PK (Hindi); A Magnificent Adventure Of An Alien: Film Review
On Dec 20, 2014
Slapstick wits, comic one liners of Rajkumar Hirani and a baby faced Aamir Khan with bulging eyes. A recipe for outrageous success. Along with that we have a being from another planet stuck in India; facing the wrath of 330 million gods and the age old traditions they are part of. Sounds fun? Truck loads in store.
The movie is no way an alien related science-fiction tale which dabbles in intricacies of science. ‘PK’ is a comedy-drama just like his Munnabhai series and 3 idiots. It will surely be one of the most entertaining things you would have watched in recent times. Our promise.
The Alien, PK, in his magnificent adventure in the land of thousand cultures meets its several contradictory beliefs. The movie is the ultimate fun ride that shows how he challenges each of these in his own peculiar yet humorous manner. He gets mixed with people who sell-s religion for a living; thriving on people’s fear and hope to become rich. PK becomes the ultimate question mark against the religious fraud.
The movie goes about in a seamless fun-ride till the late half of second half thanks to Hirani’s exquisite narration. But, it falls a little towards the end with a clichéd final confrontation of good versus bad.
Aamir Khan does a class act as the peculiar PK. He bares everything and once again proves how far he is ready to match the character. He is one of the pillars of success in this blend of vibrant Indian colour and comedy. The music, by Shantanu Moitra, Ajay Atul & Ankit Tiwari, is another treat which awaits the viewers. Watch out for the brilliant Rajasthani composition ' Tharki Chokro'!! '
It is funny, colourful, musical and ultimately entertaining. Please don’t miss this fun-filled ride of PK; the alien in an equally alien and strange land.
