Bhaskar suffers from constipation, which is more in his head than in his body and drives his daughter Piku. In all of this walks in Rana Chaudhury (Irrfan Khan), who manages a taxi rental service and thus starts an equation between the two as they are all off to a Kolkata by road.
The possibility of Piku and Rana developing an emotional bond with each other on a Delhi-Kolkata road trip remains just that, a possibility that stops well short of culmination.
However, Piku is all about great writing and the entire credit for this one has to be given to Juhi Chaturvedi for belting out an amazing film.
Yes, you have Shoojit Sircar, Amitabh Bachchan, Moushumi Chatterjee, Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone, Raghuvir Yadav, Jisshu Sengupta and Anupam Roy, who made Piku possible, but had it not been for Juhi Chaturvedi’s brilliance, Piku would have just been another film.
I am sure, everyone would talk about the performances, the direction, the music on this one, but for me Piku is all about the way it has been written.
The equations that have been set between characters, the subtle nuances and strong characterisations that the film boasts off is all thanks to Juhi.
The film engages, entertains, makes you laugh, makes you cry and gets you totally involved in the characters and the story.
The only problem with Piku is the fact that it has an end. Once the film is over, you feel lost because you had been transported into a world that was so relatable yet aspirational, a world that every son or daughter can identify with.
All is all, Piku is a must watch for it’s great content.
Thank You Juhi Chaturvedi. Way to go girl.
