Editorial Reviews

Scientist Sanjay Mehra devises a computer that is capable of contacting aliens. His happiness is cut short when the scientists at a space-research center scoff at him and refuse to believe his claims. While returning home with his pregnant wife, he glimpses an alien spaceship, and, in the resulting confusion, he cannot control his car, leading to a crash. His wife survives but their unborn child suffers brain damage. Years later, their son Rohit Mehra has grown up but has thinking capacity of a child. He befriends the town Mayor's daughter Nisha, which angers Nisha's suitor Raj, a spoiled brat. One day, Rohit and Nisha find Rohit's father's computer in his shed and follow the instructions provided. That very evening, their town is paid a visit by an alien spaceship that lands someplace nearby and takes off shortly afterward. But when the police inspect the footprints, they discover that one of the aliens has been left behind. Then Rohit and Nisha find the alien, name him Jadoo, and watch as their lives slide into virtual chaos.

Okay, after flirting with the idea of trying to curb the obsession rapidly taking control of my life I've submitted to a severe relapse. Forget the Borg when it comes to Hrithik Roshan, "Resistance is Futile." The only thing to do is sit back and just let it ride. Anyway my only vices are films, music, and chocolate. At least This won't make me fat. Okay, I'm not sure why but I kept tearing up all through this movie. Even more so than when I watch Guzaarish (English Subtitles) I think it's because I start crying from the happy moments and the heartbreaking ones.

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.

So, this is what a Bollywood sci-fi musical is like. Not bad. KOI...MIL Gaya (translates to "I Found Someone") may be 2 hours and 45 minutes long, but it's worth investing the time to see it. Yes, absolutely, it draws from movies the likes of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE 3RD KIND, CHARLY, and even THE ABSENT MINDED PROFESSOR, and, in the case of E.T., even plagiarizes it. Nevertheless, KOI...MIL GAYA ends up being charming and involving, thanks largely to the film's not-so-secret ingredient, Hrithik Roshan, Bollywood's biggest heartthrob. Roshan again proves that not only is he a buff, good looking guy with an arsenal of dance moves, he can act, too.

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.

I guess it's hard to conceive an adorable alien that also seems real. They did their best and have gone for cute but the whole blue thing is a bit cutesy.
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 was surprised. I really liked it. It's a bit hokey at times, and the ending didn't make the most sense, but the acting was top notch. I certainly felt more emotion from the characters than I do with most Hollywood movies. I especially like how much the movie just embraced the culture of the characters and was not afraid to include some religious dialogue. It wasn't anything preachy, but religion was obviously an important part of the society the characters lived in and the screenwriters were not afraid to show that the main characters were devout. Compared to American movies where religion in entertainment is practically taboo (unless you're lampooning it), this was very refreshing, even if the characters and I didn't share the same religion. The subtitles were pretty readable. I hope they bring more of these Bollywood movies to America and English speaking audiences. Remind them that it's good acting, well written dialogue, and thought provoking story that makes a good movie, not sex and explosions.
