Review: Helmed by Rajkumar Hirani, ‘PK’ amuses the audience with its chucklesome dialogues and quirky scenes. The film which has highly entertainment quotient is a blend of humour and thought provoking messages.

PK is a wonderful piece of cinema that, pretty much like his much-loved Munnabhai films, blends heart and head with commendable mastery.

PK is a fearless critique of religious bigotry and the ways of India’s proliferating Godmen, but the film’s message is shorn of rancour and bitterness. It is instead cloaked in humanity and humour, which accentuates its impact no end.

The screenplay, written by Hirani and Abhijat Joshi, takes make-believe elements on one hand and draws upon the realities of our times on the other to deliver a fantasy so unique and original that it takes your breath away.

PK delivers an entertaining tale that touches upon the social and political ills that plague us but it does so without falling out of line with the need to keep the story simple and straightforward.

PK is a film that restores one’s faith in the much maligned Bollywood idiom.

It demonstrates that the so-called cliched conventions of Mumbai’s popular cinema can, in hands as able as Hirani’s, yield entertainment of the very highest pedigree.

The film opens in the desert of Rajasthan where a stark naked alien (Aamir Khan) alights from a spaceship looking lost and forlorn.

He belongs to a planet where clothing is unheard of and words as we earthlings know them are redundant because its inhabitants need nothing more than pure thoughts to communicate.
