kites2010

Kites is a 2010 Bollywood film directed by Anurag Basu and produced by Rakesh Roshan, that stars Hrithik Roshan, Barbara Mori, Kangana Ranaut, and Kabir Bedi. The film was released in India and in North America on May 21, 2010. Its 208-theater opening in North America made it the largest Bollywood release there to that time. It was also the first Bollywood movie to reach the weekend top ten, though My Name is Khan had a larger first-weekend North American gross, with $1.9 million at 120 theaters.

Plot

J., played by Hrithik Roshan, is a dance teacher in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a sideline, he marries immigrant women to get them green cards. When Gina (Kangana Ranaut), the rich daughter of a powerful casino owner (Kabir Bedi), falls for him, J. goes along in order to marry into money. He discovers that his future brother-in-law, the vicious, homicidal Tony (Nick Brown), is about to marry a Mexican woman named Natasha (Barbara Mori), whom J. knows as Linda, the last of the immigrant women he married. On the night before “Natasha” and Tony’s wedding, Linda and J. spend a romantic but chaste night, humorously agreeing to a “divorce.” A jealous, gun-wielding Tony, however, arrives at her apartment while J. is there, and after he hits her, Linda impulsively knocks him out with a heavy object while he tussles with J. Linda and J. go on the run toward Mexico, with Tony and police in pursuit. They are helped by a hotel clerk, Jasleen Grewal. Jasleen gives them fake passports and IDs so that they can go wherever they want. In the following week, J and Linda get married, and on the day of their wedding they come back to their house. There, Robin comes to give them the passports and is unexpectedly shot by Tony and his men. Linda and J escape, but J is shot in the process. In a car chase, Linda stops the car at a train, and puts J aboard it, and drives off. Back to the present, J attends his meeting with Jamaal and is ambushed. Jamaal is killed but not before telling J of Linda’s whereabouts. J kills off all of Tony’s men, and then beat’s Tony by smashing his face into the car door, until he is shot by Gina. He drives off to the location where Jamaal said Linda was last seen. It is shown that after J was put aboard the train, Linda was ambushed on a cliff and sent J the text message saying “I’m going..Forget me”. She drives off of the cliff, killing herself by drowning. J cries, and then smiles, jumping off the cliff as well. Finally, he is reunited with Linda under the ocean, and they embrace through death.
