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 disabled girl.
- 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.
