Having known that Aamir Khan is playing the character of an alien in PK and after seeing the recent posters, I felt that this movie might have been inspired by Kevin Spacey’s K-PAX (2001). The latter is one of my favorite movies. Especially the way Kevin Spacey pulled off the interesting character quite effectively, mesmerized me. Out of all his movies that I watched (The Usual Suspects, 21 and few more), I would pick this one as his best work. The major highlight of K-PAX to me was the way protagonist convincingly answers all the queries of Psychiatrist and blows him away and others. After a while, the viewer also gets serious and can’t figure out if the hero is truly an alien or an innocent person with psychic issues.
The title PK is also hinting that it could be similar to K-PAX (name of planet).
Anyways, there’s lot of potential in this subject and if it’s the base of PK, then it could be a wonderful watch. Lets wait and see !
