Released in June 2006, Krrish is Rakesh Roshan's sequel to Koi Mil Gaya - Bollywood's first sci-fi movie. Koi Mil Gaya was the story of Rohit - a special boy with special needs, who after making contact with a UFO (Jadoo, meaning Magic) suddenly gains the power to be a 'normal' child like everyone else. Naturally, there was a love interest, Nisha played by Preity Zinta.
In the sequel to Koi Mil Gaya, Krrish is the story of Krishna - the child of Rohit and Nisha. After his parents die, Krishna grows up taking care of his grandmother (Rekha). Growing up, he soon realizes that he has inherited the superpowers that were transferred to his father by Jadoo. The film shows how Krishna deals with his powers and saves the world from a mad scientist, Dr Arya (Naseeruddin Shah)
...and of course, since this is Bollywood, there is a romantic plot where Krishna falls in love with Priya (Priyanka Chopra) who plays a tourist visiting Singapore - where the film is set.
Last week I watched Superman Returns. It was fantastic - I thoroughly enjoyed it, considering the fact that I don't usually enjoy action flicks like that.
I think it's awesome that Bollywood has its own superhero. And who better to play it than my #1 hunk, Hrithik Roshan!
I can't wait to get my hands on the DVD when it releases.
