For all the movie enthusiasts who have taken cinematic flukes all year long only to catch hold of a one worthy piece of work, finally have a reason to rejoice!

Get ready to throng upon a cinematic bonanza this Christmas as the screen welcomes the living genius Aamir Khan as PK!

Plot: A heartbroken young lady, Jaggu returns to India after completing her studies from Belgium. A sudden encounter with an unusual character PK, leads to a dramatic turn in her life as she tags along on a journey of questioning the established beliefs and discovering new paths.

Performances: Trying to explicate the prowess of a living legend like Aamir Khan is probably the toughest thing to do on this earth. Actually, its impossible! Film after film, this wunderkind keeps on trotting out his competencies that have no match in the industry. And PK is his own masterpiece!

Anushka Sharma looks fresh and captivating with her new look. Her chemistry with Aamir is extremely adorable and amusing.

Sushant Singh Rajput, despite a short appearance, is super-delightful to watch. Only if Rajkumar Hirani could have taken more out of him, this man would have done wonders to the film.

Sanjay Dutt and Boman Irani make a refreshing appearance.

Music: Going hand in hand with the uniqueness of the film, the musical composition of PK is also an unusual entity. Composed by Shantanu Moitra, the album has all the qualities of an unconventional album. The songs are light, fresh and embedded with good content. But the unusualness of the compositions also gets them a chance of being forgotten. The best one from the lot- Dil Darbadar!

What’s Good: The uniqueness of its script is the golden formula that the film thrives upon. There is a lot to explore and very less to ignore. Simple emotions and simple analogies have been churned out to deliver one of the greatest works of Rajkumar Hirani. Questioning the most complex ironies of life with such serenity is something only one man could think of doing! Kudos to this laudable director and genius actor! The narration, the dialogues, the laughter and emotion, each and every aspect of the movie is worth praising. And without a thought, Aamir Khan is the show stealer!

What’s Bad: Excuse me, what?

What better way to end a cinematic year other than watching a film of the prodigies? PK is a rare piece, one that needs to be watched over and over again. A winner in all ways, the film is buoyed by ample surprises that keep you glued throughout the film. PK is a warm satire on the concept of God that the so-called Godmen have been thriving their business upon. The film has a good flow of comic and dramatically crucial elements that make the film a perfect entertainer. Only an idiot can afford to miss this film!

Verdict: Still dicey about watching the film? PK ho kya?
