After five years, we finally have Rajkumar Hirani’s masterpiece on silver screen through PK and it needs to be mentioned here that the director has taken filmmaking to another level altogether. PK has a depth, which formulates a message that can also be debatable.

The flick slowly pierces a thought into our wits that would remain there for long. We all believe in God and yes there is no question of undermining its power. However, there is a strong condemnation over its presence, which earlier Bollywood movies have made but most of them have been at receiving end.
Here Rajkumar Hirani takes similar subject and treats it in a satirical and amusing mode. Without dissecting the issue, the director effortlessly gives an outcome, which none of us would have ever thought of!
It starts with Jaggu (Anushka Sharma) a journalist student in Bruges, Belguim who after completing her studies comes back to her hometown in India. Here she meets PK (Aamir Khan) who has his own weird techniques to deal with things in society. He is a never seen before any human being and his style of dressing becomes a humorous point of accentuation, his manner of seeing the world is a matter of concern. There are many such unanswered questions by PK which initially become a butt of jokes but on a major scenario it’s debatable.
This catches Jaggu’s attention and she along with PK goes on to find the answers to these peculiar questions. Who is PK, what is his puzzle and why Jaggu finds it interesting? Find it all in this Rajkumar Hirani directorial.

Now while its storyline is fascinating, PK has ample surprises which unfold layer by layer remarkably. But one thing, which needs to be made clear is that PK is not a out an out comedy-caper as its trailer and songs have hinted towards yet carrying the same thought-process while stepping into the theatres won’t disappoint you. While there is a serious subject Rajkumar Hirani is dealing with and his ways of presenting the entire issue turns out to be humorous.
It all goes side by side or rather say there is a parallel journey throughout. With dialogues by Abhijaat Joshi and Rajkumar Hirani himself the narration becomes more gripping and entertaining particularly with Aamir Khan’s Bhojpuri dialect. We won’t reveal as to how the language is inserted in the flick but we tell you it’s an interesting part to know.
While the narration in the movie is water-tight, the performance of the actors seems to be fantastic. There is no way, a movie is fake and pale, when we have Boman Irani who is hailed in all Hirani’s films or National Award winning Saurabh Shukla.
Saurabh is playing the role of a self-styled Godman and the director never misses a chance to take a dig and intentionally mock such real-life characters spread across the society.
Boman Irani’s short appearance in the movie is crucial but it provides an essential link to the events happening around. Sanjay Dutt’s cameo is too delightful.
Sushant Singh Rajput, is wrapped up in the first half. We wish, Hirani could’ve used more of him. Anushka Sharma as a curious journalist is great while her friendly chemistry with Aamir Khan is amusing and captivating.

And do we need to mention that Aamir Khan is the show-stealer? The actor masterfully and magnificently delivers a tough act in the flick. More than his words it’s his expressions, which add volume. There is a big surprise around his character, which is cleverly written and wonderfully performed.
Music by Shantanu Moitra, Ajay-Atul, Ankit Tiwari and Ram Sampath plays important part in the movie which is beautiful. The background score is finely jelled with frames while songs which might not have received much attention till now will stay in your wits after you step out of theatres.
Chaar Kadam by Shaan in our favorite from the album.
