A typical Indian Comedy gets a typical critique review that "leave your brain at home and then watch it"...

In case of Hirani/+Aamir Comedy movies it should be

"Dont forget to take your brain in theatre and enlighten yourself while you laugh". :P

Back-to-back ATBBs for Aamir and probably - the ribbon-cutter of the 300 crore club as well.

100, 200, 300...

And Aamir isn't doing this through sheer star power either. It's hard work + judgment + intelligence + quality. Salman and SRK could learn really.

What a wonderful way to end the year! Watching a film like PK!

Firstly, can't understand the brouhaha over the film hurting religious sentiments, especially of Hindu's. I am a practising Hindu and there was nothing in the film that offended me.

Secondly, kudos to Hirani and team for making a film questioning religion (not God) in a country like India.

Coming to the film, without doubt, one of the best films of this year. Probably the best. In terms of the social message it gives and the relevance it has to our current society. Hirani makes a film that makes a strong statement without being preachy. A film that is gently thought provoking and not unnecessarily ballistic. It poses a question on the way we approach God, not on the very existence of God itself. Maybe, this is why PK has worked so well with both critics and audience.

The dialogues were all wonderful and clearly written with a lot of thought going into it. I particularly loved one...why do we pray to the God whom we have created, instead of praying to the God who created us? Clap That's a very powerful line and one that is so true.

The performances were outstanding. We can just forget that D3 ever happened. Aamir has redeemed himself with PK. He is absolutely marvellous in each and every scene. It is a flawless performances and proves how and why he is heads and shoulders above everyone else in Bollywood right now. You can't watch PK and not fall in love with the character that Aamir has portrayed so very well.

Anushka looks radiantly lovely and has given a very natural performance. Its not her usual bubbly, exuberant type of role...she is excellent where she has to be subdued or emotional.

Sushant even in his limited role is impressive and so likeable! Saurabh Shukla is a hoot as Guruji!

But without doubt, the real hero of the film is Rajkumar Hirani, who has taken a complex subject like religion and made such an entertaining yet deep film out of it.

The only glitch in the otherwise nearly flawless film was the last scene, where Anushka and Sushant speak to each other on the phone. That was very jarring and looked so forced. (Albeit Sushant was so good in that scene!)

This is definite must see movie, for everyone! People should leave their prejudices behind and watch the film for themselves before jumping to conclusions. It will certainly open a few minds!


PS: The Shiva scene that has offended a lot of people is actually one of the funniest in the movies. I literally collapsed laughing! LOL

Trade Experts predict PK to be the Biggest Bollywood Blockbuster! Read

December 27, 2014 0

Exhibitors and Trade Experts state that, like all other Rajkumar Hirani films, his recent release, PK seems to be enjoying a very high repeat index. Infact, this time around it is the highest ever for any film in Hindi cinema.

The Aamir Khan starrer is a light hearted entertainer which can be watched with the entire family.

Also, the film is written in a way that the viewer, in the middle of all the jokes and laughs does not even realize that the film had a takeaway; a social message. Due to these reasons and a very strong word of mouth, the repeat viewing of the film is very high.

The film released on 19th December not just opened to a fantastic number at the box office, but also showed phenomenal growth with each passing day. We saw the highest rate of growth in this film. The film has even broken the record and collected the highest amount in the first week (182.58 cr) of its release which only reiterates the fact that a major chunk of the audience is going to the theaters to watch the film more than once.

Kamal Gianchandani, CEO PVR Pictures Ltd shares, "With values and ethics in flux around the world, families badly needed an outing which had a blend of entertainment & learning, PK' taps into this need on many levels and has swept cinemas across the world, whipping families into a frenzy"

Ashish Saksena,COO Big Cinemas says, "Now that most films are essentially 3 days' affair, here comes PK with a terrific word of mouth. The collections are going up day by day and the weekday advance booking is also excellent. The film is now drawing a repeat audience, thanks mainly to the fact that PK, like all Rajkumar Hirani's films, caters to a strong middle class Indian audience and its humour is also very Indian in ethos. We expect PK to go ahead and become the most successful film ever..."

Rajender Singh Jyala, VP - Programming & Distribution said, "PK is an outstanding family entertainer with a strong message. We are getting lots of families for PK across our INOX multiplexes. With a strong word of mouth PK has already began attracting repeat audiences. All shows are almost full over the weekend across INOX multiplexes. As families and repeat audiences are coming for film, PK has all chances to emerge as a biggest Bollywood blockbuster.
