Aamir steals the show, it's a winner
The rationalist argument about religion, broken down to a nimble satire
PK is as much a philosophy as a film. It takes the 'stranded alien' theme, familiar from classics like ET, but tells the tale equally from the lonely alien's eyes.
Aamir Khan plays PK not only to his strengths, but adds something new: we’ve seen his earnestness several times before, but not artlessness.
Most of the humour is rendered by the snappy and consistently funny dialogue, and while it seemed like Khan was hamming it in the promos, he’s quite likable despite his over-the-top expressions.
It is a feel-good, family entertainer with a charismatic lead. It is well-meaning and amusing film, occasionally brimming with great ideas.
