It is a typical morning in the Banerjee household. Piku is running late for work, man servant Budhan is preparing breakfast and seventy year old hypochondriac Bhashkor is checking his meds and complaining of constipation. Piku tries to convince her father to “go and try”, but Bhashkor doesn’t feel “the pressure”. Piku rushes out the door and promptly takes out her frustration on the taxi driver, accusing him of being late when he has actually been waiting for 20 minutes. And so, we are introduced to the daily routine at the Banerjees in this simple slice-of-life story that deals with our motions and emotions in a most amusing way. Shoojit Sircar has touched a universal nerve as every human being is familiar with the annoyance of constipation. His slightly dysfunctional Bengali family will in some way remind you of your own.
