As the world prepares to watch the Deepika-Amitabh starrer Piku in cinemas today, Bollywood is already going gaga over the movie.

Termed a family entertainer, the movie Piku revolves around the sweet-bitter relationship of a Bengali father-daughter duo. Deepika Padukone plays the role of an architect, Piku, stuck with taking care of her difficult father, suffering from constipation, played by Amitabh Bachan, while yet another legendary actor, Irrfan Khan, plays the character of her love interest.

Written by Juhi Chaturvedi, the movie, with the tagline “Motion Se He Emotion”, has its main focus on the road trip, from New Delhi to Calcutta, taken by the three lead characters and the emotional trip that intertwines along the way.

As the characters of Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan fall in love, their relationship is affected by the continuous presence of Amitabh’s clingy character and the fact that Piku refuses to marry anyone unless he is ready to take on her father’s responsibility.

The trailer had been generating a buzz since its release but the movie has seemed to surpass everyone’s expectations with effortless performances by all stars and ingenious direction by Shoojit Sircar, of the Vicky Donor and Madras Café fame.

While Deepika has already been on a roll the past couple of years, it is Amitabh Bachan who has impressed everyone with his outstanding performance. Their performances have moved almost everyone to tears while beautifully exploring the unique father-daughter relationship.

With Bollywood’s thumbs up for the movie, Deepika has yet again set the bar high with her award-worthy performance. See what the Bollywood celebs had to say about the movie Piku:
