PK

Postby Going South » Mon Dec 22, 2014 10:57 pm

In India, Its OK for a movie to make fun of Hindu religion but its not ok to make fun of any other religion?

Nobody dare make a single scene in a movie that does satire on Islam or Christianity but its "OK" to do anything that hurt Hindu sentiments.

Movie "madras cafe" faced huge protests from some groups as people of certain religion followers are shown as terrorists. duh!

Movie "davinci code" is banned in certain parts of India as it hurt sentiments of Christians.duh!!

Movie "Bombay" faced a lot of hardships in showing for certain theaters as they are burnt as the movie hurt the sentiments of Muslims as the story is about a muslim girl falling in love with a hindu. duh !!!!

But everything ok with the movie PK. Whoever raised their voice against it are now "nonsecular" and "narrow minded"

Double standard, eh?????

It's Aamir Khan movie, so I expect it to be good.

Will definitely watch it some time.

Based on the WillowTV commercials for PK I'd say it looks like the stupidest movie I can imagine. Some mix of Mr. Bean and a Cameron Diaz movie.

in western world you can make fun of any religion including Christianity. India is different. People can openly make fun of Hinduism but it's taboo to ridicule Islam or Christianity. That's different version of affirmative action where minorities are given more insane lawlessness than majority in the guise of secularism.

I watched this movie second day second show- after reading good review of it in the local newspaper. And I loved the movie.

It must be said that this movie has come out unscathed despite being critical of various religious practices. The makers of this movie, and Raju Hirani in particular deserves great kudos for pulling this feat off. It in a nice movie to watch. No doubt there is some elements of ET in it, but considerable portion of the movie is quite original in its storyline. And there is good dose of subtle humour in the movie throughtout that keeps one amused.

Watched the movie.

Really liked it. I rated it 10/10 on Imdb.

Entertaining move throughout.

Much better then all the Salman-ShahRukh crap of last 4-5 years.

Credit goes to RajKumar Hirani too.

He has directed 4 film. 2*Munna bhai, 3 idiot and now PK. All 4 brilliant films.

PK is a wonderful movie. Raises a lot of valid questions about religion.

True the director did go a little overboard on Hinduism while barely mentioning other religions.. but nothing that should not have been raised.

All the ruckus about the movie kind of validates the messages of the movie itself.

No way she is 26. Auntie looks already. Bollywood actresses and Pakistani cricketers are known to shed a year or 5 off their ages. Madhuri is still not in her mid 40s for crying out loud which means Vinod Khanna banged a teen in Dayavan. He was around 50 with a hairy chest back then.

Even with no channels 3+ hours is a bit too much, unless it's a great movie how can one afford to give 3 and a half hours to a movie at one go.

Hi,

I really love this movie. This movie is based on Hindu religion. I am big fan of Aamir Khan. I have watched this movie with my family members in North Country Mall (Mohali). We all have enjoyed this movie.

Thanks

It's no different from KP LIFE story

An extraterrestrial alien comes to earth, losses his remote control that calls his spaceship and get stranded on earth living in an adopted country following its customs, traditions & tattoos. In the end he gets justice and return back to his planet but teaches all other future aliens on how to survive on the alien planet called earth
