Koi Mil Gaya Story
The movie begins with Sindhi Canadian scientist Sanjay Susra Mehra (Rakesh Roshan) creating a computer that is capable of contacting aliens. He creates many variations of the syllable “Om” in order to attract the attention of extraterrestrial life. Finally one day, he receives a response and hurries to the space-research center to inform the scientists only to be scoffed at. Humiliated, he returns back home along with his pregnant wife, Sonia (Rekha). On the way, he notices an alien spaceship in his vicinity resulting in an accident due to the confusion.
Sanjay throws Sonia out of the car and dies on the spot. Sonia survives and returns back to India; however the unborn child suffers brain damage. Sonia delivers a baby boy, Rohit, albeit with serious mental disabilities. Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) grows up to a young man with limited intellect and childish personality. Nonetheless, he has a loving heart, some good young friends with whom he spends most of his time. Enters Nisha (Preity Zinta), who is instantly befriended by Rohit and his friends. Soon, Nisha learns about Rohit’s mental disability from Sonia and feels sympathy for him.
Rohit and Nisha become friends and share a good rapport. They find the old computer made by Sanjay and accidentally call in the aliens. The aliens visit the city but leave back one alien. Rohit finds the alien and hides him in his house. Nisha and Rohit’s friends too come to know about the new alien and name him ‘Jadoo’. Jadoo treats Rohit of his mental disability by using his magic thereby transforming Rohit into a normal adult. Raj (Nisha’s suitor), along with his buddies make several attempts to embarrass Rohit, but thanks to Jadoo, Rohit manages to overcome all situations with his ‘new’ mental caliber.
Rohit and Nisha get closer to each which results in Rohit proposing marriage to Nisha who readily agrees. Meanwhile, the government comes to know about the alien that was left back. They narrow their search to Jadoo who is protected by Rohit. He helps Jadoo to get back to his spaceship using Sanjay’s Om computer. Jadoo flees but Rohit again turns mentally disabled. However, Rohit is restored back with the special abilities that Jadoo has conferred upon him. The movie ends on a happy note with Rohit and Nisha patching up together.
