Verdict : it's a must watch for all Aamir Khan, Rajkumar Hirani and good cinema lovers. _____________________________________________________________
The movie starts with Jaggu (Anushka Sharma), a journalist student in Bruges, Belgium who after completing her studies and recovering from a failed relationship with her Pakistani lover Sarfaraz (Sushant Singh) comes back to her hometown in India and joins a News Channel,
One fine day, Jaggu happens to see an unusual man called PK (Aamir Khan), who has his own weird ways of dealing with worldly affairs. He is shown as a unique creature having a very quirky style of dressing and a unique way of dealing with day-to-day things. she follows him and comes to know about his story that he is searching for his missing object.
Who is PK ? What is his story and how is it linked with a self obsessed god-man (Saurabh Shukhla)? To know the answers to these questions, you need to watch the film on silver screen. At some points, PK seems quite inspired by Umesh Shukla’s ‘Oh my God’ as Hirani has used the same satirical and amusing style to address the issue however it is much different from what is dealt in OMG.
Aamir Khan, is no doubt a show-stealer. He is stupendous, and it does not mean that rest of the cast not done well. This film required a tough act and he is just brilliant with his expressions and performed his role with ease. Aamir’s funny dance moves, dialogue delivery and mannerisms are all just superb. Budding actors have to just watch his performance and learn a major part of how to go about acting.
Anushka Sharma looks pretty in her new avatar. She is a perfect fit for this film and her chemistry with Aamir is cute. Sushant Singh Rajput and Boman Irani in their short roles have given good performances. Saurabh Shukla as an evil god-man gives a commendable performance. Sanjay Dutt’s cameo is delightful and as usual he gives his best.
Most of the film is humorous and almost all the episodes have been designed well. Even though the film is a laugh riot, it has an underlying social message in it. The racy pace of the movie makes it interesting and the surprise element in the climax leaves you stunned.
Dharm or Religion is a very sensitive and personal matter... so while dealing such subjects all the religions should be treated or say, blamed equally. People should not get a chance to play the blame game. In the film Aamir sticks posters of all Hindu deity being missing and does not stick a single poster of Allah or Jesus being missing, which was wrong.
Secondly, when you are making a clean and complete family entertainer, director should have tried some other option also in place of dancing car. Even the codom explaination scene with Boman was not necessary. And these scenes were not at all the "Requirement" of a script. There could have been better options.
Once the twist unfolds in the second half, the story gets predictable. After an entertaining and racy first half, second half gets slower in parts.
Cinematographer Muraleedharan, who brilliantly showcased the beauty of Ladakh in 3 Idiots, has once again proved his mettle. The Rajasthani deserts, Belgium scenes and songs were shown beautifully. Songs may be just average in album, but they definitely leave a cool impression after seeing them visually and stays with you for a longer time. Editor should have concentrated a little more in the second half.
Dialogue writers need a huge applause as they are quite meaningful. Rajkumar Hirani has once again showed his directorial brilliance. He is just superb in every department and his effortless direction has taken this otherwise a normal film to another level. Even though there is good social message in this film, he presented it in a humorous manner which will definitely leave a good impression on the audience.
P.K. (also spelled Peekay) is an upcoming 2014 Hindi political satire film directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The film is slated to be released on 19th Dec. 2014.Director Hirani has stated that the film will be a satire about "God and godmen".
