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.

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.

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.
April 21, 2016
A romantic/ sci-fi/ musical comedy that touches on philosophical themes with lots of irony. [Full review in Spanish]
April 2, 2016
This entertaining Bollywood musical is so relentlessly buoyant in its charge to ask the big questions it comes close to reaching an epiphany.
February 25, 2016
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.
May 5, 2015
Never preachy or high-handed, the filmmaker is an expert at presenting complicated concepts in the simplest of ways.
April 8, 2015
P.K. is a landmark film that has come out at a relevant time in the current Indian and global political climate. Go see it and reflect on the difference between faith and religion.
April 8, 2015
There are some very powerful scenes in the film that will make you cry, uneasy in seat, and even laugh sheepishly at times.
April 8, 2015
The focus... gets diluted by a wholly superfluous romance (and songs, tuneful as a couple are), and a face-off between the guy awash in goodness who asks all the right questions and the bad godman who has all the wrong answers.
April 8, 2015
I can think of nobody but Aamir Khan as PK, and nobody but Rajkumar Hirani as our teacher.
April 8, 2015
PK is as much a philosophy as a film.
April 8, 2015
This is his most controversial film, but he delivers it with the same humour and emotional insight that he showed in 3 Idiots.
April 7, 2015
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.
December 24, 2014
For once with an Aamir Khan vehicle, what is most memorable is not his predictably strong performance, but material and execution as fearless as he is.
December 22, 2014
A biting, whip-smart satire on the thorny subject of organized religion, the Bollywood musical "PK" enlightens and provokes through outrageous slapstick.
December 19, 2014
Mr. Hirani remains an excellent storyteller, weaving his disparate story strands into a convincing, satisfying whole - a rare Bollywood feat.
