The harsh truth of modern days is our lack of time and energy for our parents. We are so busy with our work and personal lives that often the wishes and expectations of our parents take a backseat in the journey of life. Piku paints the beautiful bonding between a father and a daughter; a relationship desired by all families.
Piku (Deepika Padukone) is a successful architect residing at Delhi with her 70 years old father, Bhaskar Banerjee (Amitabh Bachhan). Piku’s father is always scared of dying from the problem of constipation and desires a peaceful death. He is dependent on his daughter Piku and hence is reluctant to get her married.
Piku on the other hand is a responsible daughter who loves her father from the deep core of her heart. Though most of the time she screams at her father for his reluctance to get her married and for his extreme obsession for his constipation problem.
The story is a treat for the Bengali spectators with the use of Bengali words in complete Bengali accent and by the beautiful depiction of Bengali culture, with several scenes from the daily Kolkata life style.
The story also has a subtle romantic aspect revolving around Rana Chaudhary (Irrfan Khan) and Piku. Piku is a very spontaneously told story with no over drama.
Throughout the movie there is very less time when you will not feel like laughing and as the movie ends, a sense of emotional warmth remains in your heart.
Watch Piku to fall in love once again with your parents and rejuvenate the parent-child relationship; Piku is an inspiration for the sons and daughters busy with their job and personal lives.
