Movie Review: PK – You Can Replace Aamir Khan But Not Rajkumar Hirani

pk-04From Munna Bhai MBBS (2003) to Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), 3 Idiots (2009) to PK (2014); Rajkumar Hirani has always given content driven films and has strived to raise the bar.

With PK, Rajkumar Hirani has proved that he is one creative genius Bollywood should be proud off.

In Munna Bhai MBBS he questioned the medical system, in Lage Raho Munna Bhai he introduced Gandhigiri, in 3 Idiots it was Rancho doing his own number and questioning the education system and in PK its all about God and Godmen.

Yes, the film would have been expectational had it release prior to the 2012 release Oh My God in which Paresh Rawal’s character too questions God and Godmen, but the similarity is just in the idea not in the way Rajkumar Hirani has handled the plot.

PK is all about Jagat Janani (Anushka Sharma) a journalist student in Belguim, who falls in love with Sarfaraz (Sushant Singh Rajput) from Pakistan. Her family back in New Delhi believes in a Hindu Godman who predicts that Sarfaraz will dump her which leads to some confusion and in no time a heartbroken Jaggu heads back home.

In walks an alien (Aamir Khan) somewhere in Rajasthan who can only return back if he finds his stolen locket. He has never seen humans in clothes and then starts the joyride as one by one the alien questions every manmade belief just like a child.

Since his dressing and behaviour is weird so the name given to him is PK. He soon bumps into Jagat Janani on a Delhi metro while he is distributing pamphlets which say if anyone finds God they should contact PK. Jagat Janani who now works as a journalist in a news channels finds PK fascinating and follows him till she gets his story out. Initially hesitant Jagat Janani eventually decides to help PK.

His locket is with a popular Godman and it’s not going to be easy to get it back. Even after he finds his locket he has to find God, so that he can return back from where he has descended.

There are only two things that disappoint you in a perfectly laid out platter. One being Sanjay Dutt, who has been terribly miscast and the second being Sushant Singh Rajput.

Anushka Sharma’s romance with Sushant Singh Rajput and their subsequent break-up is the most bizarre and juvenile part of the film and would go down as the most amateurishly scripted love story of 2014.

PK is a rare film, with our without Aamir Khan. One must watch it only and only for Rajkumar Hirani.
