Well, it’s official. The new Bollywood film Kites (we blogged about its release last weekend), is a record breaker. Hrithik Roshan’s new action-romance adventure is the first Bollywood film to debut in the North American top 10 on opening weekend. And it’s not just the U.S. In India, the Rakesh Roshan-produced film soared to the second biggest opening day gross in history, and in the UK, the film opened at number five.
Released by Reliance Big Pictures, Kites has received praise and the most number of mainstream reviews ever for a Bollywood film on opening day. And this Friday, May 28, a new version of the film presented by director Brett Ratner, Kites – The Remix, will open in select theaters. Kites – The Remix ups the ante on the action and runs 90 minutes in length.
If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t miss this romp of a film, starring Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan and Japanese-Uruguayan-Mexican actress Barbara Mori. To find a theater near you, click here.
