Deepika Padukone portrays the main character. She is Piku Banerjee, a Bengali architect living in New Delhi. She is a “strange, weird, irritating, annoying” girl.
Amitabh Bachchan plays as Padukone’s hypochondriac father, who suffers from chronic constipation and does not want his daughter to get married. He says marriage is for people with low IQ.

Piku received wide-spread critical acclaim. For example, Rachel Saltz of The New York Times wrote “Piku, directed by Shoojit Sircar from a script by Juhi Chaturvedi, isn’t a typical Hindi movie. It lopes along, following no formula beyond the roughest outlines of a romantic comedy.”
