The main plot of the movie is taken from Paycheck,
otherwise the rest of the movie is not same.
In Paycheck Ben Affleck creates a computer that can see
future for a company in return for a huge sum of money.

the computer by the one who hired him to create the computer.
So he sabotages (not completely as in Krrish) it and plans
his escape from the impending death. Later the machine is
restored and is used by the villain for killing the hero.
In Krrish, Hrithik (father) creates the future looking
computer and in that he sees his murder. He immediately
destroys the computer. Here villain captures him and recreates
the computer, which takes 20 years. Then his son comes to
rescue him. Villain sees that in the recreated computer
and tries to murder his son.
The computer and its operation also looked quiet similar
in both the movie.
Movie also uses method of navigating the computer that
reminds that of Tom Cruise's handling of the computer in
Also poster and clothing of Krrish is very much similar
to the poster and clothing of Underworld (2003).
