This week, we have Shoojit Sircar's 'Piku' hitting the theatrical screens. Going by the looks of the heart-warming trailer, we know Shoojit has churned out a sure-shot winner! Afterall, very few film trailers leave you with a smile at the end and 'Piku' was one of them.
Before you book your tickets for the first-day-first show, we give you 6 reasons why it's your loss if you miss this flick!
1. Deepika Padukone as 'Piku'
We absolutely love her! Deepika is one of the actresses who doesn't shy away from experimenting with her roles. Be it as the bindass babe in 'Cocktail' or the unbashful Sanera girl in 'Ram Leela', Deepika knows how to be a scene-stealer. Now in and as 'Piku', she is back to make us go gaga over her!
2. Amitabh Bachchan's 'Bong' avatar
Bollywood's Shehanshah has some of the most iconic roles to his credit. In 'Piku', Big B is essaying Bhaskor Banerjee, a middle class Bengali father with a paunch, who suffers from an erratic bowel movement. Watching him mouth that dialogue- Kanjoos,ham log kanjoos hain with a heavy Bengali accent just had us in splits!
3. Shoojit Sircar- the man with a magic wand
Hailed as one of the most talented film-makers in Bollywood, Shoojit always comes up with a 'hatke' concept to woo the audience. The director who debuted with the lesser known 'Yahaan' got noticed with 'Vicky Donor' which dealt with the taboo topic of sperm donation. Next, came 'Madras Cafe'- a hard-hitting and raw tale. This time he is offering us a unique story which promises to melt our heart!
4. 'Piku'- a quirky story
Very few Bollywood films focus on the aspect of father-daughter relationship. 'Piku' is one of them. The film is a roller coaster ride with eccentric characters that seem so real.
5. The fresh pair of Deepika Padukone and Irrfan
For the first time, the two actors are sharing screen-space and we must say, they both look cute together!
6. The melodious and soothing music
Anupam Roy, a popular name in Bengali film industry, has forayed into Bollywood as a music composer with 'Piku'. The film boosts of some beautiful and serene tracks that will surely make their way in your playlist. Our favourites- Bezubaan and Journey Song!
