While working as a journalist, Veturi got his first break in movies through Dr.K.Viswanath. Later, he would go on to pen hundreds of songs. NT Rama Rao, the legendary actor of Telugu movies, did a number of movies with him.

Kites Review - Hrithik Lip Lock with Barbara - Wallpapers

The much hyped 'Kites' movie may fail to impress the Indian audiences. Nicely shot, but badly scripted 'Kites' had very few elements of entertainment. Rakesh Roshan has miserable to justify the character of 'Jai' (Hrithik Roshan), a poor US-citizen living in posh Las Vegas. He was first shown as con who marries illegal immigrants for just $ 1000 to enable them to get Green Cards. He falls in love with Linda alias Natasha (Barbara Mori), his 11th wife.
A non-existent love story blossoms between the two after Natasha's engagement with Tony, son of a rich Vegas businessman (Kabir Bedi). Hrithik 'falls in love' with 'Gina' (Kangna Rawat), sister of Tony.
The story telling was boring due to lack of rhythm and bad usage of flashbacks. Hrithik's character was confusing. Otherwise a con, 'Jai' falls in love with his 'legal wife' Linda and tries to seduce her a day before her marriage with Tony on the pretext of giving divorce.
Later, Jai and Natasha elopes leading to a long and boring sequence of chase by Tony and his goons. Though the action sequences were shot very nicely, but at places they were overdone. Comedy was completely missing from the script. Hrithik's impressive dance on unimpressive songs was the only consolation for the viewers.
The language was badly used. More than half of the dialogues in the movie were in English or Spanish (with English sub-titles). It seems that this movie has not been made for the Indian audiences as this is definitely not a Hindi movie. The end is more disappointing. In a complete Hindi filmi style, the Spanish character Natasha commits suicide to save herself from the villain Tony. Later, Jai survive's a bullet shot only to commit suicide in the next scene.
We think audience can try this movie, only if they have lot of patience. If i have to rate it, i will give it only one star (for Hrithik's dance(only one bit) and Barbara's looks)

Post a comment about your review!!!.....

Sonam and Rana Daggubati not friends anymore?

Sonam Kapoor and popular south star Rana Daggubati (son of producer Suresh Naidu and the nephew of actor Venkatesh) were friends at a point in time. Rana made his debut early this year in the Telugu film Leader. He makes his B-Town entry with Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maro Dum.
The actress and Rana became friends as their dads have known each other for years. Anil Kapoor has worked in several of D Ramanaidu’s films and the two families are quite close.
Sonam and Rana met for the first time during Milind Deora and Pooja Shetty’s wedding reception in 2008 where they exchanged numbers and stayed in touch. Whenever Rana was in the city, he would try and catch up with Sonam.
However, their friendship didn’t last too long. Even though there was nothing romantic between the two, the actress was a bit perturbed after she heard that Rana had a long-standing history of befriending girls and then pulling a disappearing act. After that Sonam took a step back and downgraded him from a friend to an acquaintance.
A source reveals, "When Rana and Sonam were friends, everyone thought their friendship might develop into something more. However, that never happened."
Sonam however maintains that they are still friends. She says, "Rana is a family friend and a brother."
