Woohoo... PK is finally here and boy was I excited to watch this masterpiece on the big screen. After five years of sheer hard-work Rajkumar Hirani presented us with yet another cinematic brilliance, PK. 80% of the credit goes to the director for spinning this innovative concept into such an entertaining movie.
The movie has it all, a good plot, script, depth; an out of the box film with a strong message.
Director: Rajkumar Hirani
Much had been debated about the film's plot. Is PK an astronaut, is he an alien or is he a con artist? What is PK movie all about? Much till the screening of the film, the plot had not been revealed, so this may come as a surprise to you, but PK is not an out and out comedy film like how it has been portrayed till date.
The film has a lot of hilarious and fun moments but the hidden social message is what PK is all about. In a way you can say the movie is a satire on God and God fearing men. But it is unlike any typical Bollywood movie that had been based on the same concept as Hirani has ensured to provide us with utmost entertaining experience with this movie.
The plot of the movie starts with an interesting entry by Aamir Khan, if I reveal that you might as well not watch the movie. The second entry is of Jaggu (Anushka Sharma), a Indian journalism student in Bruges, Belgium falling in love with a Pakistani boy, Sarfaraz (Sushant Singh Rajput).
Her parents don't approve of this inter-religion love and like the prediction of a 'Tapasvi' (Saurabh Shukla), she gets her heart broken. Dejected she returns to her hometown in India and starts working for a news channel and one fine day she comes across PK (Aamir Khan), a unique and peculiar boy who is fascinated with the many things that happen in our society including the many Gods we pray and the many religions that exist.
His wacky dressing sense and lifestyle is a result of him making do of whatever he finds in the dancing car, wondering what it is? Watch the movie and you'll know the meaning of "The Dancing Car".
PK is different and as a result has several questions in his mind which happen to intrigue Jaggu as well. Both of them set out on this journey to get all his questions answered by the tapasvi so that he returns something of PK that is very precious to the latter, this forms the crux of the story.
Now to know what importance Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjay Dutt, Boman Irani and Saurabh Shukla have in the movie and to know what relation they have with "Namuna or Sample", as Jaggu lovingly calls PK, you have to go watch the movie buddy!
I know I am just stating the obvious but Aamir Khan does steal the show with his tube-light eyes and saucer ears, his funny yet perfect Bhojpuri accent and his weird character stands out in the film. There are truly no words to describe his performance and like his daughter and Sachin Tendulkar said, this is his best performance till date.
Anushka Sharma too has essayed her charismatic but cute journalist role well, the short hair looks really good on her. Her love chemistry with Sushant and friendly chemistry with Aamir has been balanced really well.
Boman has a short and sweet role which he has done justice to, even Sanjay Dutt's guest appearance is worth the watch for it bears an important link to the story but we don't approve of Sushant's short role and yearn for the opportunity to see him more.
The story-line of the movie is captivating and there is not a dull moment in the span of 2 hours and 33 minutes. Hirani sneaks upon on you through plenty surprising moments.
The music has been composed by Shantanu Moitra, Ajay-Atul, Ankit Tiwari and Ram Sampath, who have all done a brilliant job with the songs, they stay on your mind and are in perfect sync with the story-line.
The dialogues by Abhijaat Joshi and Rajkumar Hirani are funny and entertaining too. The crisp narration keeps us engrossed in the movie. All in all there is not much to complain about but a whole lot of aspects to praise.
PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure. PK is a must and should theater watch, so book you tickets soon and catch the movie on the big screen.
Here is what the Indian celebrities had to say about the movie...

"The film is superb. I have promised Aamir so I won't disclose much about the story. But I would like to say that all of you please go and watch this film as it is completely different. For me it's the best film and best performance of Aamir that I have ever seen. His role in the film is completely different. It is completely out-of-the box film with a very strong message. It is a must watch film. Without any doubt it is his best performance."
