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 revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
