Poor Kites. The film, that is. The way reviewers have mauled the movie has been savage.
I’ll probably be lynched by a quite a few people and disowned by many of my friends when I say that I quite liked Kites.
It is not like the film is flawless. On the contrary, it is full of them—patchy story line, half-baked characterisation, overacting, underacting, … You must have read the reviews or seen the film to know what I am talking about.
But, in spite of the flaws, it has a redeeming quality that no one can ignore—the beautiful cinematography by Ayanaka Bose. It is sheer poetry.
