Movie Review : PK

Movie Review : PK

PK is an Aamir Khan starrer movie released on 19th December 2014. Apart from Aamir movie stars Anushka Sharma,Boman Irani,Saurabj Shukla,Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput. It is directed by Rajkumar Hirani who have previously worked with Aamir in 3 Idiots and produced by Hirani,UTV and Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Marketing: The film is marketed not in the way today's films are marketed nowadays. No promotions on prime time TV shows, no News channel interviews, nothing of that sort. The film is marketed by creating hype about the character of PK nothing much was revealed about him. The nude Aamir poster was good publicity generator in social media otherwise no promotions. They visited different cities but not much invested in this field other than this.

Music: The film fails in this department as compared to previous Hirani movies. Accept Char Kadam and Dil Darbadar no other songs is melodious. Tharki Chkro,Nanga Punga Dost and Love is a waste of time are par below their standards. Bhagwan suits the situation but is having a feel of an old song.

Story: The film is about an alien (Aamir) who left behind on this gola ( earth ) because of theft of his remote. He reached Delhi in its search and knock doors of different gods for its return. Here he met Jagat Janani a.k.a Jaggu ( Anushka ) who is a TV journalist. She helps him in search of his remote by using him to expose tapaswi (Saurabh Shukla) who possess his remote. The story revolves around his experience on earth and how he returns back to his planet giving many comical & emotional situations in between.

Hits : Aamir as always has done full justice to the character. One can believe him as the man from some other planet. His expressions,mannerism and behavior are all superb. Scenes where he try to understand earth and its people are conceived nicely with equally good direction and acting. Sanjay Dutt is promising in whatever small role he was given. The film never bores you at any moment and is entertaining.

Miss : Although film is not dull but it reminds you of Akshay , Paresh starrer O My God's theme, PK's innocence search of god is some what similar to Rizwaan's search of the President in My Name Is Khan. People's response to the TV channel's campaign is like Lage Rahe Munna Bhai's radio campaign. Hirani failed in creating some new moments as he has done in his previous movies. ( like Jadu Ki Jhappi,All Is Well, Get Well Soon )

Verdict : A rare thoughtful entertainer you wouldn't like to miss. Don't miss it.

Rating : I would give 3/5 stars to it.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
