PIKU is Remarkable!


When it was ‘Half Time’, a word came out automatically from me – ‘So quickly!!!’

If you are a Bong or if your spouse is a Bong, you might just be living in this movie for sure! Guranteed!!!

Shoojit Sircar has already proved that he can build family atmosphere so well in Vicky donor, where he portrayed the Pujabi and Bengali families. Piku is similar to Vicky donor and it is equally well made. Hardly the viewer gets a chance to think of something else other than the movie. There are no speeding scene like Avenger, no sudden chocks, or ultra modern picturesque, yet, the movie grabs your attention based on the dialogues and the real life situations, which are common in almost everyone’s life.
Piku (Deepika Padukone) is the single daughter of Bhaskor Banerjee (Amitabh Bachchan). Her life revolves around Mr. Banerjee, who is under the weather almost always…..be it in actual or with his extra sense or tension. He mainly depends on Homeopathy as most of the Bengali families do. Piku’s concern and love for father and frustration for her own inability in convincing him has been shown really well, whereas the smallest but significant quirk of the elderly has been captured minutely. Anyone who lives with grandparents or any elderly parents will instantly connect with the story and the main characters of the movie, may not be fully. Emotion, frustration, anger, nostalgia, melancholy and above all humour …all have been well blended in the movie.
Rana Choudhary (Irrfan Khan)’s interesting entry into the father-daughter world, having his own family to deal with. His background is shown extremely well in just few seconds….with the home atmosphere, few dialogues from mother and sister. The expression of Kaku and Kaaki ma (Piku's uncle and aunt) at Piku's Masi's entry into the home, playing badminton opening the gate of the house, riding cycle through the narrow lane of CR park....all these scenes are really realistically remarkable...
Was Piku’s father selfish in advising his daughter to not get married? Is constipation a reason to not get married to his business partner? All these questions remain open though…
Mindblowing acting styles of every actor of the movie, including Deepika, Irrfan, Mausumi Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupta and above all Amitabh Bachchan have made the movie a ‘Must Watch’.

Loved the Movie! Really!!!
