So this was the prequel to Krrish! I understand why they changed the name, since this really doesn't have anything to do with Krrish. In fact, in this movie Krris doesn't even exist. It's all about Rohit and Jadoo, one human, one alien.
And a girl. And love. Dancing. Friendship. It's pretty much the Bollywood version of ET.
I've outlined this story as a flashback in one of the other reviews, but it's pretty much like this:
A father tries sending signals to space. One day when he and his wife are driving somewhere a UFO comes out of the blue, he looses sight of the road and crashes. Years later (the wife now a widow) Rohit has grown up, but because of the crash he grew up handicapped, mentally, and spends his days hanging out with a bunch of kids and riding a scooter (the kind without a motor).
He meets a girl, he signals a UFO, an alien bestows upon him strange powers and everything seems to be going great until evil forces find out about this cute cuddle little blue alien critter and suddenly he's on a mission to save the world... or at least the alien, and to prove that haminity still exists in this wasteland world!
You are better off watching this without the others, as it's a complete experience in itself. Though maybe Krrish would've made more sense from the start if I'd watched this first... good movie.
rated 3/5: not bad
Did I skim this one the last time I watched it...? Watching again it was much better than I remembered. It might've had it's corny moments, and the sequence where the UFO descends on the highway (beginning of the movie) transitions between light and dark as if it were filmed during different times of day (which it probably was), and the stunts are excessive, and the voices don't match the characters during the song and dance scenes but... it's Bollywood! What would you expect?
All things considered it was a great movie, with a story told well, and a plot that builds along with the characters. Their relations grow as does my liking to them, and the new take on E.T. was refreshing. Alien, excessive, cool. It's got all the plot elements you need, plenty of drama; humor; charm. Romance too. It does start off a bit slow, but picks up nicely, and whether you mind the quirks or not it's hard to not be both entertained and emotionally affected.
If you're not totally new to Bollywood (though who knows - maybe you'll find the differences refreshing), this is a classic by now. Great watch.
Btw, the title's a well-chosen one too. In English: I... Found Someone.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
