Beautifully capturing a slice of ordinary life, Piku tells a universal story of the shifting dynamics between parent and child. Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan are united on a road journey, in this heart-warming tale of familial love that never once loses its way.
Piku (Deepika Padukone) is a working woman, balancing the demands of her career as an architect with caring for her 70-year-old, hypochondriac father Bhashkor Banerjee (Amitabh Bachchan) and indulging his daily obsession with his bowel movements. When they embark on an impromptu road trip to Kolkata, Rana (Irrfan Khan) - the owner of a taxi firm and the only person willing to put up with the temperamental pair – becomes unwittingly embroiled in the volatile father-daughter relationship.
