It is said that simplicity is the ultimate sophisticaton and the movie Piku perfectly validates the saying. Bollywood film-making has pleasantly changed many folds in the recent time and we are lucky to be witnessing that. Gone are the days when it was assumed that the entertainment quotient of any Bollywood movie depends on sex, action, masala and Piku is a fine example of that.
Director: Shoojit Sircar
Piku is a simple story of a Bengali girl, Deepika
Padukone (Piku Banerjee) and her relationship with her father
Amitabh Bachchan (Bhaskor Banerjee), who suffers from constipation,
both physically and mentally.
Eventually, Deepika gets into a cute romantic relationship with
Irrfan Khan (Rana Chaudhury) who owns a cab company. However,
Deepika and Irrfan's love story depends on Amitabh Bachchan as
Irrfan has to 'adopt' Deepika's ailing father if he wants to marry
her (as preconditioned by Deepika).
But the main story of Piku starts when all three of

expectations. Deepika Padukone is currently one of the most sought
after actresses and there is a reason for that. Apart from her
charm and beauty, Deepika can steal away hearts with her acting
also and she has proved that again with the movie
There is absolutely no point in scrutinising Amitabh Bachchan's
acting skills as the veteran actor can certainly pull out any role
he is offered with and this role of being a constipation patient is
no exception. Although, Big B appears to be an irritating old man,
his childlike behaviour will simply make you fall in love with
Last but not the least, Irrfan Khan is one of the best actors in
Bollywood and the director knows this fact. We hardly could imagine
Irrfan Khan romancing Deepika Padukone but after you watch their
cute chemistry in Piku, your conception will certainly
The best thing that makes this film worth watching is the fact
that it will make you relate to yourself. All the characters in
Piku seem so familiar that you will eventually feel the
tale. Moreover, the dialogues are catchy and the performances by
Deepika, Irrfan and Amitabh are unrealistically realistic.
Although, Shoojit Sircar has used his resources to the best way
possible, the film gets somewhat too slow at certain
Shoojit Sircar's Piku is a simple and funny
movie which starts with bowel issues of Amitabh Bachchan, goes
through the romance of Deepika and Irrfan, and ends up touching
