Just saw the movie PK. An amazing movie, very different from the run-of-the-mill hindi film!
The movie in short – P.K. is an Alien who comes to earth to find life as people on his planet also thinks that there is life on earth. He lands in Rajasthan completely naked and as innocent as a new born babe and immediately somebody steals the pendant which he wears as a necklace and which he needs to contact his spaceship to return home. He starts his search and in the process meets Jaggu aka Jagat Janani (Anushka Sharma), a TV reporter who lives apart from her family due to a failed relationship with a Pakistani grad student Sarfaraz (Sushant Rajput) in Belgium plus her disbelief in the god man Tapasviji (Saurabh Shukla) her family believes in.
PK’s experiences in earth are to put it mildly hilarious and the premise of the movie – on how these god men use their charisma and our need for an anchor in god as an excuse to make money out of us, will make you think deeply and perhaps start questioning organised religion.
The climax was superb and the questions raised by PK throughout the movie are pertinent and spot-on!
Boman Irani as Anushka’s boss and Sanjay Dutt as PK’s Rajasthani were excellent. Ranbir Kapoor as the next alien who comes for more research perhaps hinted at a sequel, one that i will definitely go see!
The theatre was not full but we could see people laughing aloud many times. We saw this film as a multi-generational family – me, my kids, my mum and helper and every single person enjoyed it. In short a poora paisa vasool movie! So go and see it!!
