An abandoned baby boy is rescued from floodwaters by Kantaben and Nattubhai, the kindly proprietors of a small orphanage. They name the baby Krishna, because the way he was found parallels the legend of how the god Lord Krishna came to live with his adoptive parents as a baby. Orphan Krishna lives happily in the orphanage with Kanta and Nattu and the other foundling children. But over the years, as one by one his other friends are adopted out to families but he remains, young Krishna comes to believe that he is unadoptable, unwanted, and will never find a family. In despair, all alone one night he goes to a temple and prays to Lord Krishna. This is the story of how Lord Krishna himself (in his childhood 'butter thief' avatar) comes to Earth and befriends the young orphan Krishna ... and helps him to discover his family.

Say No To Krishna
2 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Rajiv S. Ruia's semi animated semi live action flick 'Main Krishna Hoon' tells the story of an orphanage run by a kind hearted nurturing and loving headmistress Kantaben. In particular, it centers around an orphan called Krishna, who wants to be adopted and have a 'real mom and dad'.

The premise may be promising for a children's film. However, what Ruia makes is completely juvenile. It's very poorly written and executed (almost as bad as those 80's 'so called Bollywood moneyspinners). The editing is dreadful and the songs, with the exception of the one that plays during the opening credit, are horrendous. The animation is abysmal. The less said about it the better. Come on, if you're going to make a children's film, surely one can come up with something better.

The acting by the children is quite bad but the director is to be blamed for this. Cameos by Hritik Roshan and Latrina Kaif are laughably bad. Paresh Ganatra is adequate as Kantaben's assistant (even though he does tend to go overboard at times).

Juhi Chawla is terrific as Kantaben and I couldn't think of a better actor for the role. However, someone of her talent really deserves a much much better film. If there is any reason at all to watch 'Main Krishna Hoon' then it's her.
