Read the reviews below:
Jordan Hoffman of NY Daily News said: "While the movie has far more toilet humor than you might expect, the locations and overall sweetness of the performances make "Piku" a good winding-road pick."
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7 said: "Shoojit introduces a sweet romance, even as Piku resists constantly. It's ironic though that Rana, despite being boxed in a cranky family, finds happiness when sandwiched between the annoying father-daughter duo."
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: "Watch Piku if you are in the mood to watch a movie that's all heart. 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."
Bollywood Hungama's review: "PIKU is a must watch this season as it brings back the memories of the legendary directors Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and likes. This is a film that shall grow with word of mouth."
Moumita Bhattacharjee of BollywoodLife.com said: "Piku is all about Bengalis penchant to stay connected to their roots wherever they are. From pictures of Satyajit Ray to dancing to tunes of Manna Dey's Jibone Ki Pabona from Teen Bhuner Pare, it has everything one will identify with and there lies its biggest flaw and flair."
Sarita A Tanwar of DNA said: "Piku is one of the best films of the year. It's a must-watch for the thundering trio of Bachchan, Padukone and Khan."
Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid-Day said: "Do watch this one, more so, if you are a Bengali. I bet you won't stop smiling for most of the two plus hour duration."
Srijana Mitra Das of The Times of India said: "Don't miss this gentle rollercoaster ride. Piku's motions and emotions must be enjoyed."
Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted: Watched #Piku. A simple-n-sweet tale that's deftly executed and brought to life by Shoojit Sircar. A film that demands an applause.
