His happiness is cut short when the scientists at a space-research center scoff at him and refuse to believe his claims. While returning home with his pregnant wife, he glimpses an alien spaceship, and, in the resulting confusion, he cannot control his car, leading to a crash. His wife survives but their unborn child suffers brain damage. Years later, their son Rohit Mehra has grown up but has thinking capacity of a child. He befriends the town Mayor's daughter Nisha, which angers Nisha's suitor Raj, a spoiled brat. One day, Rohit and Nisha find Rohit's father's computer in his shed and follow the instructions provided. That very evening, their town is paid a visit by an alien spaceship that lands someplace nearby and takes off shortly afterward.

I am generally averse to any of the Bollywood movies inspired by Hollywood - they end up half-baked dodo's. How-ever after having watched Koi Mil Gaya I must admit that::
01. Bollywood comes to technological age
02. Hritik stands above the story and script
Hritik gets into the skin of the character and delivers a mind-blowing performance which patches up for the flaws in the movie and all the rant critics had about being inspired from dozens of Hollywood movies. We truly have an actor who is dedicated and perfection is his ultimate goal.
Undoubted the movie is inspired from E. T, Independence Day, Forrest Gump, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and Jack but doesn't appear force-fit and nicely blend into actual storyline. It appears that Rakesh Roshan and Hritik Roshan acted as perfect reality- check for each other. Roshan's should be lauded for the risk they undertook and it has paid off indeed.
As in E. T., I was expecting the alien to steal the show - but I guess Hritik proved to be strong competitor.
Rekha fulfills her dream of being Hritik's mother (which she claimed at Awards shows, a few years ago!). And Rakesh Roshan must have fulfilled his dream of playing screen-father. Preity Zinta was good.
Songs always have been the forte' of Rakesh Roshan movie - thanks to brother Rajesh Roshan. This time around Chitra gets a break. Dances need a special mention.
SFX are okay - by Bollywood standards. And Johnny Lever needs a major overhaul - please learn a thing or two from Paresh Rawal.
With stupendous success of KMG, I was expecting a trend of sci-fi movies in Bollywood but I guess the hamlet still fears to tread the path less-traveled.
Rejoice - we have had a beginning..... and a good one!
