P. K. is a comedy of ideas about a stranger in the city, who asks questions that no one has asked before. They are innocent, child-like questions, but they bring about catastrophic answers. People who are set in their ways for generations, are forced to reappraise their world when they see it from PK's innocent eyes. In the process PK makes loyal friends and powerful foes. Mends broken lives and angers the establishment. P. K.'s childlike curiosity transforms into a spiritual odyssey for him and millions of others. The film is an ambitious and uniquely original exploration of complex philosophies. It is also a simple and humane tale of love, laughter and letting-go. Finally, it is a moving saga about a friendship between strangers from worlds apart. Written by Abhijat Joshi

The best way to end this year- Watch PK!!! Ride of laughter and reality
19 December 2014 | by jnit005See all my reviews

Mixture of comedy and some lifetime lessons together constitute PK. A journey in which you will learn the life lessons and face the reality of our society in a different way.

Amir's acting, Anushkha's cuteness and Shushant's innocence will win your heart. Thanks for making this film Mr. Hirani. At least somebody is there don't make movies just for money. Every dialogue, every scene was so perfect that you will a smile on your face all the time. Loved the simplicity of the movie. Beautiful locations, amazing songs and the funny dialogues adds spice to the movie.

A must watch movie for all.
