Singapore-based Dr. Siddhant Arya recruits a superhumanly powerful Indian-born man named Rohit Mehra, who was given special powers by a blue-skinned alien named Jadoo, to build a computer that can forecast the future, which results in an accident that kills Rohit. When this news reaches Rohit's mother, Sonia, in India, she passes this on to Rohit's wife, Nisha, who has just given birth to a son named Krishna. However, Nisha, unable to handle this devastating news, passes away, leaving Krishna to be brought up by Sonia. When Krishna is enrolled in school, she notices that he has the same intellectual and physical powers that his father possessed, so in order to shield him from any harm, she moves to a secluded and remote area in a mountainous region of the country, where he grows up. Years later, Krishna has matured, has acquired the same special powers that his father had, and is also able to communicate with animals. He meets with a camper named Priya and is attracted to her.

Did You Know?


Amrita Rao was the first choice for the role of Priya, but Rakesh Roshan saw Priyanka Chopra's performance in a special screening of Aitraaz (2004) and was so impressed that he decided to cast her instead. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was also considered for the role. See more »


The computer that Rohit Mehra invents is coded with a password that is Rohit's retina and heartbeat. Scientists which could analyze his research to the extent that they completely rebuild the whole computer would realize how he encoded those in the computer, ultimately not needing those at all. Also, the new computer would not have those two things as code anyway; it would simply be without any code. See more »

New Concept for a Bollywood movie
27 August 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A new concept for an Indian film, thus kudos to Mr rohan for making such a brave effort. Of all the Indian superhero movies made so far, i would say this was perhaps the least worst. People say it is copied and what not (then again we've all come to expect that of most bollywood films), but the fact is that the movie lacked general direction and purpose, thus a lot of the scenes were a drag. In addition, the plot seemed to be non-existent, and the sub plot was very weak. a movie with very general ideas that requires viewers to turn a blind eye to various plot holes. for example, kirsh and his father, despite a whole generation gap, seemed to be living in the same time period. even though i tried my best to watch the whole movie, it got too mind-numbingly boring thus i had to walk out about two thirds of the way through. and off the 4 people i sat down to watch the movie with, only 1 managed to see the whole thing. i found out from them what happens in the end, and by the sounds of things, i am very glad i walked out and saved myself and hour. Overall, this movie robbed me of two hours of my life which i shall never get back. still 3 very generous points awarded for the effort.
