The original version of KITES is released the week before BRETT RATNER PRESENTS KITES: THE REMIX. KITES is about the eventful and unpredictable story of 'J' (Hrithik Roshan) and Linda (Barbara Mori). A couple on the run, they are deeply in love and quickly running out of time.
KITES centres around two immigrants, one from India and one from Mexico, who are both navigating life in North America in pursuit of their dreams. Destiny unites them through the most unexpected twist of fate, which culminates in a mortally wounded man being left for dead in the harsh terrain of the Mexican desert. The man is 'J', but barely recognizable as the once carefree and street-smart trickster that he was. The only thing now keeping him alive is his quest to reclaim the love of his life - 'Linda'.
KITES is the widest ever release for any Indian film production to date and heralds a new milestone in international filmmaking. The film is directed by Anurag Basu (LIFE IN A METRO, GANGSTER), one of the most forward-thinking directors to emerge from India, fearless in his vision of breaking the conventions associated with Indian filmmaking. KITES stars Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan (JODHAA AKBAR, KOI...MIL GAYA), one of India's most idolised artists who sets screens ablaze with the on-screen chemistry he shares with smouldering Mexican beauty, Barbara Mori (LA MUJER DE MI HERMANO, VIOLANCHELO), 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 (KAHO NAA...PYAAR HAI, KOI...MIL GAYA), with haunting ensemble tracks composed by Rajesh Roshan.
