Plot

Piku is a simple story of a Bengali girl, Deepika Padukone (Piku Banerjee) and her relationship with her father Amitabh Bachchan (Bhaskar Banerjee), who suffers from constipation, both physically and mentally.

On the other side, Deepika also shares a cute romantic relationship with Irrfan Khan (Rana Choudhury) 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 them along with a house-help kick off a road journey from Delhi to Kolkata. Will Deepika and Irrfan get married? Will Irrfan take responsibilty of Amitabh along with Deepika? Or the journey ends up with the end of Deepika and Irrfan’s love story? All these questions make the crux of the movie Piku.

Performances

Director Shoojit Sircar has picked up three of the finest talents of Bollywood and all of them stood firm to the director’s 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 Piku.

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.

Last but not the lease, Irrfan Khan is one of the best actors in Bollywood and the director knows this fact. We hardly could imagine Irrfan Khan romancing Deepika Paadukone but after you watch their cute chemistry in Piku, your conception will certainly change.

Positives

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 seems 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.

Negatives

Although, Shoojit Sircar has used his resources to the best way possible, the film gets somewhat too slow at certain points. Moreover, in an attempt to make it more realistic, the plot of Piku gets predictable.

Verdict

Piku is a simple and funny movie which offers you a chance to get entertained with your entire family, as you don’t have to fear about any adult content popping up.
