The crisscross of commitments and relationships is achieved in an easygoing sweep of drama and crime. The rest is taken care of by heart-in-the-mouth car chase sequences and stunts that seem to be done with an expertise uncommon to Hindi cinema.
Plenty has been said and written about the chemistry or the lack of it between the fugitive lovers. However looking at a couple for sexual compatibility in a film that seeks to champion empathy and companionship during times of screeching tyres and sanguinary stress is somewhat silly and unjust.
Perhaps if the couple had lived to have children they had promised each other, we’d have seen the sexual frisson .Not this time. Not here. Director Basu has carved the two lovers’ individual death sequences in a fusion celebrating an operatic selfannihilation. Hrithik’s plunge to death reminded me of Kangna Ranaut’s steep fall into death in Anurag Basu’s Gangster. Death becomes the drama.
Ayananka Bose’s cinematography is at times too flashy to underline the protagonists’s passion as seen in the bustle of hedonism. Akiv Ali’s editing specially of the final 20 minutes is evocative and energetic rendering words as redundant as the film’s lovers speaking to one another in two languages that are incomprehensible to one another.
You wish there was more time for the lovers to get to know one another , and for us to watch them grow familiar with each another’s space. Kites does not allow its protagonists or the audience the luxury of familiarity. Hrithik and Barbara zip by and are gone out of sight before we fully absorb or even observe their mutual passion.
And yet stolen moments between the pair lingers long after the deathly denouement. That longish sequence where Hrithik and Barbara,enagaged to marry money show off their luxury goods to one another , underlines the inherent emptiness of a life lived for materialism .
The writing is as clever as the looks and lines that the lovers exchange.Barbara and Hrithik take care of the rest. As said earlier Hrithik carves out a charted course for his character.He is in exceptional shape every which way. Barbara looks somewhat maturer than Hrithik in some scenes. But her vivacity and natural abiltity to grasp the essence of human bonding makes us forget the age factor.
Shot in the most eye-cathing casinos of Las Vegas and the toasted-brown deserts of Mexico Kites is a minor feast for the senses. Yes it has its over-cute annoying interactive moments . But these pass quickly. And we are left with a feeling of having witnessed an exhilarating excursion into a terrain where the heart meets an intersection and swerves dangerously into a self-destructive zone.
Love never seemed more dangerous. Or worth the risk. Go for it.
