Okay, Okay, I admit it, this movie is A LOT like ET. But with all due respect to Mr. Spielberg, (whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration for) I like this one better. First of all, the kids aren't quite as bratty and mean. They pull a few mischievous pranks and parents be warned the munchkins do beat up some grownups. I'll be tossing out a few lectures to my Nephews and the soon-to-be-born Niece about how such behavior WILL NOT fly with their Auntie so they shouldn't bother.
Second, Jadoo is so much cooler than ET. Not because he's cute, blue, and a little like the tadpole in that old children's show Gulla Gulla Island, but because he has such a distinct personality. You don't have to depend on the human's actions and reactions to know what Jadoo's all about.
Third, ET doesn't have Rohit. Once again the Jr. Roshan has cooked up a bit of enchantment. Yes, dad is responsible too but I'll get to him later. To be fair there is ONE other actor who could have pulled this off well, and that's Aamir Khan. Still, I can't imagine anyone else in this role.Read more ›
KOI...MIL GAYA tells the story of Rohit (Hrithik Roshan), a mentally retarded young man. Rohit is raised by his loving and fiercely protective mother (Rekha). But his subpar intelligence allows him to feel only comfortable in the company of children, his school mates, in fact. A child in a man's body, Rohit is considered a freak and is often dismissed by his teachers and accosted by bullies, none more relentless than Raj, the cocky, bike riding son of the district magistrate. Things come to a head between Raj and Rohit with the arrival of the beautiful Nisha (PreityZinta), who befriends Rohit, to Raj's displeasure.
After several musical interludes, wherein this friendship is cemented, Rohit and Nisha goof around and activate a computer which belonged to Rohit's scientist father, who had been attempting to make contact with extra terrestrial life forms. Sho nuff, it's not long before the aliens respond and then come for a visit. The space ship (nicely rendered by CG) kills off electrical power, appears in the sky line, hovers, lands somewhere, and then takes off. But they strand one of their own, who soon has an encounter with Rohit.Read more ›
Apart from this I'm giving 5 stars just for Hrithik's performance as the developmentally retarded young adult. It is one of the best renditions of someone 'different' by someone adult and of normal intellect I've seen - and he doesnt skip a beat. I see recently that he was a special child/adolescent himself but under treatment for a stammer. His rocket to success in about all movie areas is then even more astonishing. This character needs a warm and open heart and Hrithik's own personality perhaps shines this through well.
Put this together with Dhoom 2 and then Jodha Akbar and you can see what a great acting range he has. Preity Zinta is also very good.
This movie is for the adult with a child in his heart. It relives the sort of ground ET travelled but isn't a copy of that plot. It's a warm enjoyable family movie.
My DVDs quality was fine so there must be variations in versions out there.

I believe I have been spoiled by seeing Hrithik Roshan's outstanding work in "Jodhaa Akbar". Then to, I may be a bit to old for comic book characters. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Beverly Martin
