The Right Number – “PK” is Outstanding, and Religions are Indeed the Opiates of the Masses

On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I decided to stay in, order in some pizza, and watch a movie, which happened to be “PK.” It starred the ever adorable and uber talented Aamir Khan (gosh, he is SO hot! #FansHerself. And, dude, like, why doesn’t he age? Clearly he’s discovered the fountain of youth!)

Anyway, besides Aamir being like super hot and all, the film itself is brilliant. So very clever and just absolutely brilliant! It was definitely a breath of fresh air, considering that I am not at all a fan of Bollywood. But, if they keep making intellectually stimulating films like these, then, hey, consider me an official fan!

Anyway, I was going to write a review on this, until I came across this one written by Dr. Hayat Alvi. It’s short, but extremely well-written; it totally hits the nail on target. I know I wouldn’t have been able to write a better review than this, so it definitely deserved a re-blog! Thank you, once again, Dr. Alvi for writing this excellent review; I’ll be sure to share it around as much as possible.

Oh, and yes, do watch the film, good folks. It’s just too darn good to pass on!🙂

The film “PK” is a MUST see, and those who already judge it as a “hate” film are not those who have watched it and fully understood it.  That is crystal clear.  Notice the angry, violent reactions against PK.  No wonder; after all, fundamentalists (I like calling them religious fascists) in ALL religions are the same in their hatred, anger, intolerance, narrow…
