"Masterpiece" and "Superb" have been used by movie buffs to describe the slice-of-life family entertainer "Piku". If the Shoojit Sircar-directorial has impressed the film fraternity, it has also struck a chord with masses.

"Piku", which released on May 8, explores relationship between a father (Amitabh Bachchan) and a daughter (Deepika Padukone).

Celebrities like Ranveer Singh, Shraddha Kapoor, Anurag Basu, Neha Dhupia and Nimrat Kaur have already tagged the film as "marvelous", "gem" and "outstanding".

And like the stars, the masses can't stop praising the medium budget film, which has minted over Rs.25 crore in its opening weekend.

"@ShoojitSircar - My parents are raving about #Piku. My dad said it's a masterpiece... thnx for bringing smile on their faces #pikuthefilm," one user Pritish tweeted.

Another user, Rini Chatterjee posted: I watched #Piku on Friday. Still thinking bout it. Some things really impact your life in a positive way.

Mudit Singhvi said: @SrBachchan and @deepikapadukone are the heart and soul of the film. Master story telling by @ShoojitSircar and @writeonj. Superb!! #Piku

Swapnil Belorkar added: @ShoojitSircar Sir, you are really a gem of bollywood. What a direction no words for it. Take a bow. #Piku

In an interview with IANS, before the release of "Piku", Irrfan Khan, who plays an owner of a taxi service company in the film, said more than the box office collection, it's important that a movie should hit the right chord in the viewers' mind.

"'Piku' is a film with different kind of entertainment. It's not just about box office collections, it's about telling a story which will stay with you for a long time."

"'Piku' as a film will give you a lot to think about. It's not the kind of commercial cinema where you can't relate to the fictional person. 'Piku' is a new definition of commercial cinema which reflects everybody's life," the 48-year-old said.

Apart from the trio, "Piku" also stars Moushumi Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav and Jisshu Sengupta.
