Movie Review: Kites

A little late to be writing this review, but who cares?

Some highlights of Kites - The Patangs:
1. There are places in the movie where 10-15 mins go by and nothing has really happened.

2. Mori is not beautiful. Most of our Indian film actresses are better looking than her. She has been chosen for other "qualities".

3. Hritik gets beat up/shot frequently. And you don't care.

4. You actually wish Kangana had a bigger part even if she is playing her standard "mentally disturbed person" role (Nana Patekar and Kangana don't have to act nowadays - they play themselves in all movies and get paid too).

5. The best part of the movie is when it gets over.

6. This is an "international standards" movie, but no person from any nation might like it.

7. They can save money and make many "MacroMan" ads by using sections of this movie.

Worst "classic" movies to see before you die (Hindi)

There are classic movies, that are praised by everyone (e.g. Gone With The Wind). And then there are the other type of "classic" movies - ones after seeing that you can't imagine why they were made in the first place.

These I call as the worst "classic" movies to see before you die.

I can proudly say that I have lasted through the
Gunda (Mithunda) --> Family movie - provided each family member sees it

separately! Has characters whose names you can't take in public. See
movie should be part of the "10 classic worst movies to see before you
list. Words fail me ...

2.  Jaani Dushman - Ek Anokhi Kahani (Terminator
+ Punarjanam+ Iccha dhari
saap + ... )  --> All time entertaining movie -
you can see it at any point
in the movie and still enjoy the

3.  Clerk (Manoj Kumar): Has scenes showing
a) Completely
out-of-shape Manoj "Bharat" Kumar and a grossly overweight
Shashi Kapoor as
college students
b) Curing heart attack with 2 battery cells - scientific
breakthrough!! -->

are others. But if you manage to last through all these 3, you will find any
movie good!!
