After reading about Hrithik Roshan, Bollywood's hottest movie star in GQ magazine, I was truly amazed at his popularity in his native India. I later watched the dvd release of KNPH, Hrithik Roshan's first hit movie. Directed by his father, this spirited romp is actually a made-to-order showcase for his handsome and talented son. Suffice to say that this film would have been very average, save for Hrithik Roshan who carries the entire production on his able shoulders. His charm and intense style are certainly enough to catch the interest of most any movie-goer.
Much of the movie is devoted to loving shots of Hrithik in various poses, and I'm certain that the female audiences in Mumbai were swooning in the crowded aisles each time he sang and danced. Much of what occurs on screen looks like a Hindi pop music video made for even pre-teenage audiences. A good comparison would be to the old movies of Elvis Presley! This may have had a bit more realism and action than those, but the entire proceedings focus on Hrithik's singing, dancing, and posing in a way that glamorizes him to that extent. It's obvious that multi-talented Hrithik Roshan could make it big in the U.S. if he so desires. That's the one thing that I will certainly remember out of this somewhat shallow, but lighthearted and colorful movie.
