Kites movie scene

Barbara Mori slips into something more comfortable in the Bollywood adventure Kites.

Image Entertainment released the popular Bollywood adventure/romance/musical Kites on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 15, 2011.

Indian superstar Hrithik Roshan stars in the movie as J, a Las Vegas hustler engaged to the daughter of the city’s most ruthless casino owner. But he has fallen in love with the beautiful Natasha (international sex symbol Barbara Mori), an illegal immigrant engaged to J’s violent and volatile future brother-in-law. When their secret is discovered, J and Natasha — taking a gamble on luck and love — flee for the border … and the chase is on!

Directed by Indian filmmaker Anurag Basu, the 2010 film was reportedly released on 2,000 screens in India and some 500 screens globally, including more than 200 screens in North America, making it one of the biggest Bollywood releases to date.

The Kites DVD and Blu-ray each contain two versions of the film: the full-length original version and Kites: The Remix, a more Westernized (read: sexier!) English-language version produced for the U.S. by filmmaker Brett Ratner (Red Dragon).

Kites is available in a two-DVD set for a list price of $27.97 and on Blu-ray for $29.97.
