This weekend was real awesome for me. At least it was not sulky like past few weekends. And all the credit goes to Rajkumar Hirani’s tolly. Yesterday I went to theatres to watch P.K which itself is rare. I was skeptical about it as it eats up lots of time to go to the theatre and I didn’t have time to check out the reviews of the movie and before I could do so, my friends had booked ticket. But the moment the movie started, Anushka’s voice floated in, a feeling of relaxation settled in and I knew I was not going to regret coming to theatre.
Well what I didn’t know was this movie will enchant me so much to blog about it. The story unwrapped smoothly around us, introducing a flappy eared Aamir Khan arriving naked on the earth from some other universe as a blank slate, Anushka Sharma gracious (except than her duck-like lips reconstruction surgery) in Belgium fighting for a concert ticket, Sushant Singh Rajput copying her and adding more charm to the scene with his constant smile and shayari. Boman Irani, Saurabh Shukla It was good only that the makers of the movie were very secretive about the movie, zipping everyone’s mouth and increasing the height of curiosity in the audience. And the waiting was worth enough. It paid real well. Aamir Khan dressed colorful, stealing here and there from dancing cars, with his weird yet genuine child like curiosity will glue you to the screen. Again his innocence, despair and dedication to the character will make you both cry and laugh at the same time. It really happened. Half of the time my friend was sobbing next to me. So better watch the movie with a big tissue roll.
Though it’s not as perfect as 3-Idiots(movies like 3 idiots happen by mistake, I guess. No one can go and make it), it took me more than 24 hours and several replays in my mind to come out of its charm and realize the bumps in the movie. Towards the end the movie was kind of unsettling. It could have been better. The story portrayed by Anushka Sharma is actually from the book she had authored and it is revealed at the end which is totally unnecessary. The role of Sushant Singh, Sanjay Dutt and Boman Irani is very much shortened and seems gulped up by Aamir and Anushka pair. Though it’s not a trouble as there won’t be a moment where Aamir will let you down. Still I wanted other characters to bloom more on the screen especially Sushant’s character.
Overall about the movie, it was a great satirical journey with handful of questions exposing the ugly side of our society. The dialogs are written with authenticity and are commendable. It must have taken a great toil of patience and observation. Story is smooth and floating with minimal glitches. The music is great and I am downloading them right away. You won’t regret burning a hole in your pocket for this movie. So what are you waiting for? Come on! Go. Book your tickets right away. If not now, then when?
Rating: 4 out of 5

P.S: I am no professional movie reviewer and it’s honestly my first movie review. So if I am wrong in anywhere, then you know what to do. Till then keep smiling. J
