If as the mentally challenged Rohit Mehra of Koi... Mil
Gaya, he had you in tears, as the dashing and darling super
hero Krrish, Hrithik will have you on the edge of your seats. And
even as you're moved by his emotional vulnerability, you will cheer
yourself hoarse for his dare devil actions.
The movie starts with child Krishna and the reasons why Rekha
takes him to the village and spreads her protective wings around
her super gifted grandson. Hrithik's race with the horse in the
initial reels sets the tempo for an adrenaline rush one is supposed
to experience throughout the movie.
The first hour of the film is interspersed with comic scenes on
how Krrish instills fear in Priya (Priyanka Chopra) and her group
(while they are on a vacation in India) and later falls in love
with her. Some scenes of Koi... Mil Gaya appear in a
flashback to show the continuity between the two versions.
Some scenes deserve a mention here
- Krrish saving Priya in the initial reels.
- Krrish displaying his skills to collect money for the
- Priya asking Krrish to climb a pole faster than an Orang
Utan called Mao
- The motorcycle fight sequence
- The Circus Scene
There are only four songs in the movie - two before the
intermission and two afterwards. Dil Na Diya stands out
for its superb choreography and picturization.
And there's a surprise element as well in the movie and we are
not going to reveal it... It comes as a shock to the viewer and at
the point where Hrithik is at the airport, all set to return back
to his village from Singapore.
The movie belongs to Hrithik Roshan from start to end. Bollywood
had heroes till now. But now we have a superhero in a true
Bollywood sense. Krrish proves that not all superheroes
(read Spiderman, Superman etc) are made in America. India
has one as well.
