Given the bloated junk currently clogging both Hindi and American mainstreams, such human-sensitive fare provides its own restorative, oddly pleasurable form of release. It slips down nicely.
Bhashkor is not your typical Bollywood papa, and "Piku," directed by Shoojit Sircar from a script by Juhi Chaturvedi, isn't a typical Hindi movie.
While the movie has far more toilet humor than you might expect, the locations and overall sweetness of the performances make "Piku" a good winding-road pick.
Piku is a lovely film, which tells a compelling story created out of everyday lives. This doesn't happen too often, so don't miss this one.
Some sequences bristle with the emotional tension that can result from a self-centred single parent stifling his daughter's dreams, but they quickly dissolve into giggles.
A lot of Piku belongs to writer Juhi Chaturvedi, in her naturally progressive ideas and her ability to see the universal in the particular.
This is a beautiful and often hilarious film about a love that lasts a lifetime.
[The] legendary Amitabh Bachchan brings both dramatic heft and lightness of touch to a showy role, but it is Deepika Padukone who emerges as the film's heart and soul.
Delivering a disarmingly natural performance, much like Piku, Padukone is the cog that keeps everyone else turning.
The music feels like a warm breeze, worldviews and personalities seem familiar, and the quiet final minutes reiterate the circular motion of life.
Piku is Shoojit Sircar's film. It's his way of celebrating forgotten cinema by Bengali greats.
A father and daughter hit the road to repair their relationship, but end up trying the audience's patience.
