PIKU

The Movie: PIKU

piku-poster1-embed

Caption: Not for YOU unless you relate the situation in your life

Savvy’s Rating: 2 / 5

Zephyr: –

Brush off:

  1. Dad talking about daughter’s relationships  (lil detailed info) with strangers (who are interested in her)
  2. Ewww too much info on stool and its color

Savvy’s Rede:

Flash News: All theatre owners are upset as PIKU has lowered their food business. Either they are running out of theatres and/or not willing to eat anything after 3 hrs of poop talk 😛

Story in a nutshell (spoiler alert):

PIKU, a responsible daughter who is sacrificing her life to take care of his father → Piku’s father is an orthodox, boring personality who’s suffering with constipation. His conversations revolve all the times around his constipation and challenges → He’s not happy with daughter even though she’s readily available for him → As father and daughter travel to Kolkata to take care of their house’s final deal, interesting incidents happen that shows others view their family and how parents behave when they are old

Piku touches on few things (my takeAway from the movie):

  1. Parents become restless and stubborn as they grow old
  2. Parents’ world is very small and they seek lot of attention
  3. Parent’s may not be happy/satisfied, most of the times, in spite of spending kids spending their time. Well, it talks about not judging them but understanding them
  4. Few kids in this world still dedicate their lives to take care of their parents sacrificing their priorities
  5. If Parent’s like someone (outsiders), they don’t express. They actually want others to understand them
  6. Life is short. Don’t cut short on anything. Eat well, Live until you die!

What worked well:

{I’m not really sure if I have to write anything here, other than the fact that it’s a courageous project by the makers.} Appreciate the efforts of production house and the casting.

Savvy’s Punch:

Let it go, let it go! Not suitable for all types of audiences.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR)

The Movie: Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR)

maxresdefault

Caption: Very delightful!

Savvy’s Rating: 4 / 5

Zephyr: Kangana, Kangana and Kangana!

Brush off:

  1. Tanu’s bathrobe scene during a marriage alliance for her cousin
  2. Madhavan – Yes, I understand that Heroes doesn’t need 6 packs to win hearts. But, I guess, they don’t want family pack either. He looked exhaustive at times. Other than his killer smile, didn’t really caught my attention on his acting
  3. Jimmy Shergill’s character ends abruptly

Savvy’s Rede:

Tanu Weds Manu Returns (TWMR) is all about Kangana. She has surpassed her previous performance(s). She’s in no race of commercial cinema. It looks like she’s choosing her movies smartly to make a place in audiences’ hearts.

Tanu’s arrogance take a new turn in this movie. A perfect check for her is Kusum’s attitude. At one side, Tanu is shown as an urban girl who’s spoilt. She’s too urbanised to handle for mass audience. To balance the table, Kusum’s character has etched very well. Kangana has justified her roles well but got more browny points for Kusum’s role over Tanu’s.

Story in a nutshell (spoiler alert):

Tanu and Manu doesn’t stand each other → Tanu and Manu lands in India at different times → Manu falls in love for a Tanu-lookalike, who’s an athelete by name Kusum → Manu and Kusum’s marriage is fixed

What did Tanu do that Manu wanted to marry another girl? What happens in the end?

For a regular movie goer, climax may be predictable. However, watching Kangana’s performance all through was an  eye treat. She has kept audience glued to the chairs. Watch the movie and get clarified all your questions.

P.S. it appeared to me that Tanu has changed her feelings for Manu due to ego issues than love. It’s like “I don’t like you and I don’t want others like you too. Can’t handle your happiness” types .. 🙂 If you don’t stuck with this confusion, movie goes smooth for you. Kusum’s role is more of a scape-goat than anything else.

What worked well:

1) Screenplay

2) Songs

3) Awesome performances by main cast

Savvy’s Punch:

Don’t wait, Go and Watch now!
