The performances are pitch perfect, with A-lister Khan proving yet again that he's the most versatile and intelligent Indian actor of his generation. The result is probably the best mainstream Hindi film of 2014.
The film deftly pokes fun at the foibles of earthlings -- especially their warring religions -- with warmth and compassion, and shines a light on the contradictions of India's strict but unwritten social rules.
A biting, whip-smart satire on the thorny subject of organized religion, the Bollywood musical "PK" enlightens and provokes through outrageous slapstick.
Mr. Hirani remains an excellent storyteller, weaving his disparate story strands into a convincing, satisfying whole - a rare Bollywood feat.
Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan are an exceptionally potent team.
Watch this film if you are a Khan fan and want to learn a thing or two about religious tolerance without making it a bitter pill for viewers.
This is perhaps the weakest of Hirani's films. His trademark humour is sparse; and inspite of Anushka Sharma's spirited portrayal of a reporter who helps PK, and Khan's over-earnest performance as the protagonist, the film is a tedious watch.
Good intentions don't automatically translate into absorbing cinema.
The film tries so hard to be smart and funny, but... PK offers a metaphor that's too simplistic to be taken seriously.
A romantic/ sci-fi/ musical comedy that touches on philosophical themes with lots of irony. [Full review in Spanish]
This entertaining Bollywood musical is so relentlessly buoyant in its charge to ask the big questions it comes close to reaching an epiphany.
A bold exploration of religion wrapped in a sci-fi drama with several moments of broad comedy thrown in to lighten the mood -- after all, it is Bollywood.
Going by the box-office results, it may be Hirani's most successful film as yet, but content-wise, it's his most disappointing venture as yet.
