An Aamir Khan show in which logic takes a backseat
Dec 19, 2014
Half-full is good enough for a world used to empty glasses. If you’ve been thirsting for movie magic, there is so much to love about PK, especially in the fun-filled setup of a first half — one so exciting that you are most likely to forgive what doesn’t quite work in the second.
But then, Rajkumar Hirani always does this to us. He makes his films with so much goodness and madness, and did we forget heart, that you really don’t mind how much he exploits his artistic license. Give Hirani an inch and he will take a foot or two, sweeping you off it with his comic-book style narrative that makes you overlook things like logic, contrivance and depth.
