Main Krishna Hoon Review: Here is a fun story targeted to and completely appropriate for a child audience, yet intelligently written and engaging enough for adults, too.
“Main Krishna Hoon” is a heartwarming tale which ties the rich tradition of ancient Indian culture surrounding the god Krishna with the very real-world challenges of a very real little boy also named Krishna.
One dark and rainy night, the kindly proprietors of a small orphanage – Kantaben (Juhi Chawla) and Nattubhai (Paresh Ganatra) – rescue an abandoned baby boy from the floodwaters. They name him Krishna, because the way they found him parallels the legend of how the god Lord Krishna came to live with his adoptive parents as a baby. Orphan Krishna (Namit Shah) 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. Lord Krishna (animated) then comes to Earth in his mischievous childhood ‘butter thief’ avatar and befriends the young orphan Krishna. Many adventures then ensue, as Krishna-from-Heaven helps Krishna-from-Earth discover his family.
Adults will particularly enjoy how ingeniously two real-world Hindi film superstars – first Katrina Kaif, later Hrithik Roshan – are cleverly worked into the story in 5-minute appearances as their actual selves.
But throughout “Main Krishna Hoon”, experienced children’s director Rajiv S. Ruia (the “My Friend Ganesha” movie series) keeps the focus on children and completely child-friendly for all ages.
Hindi cinema badly needs more good movies for children, which their parents can also enjoy. “Main Krishna Hoon” delivers!
