Koi Mil Gaya
Cast
: Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Rekha, Prem Chopra, Johnny Lever, Rakesh Roshan (sa).
Director
: Rakesh Roshan
Music
: Rajesh Roshan
Producer
: Rakesh Roshan

Director Rakesh Roshan has introduced aliens to Bollywood in his 'Koi Mil Gaya', partly inspired by Steven Spielberg's classic ET..

The story revolves around Rohit ( Hritik Roshan ) who is a mentally challenged, adult-child who has an encounter with an alien. It all begins when his father Sanjay Mehra ( Rakesh Roshan ) a scientist, researching on existence of life in other planets succeeds in devising a computer that could transmit messages to space. A space ship is sighted as a response to his signals, but when he is as close to reaching his goal, he meets with a tragic accident in which he succumbs to his fate. His pregnant wife Sonia Mehra (Rekha) who survives, gives birth to a sick child Rohit.


Years later, Rohit comes across his father's computer. He asks his only friend Nisha (Priety Zinta) to help him use it. Both of them experiment with the device and then suddenly there is a blackout in the town and a space ship is sighted. A pair of strange footsteps are found in the vicinity and who could it belong to?? Its of a little alien 'Jadoo' who is left behind on earth. The lonely alien meets Rohit and befriends him. 'Jadoo' becomes Rohit's companion and his support against people who ridicule him for his sickness while Rohit in turn take effort to protect the alien from being captured by the authorities on the look out for him..
Technically the film lacks the sheen of a Hollywood counterpart. Neither the alien nor the spaceship is up to the mark. The cinematography is superb and shows off some beautiful locales. Music by Rajesh Roshan gels well with the story line but some of them were not needed. The romance angle between Hritik and Priety should have been developed well to advantage. The screen play and the dialogues are well written in parts and the director has handled the dramatic aspects well. Some of the sequences are well taken. The climax leaves much to be desired. Moreover the part after the alien leaves is unnecessarily lengthy.

Jadoo, the alien is blue in colour, short and has big eyes in a strange shaped head. It communicates in a harsh metallic voice, has a blank expression and have powers that could be transferred to a human. If you don't compare it with the alien in ET which had warm, friendly expressive eyes our Indianised version may be passable.

Performance wise Hritik Roshan as Rohit steals the show. He has done a good job in an extremely challenging role. His innocent, childish and honest portrayal of Rohit is sure to win him a fan following of kids. Preity looks cute and does well whatever is expected of her, which is nothing much. Her character does not utilise her talent. Rekha as Rohit's weepy mother is plausible. The rest of the cast, Prem Chopra as the Collector, Mukesh Rishi as the cop, Johnny lever as the constable, Rajat Bedi as the bully next door who has a soft corner for Priety and Rakesh Roshan as Sanjay Mehra are alright. The 6 kids, who acts as Hritik's friends are natural.

Overall the much hyped film may have a mixed reaction of sorts. It may click well with the kids and it a must see for all Hritik fans.
