Starring Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan in lead roles, Piku is directed by Shoojit Sircar. From the time the promos of this one began airing on TV, people have been quite excited seeing the comic and light – hearted nature of this flick. Does it work? Let’s check it out.
Deepika Padukone (Piku) is your everyday young woman who works at an architecture firm and takes care of her 70 year old dad played by Amitabh Bachchan (Bhaskor). Bhaskor Da has a weak stomach and frequently ends up sitting in the toilet with loose motions. Piku tries to balance her work life with ensuring her father gets his medicines at the right time. Bhaskor convinces Piku for a trip to Kolkata to see their old home and catch up with their relatives. The rest of the flick deals with their journey and how Irrfan Khan (Rana) slowly but surely becomes a part of their lives.
