Take my word, watch KMG!

To all those who doubted the chameleon-like acting abilities of Hrithik, here is the undeniable proof. Koi... Mil Gaya sees him playing the role of an underdeveloped child. As a retard, he brings a combination of factors to play on his performance.
First of all, if you did not know better, you probably would not notice Hrithik, the star. The costume department, coupled with his hairdresser, dresses him as a unique personality and sharp eyes bring an intensity to his performance as the underdeveloped child.
Hrithik's cries of help to Krishan Bhagwan bring out the pathos of the situation and make the audience sympathise with Hrithik. This adds to the anticipation of the audience of wanting someone to come to his help!
This brings us to the other part of the movie regarding his involvement with outer space.
I would not like to say more than it fits in well with the storyline. But even the die hard skeptics would enjoy the convincing visual effects.
Okay, so you say 'but I am not a baby and this story is too off beat for me.' Still, take my word and see this film. You will come out believing in hope and friendship and will enjoy an encore performance by Hrithik, especially when he sets the dance floor on fire with his brilliant moves.
Though there are some weak links in the story that defy logic like the way the Canadian scientists do not even bother to look at the facts logically and summarily dismiss Rakesh Roshan. Yet, one can always relate to this too, as how many times do we feel we are not understood at our work place!
