PK – Movie Review

“It is easier to find men volunteering to die, rather than one willing to bear pain with patience.” Well, Rajkumar Hirani and his fans come in the second lot. Five years into the making, PK, the much awaited movie is finally here.

With the Dynamic Duo, of Rajkumar Hirani and Amir Khan, together what else, but a blast can be expected? And a blast was delivered, both literally and figuratively, but for the sake of the “SPOILER POLICE”, let’s not dwell on that. A truly comic movie, PK, takes the quintessential “Bolly Twist” to a whole new level.

Well, after waiting for a long, long time, finally a movie without much dwelling on the romantic angle has been delivered. And yes, the movie is truly worthy of the hype generated around it with all those exciting promos. A brilliant storyline, a powerful message and some brilliant acting truly a dream package for any movie.

“Oh My God!” was truly a revolution, bringing in a new theme of movies, mocking the unnecessary divisions and superstitions prevalent in our country. But of course, there were certain weak spots. Well these seem to have been covered pretty well, by PK.
The common, god-fearing Indian, when faced with an outsider, who wishes to KNOW, what this religion is? To know HOW can this person, we call our “father” our “creator” ask us to do something, that is completely out of this world, in his name.

But then as everything does, PK has its weaknesses. A storyline that’s pretty much, “Outta this world”. And a few more inexplicable events.

Finally, those who want something better than 3 Idiots I’d suggest you not waste your money for this movie. Though it provides all the laughs and the harsh realities, there’re something not just REAL enough.
So kudos to Rajkumar Hirani and his excellent team, with great costume design and overall great performances, especially, by Saurabh Shukhla. The collective effort, gets this movie a 7.5 out of 10.

But then if you don’t fall in love with this movie, I’ll only want to ask, “Tu Peekay Hai ke?”
