This is an unlikely story of an alien who lands in the middle of desert (Rajasthan, India) completely naked like a new-born baby and then proceeds to acquire the ways of human adults in a bid to survive in a hostile environment on earth. His fate hinges on whether he can regain a stolen gadget (supposed to be the remote control device) that he desperately needs in order to return to his home planet .. light years away and his attempt brushes with mankind .. becomes idiotically comical.
Aamir Khan wants to be different from other leading stars in the Hindi film industry .. called the Bollywood. He is an experimental actor bound to achieving perfection in whatever he does. Aamir revels in the character called as ‘PK’ .. an unusually wide-eyed, fearless rebel who dares to challenge the societal and religious structures that encourage bigotry and distrust. Liberal co-star Anushka Sharma, playing a feisty poetry-loving girl who knows her mind far more than most Hindi film heroines are allowed to, holds her own against Aamir Khan.
The movie is aimed to be satirical as well a novel attempt to challenge the existing societal norms which depend on ‘ram bharose’ culture and blind faith on religious practices! If you liked Aamir Khan and director Rajkumar Hirani .. the successful duo who made films like Munnabhai MBBS, 3-Idiots, Lagey Raho Munnabhai .. challenging medical practice/ ethics, highlighting inefficient education system and proposing Ghandigiri in place of violence respectively .. Go and watch this movie challenging blind-faith followers of religion per se.
