There are no larger-than-life heroes, dramatic transformations or neatly-tied endings. Still, Piku works its magic because it steers clear from the usual trappings.

The teeny bit of melodrama is handled beautifully by shuffling laughs and tears together like a pack of cards, making Piku one of the more emotionally honest films to have come from the industry.

A fellow movie reviewer pointed out that this is the second time Amitabh has played Bhashkor Banerjee. First being Anand. That got me thinking, would the pensive Bhashkor from Anand turn out to be someone like Bhashkor from Piku? Can life change a person that much?
Harhsal Bhave, MERCURIAL STABILITY
Piku is a refreshing tale that acquaints us with one of the craziest father-daughter duos ever. It features three extremely talented stars who will not disappoint you. To sum it all up, if you are looking for a light-hearted film to enliven your weekend, Piku is definitely recommended for you.
Samiya Dinware, BookMyShow
An amazingly sweet, powerfully moving and emotionally resonant adage on parent and parenting. Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’ is nothing short of a cinematic triumph that finds the magnificent Mr. Bachchan, Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone working at the peak of their respective powers delivering a nuanced, thoroughly delightful and hauntingly beautiful family entertainer having multi dimensional look at the struggles and comforts of family bonds.

Piku is a largely impressive and splendidly fun follow-up by Shoojit Sircar to his fantastic Madras Cafe. The finale of the film does play a spoilt sport, but you're still left with the memories from one helluva journey you're unlikely to forget soon.
