    How can any body expect that courts find some thing wrong. It is concerned with belief and not reason. It hurts majority of the potion still it doesn't have any thing to prove that it does. It is a sentimental issue and many who are married to material world doesn't understand. PK is not the first nor the last attempt to hurt the devotees. Sine times immemorial there were attempts to distract the real devotees but they never succeed.

      PK is Worst Film that ever Bollywood industry produced, The film insulted all the sentiments and cashed into Money, ... what is this , why this younger generations become so much stupid and s.... Today they are making fun of Beliefs... on which their elders and parents have thought them good.... First of all in the film the actor backing alien theory, the way the alien entered on to the earth like a thief, and what a joke that his team left alone on a alien(Earth) planet, and nothing is shown about alien world or their principles .....the entire unit of PK literally and wontedly made jokes, dialogues,scenes and characters that show that all beliefs on Planet Earth are useless .... I did not understood ... How can the aliens leave the actor alone, despite of knowing that earth is Complex planet, when they have the technology to reach other planets, they would have known something about what they are entering.....the alien actor himself wouldn't be that much fool..... Bollywood beware that public are watching your acts...
