Piku Movie Review: Direction
Shoojit Sircar has earlier directed highly acclaimed films like Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe. So our expectations from Piku are also high. To our pleasure he does not disappoint either.
The beauty of this film lies in the simplicity. Piku is one of those rare films which will make you smile, laugh and cry at the same time. Shoojit Sircar narrates the story in such a unique way that you have to admire him. He is surely one of the finest directors in our industry. It is one of those very rare Bollywood films where director stays loyal to the subject. It has been the case in recent times that most of the films started off well in the first half but loses grip in the second half. But Piku is exceptionally engaging and interesting throughout the film. Hats off to Juhi Chaturvedi for his excellent screenplay. Editing is also tight which makes Piku even more engaging.
Cinematography is also good considering the theme of film. Music by Anupam Roy may have not chartbuster songs but it will work wonders in the movie especially Journey song.

Deepika Padukone is a revelation yet again in Piku. She is rasing the bar with her every film.She was terrific as Piku. She uses her face expressions accurately.Surely her eyes speak a lot.You will fall in love with Piku after watching the film. An award worthy performance.
