Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra launched the trailer of their upcoming film ‘PK’. †The trailer has already received a great response on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.
The teaser trailer looks very different from most Hindi films that are churned out every week, which is exactly why PK could be one of the most refreshing films of the year.
We have a few photos from the launch, check them out.
AAmir wears this same shirt at every trailer launch!
I suggest you guys re-watch the trailers of Rajkumar Hirani classics like Munna Bhai films and 3 idiots.
Their trailers(including the new PK trailer) looked simplistic and didn’t reveal much about the characters and plot of the film, unlike other big film trailers which only highlight the best parts of the movie and disappoint big time when the full movie is watched later,e.g., Ra.One, Don 2, Ek Tha Tiger, Dhoom:3, Bang Bang trailers to name a few.
Rajkumar Hirani knows these tactics very well.
He has confidence on his product.
Box-office records apart, PK will be a classic!
Review: Happy New Year
Whereís the big bang in Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukoneís latest film?
By Manjusha Radhakrishnan, Senior ReporterPublished: 13:00 October 23, 2014
Director Farah Khan doesnít do dark films. Her films are festive and celebrate all things Bollywood ó the colour, the feverish dance moves and hyperbolic emotions.
But she seems to have taken a misstep with Happy New Year ó despite re-uniting with her muse Shah Rukh Khan and her Om Shanti Om discovery Deepika Padukone. We are eternally grateful for the latter, but itís difficult to forgive Farah Khan for not tapping into the collective potential of her ensemble cast (Boman Irani, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Vivaan Shah and Jackie Shroff).
Itís a heist thriller mixed with enough dancing to make your head spin. We are first introduced to the college graduate-but-jobless Chandramohan Sharma, also knows as Charlie, (Khan) who is nursing deep wounds. His father (Anupam Kher), who runs a business creating sturdy lockers, is duped by an evil businessman Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff) and hurtled off to jail for a robbery he didnít commit. ?Charlieís idyllic life is destroyed and he dreams of bringing down Grover. An opportunity presents itself when Grover declares on television that heís the custodian of precious diamonds worth billions of rupees. Itís an invitation that will tempt any robber-hopeful and Charlie jumps on it like a diet-addled girl on biryani. He puts together a team thatís far from suave. This is no Oceanís 11 in terms of suavity or style. But if you will, Reservoir (under)dogs for dummies.
ĎCharlieís Angelsí, as Shah Rukh Khan calls them, are a bunch of buffoons, who we are told, are exceptional at cracking codes (Irani), hacking (Vivaan Shah) or being a doppelganger of the evil guyís son (slum-dweller Abhishek Bachchan). They are sloppy and are in need of a crash course on competency and team work.
Forget stealing diamonds, this motley of wannabe crooks donít seem to have the know-how to steal a safety pin from a supermarket. If their IQ comes across as low, then you should watch these guys dance since the modus operandi is to masquerade as a dance team participating in the World Dance Championship in Dubai, the place where the diamonds are parked. After a series of failed dance lessons, they stumble upon bar dancer Mohini, whose dream is to open a dance school for children. Padukone is good and some of HNYís sparkling moments feature her.
In this splashy drama, every murky deed by the heroes is justified as some cathartic event in their lives since they were wronged in the first place.
Sometimes, you wish the makers had invested more energy into making the heist more exciting instead of justifying their intent and rolling out conduct certificates. Instead, the camera lovingly grazes Khanís eight-pack abs and is a glorious tribute to Khanís studied histrionics.
The robbery and its build-up should have been water-tight, but their clowning around takes up a lot of screen time making it a tedious watch. You may find yourself laughing at some of their antics, but HNY proves that nothing spectacular comes out of mixing gang robbery with grinding hips.
The team, we are told, enjoyed an enviable conflict-free camaraderie during filming, but only a slice of it has translated on screen. Itís got a few silly jokes, but they are too few to transform HNY into an engaging watch.
Bachchan Jr as the uncouth Nandu and Irani as the ageing Parsi bachelor are endearing in parts, but the simplistic story lets them down. Khan is in familiar territory and has the tendency to ham things along. My favourite scenes are the ones where famous dialogues from his previous blockbusters such as Chak De! India and Om Shanti Om are juxtaposed in this film.
The scene set in Dubai is spectacular. If Khanís oiled abs are on full display, the scenes against the backdrop of Atlantis, The Palm, the fountains at the Dubai Mall and ice rink among others, are no less gleaming. Watch this if you love Khan and Dubai, and are good with suspending belief for over three hours.
Stars: 2 out of 5

OMG third pic is too much fun
Happy New Year is an ultimate
recipe, which needs to be gulped with
One thing, which is clear and is quite obvious
that had it not been the king of
entertainment Shah Rukh Khan, the movie
would not have been that easier to standby.
But itís not that Shah Rukh Khan is all over
whom Farah Khan entirely depends on. The
directorís offering carries that essence, which
quite fulfils our requirement of getting
entertained with other few reasons.
Robbery has been an integral plot found
recently in most of our Khans’ movies. After
Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3, Salman Khan in
Kick, not to forget Hrithik Roshan in Bang
Bang and now itís Shah Rukh Khan in Happy
Uncomparatively, Happy New Year has
different situation and different approach to
make that robbery happen. Charlie (Shah
Rukh Khan) builds up a team for World dance
Championship in Dubai.
We come across Nandu Bhide (Abhishek
Bachchan), Mohini Joshi (Deepika Padukone),
Jagmohan Prakash (Sonu Sood), Temhton
Irani (Boman Irani), Rohan Singh (Vivaan
Shah) with their unusual qualities.
They team up together but their unsuccessful
attempt brings them to a jackpot, which
needs to be looted and is owned by Charan
Grover (Jackie Shroff). So, will they be
successful? That you would have to find it
What one could expect from Farah Khan in
Happy New Year is the element of surprises,
which keeps popping up every second
sequence and that helps in sidelining the
illogical things, however there arenít many
The jokes are cynical and satirical and also
allow its characters to self mock, a little
stupid but enough to bring smiles on our
Watching through this over three hours
entertainment, we are recalled of Farahís
signature direction alongside replication of
few scenes. We wonít reveal it as that would
soar your taste a bit and allow you to
discover that by yourself.
Capitalising over the superhit jodi of Shah
Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, Farah
paints epic romance between the two in the
movie, which is one of the vital features
youíll love to cherish yet again.
Despite its three hours long drama, the movie
rarely bores you with these two romancing
while Abhishek, Boman, Sonu and Vivaan
giving an impeccable contribution in fun. The
action sequences have been worked upon
and once set it is deemed to give you
Performances of all creates a massive
impact . As said before Shah Rukh Khanís
screen presence is a major relief for us.
He is the one who could carry off any messy
script, however, in this movie he gets a good
support and with it he is once again brilliant.
Deepika Padukone yet again proves that she
could fit in any role given and is here to stay
for long. Abhishek Bachchan in comedy roles
is getting perfection.
We have seen him in Bol Bachchan and in
this too he gives a good performance.
Boman Irani plays his part well. Sonu Sood
with a combo of brilliant physic and acting,
gives a great performance.
Debutant Vivaan Shah doesnít let himself go
overshadowed by the likes of big actors
standing with him. He is good.
Music by VIshal-Shekhar is brilliant. Songs
like Lovely, Indiawaale, Mawaa Laage have
already created massive buzz on the music
charts and in the movie those alongside
others are a treat to watch.
Teaser was amazing- super confident to say Indias first 300 cr film on its way this Christmas…!
ATBB and evergreen classic on its way- and I dont mean tomorrow when some Antique Washing Machine Heist is releasing… All eyes on PK the movie even though some of our readers may be more inclined to look at PK transistor praying it falls of like ‘zeeshan’, ‘sahir’ and ‘trini-in-one’ but that aside PKs BO journey this Christmas will be record breaking…!
trailer is mind blowing awesome …
I seriously love the world in Raju Hirani movies.
From Munna Bhai to Pk his stories are set in a place full of compassionate people where goodness rules the roast.
Such an inspiring person!

@babaji ka thullu: why the hell have you been posting some stupid review of whatever in the PK’s article? It’s better you watch first and then criticise if you want (even though you are gonna make believe every others that you ain’t gonna watch it, but I am sure you will) and spread the negativity as usual! My point to you, just watch it, if you want.. as a neutral fan! Don’t go by others. Thanks!
