Piku, directed by Shoojit Sircar, is a charming, unpredictable comedy that – like Sircar’s Vicky Donor – mines humor from the unlikeliest of places.Sircar keeps a breezy, light-hearted tone throughout, infusing a hint of humor even in the decidedly emotional bits.I’m going with four out of five for Piku. Although obsessed with all the wrong body parts, it’s a film that’s full of heart.

I grew so fond of your world in just two hours that I cannot stop missing it. Neither should the audience. I hope they can savour your sweetness, simplicity as well as laugh at your tummy troubles like I have.

Watched Piku. A simple-n-sweet tale that's deftly executed and brought to life by Shoojit Sircar. A film that demands an applause. Irrfan is brilliant. Is there any character he cannot portray? Give him any character and he takes to it like a fish takes to water. Amitabh Bachchan proves, yet again, that he's an icon. His act in #Piku is a masterclass in acting. You are simply incredible, Sir. Love the choices Deepika is making as an actress. To stand up to stalwarts like Big B and Irrfan is no mean achievement. Bravo! #Piku

On the whole, Piku has sectional appeal only. It is entertaining and very different from the usual commercial films but it will be loved by only the class audience and will, therefore, score in good multiplexes, mainly in the cities. But business in lesser multiplexes, single-screen cinemas and smaller centres will be low as the masses will not take to the drama.

Piku's story is stunning. It beautifully explores the most basic bond of life - a parent, a child, a beginning and an end. It looks shyly at love. It smiles tenderly at Bengali flavours, at fish fry and digestion pills, but also at universal stories, of irritating relatives and domestics who look after us until we die.

A warm, charming and bittersweet family drama, Piku turns the genre completely on its head. The result is a magnificently original film that delivers a memorably unique movie experience. Piku is an absolute must watch.

An emotionally rich and endearing film, Piku is a heart-warming experience that every Indian who has lived with ailing or ageing parent will connect to. Piku offers no masala or romantic escapades but neither does it bog you down with preachy monologues and gyan on how kids should be responsible towards their parents. This is the kind of entertainers Bollywood should aim at.

One has to applaud the way in which Shoojit has handled the sweet and simple tale of PIKU. This film will definitely go down as one of the films in his repertoire that demands a superlative applause. Even though the film is good in overall perspective, the climax is sudden and does seem to be left incomplete. On the whole, PIKU is a must watch this season as it brings back the memories of the legendary directors Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and likes. This is a film that shall grow with word of mouth.

the film puts a smile on your face primarily because of the collective prowess of its principal cast. Watch Piku if you are in the mood to watch a movie that’s all heart. There are no larger-than-life heroes, dramatic transformations or neatly-tied endings. Still, Piku works its magic because it steers clear from the usual trappings.

A film like Piku is inventive and unconventional but mainstream. You wish there were some more drama in the second half to elevate it further. However, the performances are so tight that they overpower everything else. Piku is one of the best films of the year. It’s a must-watch for the thundering trio of Bachchan, Padukone and Khan.

  3. PIKU:
    A ‘Motion’ picture about ‘Emotions’! [4/5]

    On a rainy Sunday, go on a long drive with lawns of lushing greenery on either side of the road and try to stick your face out of the window of the speeding car. Shoojit Sircar’s PIKU feels exactly like that moist breeze of fresh air on your face. But that would be one of the most positively, imaginatively and pleasingly fabricated statements to describe the film. Let’s keep it simple and honest! PIKU is an awesome feeling you earn after ‘satisfactorily’ disposing the waste from your digestive tract in the morning, to make sure the day ahead sees no ‘constipated’ look, mood or temper. PIKU works like an efficient and the best in business ‘Kayam Churna’ to make Bollywood flushing out all the frustration with freely-flowing entertainment all the way.

    Mr. Banerjee [Big B himeslf] is nothing but a chaos in himself. More than being an ageing single father, he’s irritating father to Piku [Deepika Padukone]- an unmarried in her 30’s trying her hardest to take care the challenges Mr. Banerjee creates every now and then. Here’s a father who doesn’t want his daughter to get married as marriages in India don’t do any good to women. He also can reveal her daughter’s sexual independency to the man he’s just met surely to ensure no possibilities of wedding bells ahead. Progressively selfish you can say! These all look petty issues over the ever not- happening potty issue of Mr. Banerjee! And now, it’s not Piku alone in all this ‘shit’ discussions happening everywhere from dining table to car-ride and where not. Rana Chaudhary [Irrfan] accidently joins them on a road-trip as the responsible owner of the taxi-service, now acting as the committed driver.

    Film marks the brilliance in writing [Credit goes to Juhi Chaturvedi] where humor comes generously from a place everyone feels comfortable being silent. The hot seat in the lavatory! The toilet-humor has never smelled so fresh. Picture this when all three main leads start discussing the texture, color and graphical representation of the waste-disposal act, that too on the breakfast table! But PIKU is not only about ‘motion’ but ‘emotion’. The daughter is frustrated with her unsympathetic father but couldn’t hold herself any longer from dancing when finds the old man enjoying his day after much chaos. Dialogues wisely shift its tone from argumentative Bengali to expressive Hindi and conversational English.

    Amitabh Bachchan’s outspoken, loud and blunt Bengali father Bhaskar Banerjee in PIKU is completely opposite to the sophisticated, refined and shy Dr. Bhaskar Banerjee in Hrishikesh Da’s ANAND. The resembling identify can be coincidental or a deliberate choice to make some connect between both the filmmakers’ shared style. The actor blesses the character so much in details you never doubt on the believability factor. Especially in her de-glam look, Deepika Padukone shines and surprises you to the last. The anger, annoyance and concern keep on flashing on her face with supreme ease and sheer confidence. Irrfan charms, and better than any romantic screen-Gods in Bollywood! He makes you believe in the audacity of an actor who slips into any given character’s skin smoothly and leaves you speechless. Yesteryear actress Mausumi Chatterjee does a pleasant comeback.

    At the end, Shoojit Sircar’s PIKU is a beautiful film that celebrates dysfunctional Indian families in the most entertaining manner without losing the undercurrent emotions. We keep shouting on our ageing parents for being illogical and over-sensitive; PIKU gives us a priceless chance to sit and have plentiful of good laughs with them! Book your tickets…and for your whole family! It demands, it deserves! [4/5]

  6. Brilliant Movie! This Soojit Sarcar wonder reaffirms my faith that Bollywood can make meaningful cinema as well. From the direction, to the production, to the acting, to the screenplay, to the music, to the locations (calcutta will leave you enchanted and asking for more), everything is just top notch. The characters and their emotions are so life like and relatable, that you cannot help but fall in love with this film. I am definitely going for a second watch.

  7. And Irrfan man...take a bow. Thank God they went with you instead of a what we (very foolishly) call "Bollywood superstar". Amitabh is brilliant, but You might end up liking this guy more. He is the harbinger of sanity and sense in this hilariously chaotic Bengali family. His bewildered expressions and responses are amusing and his commitment to his character is adorable.

    Piku – the movie- had not generated any pre-release hype . It was expected to be just an ordinary comedy barely able to hold back the audience for three hours . But, what it turned out to be was a very very pleasant surprise . Director Shoojit Sircar’s abilities were never in doubt but he pulled it off very handsomely by making even Deepika Padukone, not known as much for her acting prowess as for her beauty and elegance , give a performance of her lifetime . Bachchan senior is as usual brilliant and Irfan almost flawless . The brilliance of the movie is not in storyline but in the manner it has been conveyed .
    This is one movie in a long time which most of us will not find difficult to relate to .The situation & the story line are so very real and the characters & their mannerism so very natural .
    It required the genius of Sircar to present the complex web of relationship between an ageing cantankerous father and his modern day independent daughter in subtle yet simple manner by using idiosyncrasies of the character of Bhaskor Banerjee . It is a must -watch and a huge comic relief for the harried and hassled Indian cinema goers who are sick of watching mindless masala bollywood movies
