Piku (Deepika Padukone) is a young professional who is trying hard to balance her work and personal life – which means taking care of her father, Bhaskor (Amitabh Bachchan), who suffers from chronic constipation and gets into frequent quarrels with his house help. Situations Force Piku and Bhaskor to take a trip to their ancestral house in Calcutta, during which Piku and Bhaskor meet Rana Chaudhary, a taxi driver. The three embark on a Road trip that’s as memorable as it’ informative to the three – as the three bond and reveal their innermost characteristics to each other. What follows is a warm and heartwarming tale of human relations and most importantly the relationship between a father and a daughter.
