Storyline

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

Trivia

Costumes worn by Aamir Khan in the movie are actually collected randomly from the public See more »

Goofs

In one of the scenes, an elderly person asks PK for Rs 500 as he was Rs 500 short for the treatment of his wife. PK gives him Rs 500 plus Rs 100 for tip. In previous scene in temple, when Jagat Janani's money was taken away by temple's priest, Pk offered her Rs 200 which he had taken out from temple's charity box and also said that he had no more money, while pulling out to show his empty pockets. So if PK had only Rs 200 at that time then he could not have lent Rs 600 (500+100) later. See more »

Watched PK...speechless!!A sparkling example of qualitative cinema! It's rare to see a film that bounces between humor & sentiment so seamlessly .aamir khan has done many challenging roles in his career but #Pk is beyond imagination!!!Aamir khan acting is just beyond imagination his career best performance !!!! ‪#‎PK‬ he'll make u laugh, cry, amuse, provoke.. all at the same time!!You experience the whole gamut of emotions, and end up saluting the makers. First time as a ‪#‎critic‬ I feel some films are better experienced as a ‪#‎discussion‬ rather than as a critical analysis and #PK is among them. Writer director ‪#‎RajuHirani‬ like every time presents a new thought. His strength as filmmaker is his honesty, his intention n his simplicity. ‪#‎AamirKhan‬ has done many challenging roles in his career but #Pk is beyond imagination. His performance has to be experienced!The efforts taken by Raju Hirani to raise fundamental questions bout human belief system requires loads of courage n extensive research #PK. The uniqueness of Raju Hirani lies in making a pertinent point on the social fabric of the country n yes ensure relentless entertainment. Hirani touches our heart and mind at the same time. Yet again. Raju Hirani, you short little genius !!. Anushka Sharma springs a refreshing surprise.She shines brilliantly as an actress. Sushant Singh Rajput is extremely endearing in a cameo while Sanjay Dutt is all heart...The fat barber will emerge as a Rock star soon. If you're looking for a rare experience of emotion packed message n quality entertainment then #PK won't disappoint you.Enjoy Its truly your best performance till date!!! This movie couldn't have been better timed seeing the 'change' our country is going through. Entire movie hall went gaga over it. ‪#‎PKaaya‬ What a fantastic movie.. you're really done a superb work.. what a performance. Wonderful. #AamirKhan great, ‪#‎AnushkaSharma‬ adorable. Still singing "Love is a Waste of Time."
