PK - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Yet again, Rajkumar Hirani blends comedy with a social message and gets a point across. Even if the comedy doesn't work all that well, it is a film worth a watch for sure.

Sure, this Khan's films are different from the other Khans wherein the film is likely to have some sort of a story and point. But, it is very similar to them too, in the sense that their films carry their stamp and PK's trailer goes on to prove exactly that point. The film oozes Aamir Khan from each one of its pore. Not the character PK, which would've been fine too, but the actor.

It also doesn't look like the other characters in the film are anywhere close to that of Aamir Khan's in terms of importance. The lead lady, Anushka Sharma's voiceover too is talks only about his character in the film, which isn't bad in itself.

Then you have Aamir Khan's exaggerated expressions and somehow for the first time I feel a little less than 100% enthusiastic about watching a Rajkumar Hirani film. Also, PK's trailer and his performance has a heavy Forrest Gump feel to it. And that is a little underwhelming, because it already looks overdone.

The music isn't very encouraging considering most reviews think it isn't anything fresh and is similar to music from other films made by the same team. I see myself walking in the theater to watch PK with a little more apprehension than anticipation. But as always, would love to be proven wrong about my misgivings.
