PK - Top Reviews

PK is no satire -- it's a bit too toothless for that -- but it is a rollicking mainstream entertainer with ambition to evoke some introspection
Raja Sen, REDIFF
When PK works, it does with great merit
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
It’s certainly not Hirani’s best. But it is good enough to engage and entertain the majority of its audience.
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Well, this movie has all the creative dum required for a good film and will add up in the list of elite films from our Hindi cinema
Divya Solgama, Movie Zadda
PK is a winner all the way, a film that Raj Kapoor, Bimal Roy and Guru Dutt would have been proud of had they been alive. Rajkumar Hirani is without a doubt their most worthy standard-bearer.
What keeps this movie afloat is Aamir Khan
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Watch ‘PK’, I am sure no other recent film has doled out such genuine humour.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
When PK works, it does with great merit. When it does not, it sermonises
Sukanya Verma, Rediff
Packed with sharp dialogue and genuinely funny moments that offset the lack of subtlety, it is easily one of the year’s better films.

One 'idiot' you must meet
Sonia Chopra, Sify
That one gripping and extremely effective scene where pk is taking on the shrewd godman (Saurabh Shukla) is alone worth the ticket

PK is by far the most honest and earnest big-budget film of the year.

Komal Natha, Komal Nahta
PK is sublime cinematic achievement speaking the unique ala Hirani language of cinema creating another milestone in the careers of Aamir Khan (his best act till date), Raju Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and UTV.
Vishal Verma, India Glitz
Half-full is good enough for a world used to empty glasses. If you’ve been thirsting for movie magic, there is so much to love about PK, especially in the fun-filled setup of a first half — one so exciting that you are most likely to forgive what doesn’t quite work in the second.
Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu
Rajkumar Hirani’s directorial brilliance, Aamir Khan’s flawless performance and good music, makes PK a perfect paisa vasool entertainer.
Arun Kumar Eadelli, Bollywood 3
Climax is mind blowing. Battle with truth and god! Must watch.

Priyanka Prasad, Filmi Beat
PK with its few flaws, does dial the right number that reaches the heart. A special appearance in the end, will even make you whistle.
Gayatri Gauri, Telly Chakkar
Jaggu [Anushka Sharma] is a journalism student in Belgium. Post studies, she lands in India where Jaggu spots PK [Aamir Khan] for the first time. PK is a different boy who has doubts on everything that a human being does. His dressing sense is completely out of the box and then there grows friendship between Jaggu and PK. Both start the journey to find out why the world is like this and this forms the plot

If Rajkumar Hirani’s films were people, they’d be my favorite school teacher. Not the Einsteinhaired caricatures from 3 Idiots, but that frumpy old professor that walks
Rahul Desai, Pune Mirror
This film you will watch again and again on your TV and Laptop. Yes! Just like 3 Idiots.
On the whole, Aamir Khan's PK is a solid entertainer that will surely entertain the masses and classes alike. An outstanding film. Go for it.

It's rational and worth a dekko
Ankur Karan Singh, Santa Banta
Don’t miss the film thinking about all the thinking you have to do and go for the no-brainer masala flick because the concepts are dealt with in a fun and playful way so that the message is passed on without making the audience yawn or leave them scratching their heads

Props to Hirani and team for saving one of the most enjoyable movies of the year for the last.

PK has characteristics that’ll remind you of the penetrating power of Gandhian philosophy. He is not a naive guy, but he believes in others’ virtues. He gets bitten, cries and then goes back to the work he has been doing, like most of us.

PK is one of the best films to have come out this year Although it falls short of expectations, it still has enough entertainment and several heart warming moments to keep the audience happy.
Anish Mohanty, Planet Bollywood
PK is a dialectic on religion on the big screen, without much of the splendour of cinematic technique. It is rooted to dialogues, scenes and characters, as does Hirani’s other films. But the director’s biggest feat is the idea, its effortless translation and its politics
Sanjukta Sharma, Live Mint

We all need a change of heart! It's a pity an Alien has to teach us that!!
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
PK is confused. It equates religion with terror, but then focuses only on the middlemen. And every few minutes on this pilgrimage is a moral uprising followed by catharsis.

Way better than most films this year, but you expect more from a Hirani - Aamir film!
Indicine, Indicine
Hirani’s films, from the two Munnabhai entries to 3 Idiots, are essentially reworkings of Mukherjee’s films like Anand, Bawarchi and Khoobsoorat, where a free-spirited outsider breezed through stuffy surroundings and made people rediscover what they’d lost. In the charming Ferrari Ki Sawaari, which Hirani co-wrote, there was an echo of the scene in Guddi where a stu

On the whole, Aamir Khan’s PK is a solid entertainer that will surely entertain the masses and classes alike. An outstanding film. Go for it.
पीके' आज के समय की जरूरी फिल्म है। राजकुमार हिरानी और अभिजात जोशी का संदेश स्पष्ट है कि अलग-अलग भगवान के मैनेजर बने स्वामी, बाबा, गुरु, मौलवी और पादरी वास्तव में डर का आतंक फैला कर अपना उल्लू सीधा कर रहे हैं।
Not quite Hirani's best, and yet better than the rest! PK has tremendous repeat value. It is a film that has the Hirani stamp all over it - an entertainer with a message.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
Coming at a time when faith has becomes a deadly business, Rajkumar Hirani shows mirror to the times we live in. Looking at the world we have created for ourselves through a stranger’s eyes, he exposes godmen who promise to resolve our problems by bringing us in contact with the Almighty. Some ask for monetary donations, some implore to convert and some even ask to lay life.
Anuj Kumar, The Hindu
However, it’s telling that the one who wields that weapon in PK is an alien who just wants to get off this planet.
Deepanjana Pal, First Post
A Rajkumar Hirani film is eagerly awaited by every film lover and with good reason

The message might be noble, but the narrative is weak, and this is perhaps the weakest of Hirani’s films

Aamir Khan plays an extra-terrestrial who challenges blind faith on planet earth.
Nandini Ramnath, Scroll.In
The film is a satire on "God and godmen". Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma, who have teamed up for the first time, are seen in never-played-before roles and the amazing chemistry between the two and their impeccable comedy timing are the main attractions of this much-hyped movie.

Story: An alien lands on earth but loses his remote to go home. Does 'PK' return - and as he navigates the human world, what does he gain and lose? Review: Arriving on earth, an alien (Aamir) is immediately robbed of the only thing he's wearing, the remote via which he can go home. Knowing nothing
Srijana Mitra Das, Times of India
It is about a man’s expose on how Godmen misuse religion to fool gullible people.
Komal Nahta, Komals Reviews
The universality of PK‘s subject mater, the accessible way it’s presented, the nicely incorporated song-and-dance numbers, and the fact that this is just a damned funny movie make PK a great starter Bollywood film.
Access Bollywood
There's an undeniable charm about PK that grips you from the word 'go', making it something of a small triumph in a year peppered with nonsense and big budget disappointments.
