‘Piku’ Promises to be Endearing

The makers of the highly anticipated movie ‘Piku’ have released their first trailer. And from the looks of it, ‘Piku’ appears to be a hearhttp://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/piku-teaser-amitabh-bachchan-deepika-padukone-irrfan-heated-argument/1/425168.htmlt-warming and an endearing movie. Slated for a 8th May 2015 release, the trailer of ‘Piku’ has piqued interest and generated a lot of buzz. The cast and crew of the movie have enormously managed to impress the viewers and critics, who are waiting eagerly for the movie to release. Directed by Shoojit Sircar of ‘Vicky Donor’ and ‘Madras Café’ fame, this movie is a must-watch. Here are 10 reasons why you should watch the movie for sure:-

1.    ‘Piku’ may appear like a typical father-daughter family comedy drama, but what makes it different from the others are the crafted actors and a fresh storyline. It centres on a cantankerous old man with idiosyncrasies - Amitabh Bachchan who essays the role of a father and Deepika Padukone, who plays his doting daughter. Going by the trailer, an interesting ensemble of star cast sharing screen space entices the audience to come and enjoy the joyride.

2.    ‘Piku’ is a must watch because of Amitabh Bachchan, a legendary actor and an institution himself. Although we have seen him in comic roles earlier in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Chupke Chupke’ and several others, this man’s comic timing is impeccable. Brace yourself and get ready to watch a hard of hearing, constipated and a miserly Amitabh Bachchan in yet another comic role.

3.    Known for his acting prowess, Irrfan Khan is one of the finest actors we have in the Hindi film industry. In ‘Piku’ he is paired opposite Deepika and it will be interesting to watch this unusual and fresh pairing.

4.    Going by the trailers, the chemistry between Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone is crackling but subtle. If all goes well, this pairing may work wonders for the movie ‘Piku’.

5.    Big B is seen playing the role of an elderly man suffering from the uneasiness of constipation, so the movie is littered with jokes and quirky dialogues about the same. He is seen turning around any conversation towards the working of the intestines. Viewers are in for a treat and to have a good laugh to their heart’s content like never before.

6.    Shoojit has given Big B a totally new look, replete with thick spectacles, wig, a neck brace and pronounced Bengali accent. The effect is utterly adorable and more so with Big B’s comic sense.

7.    Deepika is essaying the role of an architect in the movie. Yet again, the audience will be able to see her in a never done before role. This is a very different role for Deepika who is seen in a non-glamorous avatar which seems to be suiting her well. And need I say that she looks stunning as ever.

8.    ‘Piku’ promises to be a light-hearted and an endearing movie revolving around a daughter and her elderly father. A clean family movie, ‘Piku’ can be enjoyed by the entire family and makes for a great must-watch movie this summer.

9.    Directed by Shoojit Sircar who is known to make thought provoking and immensely likeable movies, I am sure the storyline of ‘Piku’ will also convey a meaning to the audience.

10.    Over all, Piku is a sweet film with an interesting star cast which makes it a must-watch movie. It is bound to make you smile.

I am going to watch ‘Piku’ for sure. What about you?
