May 17, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Indian Bollywood film-maker Anurag Basu's eagerly anticipated movie KITES (2010) with an international cast has a release date of May 21, 2010.

South American actress Barbara Mori plays the lead female role of Natasha against Bollywood hero Hrithik Roshan (Jay) in Kites. The film is said to be inspired by the Bollywood classic Ek Duje Ke Liye (DVD) starring Kamal Hasan, Rati Agnihotri, Madhavi and Sunil Thapa, Hrithik and Barbara's characters are said to commit suicide at the conclusion of Kites.

Kites also stars Kabir Bedi, Kangana Ranaut, Nicholas Brown and others. The film has been specially edited by Brett Ratner for an English "remix" version to be released in North America. Officially billed as “A Brett Ratner Presentation,” Ratner’s version of Kites is, as its title suggests, a true “remix,” in that it is the same film, played to a different rhythm, running a swift 90 minutes as opposed to the 130–minute original. One of the leading action directors working in the industry today, Ratner is credited with taking Asian action star Jackie Chan and crossing him over into American super-stardom with his spectacularly successful Rush Hour series. In much the same way, Kites: The Remix will target younger, hipper, more action-oriented crowd than the original. Besides playing different theaters and neighborhoods, it will also take on additional screens at many of the same multiplexes that will be playing the original version as of May, 21, an unprecedented strategy that will present an alternative to fans who want to see more—and less—of the film at the same time.

Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide, writes about Kites, "A passionate affair leads to danger and excitement for two young lovers with nothing to lose. J (Hrithik Roshan) was left to die in the Mexican desert. Handsome and resourceful, he's one step ahead of certain death when Natasha (Barbara Mori) blows into his life like an electrical storm. In a flash, he's smitten. Somehow, despite the deep cultural and language barriers that separate them, J and Natasha form a powerful connection. But Natasha is engaged to another man, a powerful figure who's none-too-pleased that his prize got away, and who would rather see her dead than in the arms of another man. Perhaps if J and Natasha can just manage to escape, they can find a place to start over, and begin a new life together."
