Quick Movie Review: PK

Image courtesy: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/82ZEDGPCkT8/maxresdefault.jpgWhen you’re going for a Vidhu Vinod Chopra and a Rajkumar Hirani film – it is not just a ‘movie’, it is an experience, an unforgettable journey.

It’s like going to your favourite friend’s house for chai because apart from the best chai that’s offered to you, the company of that person is so good that you don’t want the conversations to end.

That’s the effect that lingers on after watching a Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani films.

Amir Khan always outdoes his earlier performances. While I was utterly disappointed with his role in ‘Dhoom 3’ where I personally felt that as one of the finest actors of our country it was a role not meant for him as he’s capable of so much more and thankfully PK proved that for me.

I loved the film PK. It’s based on a topic that has been dealt with in several films earlier but this one’s a little different.

Don’t view the film as Amir Khan (over)acting weird with raised eyebrows, but see the world through the eyes of PK and you will understand his dilemma and helplessness. And he is not over acting and you will see why!

It makes you rethink on some of our blind followings, customs and beliefs through a ‘different’ perspective. PK’s innocent questions on faith, religion and god and blind beliefs will make you laugh and ponder.

Anushka Sharma’s and Sushant Singh Rajput’s chemistry is flawless and brilliant. They look believable and contemporary as a couple. Their romance is beautiful and poetic.

Boman Irani is fantastic as a boss, Saurabh Shulka does justice to his role of a godman and Sanjay Dutt as a delightful friend to PK.

The film does get preachy somewhere, but you won’t mind that. Now every time you get the feeling that any of God’s ‘managers’ are taking you for a ride – shout out loud ‘Wrong Number’. 😀

Lessons learnt by PK from our human race apart from learning how to ‘lie’ for a good cause, we must learn to love and let go and pick a new Indian language even if it is Bhojpuri as long as the message of peace and brotherhood is delivered.

Thank you team ‘PK’ for putting up such a brilliant piece together and giving us some food for thought.

Genre: Comedy/ Drama

Music: PK has some really nice soulful music. It is a treat to listen to Sonu Nigam and Shaan sing some beautiful numbers that linger on…especially the romantic song ‘Char Kadam’.

Paisa Vasool: Totally! 😀
