5 reasons why the film must be banned Aamir Khan has managed to ruffle some feathers yet again.
With Rajkumar Hirani's PK reigning over social networks and saffron office discussions, there is one thing for sure. PK, banned or not, will rule the public memory for a while before passing away like every other controversy storm that the country faces once in a while. And as the film sees itself as the rallying point of the raging controversy now there's but one thing that is robbing the sleep off many eyes: to ban or not to ban PK. We give you five reasons why PK must be banned. PK the alien. This is no country for aliens. PK is an alien. Aliens don't existPK the film presents a story from the point of view of PK the alien. And aliens, as we have by now realised more or less, don't exist. Or maybe they do, but they don't get in touch with us. Like well honed brains have time and again reminded us, the biggest proof that there is extraterrestrial intelligence out there is that they have never bothered contacting us earthlings. And why would they. Consider, just for a fraction of a second, that PK really exists. He lands on the Blue Planet, and realises the amount of chaos that prevails here. Even after a film has been watched and criticised and has enjoyed an amazing profit at the Box Office. PK the alien, ergo, it is safe to assume, a la the Hindutva groups who are demanding a ban on the film, doesn't exist. After all, aliens have never bothered to let us know about their existence, or extended a hand of friendship luxottica ray ban towards us. And the quintessential hurt at the drop of a hat egos that we Indians boast of, there is no reason to let a film that talks about aliens run in theatres. But then, the gods that these pro ban guys are thumping their chests about and trying to 'protect' from this assault by PK, do not exist either. Even if they do, none of them has ever bothered getting in touch with a sane person on earth. But maybe we should leave it to them Saffronites to prove or disprove that. For now, since we have been snubbed by PK's compatriots and have been made to feel like jilted could be friends, we should be happy with banning the film. Isn't that what jilted friends do? PK has made money. We have notAt the time of filing this, PK is already swimming in a sea of the orangish Mahatma Gandhi ed paper amounting to some 236 crores just in India. And India, as we know, is a country where most people are poor. Yes, even the ones who got themselves a Rs 1600 PVR Director's Cut Vasant Kunj Sunday night show ticket to PK. And since there is no rays bans way to assuage the amount of pain that PK has caused its audience by being blatant about its earnings, and reminding the ones asking for the film to be banned that those PK guys are way stronger, financially, than them, the film should be banned. Your strength lies in the Box Office; ours lies in our biceps and clout. And biceps are respected a lot more than what money is. India, after all, is a land of the poor, you see. Hence, PK should be banned to just show them that they can have all the money that they want; but we will not let them win this ego battle. Aamir Khan gave us the concept of candlelight marches to protest against something. Should we say more, as to why PK should be banned? PK has Aamir. Aamir made candlelight marches fashionableAamir Khan, the lead rayben actor of PK, has never really cared about bans. The last time someone tried to ban a film, in which Aamir had played a key role Rang De Basanti it turned out to be a blockbuster. Heck, it even redefined the meaning of freedom in the 21st century, for the youth of the country. It also turned India Gate into a symbol of protest of sorts. And since candlelight marches are something that Hindutva groups don't really have much respect for (when have you ever seen a staunch Saffronite holding a candle and demanding something in peace?), Aamir's film needs to be banned. PK should not be allowed to go the Rang De Basanti way, or for all you know, we will see the sword and lathi wielding saffron brigade turning docile and holding innocuous candlelight vigils tomorrow. Honestly, will you be able to digest it? Jaggu, the Indian, kisses and hugs Sarfaraz, the Pakistani. PK should be banned, no? PK has an Indian Pakistani lip to lip kiss. Hai Ram!In PK, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput share a passionate kiss on a bridge in Belgium. Anushka Sharma, Jaggu, an Indian, kissing Sushant Singh Rajput, Sarfaraz, a Pakistani. That one sentence is the worst nightmare of the ones who want a ban on PK. Now, if Indians kiss Pakistanis that openly on the streets let's just for a moment forget where the kiss is taking place is it not giving out wrong ideas to the youth of the country? Do the ban seekers really want to see the innocous, asexual teens and tweens of the country go the kissing and face blackening Jaggu Sarfaraz way? Don't you remember their ferocious protests against the Kiss of Protest that happened just a few days back? How can PK be allowed a free run when it features a kiss so openly; on a bridge above a canal in Bruges, Belgium? Can you imagine seeing a young couple kissing on the Worli Sea Link? Or on the old Loha Pul above the Yamuna? Don't you too think PK should be banned? Aamir Khan bares his perfectly toned body in PK. The film needs to be banned since the ban seekers aren't able to match up to him. PK shows a six pack abs baring Aamir. What's a six pack, again?PK, without the almost nude Aamir Khan posters, is pretty much unimaginable now. There have been protests regarding that poster, too, but for now, let's just concentrate on banning the film, shall we? So, PK has an Aamir Khan who is happily flaunting his six pack ed, gym toned body. And for most of the ban seekers; the men who probably have never spent any time on chiselling their bodies at the gym, Aamir's perfectly worked out body is nothing but their worst nightmare in flesh and blood. Imagine them, slogging their rears off ray ban usa sale trying to stop people from doing this and doing that all day, saving the country from going to the dogs, and all they get for appreciation is zilch. And here comes a man, who has done nothing; just spent time working on perfecting his art and being fit for the same, and he will be allowed to walk off with all the glances of admiration? Nope. PK is to be banned. If, by now, you still aren't convinced enough that PK should be banned, go watch the film.
Unlike most of the people who are demanding a ban on the film. At least you will be better informed, and will realise why anything that makes the remotest sense, needs to be banned. 'Cos the banned width that the ban seekers are adorned with, is a lot higher than their intellectual bandwidth.
