This is my take on the new movie called PK.(Tipsy)
When I read comments about this movie, I was a bit disheartened. I wanted to see this movie so much and waiting for it to be released in US.
Aamir Khan is one Indian
super star, who is doing something no other super stars are even thinking about. May be others are thinking but not really putting any effort. If any of you watched his show ‘Satyameva Jayate’ you would know what I am talking about.
He touched upon so many issues that are social, economic, family, psychological, bribery, convoluted democracy, etc which are degrading and pushing mother India down and giving her a bad name. Aamir Khan is trying his best by contributing this knowledge,
which most Indians are turning a blind eye to. He is trying to make India a better place for all Indians.
Hence, when I read about this PK movie, my first reaction was,… ‘What? How can Aamir Khan do this kind of movie which puts down
a religion? He is not that type of an individual!’.
I sort of, lost interest in watching that movie.
I am so glad that convoluted thought lasted only a minute. I reacted without any basis, just because I read something and without
even giving myself a chance to judge objectively by watching the movie. I reacted the same as millions of hypnotized people, when they hear stuff from so called famous people without thinking objectively.
I went and saw the movie this weekend.
I loved it. The movie delivers a very strong message with humor. Just as “Andaaz Apna Apna”. Only ‘PK’ has more depth and dealt with real issues that are plaguing the country.
The movie did not just show downside of one religion
but also all.
The fact this alien is encountered by people, who happened to be Hindus, made it more obvious to some Hindu audiences, that they are being targeted. It also provided some kind of a twisted pleasure to some people who are not of
the same religion.
This movie also showed terrorists who are not Hindus, blowing off the train and killing innocent people. Of course no one mentions that!
The movie was about the idea of finding God when you are in need.
It is about how people can take advantage of people who are in need.
It is about people who are dressed in saint clothes and ripping devotees off.
It is about people wanting to be one with God, without realizing that they are being ripped
off by some of these so called ‘gurus’.
It is about these same so called religious leaders, who in the name of God, want to “protect” God by protecting themselves, by taking others’ hard earned money.
So, people, before you judge, go see the movie. As some one said in one of the posts, these people who made the movie is using this as a premise to get more money out of it. So what?
They are in that business of making money. Why don’t
you get something out of it too?
If you can take the message and change it for the better then do it. We are not dumb people. We have intelligent brains, so use it and understand the message and see what you as an individual can do about it.
