| A Sweet & Simple Film...
Shoojit Sircar reigns supreme as his latest offering 'Piku', is a hugely entertaining, simple & sweet film, that also has some amazing performances working for it. Here's a film that has humor, emotions & the pace, one expected from it.

'Piku' examines the life of a father & daughter, along-with a dry-humored car-hiring company owner/chauffeur.

'Piku' is about relationships & responsibility. The narrative wonderfully narrates the relationship of an overbearing, constipated father & his hard-working daughter. Even the part of the car-hiring company owner is so nicely written. In fact, the diversity between its primary characters is what makes 'Piku' such an absorbing watch. There are moments when you laugh-out-loud & there are times when your heart just melts. You feel for the characters & that kind of connect, is a huge bonus for any film.

While the first-hour builds-up the structure of the film with some hilarious moments, the second-hour shifts into the emotional zone, especially in the penultimate portions. 'Piku' is a lovely blend of humor & emotions.

Juhi Chaturvedi's Screenplay is first-class. She has created a world of difficult, diverse minds with precision. A Special Mention for the fantastic dialogue all through. Shoojit Sircar's Direction is excellent. Sircar is only getting better & better with every film. He's undoubtedly, among the most precious filmmakers working in the Hindi Film Industry today! Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are superb. Music & Background Score by Anupam Roy is wonderful.

Performance-Wise: 'Piku' is enriched by amazing performances. Deepika Padukone is at her natural best as Piku, the daughter of a selfish father, who's torn between responsibility & her own ambitions. Deepika is believable & affecting throughout. Amitabh Bachchan, as the selfish & constipated old-man, is outstanding. Right from speaking Bengali with the correct dialect, to delivering some of the spiciest lines, the legend doesn't seem to miss a single beat. Irrfan is fabulous. He's given some of the film's best moments & the talented actor only elevates those moments with his superior act. Moushumi Chatterjee is flawless. Its so nice to see the veteran back after a hiatus. Raghuvir Yadav & Jishu Sengupta lend able support.

On the whole, 'Piku' is one enjoyable ride! Go, have a good time! Recommended!
