Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India:

Straight up, Piku is delightful, a cinematic rasgulla, dipped in the sweet, dark rum of life. Architect Piku Banerjee (Deepika) is only child to 70-year-old Bhaskor (Amitabh) who obsesses about his health – including creating commotion around his stomach’s motion…

Book My Show:

With hits like Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe to his name, director Shoojit Sircar is back with an interesting tale about a father-daughter relationship. Offbeat, quirky and likable, Piku is surprisingly delightful to watch…

Mid-Day:

Piku is like hot chicken broth for the senses, the kind of food you know will soothe you, warm the cockles of your heart and more importantly, won’t mess with your digestive system. Perhaps, the kind of dish that would be just ideal for one of the lead protagonists of the film…

Bollywood Hungama:

There have been many iconic Bollywood films set in Bengal like DEVDAS, CHOKHER BALI, PARINEETA, KAHAANI etc. And now getting deeper into the beautiful Bengali world is this week’s release PIKU, which is set in a typical Bengali household.

NDTV:

A warm, charming and bittersweet family drama, Piku turns the genre completely on its head. The result is a magnificently original film that delivers a memorably unique movie experience. Coming from the man who crafted Vicky Donor, a quaint drama around the adventures of a sperm donor, and got away with it, this comedy about constipation is par for the course…

CNN IBN:

One hardly expects to be rewarded with warmth and genuine sweetness from a film about a cantankerous old man and his exasperated grown-up daughter who spend most of their time arguing about his bowel movements…

The Indian Express:

What goes in one end, comes out the other. Any mention of human excretion usually elicits an ewwwu of disgust. Polite society demands euphemisms, especially when it is about adults and their digestive tract functions.

India Today:

A film that talks of bowel movements all through 125 minutes can’t be full of shit,  proves Shoojit Sircar. Sircar’s Piku brings across a fresh breeze of humour, cine-goers had missed for quite some time now…

Rediff:

Piku is a film with tremendous heart, raves Raja Sen. We are never told Deepika Padukone’s actual name in Piku. A Bengali nickname is an all-conquering wonder, a sticky and stubborn two-syllable sound that a person is straddled with when too-young-to-object, and one that follows us to our graves…

Glamsham:

In one of the scenes, Irrfan Khan (quite literally) explains how the Indian toilet is better than the western toilet. PIKU has many such hilarious and eccentric moments which make sure you’re smiling throughout. It’s a feel good, heartwarming, slice of life drama, most of us can relate to.
