Director: Raj Kumar Hirani
Cast: Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Saurabh Shukla, Sanjay Dutt, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani

Mr. Perfection is back with one of the most hyped movies of 2014, which released across India today. Before I get into the details of it all, one thing which I can hand to them is that they have successfully managed is generating a lot of curiosity via their banners and after the magic that Raj Kumar Hirani & Aamir Khan created when it came to 3 Idiots; PK (PeeKay) built a lot of anticipation.

But sadly, (now that is one 'but' I might regret because it is contrary to what the crowd may have felt), it didn't live up-to the bar I had set in my head. PK, on a whole is harmonious & uninterrupted with rib tickling moments at times but doesn't leave a resounding impact because of a few patches during the run time which seemed unnecessary & prolonged.

The movie starts off with a romantic fling between Jagat "Jaggu" Janani (Anushka Sharma) & Sarfraz (Sushant Singh Rajput), which seems to be go at an extremely fast past and fizzes out in 5 minutes (minus the duration of a song) 'because' of a prediction by a self proclaimed (phony, mind you) God Man, Tapasvi Maharaj (Saurabh Shukla). Good thing Hirani fast forwarded 6 months of rona dhona to the part where Jaggu is back in Delhi, where she comes across PK (Aamir Khan), dapered in some fancy pants, a yellow helmet and a transistor across his shoulder with a simple question "Where is God?". An issue which has highlighted with utmost diligence by the director and followed by the actors.

Aamir Khan has yet again made an impact with his acting, literally ACTING. His eye-widening expressions are so sublime that his adaptation of the Bhojpuri accent seems mellow as compared to the same. Being a stranger to this world, PK tends to ask kiddish questions with ditto curiosity taking him on an journey full of laughter, drama and 'true love' where-in you involuntarily feel love and pity towards him at the same time.

One mind-wrecking question the movie subtly asks is about our approach toward the Babas and Sadhus out there who 'talk to God'. Being an atheist, the highlight of the film for me was their take on all 'Godly Men' with their sleazy smiles & bogus words and how people tend to measure their movements & money in pleasing 'the high power'.

Along-with the hoards of unexpected revelations & mimics which you will come across throughout the movie; The supporting cast, may it be Sushant Singh Rajput as Anushka Sharma's soul-mate from across the border, Boman Irani as her unorthodox boss, Saurabh Shukla as a medium to God or even Sanjay Dutt (from behind the bars) deliver a stellar performance.

Well, gathering my balls I give PK 3 Shors on 5 for it surely is an entertainer for just about everyone and is definitely worth watching once but, has a lag here & there Cheers.
