by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

by Scott Foundas [Variety]
