"Its a love story, no thriller, no mayb action!!".. the rumours behind the script of the much anticipated flick "Kites" will be unraveled this Friday (21st may) as the movie gears up for its big fat (literally!) Indian release.
Hrithik Roshan had never heard of Barbara Mori. The latter claims to have never viewed a bolly film previously. Nonetheless destiny got the two of them paired for a mega-budget venture worth Rs.150 crore in three versions - English, Hindi and Spanish. (gladly, we ain't complaining!) The music has been well accepted, breezy numbers without any loud strident influences, to suit the theme & pace of the movie.
The pre-release buzz, marketing hype in totality have worked well for the movie with trade pundits clearly touting this one as a bigger hit than 3idiots. So much so that some cinemas have a 6:30am show to cash in on the oppurtunity.
The reactions to the premiere held in US & UK earlier this week have been phenomenal with traffic halting at the Times Square, impromptu arrangements for extra fans to be accomodated at the AMC Empire theatre and women screaming, threatening suicides(wtf?!?!) to catch a glimpse of the leading man.
On that note, I leave you with a pic of the man himself from the london premiere. CAN IT GET ANY HOTTER THAN THIS??
