PK Hindi Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-9
Said to be a comedy-drama, the makers of the film have managed to keep the story tightly under wraps, despite the film's heavy promotions. As already reported in the media, Aamir Khan plays the role of an alien, something that is a relatively new in Bollywood. Add to that, with director

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-7
Two films may be too few to base a theory on, but it does appear that in Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani, Bollywood has found an actor/director pair committed to telling brave, relevant stories, the sort rarely tackled in mainstream popular cinema. After delivering a well-aimed

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-8
Arriving on earth, an alien (Aamir) is immediately robbed of the only thing he's wearing, the remote via which he can go home. Knowing nothing of human ways, language, clothing or lies, the alien searches desperately for his remote, his antics bizarre enough for people to ask if he's 'pee kay'

  •  Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-8
How must it feel to look at life through really wide eyes? Cynicism is always easier than sincerity, and few filmmakers can nail the latter quite as consummately as Rajkumar Hirani, an old-school teller of fables who specialises in giving his audiences lumps in their throats.

  •  India Today | Review By -Rohit Khilnani Rating-9
After making 3 Idiots in 2009 it took five years for Rajkumar Hirani to find the right story to make a come back. Clearly he was making sure he only lives up to the sky high expectations and raises the bar once again. In Munna Bhai MBBS he questioned the medical system, in Lage Raho Munna

  •  NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-10
After an entire year of being subjected to unalloyed trash generated by box office sharks that cannot see beyond their weekend collections, Bollywood enthusiasts who value their intelligence - and their hard-earned money - finally have reason to rejoice. PK is here. Rajkumar Hirani's first

  •  Zee News | Review By -Anindita Dev Rating-9
A satire on the political beliefs, religion, superstitions, the mindset of Indians and much more, Raj Kumar Hirani has tried to bring out the sensitivity of various issues with extreme care through the characters. And each one played his role to the `T`. Be it the Rajasthani friend Sanjay Dutt

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-5
Is that a bird or a plane? Old question, new answer. No, it is ‘PK‘. And who is PK? A guy in madly printed shirts, buttoned tight around the neck, eyes glinting green, mouth ringed paan-red. And what is PK? A voice of wisdom and reason, in a Bhojpuri accent. Laden with so many distinctive tics

  •  Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-9
And naturally, they don't believe in deception either. This is what Rajkumar Hirani's seemingly naïve but awesomely feel-good perception of the living beings from a planet from the neighbourhood is. And as expected this movie reflects the same sentiments throughout.

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-7
Rarely do we come across films which have the quality to stay with you but this film is one of them. In a country like India topics such as Religion and God are only spoken about in unwatched documentaries which are often on the radar of religious groups and more often than not, they are banned.

  •  Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-7
Among showmen and whiz kids, game changers and auteurs resides a genial filmmaker, a fairy godmother the disenchanted audience badly needs. Rajkumar Hirani could easily be mistaken for that kindly neighbour in one's building, the sort who greets you in the lift with a warm smile and offers

  •  ABP News | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-6
Is PK a total PJ (poor joke)? It could have well been. Yes, this film can seem like quite a stretch, least of all for the fact that the lead character here is an alien and he looks nothing like ET (Extra-terrestrial). Before the film’s release, this premise was being guarded from public like a precious

  •  DNA | Review By -Sarita Tanwar Rating-7
When the same actor-director pair of the outstanding 3 Idiots comes together on celluloid, the expectations are huge. But that’s something both Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani have always known and they were expected to soar beyond them. However, their latest offering, PK

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-8
"Jo darr gaya, wo mandir gaya." It’s difficult to convince you of our impartiality with such a header, but this is where our job begins. In my defense, I begin by telling you that PK is the most ‘different’ Aamir Khan film you have ever seen. Now, let’s start cracking the code. PK (Aamir Khan) is not

  •  Moviez Adda | Review By -Divya Solgama Rating-9
Aamir Khan is simply outstanding in this movie. He raises the bar of acting with almost every film of his and in 'PK', he is at par with Rajkumar Hirani for being the best reason to watch this movie. Aamir's smile, cute expressions, body mannerisms and every minute detailing enhances his character

  •  Bollywood Life | Review By -Srishti Dixit Rating-10
Well, this could go on for a while. Firstly, a big round of applause for Aamir, Rajkuar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra for making this story and giving us a grand family entertainer with some food for thought! PK will make you ask the pressing question, “How does Aamir do it!” The star

  •  Chitramala | Review By -Rachna Srivastava Rating-8
Watch it definitely! For Aamir, for adorable P.K., for the satire and for various other reasons! This Yearender is definitely going to touch your hearts and make you smile. I have given an extra half star for Raju Hirani and Aamir Khan’s hard work, and secretly for Ranbir Kapoor (winks)!

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Priyanka Prasad Rating-7
Woohoo... PK is finally here and boy was I excited to watch this masterpiece on the big screen. After five years of sheer hard-work Rajkumar Hirani presented us with yet another cinematic brilliance, PK. 80% of the credit goes to the director for spinning this innovative concept into such

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-8
Why we just can’t stop loving Aamir Khan? You don’t expect brainless cinema from him, he doesn’t just deliver entertaining film, but a thought provoking one (always!), and last but not the least there is no body in Bollywood, who could match up to his brilliant acting performances.

  •  Sify | Review By -Sonia Chopra Rating-9
The clueless PK (Aamir Khan) seems out-of-sorts and confused. He's a Bihari - speaking, paan chewing fellow who steals clothes from "dancing cars" (we leave you to decipher that one) and money from temples. Innocent, often unclothed, and confused by the complexities of life including religion

  •  Now Running | Review By -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-8
A third person view is often far more objective than what you and I may have. Which is why there are bodies that can provide judgments, objectively, on matters we could end up complicating otherwise. Somewhat like a viewer, who can be brutally honest about the drawbacks in a film.

  •  Glamsham | Review By -Martin D'Souza Rating-7
OMG this is déjà vu. September 2012 saw a bold movie by Umesh Shukla starring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. OH MY GOD illustrated the pointlessness of all religious beliefs. It also highlighted the fact that those immersed in rituals forget the simple truth of living and loving.

  •  India Today | Review By -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-9
Let me start with stating that PK, courtesy its subject, is going to be a very important film for us in the coming years. You ask me why? Because it addresses faith, fears and the per-conceived notions arising from religion. Alien PK lands on earth in search of a tool that will help him go

  •  Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Rahul Desai Rating-8
If Rajkumar Hirani's films were people, they'd be my favorite school Teacher. Not the Einstein-haired caricatures from 3 Idiots, but that frumpy old professor that walks normal, dresses quirky, and tells stories with a questionable singsong voice. He is a tad melodramatic, sometimes uses sign

  •  India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-6
Many think that writer-director-editor Rajkumar Hirani has a magic wand which he flashes to make socially relevant movies that work for the masses without sticking to any formula. That wand has given Hindi cinema characters such as Munnabhai, Rancho and Circuit. Now there's another

  •  Malayala Manorama | Review By -Nelson K Paul Rating-7
Bhooom! There goes the surprise around Aamir Khan's role in 'PK' a minute into the movie. But that's not what director Rajkumar Hirani wants to play with. He means serious business by getting into issues, holding hands with the art of satire, like he always does in his movies, and this time he

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-6
We discuss politics. We discuss films. We discuss people. But when we discuss religion, there is always something that holds us back. It might not be an issue with everyone, but most of us will agree. And now, here comes PK. With childlike curiosity, PK searches for answers to questions

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Sarit Ray Rating-6
It's hard to believe at times that Rajkumar Hirani, as a director, has just four films to his credit. You somehow tend to think of him a veteran, someone whose work you look forward, and hold to a higher standard. After all, his track record is stellar - three films, three massive successes, both

  •  Indiaglitz | Review By -Vishal Verma Rating-8
A sublime cinematic achievement PK is another milestone in the careers of Aamir Khan (his best act till date), Raju Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and UTV. This fresh, completely funny and exquisite tour de force that charms throughout with its recipe of love, lost, life, god and humanity.

  •  Deccan Herald | Review By -Arkadev Goshal Rating-6
In a recent interview, director Rajkumar Hirani said the test of a film is 10 years from its release: If people still remember it, it was good. His PK may reach there, but just about. Judging by Hindi film standards, this one is miles ahead. And yet, there are ample elements in this execution

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Suparna Sharma Rating-5
Four films later it’s safe to pass judgment. I can now confidently say that Rajkumar Hirani has assumed the role of India’s moral compass whose lynchpin is Bollywood. He’s our path-pradarshak, our moral guide, and that’s why his films are like a visit to the moral spa.
