was thinking more about the many illogical plot points in the film.

Tithi C Watched after 14 years and 2 months after it was released. I was obsessed with the songs since I was in 5th standard. Don't know why it took me so many years to watch this film for the first time. But it was worth watching the movie. Loved the roller coaster ride of joy, love, action, revenge, and tragedy. ❤️🥰 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/18/24 Full Review Audience Member First word came to my mouth is WOW.... Amazing...not a typical bollywood movie and movie ending also not the same as bollywood ever did. It's a worth to watch, movie never disappoint you at any point, romantic ,thriller action, if someone say it's a worst I wanna tell them dude I think your taste is different and you are watching wrong movie, great story by Rakesh Roshan and director anurag basu hot are always awesome. I'm telling about a story just go and watch.. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Ahmed M SPOILERS AHEAD, CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN WILL AND RISK While the film is okay the ending leaves some of the audience (like myself) disappointed. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/30/16 Full Review Audience Member loved it great action and passion. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Stunning movie I just don't give a damn about what the film critics say Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A gut-wrenching saga that hits a low due to its somewhat broken buildup.
