FilmCastPlussesMinussesVerdict

Kites
Hrithik Roshan, Barbara Mori, Kangna Ranaut, Kabir Bedi, Nicholas BrownHrithik RoshanPredictable and cliched screenplayHad a fantastic opening weekend: Excellent paid previews on Thursday [approx. Rs. 1.75 cr.], superb Friday [approx. Rs. 10.4 cr.], very good Saturday, although it declined a bit [approx. Rs. 8.6 cr.] and fantastic Sunday [approx. Rs. 9.75 cr.]. The opening weekend total stands at approx. Rs. 30.5 cr. nett. Business at multiplexes was strong, but single screens saw large drops. However, the reports are negative and as per early indications, the film witnessed a substantial drop in business on Monday. The film has cost its distributors an exorbitant amount and at the rate the business has started sliding downwards, they would incur heavy losses on this one
